Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5500 All-In-One InkJet Printer
there's a couple things you can try:
pull out the cartridges, and clean the contacts off with q-tip and water - also clean the contacts on the carraige. sometimes if it's not getting a clear signal, it can get confused about what it's reading.

I had the same problem during setup. I tried the sharp rapping and four-letter words solution, but that didn't work for me. I called customer service and after a looooooong hold (apparently everyone in the universe is having problems), I talked to someone who transferred me to the "print head" part of tech support. During the conversation I had so much trouble understanding the guy that I said I wanted to take him off speaker phone so I could hear him better, and I accidentally cut off the call. Wouldn't it be nice if call center people were actually understandable in English.
Nevertheless, he did give me a couple of instructions before I lost the call, and after I did them things worked right. Here is what he said to do:
1. Remove the black and color cartridges.
2. Place finger in upper left hand corner of print head case and gently slide it down. That is when I lost the call, but as I did that the print head case easily slipped out.
I reinstalled it, put the cartridges back in, closed the printer and, voila, the calibration sequence started.
The tech guy took my number "in case we got disconnected," so he could call me back, but so far he didn't call back. Nevertheless, my printer's working. Next step is to hook it up to my computer.
Hope this helps someone.

If you take the cartridge to walgreens, etc... they can clear the chip. There is none for home use
give them a call !

Printer companies use different chemicals in their inks based on print head diameter and heat used to eject ink, using diffrent ink not supported for your printer can clog up the print head and make it useless.

Kodak printer works with genuine Kodak cartridges and that too brand new not refilled cartridges. The brand new cartridges have a certain code that is recognised by the Printer.Kindly buy genuine cartridges as the printer may be damaged by Non comaptible cartridges.
