Remove the ink cartridge.....using a cotton bud wipe the excess ink off the cartridge nozzels...while at it try to clean the service station area (area where the print cartridge returns to after printing) for ink build ups do a through cleaning ....should work for you

Please dont forget to vote if this worked for you....or keep posting if there was no difference

Cheers!

My kodak 5300 black ink keep saying replace black ink cartridge and i have


Black printer ink in kodak Printer may fail to be recognized by the printer. Most times an error message will be sent indicating that something is wrong with the black print cartridge. Sometimes the printer may accept to print with the black ink, but the printouts may have horizontal lines and very illegible letters. In such a case a manual cleaning of the print head should be carried out. In doing the manual cleaning, one should spray Windex heavily on paper towel and wipe off the surface of the print head.

My kodak 5300 is printing poorly. one line will be normal and the next line will be real light...anything i can do..i have new ink and have tried all that i can think of... thanks


Here is a page for your software drivers and a firmware upgrade.
HOWEVER...This looks like the print head may be clogged. Try a deep clean cycle in the printer menu.
If any ink has been allowed to run out, or the printer has been idle for more than a 6 months, the print head is probably no good. Contact Kodak regarding a new print head.

Canon MP980 prints horizontal pink lines across


try to change the color ink. horizontal banding (the pink or other color lines appearing means horizontal banding) when there is a problem on one of the heating element of the printer head. since almost all canon printers have head built in the inks, replacing the faulty ink will solve the problem. if not then the controller of printhead on the carriage and mainboard needs to be checked.

Follow the steps in this Kodak link, re seat the print and then test your printer. If it does the same thing, I would say you have a faulty printer. Return it for a different one.:
