Try to clean your printer:

the printer have its built in program,try to see its utility mode and click clean printer heads
do it 3times;

if the problem is still there...try to clean heads manually
(but 1rst be carefull to damage the heads and the printer must be unplug while you're cleaning it)
get some cottonbuds and dip it to hot water{hot water can melt some molded residue in ink}
and slightly and carefully clean the printer head.

Printer not printing black ink

Contact Kodak with your problem. The problem is in the print head. Kodak will send you a new print head free, then follow the instructions that are inclosed to change the print head. DO NOT TRY TO CHANGE IT WITHOUT READING THE INSTRUCTIONS. You may damage the new head and they will not replace it a second time for free.

I have a kodak easyshare5300 printer. The printer will not print in black ink and some times also in color.

Dear Kbrownsr,

Please check the ink/toner levels of the cartridges installed in your printer.

Steps to solve this problem.

1.) Check the ink levels by using the printer software provided with the printer.
2.) if the ink levels are low, the cartridges has to be replaced/refilled with new ones.
3.) if the ink levels are high or medium, try to do a calibration for the printer using printer tools provided by the printer vendor/ software.
4.) please do a cleaning cartridge and align cartridge options in the printer tools followed by a second calibration.
5.) if the ink levels are showing medium/high and still if the problem occurs, remove the cartridges from the printer and shake them well left to right and top to bottom. it may work fine.

if you did all these steps , and still find that problem is not solved, you may have to contact the concerned service technician for advanced help

All the best from FixYa
