SOURCE: Kodak 5500-printhead problems
I was having problems in trying to remove a faulty printhead. It all started with asking Kodak for instructions for removing it,. The technician wasn't able to remove it. After they sent 2 printhead replacements in less then a year, they included a website which I was to go on to solve the problem. 2 hours later I found a website where someone(thank you whoever you are) suggested that you put your thumb in the middle of the top part of the printhead(after tthe ionk cartridges are removed) push toward the back gently & lift it out with your other hand, It came out quite easily. Why couldn't Kodak print insructions as such & better yet why couldn't they have a photo taken with a digital camera & sent it with their replacement parts or by e-mail. I realy feel Kodak & all other companies should be taken to task on this, They rely too much on websites to cover their inefficiences.

You need to go to the hp download site and download the System Maintenance Utility Software. Its free, but you need it before you can clean the print heads. also, for some reason it works best when hooked to the network, not directly to Computer.
