I have recently purchased a Kodak 5300aio printer, and I'm starting to regret it! I've had plenty of problems to deal with, most of which I have been able to solve. However, for the life of me I can't figure out how to print a normal 4x6 photo with the picture going all the way to the edges. I have played with the settings and have managed to print a photo onto the 4x6 paper that came with the printer, but I can't get rid of the 1cm or so border around the edges. I have a mac if that makes any difference. Please help!
I have the same problem with my Kodak ES 5100 AIO. I've wasted so much photo paper. No matter what I do, I still get the borders. I know there has to be a solution to this. Any help will be appreciated.
Re: Kodak 5300aio printing borderless photos problem
When you go to print and you have the photo in the tray and you select print at home on the top there is a button for printer selections, select that and then click the box that says borderless that will fix the problem.

You're asking why you can't print on 100% page size right?
Well, firstly i'd say that Borderless Printing is just for printing photos, and not 100% of printers support this, check in your printer driver if you have "Borderless Print"
Some printers detect the type of paper you are using, and print accordingly. Do you have photo cartridges installed? If not, that will trigger an error message. Try putting a smaller amount of sheets in the paper feed- that can sometimes trigger an error message, I've read in reviews. Double check the printer to make sure there, indeed, isn't a paper jam. The type of paper one uses with certain printers can be an issue, so google your printer make and model number and then type something like suggested paper type, or things similar, and you will get some sites that discuss problems with different printers and paper types, and also suggestions of which paper will work well with which printer.
I couldn't find any specific information since I didn't have a make and model number, but hope this general information helps.
Good luck, and thanks for using FixYa.
Preserve your memories forever with borderless printed photographs--while saving money and time by printing from the comfort of your own home. Some printers do not have the option of printing borderless prints, so make sure your printer supports borderless printing before beginning this project.
Download your digital photo to your computer from a digital camera, email or the Internet. Save the photo to your hard drive to a folder that you can find later such as "Pictures."
Step 2Open your digital photo in a photo-viewing software. Click "Print" from your menu. Go to your printer properties to change your printer's "Page Setup." Access "Properties" through the "Preferences" or "Options" link in your "Print" dialog box. Many software programs have a default margin or border for photos; to print borderless photos, you'll have to remove the default margin.
