This is a very simple procedure. Advance to the print head menu on the printers screen and scroll to replace printheads and press enter.

The machine will move the print head carriage into a position on the left side rail that has a small access door. Lift the window and access the printheads behind the access door. The printheads have a loop to grasp to pull upwards and out. look at the diagram and instruction that come with your new printhead.

Replace the printhead, be sure to take the protective plastic off. close the door and window and follow the instruction to replace the printhead cleaner which is located behind the left front panel.

Hp designjet 5500 error codes


Error code 0C0040 is caused by the drop detector not detecting drops from at least 2 print heads in the same area. Run print head recovery on all the print heads and see if that clears up the problem. If not, then clean or replace the drop detector. Drop detector can be ordered from: http://www.lpscomputer.com/p-2512-c6072-60179-designjet-5000-5500-drop-detector.aspx

Only blank pages are coming out of kodak 5500 printer


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out in the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages,then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.

Just a thought, have a look at the Kodak web site, follow links for support and downloads, see if there's a firmware upgrade for you printer.

If not, email their techs via the contact us link, ask them if this is what the printer should do, if not, how to resolve the issue.

Because it looks like your maintenance company doesn't have much idea.

My 5500 print quality is poor for photo's, document printing is fair Worked good for about 9 months, has fresh ink


Kodak machines, which I'm told are built by Lexmark, have very poorly made print heads. If you are experiencing print quality issues you need to contact Kodak and make them replace your print heads. We have one customer who has had to replace them twice since he has owned the machine, which hasn't been very long.

I think you'll need a new printhead if it's not printing color or B&W. Call kodak at 1.800.421.6699 to get one.
