Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5100 All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

Only 4x6 tray prints clearly

I HAVE CALIBRATED AS INSTRUCTED AND CHANGED CARTRIDGES SEVERAL TIMES. I HAVE PRINTED HUNDREDS OF PHOTOS OF VARIOUS SIZES AND ONLY THE 4X6 PHOTO TRAY CONSISTANTLY PRINTS PHOTOS NORMALLY. MOST PHOTOS PRINTED FROM THE BOTTOM TRAY (8X10 OR 5X7) COME OUT WITH LINES THROGH THE PICTURE, "NEGATIVE LOOKING", DISTORTED QUALITY, OR JUST NOT AT ALL. ONCE IN ABOUT 10 PHOTOS, AFTER WASTING INK AND PAPER ONE MAY COME OUT PERFECTLY, BUT IT IS A RARITY. I HOPE THERE IS A SIMPLE SOLUTION. THANKS

For this concern try pressing "copy+cancel" for media calibration then try again, make sure you have an A4 paper loaded. If this doesnt help you out try using the Kodak website www.kodak.com/go/itg and use "image quality" for class.

I want to print photos from my laptop onto four by six photo paper, and i loaded the photo tray with the paper, and changed the tray preference to photo tray, but it's still telling me that there's no...


You also need to change the paper type in printing preferences.You will find 4x6 and 4x6 with tab in th pull down menu where it says plain paper. Be sure to position the paper as far as it will go into the printer and close the paper controls to hold it there. Also fan it well before you put it in.

How to load 4X6 photo paper


hi

  • Turn on the Epson 875DC and the attached computer. Make sure the cable between the two devices is securely in place.
  • Step 2 Remove any paper that is in the printer's feeder tray. Place the 4x6 photo paper printable side up in the tray, with the support sheet at the bottom of the stack of photo paper. Adjust the paper guides so they are pressed against the margins of the paper.
  • Step 3 Open the photos to be printed in your computer software program of choice. When you are ready to print the photos, click on the "File" link at the top of the window, then choose "Print." Click on "Properties" and select "4x6" for the paper size and "Photo Paper" under the paper type. Click "OK" to close the "Properties" window, then click "OK" again to print the photos.

    Picture prints are not clear any more


    You may need to replace the printheads. You can try to clean them with alcohol first.

    I can print 4x6 photos but not documents from my computer


    Maybe your phototray is still engaged. If the green light by the photo tray is on - then it is engaged and you cannot print documents. Lift up the clear lid of the little photo tray, pull it back towards you until it clicks in place. The light will go off. Close the tray lid.
    You should be able to print documents now. Make sure the document tray below the photo tray has paper in it.
    If all else fails, try Kodak's Help on-line at this site www.kodak.com/go/5100aiosupport
    They have an on-line survey tool to help you with your problem. Good luck.
