    My printer stopped printing black ink and printed lighter than normal color prints one day so I did the Kodak trouble shooter on their web site. They sent me a new print head, but I don't know how to install it.

My Kodak 5300 printer prints very faded. I have changed the cartridges twice but makes no differenc.Have any ideas?

Most of the times, in such an issue, the problem is the printhead of the printer.
Please follow the below mentioned steps:
  • Reseat the ink and the printhead. If you need help inreseating the printhead, go to the link
  • After reseating, it will ask you for a calibnration sheet and will give you the instructions for the same on the printer's lcd.
  • After you are through with the calibration, go to the Clean Printhead option in the Menu of the printer and do a deep clean.
  • Try printing a demo sheet from the printer and check.
  • If the issue persists, you can call Kodak to get a free printhead replacement.

Kodak 5100 AIO won't print after cartridge change

the red blinking light indicates that your printer wont recognize your ink carthridge. you can try to reseat the carthridge and the printhead. to remove the printhead just press on the release tab which is located on the upper left corner of the printhead wall. If this will not correct the issue, you need to call their technical support hotline. maybe the carthridge is faulty or there is a problem on the printhead. their hotline no is 1 800 421 6699
