Other cases is the print head is dirty or defect thus needs to be cleaned or repaired in order to work.

if you used and fell victom of refilled solutions please replace the print head in this printer.

Kodak printer are designed in such a way that if you even don't print from them, everytime you on-off the printer the cleaning process goen on, which results in emtying the ink cartridges. Try installing new ink cartridges. if u still get the same ink error. Then the printer will be replaced.

Full ink cartridges reading as emty on cx5700f

Did you purchase new cartridges from the vendor of the printer (e.g. Lexmark, Canon, Epson or HP) or are you using refilled or third party cartridges?

If you are not using factory new cartridges, Please replace them with factory new ones and let me know if that corrects the problem.

If you are using factory new cartridges, contact the vendor and tell them you need defective cartridges replaced.
