Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5500 All-In-One InkJet Printer
When I print a photo, the black ink doesn't print.
I bought new cartridges thinking the ones that came with the printer were faulty. But I have the same problem with the new cartridges. Weird thing is that the black ink shows up every once in awhile. Any suggestions?
Inkjet printers nozzles can dry out and get clogged. If the units
printhead cleaning does not work you can remove the printhead and
manually clean it. There are many ways to do this just be careful and
do some research online. My personal method for cleaning any inkjet
printhead is to use distilled or de-ionized water (i hear windex works
as well). You can soak the printhead nozzles or you can use a Lint-free
cloth. Wet the cloth and wipe the printhead nozzles from front to back
or back to front following the grain of the nozzle lines you see on the
printhead. do not use a circular motion or wipe left to right across
the nozzles. Also be sure to update your Firmware to the latest version
from the kodak site. Just incase there was a problem in the code that
wasnt completely capping the printhead when its idle. If it never
recovers you can contact kodak and see about getting a new printhead.
Hope this helps and goodluck!
