    b. Select one of the following software programs from the list of currently installed programs, depending on which one appears in your list:
      • Kodak EasyShare software
      • KODAK All-in-One Printer Software
      • Kodak EasyShare 5000 series all-in-one software
    c. Click Change or Remove (WINDOWS XP OS) or Uninstall (WINDOWS VISTA OS).
    d. When the Install Wizard appears, click Next.
    e. Depending on the issue(s) you are experiencing, do the following:
      • If you are experiencing errors with KODAK EASYSHARE Software, such as a tri-code, in addition to errors with KODAK All-in-One Printer Home Center Software, select Remove, click Next, and follow the on-screen instructions for removing the software.
      • If you are not experiencing errors with KODAK EASYSHARE Software, select Modify to uninstall only KODAK All-in-One Printer Home Center Software, then click Next.

    i. Restart the computer.
IMPORTANT:
    • If you selected Modify and only uninstalled the KODAK All-in-One Printer Software and did not uninstall the KODAK EASYSHARE Software, continue to Step 4.
    • If you selected Remove and uninstalled both the KODAK All-in-One Printer Software and KODAK EASYSHARE Software, continue with Step 3.

3. Run the Clear Utility to delete any previously installed KODAK All-in-One Printer Software components:
    1. Got to www.kodak.com/go/clear to download the Clear Utility for KODAK EASYSHARE Software.
    2. Select your operating system from the drop-down list and click the Download button to save the file to your desktop.
      Note: If the status indicator on the Clear Utility stops, check the taskbar on your computer for an active security program. If a security program appears in the taskbar, it may be prohibiting the Clear Utility from running. You must allow the Clear Utility to run on your computer before you can continue.

4. Delete the files and folders that can interfere with the installation.
    For WINDOWS XP OS, delete:
      • Printer folder in C:\Program Files\Kodak

I gota dell windows 7 computer when i try to scan with my aio 5300 easy share a window pups up that reads .. YOU NEED A WIA DRIVER TO RUN THIS DIVICE


Did you install the Kodak software before connecting the printer to the computer? http://support.en.kodak.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/36460/selected/true has the software for Windows.

This error usually means that you installed the generic driver from the OS which only runs printer. Uninstall the current driver, disconnect the data cable (USB) and then restart your computer. Install the software from the Kodak site above. Then connect the data cable when prompted to do so. Try scanning after completing the installation procedure.

If you did install the Kodak software, it may have gotten corrupted. Please follow the above directions and let me know if you have any problems.

I hope this helps.

My printer is not printing with all of the colors and there is banding, brand new ink and printheads changed in the last 6 months.


I'm having a simialr problem, I can get my Kodak EasyShare 5300 printer to print pictures just fine, I can even get it to copy & print from the scanner. In both black and color inks. What I can not get the Kodak EasyShare 5300 Printer to do is to print from Microsoft Office Word, or Works for that matter any text document what so ever. I've never had a problem with the printer ever, not even when I upgraded to Windows 7 it printed just fine up till a few months ago and started acting up. At first I thought it was because I hadn't used it in awhile so I replaced both cartridges so they are brand new. Tried my experiment again and it did the same thing, pictures, and copy and print from the printer works just great...text however from the Word programs....nothing but a blank page.

Running Windows 7 - 64 bit Dell Touchscreen, Dual Core Processor. Before you ask...before this incident the Kodak Printer intergraded just fine and worked without incident. Since it is not the printer portion (unless its the printhead), it has to be a software problem...although, I used the disk that came with the printer to re-install it and not from the web just in case that was the problem. Course would installing the web upgraded software be of any assistance? Anyone have any solutions? Thanks.

Kodak 5300 all in one printer will not scan. Cannot get on line with 5300 a10 home center program, tells me printer is not connected


try to unplug replug the usb cable of the printer.

You may also go to control panel printer and faxes and look for the printer of your 5300 now if you see 2 icons delete them both then exit to printer and faxes. and unplug/replug your USB cable then restart computer.

If this issue not solve try to uninstall the software and download the clearutility kodak.com/go/clear. then after doing this restart computer.

Kodak printer ESP-5 CD version 3.2 is not compatible with Vista. You will need to upgrade to Firmware 4.3 Windows XP/Vista from Kodak Printers. The drivers may be found here:

I cannot scan on my easyshare 5300 It only scans halfway and then freezes. We have Windows Vista. Is that the problem?


NO . It should not be a VISTA problem as it has a VISTA driver available. Have you tried reinstalling the software and driver?

Can't scan with Kodak Easyshare 5300 printer


My Scanner (Barely used, not even through the first set of ink cartridges yet) was working beatifully. Then all of the sudden the same thing happened to mine...blinking lights...Power light flashing Yellow...I contacted Kodak and they had me do the same old thing...Unplug, uninstall, reinstall, restart. Nothing works...They also try and have you redownload firmware (But Hello....You cant if the printer isnt ON!) So I went back to them again to say none of it worked. They said its the print head and they are sending me another one. Ive read a lot of terrible reviews of this printer just because of the crappy print head...You would think they could fix that by now, or have 5 extras in the package when you buy it.
