Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5100 All-In-One Printer
The Kodak printhead is known to dry out. You can call kodak customer
service and complain your printhead is failling explain you have run
the printhead cleaning many times waisting your ink. They should ship
you a new printhead and free inktanks.
or if you dont want to wait on the phone....
I have found lysol hand wipes to work wonders on the kodak printhead. I have an ESP 5 and I have wiped the printhead with a lysol hand wipe many times and it works like new. Here is a link to the product.
To wipe the printhead follow these instuctions.
remove the printhead from the printer. put the tanks back into the printhead. Be very carefull not to drop the printhead and do not put the printhead on a table with the nozzle plate down (where the ink comes out). take the hand wipe fold it a couple times. Gently wipe the printhead nozzel plate in the direction of the lines on the nozzle plate do not do a circular motion or wipe against the grain. you may not even have to use a wiping motion. you can just place the wipe on the nozzles and let the printhead soak. this will clear up dried up ink and unclog the nozzles.
put the printhead back into the printer run one printhead clean once to purge the ink and try to print.
I hope this helps.
I used my printer to do a photo guest book at my sisters wedding it turned out great (i wipped the printhead before i started all the pictures look perfect!)
