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?

Update:

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.
