SOURCE: change printhead in 5500

To change the printer head on the Kodak 5500 AIO printer, you will need to do the following:

To remove the old printer head,

  1. Power on the printer.
  2. Lift up the lid to expose the printer head.
  3. Once the printer head moves to the middle, where you can get at it, then unplug the power cord to the printer.
  4. Remove the ink cartridges.
  5. With the printer head now empty, run your finder along the underside of the top of the printer head, all the way to the left side of the printer head.
  6. Push up with your finger where there is some give, and the shroud that holds the printer head will release the head.

To install the new head,

  1. Simply put it in place, and push forward with your finger on the sticker that shows a finger pushing on a sticker, and you will hear and feel it click into place.
  2. Reload your ink cartridges, close the lid, plug the printer back in and you're done.

SOURCE: Kodak printer 5500 will not print in black

I had the same problem and wasted money on 2 new cartridges before finding the answer on several blogs. Call Kodak Tech Support. In this case they are very good. Tell them the problem, they walk you through some steps and then give up. They will then send you out a new print head (a cheap and disposable device). I thought about buying another one for the next time things go bad but I can't find a source. They send it in 3-5 days, free. I think Kodak is embarrassed about their bad system (printheads should not go bad so fast!)

Hi,

follow the step by step solution from kodak.

Choose All-in-one printer and then Print quality and follow the further steps. I think it's a problem with your printhead.

Howdo you remove printerhead from Kodak 5500


Here is the manual for reference:

Kodak 5500 Manual

If you go to page 88, these instructions are given...with pictures.

1 Make sure the AiO printer is on.
2 Open the printer access door. The carriage moves to a center position.
3 Wait until the printhead is idle and silent, then pinch the pinch latch on the ink cartridge with your thumb and forefinger and lift it out of the print head. Remove both ink cartridges and place them on a flat surface with the ink pads up.
4 Unlatch the printhead by pressing the button in the upper-left corner of the carriage.

Will not print black at first now nothing


Sounds like the typical printerhead issue. visit http://www.kodak.com/global/en/service/repair/troubleshooting/troubleshooting.jhtml?pq-path=10355
if it is then kodak will send you a new one to replace. very common as kodaks ink is very thick for better photos but in turn clogs the printer head faster.

MY PRINTER IS NOT WORKING RIGHT


if you have removed and reinserted the printhead alot and this still happens there are 2 possible problems i can think of. 1. your printhead is defective - solution call kodak and see about getting a new one. 2. the contact pins on the actuall printer carriage are bent and the correct contact is not being made. - solution unless you can tell if the pins are bent and straiten them you need a new printer. you have to exchange it for a new one. These kodak AiOs are nice printers, dont let the badluck of getting a defective one turn you against them.
