Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5100 All-In-One Printer
My printer was bought 12/9/07 from Walmart. It has worked great until about 2 weeks ago. Wouldn't print at all; I bought a 2.0gb usb and now it will print in color but not black. I changed the black cartridge twice and it still won't print in black. Please help. I have ran all the softward maintenance programs, uninstalled and reinstalled but still nothing!!
The printer is an all in one Kodak EasyShare 5100
Just an FYI, not sure if it will work for you but.. I did the firmware update from the Kodak site.
It pretty much gacked on the installation, but.....
the printer started printing correctly and the ink color levels seemed to reset to a higher level again!
The firmware installer (which I think I read in one of the other posts here so I thought I would try it) just sat at Attempting printer connection (for over an hour). I killed it with task manager (or reboot) and my printer started printing normally again, go figure.
I am thinking that whatever was stuck on the printer go reset.
Now they do say not to do anything with the printer while that is running, but after an hour or so, I figured that it never contacted it to start the update.. not sure.. but it appears to work now and also seems to print colors correctly.
I am really thinking that Kodak has a pretty sub-standard code writer department because everything I try to run from them on Vista seems to fail miserably without ever timing out and error results. (yes, I do write code :) )
Well, good luck with it, I do not think I will ever buy another kodak printer again.
