Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5300 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Just replaced Printhead on my AiO 5300

Like many other posters here, my Kodak 5300 stopped printing after we changed ink cartridges. I did the diagnostic tool and was sent a new printhead (arrived very quickly), which fixed the problem.

My question is, will I have to be doing this every time I run out of ink? Looks like this is a pretty common problem with these printers.

From what i know, kodak already released an imkproved and upgraded version of their printhead so i guess you dont need to worry about that anymore.

Place the printhead right back into the printer and push straight back on the back wall.
