Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5500 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Just changed cartridges for the first time and now the lid will not close.
For jandj232301.... Most likely your print head is clogged, there are 2,00 some nozzle's in it. If the printer is not used for a moderate amount of time the ink can dry up and cause a clog in those nozzle's. You can try doing a printhead clean from the main menu, or homecenter->?->maintenance. Then after that do a calibration, print a demo sheet to see if there is any improvment. The printhead clean pushes ink through the nozzles to try to clear clogs. The calibration scans those nozzles to see which are avalible to use, and makes sure that all the avalible nozzles are being used. If this does not fix the problem you most likely need a printhead but you will have to call kodak; as they are not avalible in stores. Also you can try updating your firmware from kodak home center, or www.kodak.com/go/downloads

Did you properly or surely remove the sealer on the cartridge? If you did it, then you should try the following below:
1) Take the cartridge off and put it back, make sure is in the right way.
2) Push the cleaner bar all the way were it belongs.
3) Press the "on" button for 10 seconds.
4) Disconnect the printer and have re-start.
5) Call a friend that knows about electronics.
Also, you could check HP's website. You can troubleshoot your particular problem here:

SOURCE: says copier lid open
The small "sensor" that should "trip" when you close the lid is not engaging. Blow a little compressed-air into that micro-switch, so that it works correctly.
