My printer only prints orange images

Sounds as if the printhead of the colour cartridge has dried up. I would try the following:
1. Fold a piece of kitchen tissue (or any other non fibrous tissue) a couple of times and dab it under a tap to create a small damp patch. For best results make sure the water is warm.
2. Take the cartridge out of the printer and hold the damp patch over the printhead for 30-60 seconds.
3. You should now hopefully have a small ink soaked patch on the tissue with traces of all the relevant colours.
4. Then wipe the printhead several times on the dry part of the tissue and you should start to see the colours come through.
5. Reinstall and run one more head cleaning cycle.
If this doesn't help I would recommend replacing the cartridge, as it has the printhead attached to it.

Blue and yellow will not print have replaced ink cartridges

Manually cleaning the printhead isnt difficult and could solve your problem. You need distilled or de-ionized water, tap water might work but i dont recomend it. You need a lint free cloth, dont use paper towels or anything that will leave material behind that will clogg the nozzls (a clean soft tshit should work tex Wipe lint free cloths work the best) . Heating the water will help. Remove the printhead look at the nozzles on the buttom. you should see 6 lines in a yellow area. you want to wipe with these lines not accross them. do not scrub or use circular motion. Wet the cloth area your going to wipe with well. put some pressure but dont break it and wipe a few times slowly. you can also soak the nozzles in warm or hot distilled water just only in very shallow water just enough to touch the nozzles do not submerge the whole printhead. you can also google manually cleaning inkjet printheads just use your best judgement some things people do to clean a printhead might damage them. If after manual cleaning and using the built in cleaning the prints1.gif still dont come out right call kodak and request a new printhead. I hope this helps! Don't Let this road bump turn you away from these printers they print nice prints and have low cost ink. Kodak and or I am not responsible for any data loss or any damage to any equipment that occurs as a direct or indirect result of following the procedures described above.

You probably need a new purge assembly, it's supposed to cap the printhead to stop evaporation while shut down, and also clean and prime the printhead during printing. You can wipe the caps over on the right with a damp rag, but you'll get some ink on yourself.
