to fix up such problem
Clean the printhead, then print and
Verify that inkjet paper is loaded in the paper trays.
On your desktop, start the KODAK All-in-One Home Center, then select the Help [?] icon.
From the Help menu, select Maintenance, then select Printhead Cleaning. The On/Off light flashes green during the cleaning procedure.
When the On/Off light glows a steady green, press Photo + Copy simultaneously to print a demo sheet
and you have to Replace ink cartridges.
IMPORTANT: Make sure you are using KODAK Ink Cartridges. Your KODAK All-in-One Printer is designed to work with KODAK Ink Cartridges. Kodak is not responsible for the compatibility or performance of either non-Kodak brand ink cartridges or refilled ink cartridges. To purchase KODAK Ink Cartridges, go to KODAK Ink Cartridges & Photo Value Packs.
Lift the printer access door, then remove the ink cartridges from the printhead.
Insert new KODAK ink cartridges into the printhead, then press down firmly until you hear the cartridges click into position.
Close the printer access door, then make the same print.
its actually the head having the old dried up clogged ink. Head cleaning is only way out and you do have to do it a number of times. The other thing is to get "cartridge flush" ink .. which is a cartridge plugged in and printed a semi transparent liquid and you see all the coloured gunk streaks on the top of the page..
Call the Kodak customer service number and tell them that you need a new printhead, that's the device that your cartridges fit into. They know that they have a problem but they will ask you to print a test sheet anyway. They should ship you a new printhead within about five days - at no cost. The printhead only seems to last about 4-6 months with my occasional use. Tell them that they should replace the ink cartridges since you used probably used up the ones in the printer trying to do the diagnostics of cleaning the printhead. They may not replace the cartridges but we should give them a hard time since it's their problem.
call the tech support finally got a number....
