Most of the times, in such an issue, the problem is the printhead of the printer.
Please follow the below mentioned steps:

  • Reseat the ink and the printhead. If you need help inreseating the printhead, go to the link http://faqs.kodak.com/atg/faq/attachments/AUR1780-2.pdf
  • After reseating, it will ask you for a calibnration sheet and will give you the instructions for the same on the printer's lcd.
  • After you are through with the calibration, go to the Clean Printhead option in the Menu of the printer and do a deep clean.
  • Try printing a demo sheet from the printer and check.
  • If the issue persists, you can call Kodak to get a free printhead replacement.

Prints faded


Hello mvjv,

To solve the faded prints you need to clean the printhead twice by going to the software and click the "?" mark icon on the upper right corner of the software window and then under General Links select Maintenance then choose Clean Printhead - do it at least thrice to unclog the printhead system. Then try making prints... If still cannot solve call Kodak Technical Support.

I hope I have been some of help.
