Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5100 All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

Installed with enclosed disc

I have installed the software to my laptop and the message says finished. However there was no information given as to when to attach the cable from the printer to the computer. Therefore, I can't print. I attached the cable anyway after installation was completed but I still can't print. A test page printed ok. But any documents from word will not print. Is there a specific port I need to connect to on the laptop? Do I need to "add hardware? I am not very computer literate.

Looking at the setup guide, it does indeed tell you to not connect the usb cable until prompted by the software. It is Step 7.

Here a link to the setup guide:

Kodak 5100 AIO Setup

Kodak Support has step-by-step instructions for uninstalling and reinstalling the software. Just make sure you remove the USB cable from the computer and reboot before you reinstall.

Here is the support page to begin on:

Kodak Support 5100 Reinstall

Comment back to let me know how it went.

    Select "Cannot set up my printer" from the first page.

    When it asks if you have connected the printer, answer "Yes".

My new HP will not allow me to install my Canon EOS step up photography disc. Anyone have any solutions?

You have given no information concerning the software, nor any error messages you have received, which makes this rather a shot in the dark, but it is possible that the OS is incompatible with the software which you are attempting unsuccessfully to install.

Factory settings for toshiba satellite laptop

Back up all your data to external media before you begin the process.

If you make a mistake during the process, your laptop may not be able to turn on or load the operating system, so copy valuable information to media where you can retrieve it, even if your laptop malfunctions.

Turn on your system and wait for it to finish loading Windows and start-up programs. You can tell when the operating system has loaded, and start-up programs have been initiated, by the HDD (hard disk drive) light.

It should have came with discs. Put one in and reboot the laptop

Insert the system disk when the hard disk light stops blinking, signaling that the processor has finished accessing the hard disk, and that the system is idle.
Shut down your laptop after you insert the disc.

You do not have to wait for the computer to access data from the disc.

Turn on the laptop again. Keep pressing the "C" key continuously as the system boots. This will enable the laptop to boot from the disk.

Once the disk is accessed, the laptop will show

the message "Loading Files;" begin the factory reset process by always selecting the default option that pops up.

You can also use the "F12" key to boot from the disk.

Highlight the CD/DVD option and press "Enter" to begin the restore process.

Follow the on-screen instructions until the process finishes

Restoring a Toshiba laptop back to factory settings may take 30 to 45 minutes.

Unless you terminate a process by pressing "Cancel," your laptop will be rolled back to factory defaults, when the operating system installs completely.

hope this helps

I am having a problem installing the audiobox software to my Acer laptop. Installation process won't finish.

Try downloading the software and installing it instead of using a disc or flash drive. If you did download it try re downloading it. The file is probably just corrupt.

You will need a software for video communication. I recommend installing Skype on both computers. If cameras are working properly, you should be able to communicate with your granddaughter.

You can download Skype here.
