Its likely that your print heads are slightly clogged. Clogged printheads are the main culprit to consider when ink is not printing out onto the paper (either not at all, or streaks). In the Kodak printers, the print heads are in the printer, so the issue is likely not with the cartridges, but with residual ink lying on the print heads that has clogged. This can happen due to non-use for a period of time, or due to mixing different inks through the same printer. Kodak is aware of this problem, so they have a print head cleaning cycle in all the Kodak inkjet printers. To run a print head cleaning cycle on your epson printer, look up the function "print head cleaning" in your manual, or through the menu options on your printer. This is usually an option in maintenance, right along side the print nozzle check function. Some printers also have a deep cleaning function. Cleaning the heads once or twice should resolve minor clog issues, and to keep the ink flowing through your printer you should print a page or two a week.

Smile I thought this was an interesting thread. I found that Kodak has some of the least expensive cartridges around at about $10.00 each new. One really neet thing about some printers is that you can find them such as the Kodak that uses a different tank for each of the three colors and the black. There are after market refill systems not kits, that can give unlimited ink with out running out of ink.

Epson is one of those printers that can use the constant fill system. Only one problem, those Epson printers are expensive. The lesser expensive printers won't allow the use of the constant ink fill systems. It's classified as a Resiviour system. There are large tanks that sit on a shelf above the printer. There is a ribbon tubing connecting the resivours to the printer tanks. All you do is watch the resivour levels and when they go down, you simply pour ink into the resivour tanks instead of removing the printer tanks.

It isn't cheap by any means but it's something to contimplate if do large printing projects. You would have to check with an ink refill company to see if your printer can use the resivour system. Just a thought.
