Dear Mia,

Sorry, I don't have an answer for you. I have the same problem with my Kodak 5500 AiO.

I've tried a new printhead (bought straight from Kodak), new cartridges, downloaded up-

to- date software (from Kodak),cleaned the printhead as per maintenance and even

reinstalled the original C/D that came with the printer and my printer still shoots out blank


If you find out how to fix the problem, please tell me


After changing the ink 10C pack, the printer goes thru the motion as before but does not print.

Unfortunately, the steps you have already taken (1. replace ink cartridges 2. replace print head ) are the only economical fixes for this problem. The print heads on Kodak printers go bad often. These printers are advertised as economical to operate, but they don't tell you about the print head problems.

The "tech support" at Kodak seems to be just another arm of their sales staff,the solution they offered to me was to sell me other models of Kodak printers at a slight discount. Mike

Hi @ gnyteowl1,

Perhaps a better solution is since it is brand new, consult the manufacturer's warranty statement that should have come with the printer as to what to do to make a claim for a warranty refund, repair or replacement.

As least make the manufacturer responsible for either fixing their faulty product or refunding you and then disposing of it.

If enough people did this they might pick up their act regarding their products and quality control.
