It seems, Printhead has come loose or has gone corrupt.
Try reseating the printhead, do calibration. It should help you out.
1. Take both ink cartridges out.
2.Take printhead out
3. Wait for 10 seconds.
4. Put the Printhead back in.
5. Wait for 5 seconds.
6. Put the cartridges back in.
7. Go to Maintenance (Printer Conrol Panel or ? Help on your Home /Center software) and clean printhead.
NOTE: If issue still persists, pls contact kodak for printhead replacement.
Best Of Luck

SOURCE: Printer keeps asking for printer
Where is the error message shown? On the printer or on the computer? I think it's showing on the computer.
You can try this, Remove all the cartridges, memory card, unplug the power cord, disconnect the usb cable, unplug the power from the outlet (if you wish to clean the cartridges, you can clean the Gold contact with a cotton bud dampen with alcohol, don't ever touch the contacts or the head with your hand, also clean the contacts on the printer). After about 20 minutes, reinstall everything (if you have memory card installed, don't install it, you can do it later). Now press the Menu button on the printer and navigate the settings using the Left Arrow or Right Arrows until Reset All Menu Settings is visible in the front display. Press the OK button. A message will appear on the display confirming that all menu preferences have been reset.
If this doesn't help, try installing another cartridge/s and check the outcome.
It'll be also helpful to uninstall the drivers/software and reinstall them after the both the printer and the pc are restarted.
If you need further help, let me know.
Thanks for using FixYa.
