Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5500 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Color of pictures

I have installed new cartridges 2 different times in the last several months. The first time, all the pictures were predominately green, then blank. Now they are predominately pink. I only printed 1 picture-tired of wasting paper. I have cleaned the printer head, calibrated, don't know what else to do. I have a EasyShare 5300 KSN# F015676. 2 other#'s on the bottom of the printer; KP/N 3J9332 and CN3H93332-73420-726-0029. It seems if I don't use the printer for awhile, I have problems. New cartridges are required every time I turn on the printer after some weeks of not using it. I had received a new cartridge from Kodak a year ago when I was experiencing problems with a message on the printer re replace ink cartridge. I replaced it several times, but with no success until Kodak I installed the one Kodak sent me.

Image quality occuring after long period of inactivity of the printer oftenis caused by inks drying up or clogging either the nozzle or the channels of your printhead. to prevent this from happeniong, i suggest you do the maintenance first: deep clean and calibrate the printhead before you start using it if you havent used it for quite a while. you might be experiencing a printhead problem if the printer is printing predominantly in one color. you should try to visit thsi helpful website. the link ive provided below:

Printer will not print. New black ink cartridge. Color ink is almost gone. Help.


Printers that execute high quality images cannot (actually will not) allow printing when the other printer cartridges are almost gone or gone. This is a built in defense against the printer heads drying out and much servicing and expense.

You simply do not own a printer of any kind and allow the color cartridges or black cratridges to run out (or even get close) without having th replacement cartridge at hand for immediate installation.

This is how the printer manufacturer protects itself from costly warranty repairs and lawsuits.

Go immediately and buy the color ink cartridge and install it.

Black is the presence of all colors
White is the absence of all color

Your printer must draw in tiny increments from the color certridges to keep the heads functioning when you predominantly use black printed documents.

Science strikes again.

For God's sake, please do NOT leave me 2 thumbs up and trash my rating incrememntally because you aren't happy about this.

Regards,

TheSelkie

Failure of Printer to Print Color


Try using a new HP ink cartridge. I had the same problem with a printer I purchased off of CraigsList even though the ink level was good. I installed a new color HP ink cartridge and it printed without a problem.

Error Code 1102 on Lexmark P6350 Printer


Hi, it seems that it's a cartridge problem. That's the most probable reason why you're getting that error code. Try this out.
1. Remove cartridges.
2. Unplug printer from power outlet.
3. Then, plug printer back in power outlet after 10-15 seconds.
4. Reinsert cartridges.
If error still appears, redo steps 1, 2 and 3. Then, insert black cartridge first. If error appears, replace black cartridge. If not, insert color cartridge, if error appears, replace color cartridge. Hope this helps.

Poor photo printing quality with new color cartridge


Shaking these cartridges does nothing except give you a little exercise. If this is a brand new HP cartridge you are having problems with I would return it to the store you purchased it from. HP brand cartridges should not give you these problems right out of the box. The print defects you are seeing are due to a dried up or clogged print head. If you like you can try hydrating the print head on a water soaked paper towel until the ink starts flowing, but there's a risk you will cross contaminate the colors.

G600 printer dock used about 6 months ago. Only


Yes, maybe the ink dry out. Try a deep cleaning several times, from the printer options.
If you don't use the printer, you should weekly print a test page to avoid this problem.

I had the same problem with my X8300 printer. As the printer was less than a year old Lexmark sent me a new printer. I will keep this printer until it to goes wrong and then buy another brand. Lexmark - cheap and nasty, I am afraid.

MFC 210c Unable to Print Use Troubleshouting and routine maintenance chapter in Users Manual


My color has not worked well in the past few months. Now I get the message Unable to Print, Use Troubleshooting and rountine maintenance chapter in user's manual. I've tried everything it told me. I've removed all ink cartridges and left them upright (they are ALL brand new) and cleaned all the ink ports. I've cleaned the machine several times. It's told me there's no ink cartrige, I've replaced them, turned the machine off and on, unlplugged, etc. Then go to print and I get the same message again and it won't print. The machine is almost 2 years old and has worked fine until about 6 months ago when the magenta stopped working all together. Now this. Any help? Thanks.

Lexmark X1100 printer will not print black


I came up with a work around for printing black.

I changed the black cartridge with the color cartridge.
Then when I have a letter to print, I change change (or write) the letter text to yellow, red or blue.
Then I can print out a letter.

By printing the text as yellow, red or blue the cartridge will try to print with only 1 color, but will print out black.

If you do not use one of these primary printing colors the out put will be unusable.

I can not of course print out pictures.
