Buy them at a official EPSON service center or throw away the printer and buy a HP.
Actual EPSON printers uses 5 ml ink cartridges for each color and black. HP printers has the same volume cartridges but there are only 2, tricolor and black.
If a HP printing head becomes clogged (don't worry, it almost never happens), just throw away the cartridge and install another (the print head comes with the ink cartridge). If a EPSON print head becomes clogged you have no other choice than buying another printer because EPSON's print heads are expensive and become discontinued 12 months after the printer model was launched to the market.

Also, HP Printers are cheaper than those from EPSON and offers excellent print quality on any paper. Compare a 10 years old HP printer with actual EPSON's and the HP has the sharpest black printing. The color is another story.

Clean or replace print head


The printhead is a non-replaceable part. There is a printhead cleaning procedure available through the device's menus. You might want to try performing the procedure numerous times.

After cleaning printhead printer says printhead needs cleaning


If that's the case, the printhead will need to be replaced. If your printer is still under warranty, you can contact our technical support team to have the printhead replaced. If not, you can purchase a printhead online at http://bit.ly/IZYhWo.

Also, make sure that you're using genuine Lexmark cartridges. Refilled/remanufactured cartridges might damage your printhead.

There are long axis print voids. Does the print head need to be replaced?


Before replacing your printhead, try cleaning the printer, run the cleaning card and also clean the printhead using the alcohol saturated swab, zebra part number 105909-169. In some cases that will fix your issue, if not your printhead needs to be replaced. If replacing your printhead, please make sure your card stock are clean and don't have sharp edges as that could be the cause for a scratched/burned pixel on the printhead.

I haven't used my Kodak 5500 printer in a little over a week and now I'm trying to print out pictures and with a new black cartridge, it's like there is no black ink. However, I just printed out a word...


Since that you already did a good troubleshooting cleaning the printhead and calibrating It and replacing the printhead., I just want to ask this How many times you already replace a printhead if its newly installed it means the problem is in the printer itself and for that you need to call kodak for printer repair toll free 1 800 421 6699

Now if the replacement printhead is more than a month and you already did all the troubleshooting it means the nozzle of the printhead is clogged you need to call kodak for printhead replacement
