    Try cleaning the nozzle of your print head for dry or lose toner before reinstalling. Run a test print test before printing your photo. See more troubleshooting tips here.

This is not a problem with the ink cartridges but the printhead.
Please follow the below mentioned steps:

  • Reseat the ink and the printhead. If you need help in doing so, please go to the link http://faqs.kodak.com/atg/faq/attachments/AUR1780-2.pdf
  • After reseating, it would ask you to calibrate for which it will display the instructions on the lcd screen.
  • Once you are through with the calibration, try celaning the printhead by choosing the Clean printhead option in the menu and do a Deep clean.
  • Then, try printing a Demo sheet by choosing Print demo sheet option from the menu.
If the problem still remains, you need a new printhead which you can get from Kodak free of cost.

Poor photo printing quality with new color cartridge


Shaking these cartridges does nothing except give you a little exercise. If this is a brand new HP cartridge you are having problems with I would return it to the store you purchased it from. HP brand cartridges should not give you these problems right out of the box. The print defects you are seeing are due to a dried up or clogged print head. If you like you can try hydrating the print head on a water soaked paper towel until the ink starts flowing, but there's a risk you will cross contaminate the colors.

Lines thru photos


Try to clean the nozzles with the printer troubleshooter. It will force all the nozzles to print at maximum quality and will clean the clogged nozzles. If the procedure fail, then try again. This happens when you are not using the printer for long periods of time. If cleaning nozzles will not be helpful, then remove the color cartridge from his place and put it with the printing head in warm distilled water for 30 minutes.When the water is coloured by the ink, take the cartridge and touch the printing head with a soft paper towell. If a clear line of colour is printed on the towell, then is OK, put it back in the printer and print a test page. If is not , try again with patience.

Poor quality photos


Usually indicates poor toner. Have you had your toner replaced recently. Refilled toners are notorious for this.
I have had this problem before....replaced toners with a good supplier or manufacturer. Problem solved.

Epson Photo R265 Lines every 2.5 cm


Check status monitor see if cartridges are low or nearly empty , if new or full take out all cartridges and soak nozzles upright in cleaning solution overnight , or untill ink starts to bleed out:

Dab dry and re - fit , make up a A4 paper page with 6 colour bands about 1" high x 8" wide and print about 4 to 6 pages ,
check which colours are poor , if improvement is observed run
again a few times:

If one colour is poor take out that cartridge and soak again for a few hours , try again:

If no improvement replace with new cartridge or use a cleaning cartridge ( available on-line ) :

Using the head-cleaning utility shortens the life of the printer as the printer is set to lock-out after a pre-set use of the cleaning facility: and will have to be re-set instore:
