Question about Printers & Copiers

Open Question

My aio5500 kodak printer needs a new printhead and I am unable to find a place to purchse one. I have tried the Staples store in my city. They can't seem to to help me with this. I live in Cranbrook B.C., Canada. If you help me in this matter I would be very happy. Please respond to me at ljj35@shaw.ca Thank you. Lyle Jolie

You can resolve problems yourself by using the online troubleshooting guide at www.kodak.com/go/aiotroubleshooting. You can even order a new printhead using this tool. Worked like a charm for me!

Hi Tammy,

Installing the print head is really easy. Actually, it just snaps out and the new one snaps in. The key is where you press on the print head to do this. If you go to the following URL you will see how to accomplish this. Go to:

http://www.kodak.com/global/plugins/acrobat/en/service/manuals/AiOPrinters/5300AiOPrinterUG_EN-US.pdf

This shows you how to change the print head in a 5300 model. It is similar to the others as well.

If this does not work for you. contact the 800 421 6699 number and ask them to walk you through installing the print head. It will only take a couple of minutes.

Best regards,

Ron Baird

Firstoff,

Good on you for trying all of the above, if your printer has a print head problem you can find out easily by going into your printer toolbox.

Double click the HP Digital Imaging Monitor on the taskbar to the left of the clock.

when it opens click Settings=>Printer Settings=>Printer Toolbox

Ink levels will be displayed there, If the Black ink is showing empty the sensor for that cartridge must be dead(three strikes), Call HP and request a warranty replacement, or, take it back to staples as they generally handle 1 year in the store.

If the black in is showing here then the sensor is good, click the Information tab at the top of this window, then click Printhead Health. If the Black/Yellow is yellow or red Call HP and they should issue you a new one under warranty. If it is green this is not the problem.

Continue by closing that window, then Clicking Settings=>Printer Settings=>Printer Settings

Click on the Colour tab then switch the printer to greyscale and try printing again.

If this doesn't clear the head it may simply be caked or have an airlock.

To ensure it isn't caked simply soak the head in rubbing alcohol 2-3mm deep on the head for an hour or so, then replace it and try again.


Unfortunately if none of these work you may be stuck dealing with HP for a warranty exchange, www.hp.com click support then click chat with an online support technician.

or talk to your staples rep about having it replaced through the instore warranty if you have instore coverage.


Hope this helps FixYa,

Chris

How to remove the ink cartilidge


How do I install a new printhead in my all-in-one printer? To replace the printhead in your all-in-one printer:
  1. Make sure the printer is on.
  2. Lift the printer access door and wait for the carriage to move to the access position.

    NOTE: For ESP 3250 and ESP 5250 all-in-one printers:
    • On the printer control panel, press Home.
    • Select Maintenance, then press OK.
    • Select Install Ink Cartridges, then press OK.
      If "Install Ink Cartridges" is not an available selection, upgrade the firmware.

  3. Remove any paper that may be loaded in the printer.
  4. Remove the black and color ink cartridges and set them aside.
  5. Remove the existing printhead:
    • For ESP Series Printers, unlatch the printhead by lifting the latch in the center of the carriage.

    • For 5000 Series Printers, unlatch the printhead by pressing the button in the upper-left corner of the carriage.

  6. Lift the printhead out of the carriage.
  7. Remove the new printhead from its bag.

    CAUTION: Do not touch the copper contacts on the printhead, as this may damage it.

  8. Remove the plastic protective shields.
  9. Place the new printhead into the carriage.

  10. Push firmly against the target label of the printhead until you hear a loud snap.

    seating_printhead.jpg
  11. Insert the color ink cartridge into the printhead and press down until you hear it click into place.
  12. Insert the black ink cartridge into the printhead and press down until you hear it click into place.
  13. Close the printer access door.

    The printer detects the new printhead. Follow the instructions on the LCD to calibrate your printer.
    NOTE: ESP 3 all-in-one printers do not require calibration.
IMPORTANT: Be sure to use KODAK Ink Cartridges. Your KODAK All-in-One Printer is designed to work with KODAK Ink Cartridges. Kodak is not responsible for the compatibility or performance of either non-Kodak brand ink cartridges or refilled ink cartridges. You can purchase KODAK Ink Cartridges from the KODAK Store.

Kodak EXP5 printhead malfunction


YES - you need a new printehad. Very common problemwith KODAK printers. They should send you a new printhead for free - they did me. Their technical support is great (although in India) but they should send you a new one for free.

My printer only prints color..have installed new black cartridge but still only prints color so installed another new black cartridge and still only prints color


Unlike most printers where the print cartridge and printheads are attached and sold together, the ESP 3 has a separate printhead from the cartridges.

Remoe both cartridges. Then look at the place where the cartridges sit. There is a latch you push down in the back. This will release the printhead to allow it to be removed.

Remove the print head

Take a cotton swap and a little alcohol and clean the printhead of all ink. Repeat this until it is totally clean.

Make sure the printhead is dry and clean of all ink and alcohol.

Replace the printhead.

Place cartridges in and test.

If this does not work, then you need a new printhead for this printer.

here is an example of how to remove and replace printheads for thsi unit.
http://faqs.kodak.com/atg/faq/attachments/AUR1780-2.pdf

to gt a new printhead you must contact kodak
http://www.kodak.com/go/contact

probably as expensive or almost as expensive as a new printer.

The seperate printhead from the carts are why kodak can have their ink so cheap. Those other brands cost that extra 15-20$ for the attached new head with each cart.

Kodak 5300 shows "color ink cartridge needs replacing",even with new cartridge,and new printhead..Ink level display shows color cartridge empty,and its brand new..


Try this one
Take out the inks and printhead
Leave the cartridge door open, then unplug the power cord from the back of the printer while the access door is open
Close the cartridge door once the cord is unplugged
Reconnect the powercord, turn on the printer, then your printer will look for your printhead "Printhead missing or not installed correctly..."
Then put everything back. make sure it will snap in to place. Then print a calibration page, then scan it. This is just over writing the error message.
