Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5500 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Have just purchased new printer.
Photo's print with regular horizontal lines 2mm apart all the way down (in blue)
A4 word docs print with lines across and with a shadow behind and beneath all characters in all fonts.
Have installed software from both internet and cd having removed first installation.
Have calibrated printer 3 times and cleaned printhead from menu settings.
Same fault applies to copy function when printer not connected to PC.
Help - is printer faulty or am I faulty
It sounds like you have a bad contact between the printhead and the printer. First remove the inktanks. then remove the printhead. Now re-insert the printhead and remove it - do this a few times. What this is doing is scraping off anything that is blocking the full contact between the printhead and the printer. It should only need to be re-inserted like 3-5 times. Then leave the printhead in and install the inktanks and print again. If this does not work call Kodak and request a replacement printhead (they should not charge you its not your fault this is happening) or return the unit to where you purchaced it and ask for a new one. Once you get rid of the problem you will like the printer they do print great quality photos for such a low cost ink.
