Hi You can Try 2 things.

There is some foreign object blocking your cartridges carriage that disables it from moving. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there



Next try.

It may be a piece of paper or a scotch tape or a staple wire.
Solution 1:
Clean the timing strip.

Solution 2:
The purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) may be not lubricated well enough .

Lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps); this repair probably require to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism.


Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

When requesting print from my wordpad, I get the response "printer not detected" Going into the maintenance program it says "congratulations the printer is fixed " but still not printing. This is a kodak...


OK, first and most simple thing to try; fire up your PC in to Windows and turn on the printer. Unplug the USB cable from the back of the PC and plug it in to ANOTHER USB port. It should re-detect the printer. Once this has finished (you should get a message in the bottom right of the screen down by the clock), try a print and see what happens. Scott.
