Sounds like print head needs replacing, try the troubleshooting guide on Kodak website to confirm, appears to be a common problem with these Kodak printers, if new it should be covered under warrenty although if not they are expensive

Black ink will not print


You may have blocked print head nozzles.
Try the printer maintenance to clear the printer nozzles.
After several deep cleaning attempts and there is no improvements in the printthen a new print head is required.
A new print head maybe expensive and it maybe more cost effective to purchase anew printer.

New ink cartridge but not printing green on esp 5 kodak all inone


you need to use the head cleaning tool in the printer properties, youll need to keep running it untill it runs clear and it uses alot of your ink while it does it.

youll find the cleaning option if you go to your
start/settings/printers and faxes, right click on your printer and go to printer preferences then maintinence

Faded/bad coloring on color printer/scanner - Kodak ESP5


Take out both the colour and black ink cartridge and look on there sides as there would be a number written on the side.......this is to determine if the ink cartridges are genuine or not.........here are few numbers for the ink cartridges if they match and still have issue then its a print head issue else bad ink cartridges probably refilled........
