If the boundary between the blank half and the printed half is a sharp line, a wire to the print head may be broken or disconnected. If the boundary is irregular (wanders up and down an 1/8 inch or so), the problem is most likely a broken plastic lever on the end of the shaft that moves the print head. The plastic lever is keyed to the shaft by a flat on the shaft. The plastic has a tendency to split at the edge of the flat, resulting in the lever slipping on the shaft. This in turn results in one side of the print head not contacting the paper with sufficient pressure. The other end of the shaft has a thick plastic sector gear which is much less likely to break.

I fixed mine by making a clamp from a metal spacer (made from split tube about 1/8 inch long) and force fitting it over the part of the plastic lever that fits on the metal shaft (on the end towards the inside of the unit). There is just enough clearance to do this without hitting the print head frame.

To remove the plastic lever, first remove two screws from back of unit, then pull up on top of unit, unplug two ribbon cables from circuit board and remove top. Then unplug two remaining ribbon cables from circuit board, and three screws holding circuit board. Lift circuit board and fan/fan-holder as one piece. Finally, disengage tab on plastic retainer on end of metal shaft, rotate tab straight up and lift shaft up and to the side (may require a little wiggling). The plastic lever slides off the metal shaft.

try this no promises
unplug the power cord for 5 sec
paper should feed out after resetting
DONT EVER PULL ON THE PAGE WITHOUT THE MACHINE EXITING IT FIRST. THE TABS ON THE END OF THE PAPER BREAKS OFF INSIDE THE PRINTER DOCK.
check the back of the dock for the photo to eject as well as the front.
check paper size with new one after it exits to make sure no extra pieces are stuck in printer. good luck
DONT PULL ON PAGE JAM (UNPLUG FIRST(RESETS THE PAGE OUT THE BACK/FRONT))

Does the test print also print only half of the printer? If so, give Kodak a call - bad printer
If the test print works, try changing the usb cable.

Printouts are missing top/bottom half of picture. Tried replacing cartridge and/or paper but to no avail.


make sure on your program that you are using to print your pictures, that you have the correct photo size. You could have it set for like a 4X6 for an example, where you might need a 5X7
