Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5300 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Printer not printing black and colour very faded
Every day print off 6-12 sheets of paper using coloured ink, after you have printed or tried to print take cartridge outside and try to shake it close to the ground to make sure ink is coming out.
Hope this helps

The Kodak printhead is known to dry out. You can call kodak customerservice and complain your printhead is failling explain you have runthe printhead cleaning many times waisting your ink. They should shipyou a new printhead and free inktanks.
or if you dont want to wait on the phone....
Ihave found lysol hand wipes to work wonders on the kodak printhead. Ihave an ESP 5 and I have wiped the printhead with a lysol hand wipemany times and it works like new. Here is a link to the product.
To wipe the printhead follow these instuctions.
removethe printhead from the printer. put the tanks back into the printhead.Be very carefull not to drop the printhead and do not put the printheadon a table with the nozzle plate down (where the ink comes out). takethe hand wipe fold it a couple times. Gently wipe the printhead nozzelplate in the direction of the lines on the nozzle plate do not do acircular motion or wipe against the grain. you may not even have to usea wiping motion. you can just place the wipe on the nozzles and let theprinthead 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.
Iused my printer to do a photo guest book at my sisters wedding itturned out great (i wipped the printhead before i started all thepictures look perfect!)

Check the ink status of the printer's cartridge.
