Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5100 All-In-One Printer
I refill my own cartridges, can you tell me if there is an easy way to reset the cartridge so it does not report it is empty? I am a computer consultant and love the printer but I do so much printing that this is the only way that works well for me. I am retired because of medical problems and I work to keep busy and don't charge most of my customers as they have no money, most are disabled. It gets very expensive but refilling my old HP worked great but I do like all other aspects of the Kodak printer better than the HP line. I hope you can give me an answer, Thanks Bob
Has this problem been solved yet at all?, I've had my Kodak ESP-3 for nearly two years now and have spent countless ammounts of money on replacement cartridges due to the fact the chip registers the cartridge empty after so many uses, This is getting beyond a joke Ive jus installed two new cartridges and made 4 small prints on 4x6 paper and the ink is down to 75% and 60% allready, this is not good value for money, I never had this problem on my previous HP, Epson and Lexmark printers.

The printer will always tell you if the cartridge is empty if it is. The cartridges for the all-in-ones can't be refilled. The reason they can't be refilled is because in the ink tank is foam kind of like in a marker. Refilling it would most likely cause problems with printing. You can order off of www.kodak.com though if you have you don't have time to go to the store.

Diagnostic Tap 41 Test (verifies electrical health of ink
To access the diagnostics menu on the HP Officejet J5700 or J6400 series
printers, select * and # keys simultaneously and enter 124 (or 123). From there
you can access the Reports Menu, 'print-mech tap test and run the diagnostic code=41
test (see video above for reference) - this will tell you the exact health of your ink
cartridges. To run it I think you'll need to access via '124' access code for the HP OJ J64xx printer series.
