Customer Question
I have a Kodak...

I have a Kodak officehero 6,1. I am getting a message that the printhead is jammed. I have tried everything.

Technician's Assistant: What Kodak model do you have?

Officehero 6.1 All-in-one

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your Kodak printer?

This is the third time. I have been able to dislodge printhead previously, but not today. It's probably worn out.

Technician's Assistant: When did you last update the Operating System (OS) on the computer or device you're printing from?

No clue

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Printer Expert to know before I connect you?

Not that I am aware of.

Hello,

My name is David.

Since the printer was just recently working, I recommend a power reset as

that will drain errors from memory and may resolve the issue. Unplug the

printer power cord and unplug all peripherals. Then leave the printer for

about 5 minutes to let all power drain. Then plug the printer power cord

into a wall socket (not a surge protector or power strip) and then plug the

printer back into all peripherals. Then power up the printer and test to see

if the issue is resolved.

Please let me know the result and if you need further assistance.

Thanks,

David.
