SOURCE: Kodak 5500 printer won't print red

I also have this same problem. What works to a degree is to take out print head and SOAK IN WARM WATER. This will take out most all the ink residue and debris. Then dry off and reinstlal immediately. This worked for me but a month later, NO BLACK!

If you want, you could try cleaning the printhead. Follow these directions to remove the printhead: http://support.en.kodak.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1153/~/installing%2Freplacing-printhead-in-esp-or-hero-all-in-one-printer. Then try soaking the printhead in rubbing alcohol. After it dries, put it back in and see if it helped.

If that doesn't work, consider buying a new printhead. It looks like they're only $10:

Office hero 6.1 all ink is full have calibrated and cleaned print head and it still will not print. Goes thru the actions but nothing on the paper


If you have not already performed serveral head cleans I would strongly recommend doing more. A problem of this nature almost always comes back to the printhead being blocked, dried or defective. It may be worth replacing one or more of the cartridges just in case you had recieved a defective one (but this is very unlikely).

In all honesty the printheads in this range of printers were a little unreliable. There was a period when we had people reporting Kodak sending replacements with very little resistance to resolve all manner of print quality issues. As such it may be that there is a genuine issue with the printhead itself that cannot be resolved.

The black ink cartridge doesn't print


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.

My Kodak easy share 5300 won't print black. I have clean the head and still have the problem.


Clean the print head then print a demo sheet.

  1. Verify that inkjet paper is loaded in the paper trays.
  2. On your desktop, start the KODAK All-in-One Home Center, then select the Help [?] icon.
  3. From the Help menu, select Maintenance, then select Print head Cleaning. The On/Off light flashes green during the cleaning procedure.
  4. When the On/Off light glows a steady green, press Photo and Copy simultaneously to print a demo sheet.
If the Demo print is bad- IE: no black, blurry print etc., then you may need to replace the print head:

Picture prints have no yellow, purple tint


I've solved this with multiple head cleaning. I cleaned the print heads 7 or 8 times and it's working ok again now.

To clean your print heads do the following:

  1. On your computer, start the KODAK AiO Home Center.
  2. If the Help toolbar is not open, click the Help (?) icon in the upper-right corner of the window.
  3. From the Help toolbar, select Maintenance.
  4. Click Printhead Cleaning, and wait for the printer to complete the cleaning.
hope this helps
