    I was given some free Kodak matchprint dye cartridges Q1814A to Q1418A for the Kodak 5542 printer. The 5542 printer is the same printer as the HP 5500 but with an internal RIP. Can I use the Kodak cartridges in my HP 5500 (dye) printer as HP #81 cartridges. Will they damage my printer

The use of the catridge which you have mentioned can cause the following:

Most of prints will not have fading problems, but occasionally a customer will bring back a print after just a few weeks or months with significant fading. These prints are not just lighter; rather, the color has shifted substantially to green.

We've found two things that may be causing this:
1) The HP instant dry gloss paper. We no longer stock this paper, since it was the worst culprit (and had other problems, like sticking to itself and ruining prints)

2) Exposure to ozone. Some customers have ionizing air filters in their homes and offices, which generate ozone. The prints exposed to these devices faded rapidly (within weeks). The fading was less on satin papers, but still present.

Hi you should not try to use the kodak cartridges because it will not work and it can damage your printer, it is design for a certain kodak printer only.
Thank you for asking

    the Kodak 5542 that the cartridges are used for is an HP designjet 5500 printer with an internal RIP. The cartridges are identical to HP's #81 cartridges. HP might have put a different chip on the cartridges to prevent them from inter-changeable.

Howdo you remove printerhead from Kodak 5500


Here is the manual for reference:

Kodak 5500 Manual

If you go to page 88, these instructions are given...with pictures.

1 Make sure the AiO printer is on.
2 Open the printer access door. The carriage moves to a center position.
3 Wait until the printhead is idle and silent, then pinch the pinch latch on the ink cartridge with your thumb and forefinger and lift it out of the print head. Remove both ink cartridges and place them on a flat surface with the ink pads up.
4 Unlatch the printhead by pressing the button in the upper-left corner of the carriage.
5 Remove the old printhead.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Kodak printer 5500 will not print in black


I had the same problem and wasted money on 2 new cartridges before finding the answer on several blogs. Call Kodak Tech Support. In this case they are very good. Tell them the problem, they walk you through some steps and then give up. They will then send you out a new print head (a cheap and disposable device). I thought about buying another one for the next time things go bad but I can't find a source. They send it in 3-5 days, free. I think Kodak is embarrassed about their bad system (printheads should not go bad so fast!)
