Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5100 All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

Kodak 5100 all-in-one will not print B&W from pc.

It will not print B&W from the PC. It will copy in B&W fine from the scanner. I can also print color text from my PC. Just not black text or black parts of images.

I have replaced both ink cartridges. I have reformatted PC and reinstalled all printer software. Also ran all the normal printer cleaning and maint. Same result.

First Check if you are printing in true black ( not grey) and if you are not the call KODAK and have them send you a replacement printhead. (if still under warranty).

The printer does not respond to print order. I get a message saying camera is connected, it is not.


The Camera Detected message is your PC detecting the scanner on the Printer - What happens when you try and print?

Also, try the following:

Remove the printer USB cable from your PC -> Restart your PC -> Log back onto your Profile -> Click on Start -> Control Panel -> Printers & Faxes -> Delete all printer entries -> Restart your PC -> Log back onto your profile -> Plug the printer USB cable into the back of your PC -> Go into Printers & Faxes -> Right Click on the Kodak 5100 AiO entry -> click "Set as Default" -> Now try to print.

Printing too light


Kodak EasyShare 5100 series
Clean the print head then print a demo sheet.
  1. Verify that inkjet paper is loaded in the paper trays.
  2. On your desktop, start the KODAK All-in-One Home Center, then select the Help [?] icon.
  3. From the Help menu, select Maintenance, then select Print head Cleaning. The On/Off light flashes green during the cleaning procedure.
  4. When the On/Off light glows a steady green, press Photo and Copy simultaneously to print a demo sheet.
If the Demo print is bad- IE: no black, blurry print etc., then you may need to replace the print head:

Will not print in black


This seems to be a common problem on the 5100

Contact Kodak Support who will ask you to re-insert cartridge, Print Clean, Calibrate and run print test (press Photo & Copy together) then tell you that you need a new Print Cradle! Which they will supply FREE of Charge by overnight carrier.

I have a Kodak easyshare all in one printer 5100


You need to clean the printhead of the printer to solve that

issue. Because everytime you print, excessive inks are going

to the printhead that's the reason why it's clogging the

system up. That's because Kodak printers is using

"pigments" as inks that's why Kodak printers are producing

high quality prints unlike other printers - a photo printed from

kodak could actually last for about 100 years. Now back to

your issue, you need to clean the printhead from the printer

but not manually. You could clean it by going to the

software of the printer namely the KODAK HOME

CENTER SOFTWARE. You need to click the "?" mark

icon on the upper right corner of the software window then

under the General Links select Maintenance then choose

Clean Printhead. Do it at least twice and then try making

prints. If that still doesn't work try calling Kodak Technical

Support Representative: 1-800-421-6699

I hope I have been some of help. ^_^

Very poor B&W printing


First thing you can try is running the printhead cleaning. if you double click your status monitor (bottom right hand corner of windows screen) then click the maintenance button on the window. Then click the printhead cleaning button. Try this a few times then attempt another print.

If you dont have the printer connected to a PC there is a combination of 2 buttons on the printer you need to press to do a printhead cleaning. Not sure what they are.

If after you run a few printhead cleanings the black prints still dont print well, the only thing you can do is call kodak customer service they will have you update your firmware and software and reinstall the printhead a few times but in the end you can get them to send you a new printhead. The printheads are not sold in stores.

Good luck
