    1. If an error is displayed on your printer control panel or the status monitor on your computer, press Cancel to clear the error.
    2. Go to KODAK All-in-One Printer Downloads and Drivers, select your printer from the All-in-One Printers pull-down list, and download and install the latest firmware version for your printer. Follow the on-screen instructions.
    3. After you upgrade the firmware, press Home on the printer control panel.
    4. Select Maintenance, then press OK.
    5. Select Install Ink Cartridges, then press OK.
    6. Follow the instructions on the control panel LCD.
    7. Go to the next step.
  2. Insert the black ink cartridge into the printhead, then press down firmly until you hear it click into position.
  3. Insert the color ink cartridge into the printhead, then press down firmly until you hear it click into position.
  4. Close the printer access door.
  5. Press  OK  to clear the error.
  6. Make a print.

If this doesn’t correct the problem, there is one last thing you can try.  Slide a piece of card stock or similar paper through the paper path in the direction it would normally feed (with the printer off).  After doing that, turn the printer over and give it a little shake. Return the printer to it’s normal position, turn it on and try again.  Sometimes there is dust or a very small piece of paper blocking a sensor and this problem will correct that situation.  And surprisingly, turning a printer and shaking it solves a large percentage of jammed printer problems!

If none of the above works to resolve the problem, the printer should be serviced or replaced.

    Thank you very much. I’ve owned a Hero 7.1 for more than 4 years. The last ditch of flipping the printer over and sliding the card stock did the trick.

    • That’s great news! Please share the article – most people, even techs either don’t know about this or think it sounds too silly to try. But it really does have a HUGE success rate, even when it seems so silly and or simple. I’ve had so many people ask me “are you serious?”. Then, once they try it.. Maybe 80% of the time, they tel me it worked and they can’t believe it. Hey, ..I’m happy to give you the stupid sounding answer that works almost every time!
