It is the print head. Cleaning the heads does not do any good, either does replacing the ink. What you'll need to do is contact Kodak's customer service line and they can replace it for you free of charge. On this site everyone seems to be saying it is consistently the black that stops, however, based on what Kodak said it is possible that either the black or the color can have this same issue.

When you call in they will ask you for your service number, which is located on the bottom left corner of the machine, when you lift the lid (as if you were going to replace the ink). They didn't ask me when I bought it, how much I used it, etc.

They will set up a case for you - it takes 2-3 business days for the print head to arrive. They will provide you with an invoice number as well. Be sure to document it all just incase the head never comes, or if there are additional issues after you receive it (and/or if it doesn't solve the problem)

Software issue. Try a hard reset of printer or uninstall and reinstall the software of unit. in computer that is affected.
And if you continue to have issues with it contact the Kodak experts directly on their web site.

Go here:


Within the tool, select Print quality, then No black, missing text, or text quality.

After answering all the questions (assuming you haven't abused your printhead) you will be prompted to enter a service number, name, and address to be mailed a replacement printhead.

I just went through this and was told my printhead would arrive in 2 to 5 business days.

problem is likely to be the print head, the ink can dry up inside the print head and block fresh ink from flowing.

you can get print head cleaning solution from ebay, which sometimes works, or else go here to get your replacement print head

Look at the back of the printer, you will find 2 latches at the back of the printer, you need to press those latches to open the rear access door. once the rear access door is open you can take the paper that is stuck inside the printer.
