Here are the things you will be asked to try if you call support. They may fix the problems as well. Taking the printhead out and putting it back in is the big helper.

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.
(If this is a 5100, do it in the home center ->? in the top right ->Maintainence ->Clean Printhead.)
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.

Sometimes it takes more than a couple tries to get the right settings the first time you put in a new ink cart. Try using the calibration setting for the printer under it's properties?

I use a small diameter silicone tube to carefully "prime" stubborn new carts by sucking a drop of ink out of the tiny print holes in the printhead part of the cart. Ink can dry at the head and since these carts work by electrical excitation, there needs to be liquid of each color at the holes. Slap a drop of water with your finger on the holes to start easy hesitant ones. Do not get the contacts wet.

You might want to run a cleaning page through it. This uses up more ink that a typical print job, but it will allow you to clean the heads and force ink through them.

Black and white printing not working


sounds like its a expired ink issue. on alot of the hp photosmart printers the ink has a expirey date on the carts the best solution would be to contact hp and chances are they will send you free carts if your ink has been expired. when a black ink is almost out most of the time it trys to draw ink from the color carts mixing to make the appropriate color.

but you can also try the following.
See the instructions for
calibrating a print cartridge in
the Care and Maintenance
section of the HP Photosmart
Printer Help.

Colors


Did you run a quality test print by pressing ink etc...?

It might be that you have no magenta anymore.

If you can see all the 4 colored blocks on the test sheet, firstly try to copy(!) a picture with pink colors and secondly run a pc print. If there is still no pink and you have it blue or green on the COPY one the scanner needs readjustment (from service personell). If you have trouble with the pc printing, too there might be 
a defective ink cart holder which leaks and mingles the ink (you need a new ink cart holder then)
