I've run across a few stubborn printers that do this. Sometimes it doesn't recognize the button push etc. The easiest way to do this is to unplug the printer and manually move the print head to the middle and then replace the cartridges. It will be stiff but shouldn;t take too much force to move it. When you turn plug it in after changeing the carts then it will zero itself again and work normally.

Put new ink in printer. got the message "carriage jam" checked ink to see if correctly installed...it was. tried to use it again and same message appeared. Did as was instructed on Kodak...


Open the print carriage access door. Check for any packing material that may be blocking the internal components. Check for an orange shipping lock that may still be in place on the left side. Pull the shipping lock out, if present, and discard.

Remove and reinstall the cartridges to make sure they are properly installed. Lift the front center of the print carriage access door to open it. Lift the door up until it locks into an open position. Press down on a print cartridge and allow it to spring back up. Lift the cartridge out of the printer. Do the same for the other cartridge. Slide the black cartridge into the slot on the left and the color cartridge into the slot on the right. Press down on each one to lock it into place. Lower the print carriage access door.

Check the print cartridges to make sure the protective tape has been removed from the ink nozzles. Remove the cartridges from the printer. Remove any tape or labels. Replace the cartridges into the printer.

Push in on the tab on the left side of the clean-out door on the back of the printer to open the door. Lift the door out of the printer. Check for any paper jams. Jammed paper can block the printer cartridge carriage from moving. Pull any jammed paper out.

I don't know how to get the cartridge moved to the center so I can change it


Normally, the Cartridge ( or Carriage ) should come in center when you open the front access door.

If this does not happen, turn off the printer, Open the front access door and move the carriage manually to center to remove the cartridges, later power on the unit and you should be able to find the cartridges move to center for replacement.
