This dumb thing just stated saying printer is not resonding and flashes yellow. why is it that when my color runs out i cant print even in black the stupid printer wont do anything i need to print something but it is in black not color so why should it matter if the color needs replacing? Please help before i throw it out the window because ever scene i got it it hasnt worked goo. I think they have made yet another piece of ****! half the time it wont even turn on...
With the kodak printer there is only a single printhead.. When cleaning is done all nozzles are fired. if one color is out of ink and those nozzles fire they can burn out. Inkjet uses electricity to rapid boil the ink to make is squirt out. The ink acts like the water in your cars radiator, if there is no ink and the nozzle keeps firing it will fry. That is why you have to have ink in both cartridges.
As for your printer not responding you could try a different USB port. USB ports on the back of PC are best. A powered USB hub is even better. Try disconnecting all USB devices then re-connect only the printer and see if its responding.
