Printer not printing dark, it comes out gray instead of black?

I have a kodak all in one printer. When I print it comes out a light gray color and not black. I just replaced the black ink and it is still gray.

About a week ago it got a paper jam and we had to pull it our and there was black ink smudged all over it.

What could be the problem?


Info about these things would be helpful.

Update 2:

itstill prints color fine

Update 3:

cleaning cycle?

    your printhead has black ink dried all over it. the light gray comes from the color cartridge. if running a cleaning cycle does not help, you may need to take your printer to a kodak service center to have the printhead cleaned.
