the kodak system uses a countdown system that assumes you use a certain amount of ink re sheet regegardless of how much ink you accutualy use, the counter system starts everyt ime you turn the printer on, so the only way to extend the life of the ink is not to turn the printer off netween use, which the domestic useres do not of course do what i did throw the printer away and get a new one not Kodak sh*t
Make sure you install the correct type of KODAK Ink Cartridge for your printer. Currently we offer two types of ink cartridges (10 Series and 30 Series). Installing the wrong type of ink cartridge may result in this error. You will need to install a new, correct type of KODAK Ink Cartridge. NOTE: For more information, see Which ink cartridges to buy for all-in-one printer.
If you are using the correct type of KODAK Ink Cartridge, reinstall the color ink cartridge.
Wait until the printhead is idle and silent, then pinch the latch on the color ink cartridge with your thumb and forefinger and lift it out of the printhead.
Install the color ink cartridge back into the printer, making sure to press down on the thumb tab until it clicks into place.
Close the printer access door. For printers with LCDs, follow the instructions on the LCD screen. For more information on installing ink cartridges, see the Extended User Guide for your printer. Review Maintaining Your Printer - Replacing ink cartridges.
If the error continues, restart your printer:
Turn off the printer by pressing the power button.
Wait five seconds.
Turn on the printer.
If the error continues, and you have extra, new KODAK Ink Cartridges on-hand, try to install a new ink cartridge (or a set of new ink cartridges).
Open the ink cartridge door above the paper output tray on your Lexmark printer.
Push the release tab behind the ink cartridge to remove it. Pull the cartridge straight out of the ink compartment.
Pull the protective tape off the bottom of the new ink cartridge. Insert the new cartridge into the compartment and press it back until it locks into the compartment.
Close the ink cartridge door. Push the arrow button on the keypad to select either "Standard" or "High Yield" based on the type of cartridge you installed. Press "Select" when the proper type displays.
I haven't tried the Colour/B&W/Stop button combination suggested above, but on a Canon MG5250, switching off, then on, and immediately holding down the 'stop' button for 20-30 secs does seem to disable the block. After that the colour concerned has no indicator. It seems that refilled cartridges will woork for a few refills (showing low ink on the indicator) before requiring the permanent fix.
Press your printer's button to position the ink heads for replacement
Then gently pull out the problematic ink cartridge.
Turn the printer OFF to reset the printer's memory.
After about 3 minutes, turn ON your printer and it should now ask for the missing ink cartridge.
Now gently put on the problematic ink cartridge in place.
Let the printer re-charge the inks and clean the ink heads afterward through the printer's maintenance program installed in your computer. (Go to "Printer's and Faxes, right click on your installed printer, then click "Printer's Preferences. Go to the "maintenance tab" and click on something like Print Head Cleaning.)
Many printers always use a small amount of each color even if you are only printing black, to prevent the color nozzles from drying out and getting clogged (and, it forces you to buy more ink, which is a profit center for printer manufacturers)
For this reason, some printers will not work if ANY of the cartridges are empty.
It should work again if you replace the color cartridge. Make sure to select "black ink only" or the option to print in black and white or grayscale to minimize color ink usage. It may still use a little, but that's OK.
The printer is very good.I ve been using it for approx 1 year now.The printer works on a combination of both black as well as colour ink cartridges.If any of the cartridge is empty,printer will not print.Kindly call Kodak with your problems at 1800 421 6699 and they will take care of the issue for you.
exchanged the black cartridge (57): the printer told me there was a problem with it, that I should remove it and re-insert it. I did, the ink button still blicks. After several efforts the printer started to work again, printed one document and then told me there was a problem with the colour cartridge. I removed it, re-inserted it several times. Finally a test page was printed - everything was okay.
Then the printer refused to print anything - the yellow LED lamp blicks continuously. Have turned the printer on and off, have also shut down the computer and re-started.
The only thing that will work now is the black cartridge, if I remove the colour one.
