If the printer has been sitting idle for a long time, it is possible the jets on the cartridge have gotten plugged. Try running a cleaning cycle on the printer a few times and see if that helps. If not, try replacing the cartridges.If it only has this issue when trying to print from a computer, reinstall the drivers for the printer and try printing again.

Kodak 5500 EASYSHARE All in One Printer doesnt print black color


Try this one, Turn on the printer, Take out the inks, remove the printhead, put back the printhead make sure it will snap and you hear a click, put the inks back, wait for the printer to initialize, Press the Menu button, look for Calibrate printer, then print calibration page, then scan it after. Load a regular paper. Then try to print a demo page by pressing Photo and Copy at the same for 5 seconds then let it go. If same problem persist call this no for further assistance 1800 421 6699

No black!!


Kodak EasyShare 5000 series
Clean the print head then print a demo sheet.
  1. Verify that inkjet paper is loaded in the paper trays.
  2. On your desktop, start the KODAK All-in-One Home Center, then select the Help [?] icon.
  3. From the Help menu, select Maintenance, then select Print head Cleaning. The On/Off light flashes green during the cleaning procedure.
  4. When the On/Off light glows a steady green, press Photo and Copy simultaneously to print a demo sheet.
If the Demo print is bad- IE: no black, blurry print etc., then you may need to replace the print head:

Photo prints bad color


This is the way it was designed. Kodak uses pigment-based inks for these printers, and the colors simply are not as vibrant as dye-based inks. Kodak tech support told me this directly, and that's the way it goes. You might do better if you experiment with different papers, but if you just want it to print quality color documents like a good old HP, you are out of luck.

By the way, there were many horrifying design decisions made on these 5000 series printers. One of the worst is that if you are out of ink, the scanner doesn't work. Nothing works. You can't even turn it off. All by design according to Kodak... Ridiculous!

Their software is also extremely poor and slow. I tried removing it through add/remove programs on one machine, and it wouldn't remove, it would just go through the installation procedure.

I've kept my 5500, but it sucks. I'd love to throw it away and buy a real printer, but I am too cheap.

Good luck.

Printer not printing


Try this. Push the copy and cancel buttons together for about 3 seconds. Then release. The printer should push a blank piece of paper through. Try to print.
