on the Kodak ESP 5200 series what does a 3501 error mean? can it be fixed by a user? will new cartridges fix the problem?


Hi!

The 3501 error code means "acces door open"

Please be sure that the printer's acces door is well closed.

If this doesn't fix the problem, please do the following:
1. Turn the printer off by pressing the on/off button
2. Unplug the power cord
3. wait for 1 minute
4. plug the power cord back in
5. turn the printer on


Hope it helped.

Regards,

Bogdan

Bypassing printer warning that stops my printer


this one is one of my favourite hate printers... but, no you cannot disabel this function easy, you can "fool" this printer by following that procedure:

1. switch off your printer, wait few sec, switch it on
2. on your computer go to "start"
3. select "control panel"
4. select "printer and faxes"
5. right click on your "kodak easyshare 5300"
6. select "properties"
7. click on tab "services"
8. select "service this device"
9. click on tab "estimated ink level" - it shows estimated ink level after restart

you can use refill (very easy to do by yourself and about 1/3 cost of original replacements). and yes, you are right, cartridges do tend to dry out. i would suggest printing at least one page per week to prevent dry out of the cartridge.

as this particular printer will not work without both cartridges present. i would suggest to insert one empty cartrdge in colour slot and keep it there. on full cartridge use any sticky tape to prevent nozzle from drying, cover breather hole on the top of cartridge as well. when you need to print, remove tape from breathing hole first and then from the nozzle. this way you will prevent or at least slow down your cartridge evaporation ratio.

I have an HP Photosmart Premium Printer Cd055a and it is connected to my wireless network. However, everytime I send something to the printer it says that the printer is offline. The wireless radio on the printer is working and my computers are hooked up to the same wireless network but the printer still says it's offline.


Check the IP addresses of your computer and Wireless Printer. It should be in same range. For Example if your PC is configured with static IP 192.168.1.1 then your printer IP address should be 192.168.1.x (First 3 octact must be same).

If IP addresses are in same range then try to PING Printer IP from Computer command promt in this way
ping 192.168.1.x (where x is Printer IP address) if reply is comming. then Goto start menu , Printer and faxes and double click priter and remove check mark "Printer is Offilne" Printer Menu.
