    Have you removed that tape that cames under the cartridge, protecting the ink holes?

K...Trust the solution. Try these steps. Open the printer, remove the ink and remove the printhead (See User's guide). Reseat the printhead and the ink cartridges. The printer will come up with an error message that requires calibration. Do the calibration and scan the sheet that prints right after by pushing the start button. In the menu options, clean the printhead. Do one basic and one deep. Print a demo sheet (another menu option) to see if the quality has gotten better. If it has not call Kodak AiO Tech support. You will need a replacement printhead.

Changed ink and now the printer wont print


The old ink has probably dried, plugging the jets. Try going through the cleaning cycle (several times if necessary). If it begins to print at all then let the printer set overnight and try cleaning again.

My kodak 5500 AIO easy share printer will not print black ink.


Hi,

follow the step by step solution from kodak.

Choose All-in-one printer and then Print quality and follow the further steps. I think it's a problem with your printhead.

MFC 790cw will not print in black.


garetg,

Your issue with the black ink only is because the print head my be dried up. Witch me that the ink cant flow to the "paper" fast enough. So by time to rollers eject the paper, the ink cant print on the paper. I had the same problem with my Kodak EasyShare 5300 All-In-One. So I contacted Kodak and they are sending me a new one. Try doing the same. Contact your manufacture and ask them..... :)

Much Regards,

Kyle

New black installed; will not print in black ink. Everything else prints!


hi, it is possible that the black cart was not installed properly. Try reseating the black cart and see if it works. You can also try to calibrate the printer. you can do this by pressing the menu button then go down to calibrate printer. after that it would also help to perform a deep clean which can also be found on that same menu. then try to print. If all these fails, try to call the kodak hotline 800.421.6699

Black ink is very light


This may well be a printhead problem. I had to replace mine and several other people have posted similar problems. Call Kodak's tech support, and they will walk you through verifying this. They shipped me a new printhead 2nd day air free of charge.
