Re: Poor colour also missing small txt
Remove the black and color ink cartridges. Right above where the black ink cartridge was, in the top left hand corner of the printhead, push up towards the ceiling and you should be able to push a button that releases the printhead. Place the printhead right back into the printer and push straight back on the back wall. You should hear a loud snap. Replace the ink cartridges which should snap as well. Close the printer. After about a minute or so the printer will ask you to do a calibration. Insert a paper and press start. Scan the calibration sheet. After that, in the menu, do a printhead clean. Do one basic and one deep. Print a demo sheet to see if anything has changed. If the picture looks better, continue to do cleans. In the event that it does not, the printhead will need to be replaced and since the printer is still under warranty, Kodak specialists will try to overnight you a printhead. The whole process is short and free. The number for Kodak AiO Support is 1 800 421 6699.

create a doccument with four identical lines of text.
the text should be as follows:
your text in the colour Black, the cyan, then yellow then magentta
see if they print in the colours you used, if they are all wrong then delete all drivers associated with the printer and delete the printer, then follow the install proceedure again to reinstall, if just one colour is wrong the it is most likely a deffective cartridge.
The problem with your printer is the print head. Usually you have to run the clean nozzle thing 5 or 6 times to clean the print head nozzles and if there's still no improvement after that then print head needs to be changed for the printer to work properly. The bad news is that a print head costs almost as much as a new printer.
Inkjet printer inks are dye-based, and that's the reason.
Perhaps this will help explain things. You know those little boxes of food colouring you can buy in the supermarket - the ones that have four little bottles of colour - red, blue, yellow and green. Within reason you can combine these to turn white icing into most colours. Use nothing and the icing is still white or use everything and the icing will go a black-brown colour. Use a couple of drops of red and blue and you'll get purple.
But if you start with black icing, there's nothing you can add that will make it anything but black.
It's the same with your inkjet printer - because white is obtained by not having any ink print on the white paper. But of course that only works when the paper is white. Naturally you'll get different results on all colours of paper, decreasing as the paper gets darker in colour. Print blue on yellow paper and you should get green printing.
The only way to print in white is to do what commercial printers do - use opaque inks and include a white ink in the process. And as far as I know there's no commercial ink that will do that with an inkjet printer.
I can hear lots of you muttering "Rubbish. Of course you can print light colours on dark paper." Well all I can say is, have fun experimenting, but you won't be able to do it.
About the only way to achieve the sort of result you may be after is to print the job then trim it and paste it in place. For instance, if you want to print onto a black or dark-coloured T-shirt then print onto white transfer material, trim the print to size and iron it in place.
Hi alexgallo01 Do you get other colours except pink? If that is the case,reasons could be: 1. there is not enough RED or BLUE in the cartridge. 2. you haven't selected pink colour on the text or images you are trying to print. If you are typing a document highlight the text you want in pink, and choose PINK color for the font. Then print the document. The printer will use color closest to your choice, if it does not have the exact color. Hope this will help. If it help you, please give a rating Cheers luciana44
I would just set the text color to red or blue in your document.
Depending on the program that you use it could have different steps.
Here is steps in Word:
You can change the Colour of your text by highlighting the text and then clicking on the 'A' symbol on the toolbar. This will change your text to the Colour which is underneath the symbol 'A' on the toolbar. To change the Colour, click on the arrow next to the symbol and select one of the colours from the small box which appears. This will change the Colour of your text as soon as you click on the Colour.
Another way of changing the Colour of your text is to go to 'Format' and then click on 'Font'. The font window should appear. Select a Colour from the 'Colour' section. You can see a preview of what the text will look like in the box below. You can also add various effects to your text by using the options in the 'Effects' section. This will also allow you to see a preview in the box at the bottom of the window.
Hope this helps. Please remember to rate this information.

Make sure the drums are properly seated in their cradels, and if posible, avoid designing with white small text in heavy solid areas that are made up of process colours. For reverse type in a black background, use spot color black rather than rich black. Other than than printing on a not as heavy card, that is about all you can do.
