Printer software will have a menu for cleaning the heads when they get dirty or clogged. Try that. You can also , if possible, remove the print head and soak it for a few hours in cleaning solution.

This one pops up a lot when the printhead sensor gets dirty. I would pull the paper out, give the inside a good blast of canned air, pull the cartridges and then reload it like you're setting it up again the first time: paper, ink, test print. If you still get the error code try cleaning it again but on its side or back and check the print head belt and rail, too.

Seeing as the problem is with your computer and NOT your printer it would be helpfull to know what OS you're using.
Go to printers and devices. Remove ALL the printers you don't have and all the Kodak printers you do have.
Load the Kodak install CD and follow the directions.

This is often a problem when using non-Kodak inks as the cheap after-market cartridges use dye instead of pigment inks. Replace the after-market cartridge with the proper Kodak pigment ink cartridge and the problem should go away. If you are using a Kodak cartridge, you may need to run your printer through the cleaning cycle a couple of times. Also, run the printer through the calibration cycle once.

If you have used the cleaning cycle and did not have success, you will most likely have to replace the print heads.

If you do not print weekly with a Kodak printer, the ink can dry inside the heads and they stop printing or start missing lines that cannot be fixed by using the kodak cleaning cycle. . I have had this happen to two of my Kodaks. To prevent this, if you are not using them regularly, print a test sheet weekly and you should have no problem. At this point, your best bet is to order new heads for your printers and then maintain them with weekly test prints.

There is no door, just an opening to allow you to clear a paper jam or to vac out paper dust.
