Most likely your print head is clogged, there are 2,000 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 reseating the ink cartridges(take them out turn off power, unplug printer, power back on & wait for it to get done making noise) then proceed 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

For 34 Short Paper error, reseat the tray guides and make sure it is set properly. Also, set the correct settings in the computer. For blank pages, always double-check the paper settings and again the settings in the computer. For not printing black, print the Print Quality page and see what color is not printed or not showing. If Print Quality shows black, try printing any document from any application in the computer. Check if you still have the problem. If problem is not resolved, leave a comment so I can get back to this.
Try printing the hardware test page, if it fails to print then it can be issue with the cartridges( may be using refilled cartridges) try cleaning the strip with soft cloth and head of the cartridge with damp cloth.
Try this clean the head of the printer, through the menus on the servicing the printer. If that doesn't work take a compress air can, and becareful of not get the liquid stuff into the printer, by holding it straight blow it into the printer. It could be as simple as paper dust or dust on the head itself.
To isolate the problem you need to do a 'half test'. This involves printing and stopping paper half way through the printer. This can be done by opening the toner door at the appropriate time. The paper should have just entered the fuser (watch out, the fuser is HOT). You should see the paper with the printing on it after removing the toner cartridge. Carefully turn the toner cartridge over and move back the door that covers the drum. DO NOT TOUCH THE DRUM. If there is the corresponding blank spot in the center of the drum, like the paper, the scanner is dirty or blocked. A can of compressed air will help here. If you have access to a different toner cartridge, you may want to try that first.
ok if you are getting peices of rubber on the pabe it could be the fuser rollers.. this unit comes out easy.. looking at the unit there are 2 screws on both ends looking back at you... remove the screws and the unit lifts strait up once its out you can see the rollers much better. it is either comming apart or the teflon could be sliding off. if it looks ok you may need to run the paper thru slower it may not be fusing good 2 ways to do it try the bypass and select heavy 1 or you can set the cassette for heavy under add func common settings paper settings...
The Z715 needs a #50 black ink cartridge and a working color cartridge to print. To check if there ios ink coming out of your black or color cartridge touch the bottom of it to a paper towel and if you see a solid black blob or 3 blobs of Yellow, blue and red for the color then your problem is else where. If U are printing stuff from the internet sometimes the printer will try to use the color cartridge to print this so even though the black is working it comes out blank if the color is dry
Is the paper you are using a bond paper and a little heavy. The line is most likely comming from the fusing ass'y. Are you running it LTR size? Try runing it LTR-R size. It will not put as much fores on the fuser and it will run a little slower. Also try the by-pass. Or try to run some Blank White pages though it to clean the fusing ass'y. You also may need to rebiuld or replace the fusing ass'y.
