Kodak 5300AiO will not print Black.

I've tried all the clean heads,calibrate etc.that the printer said to do
but the printer will still not print black.Yes I even put in a new black toner cartridge.
By looking at some of the other sites this printer has a serious problem here.

Take out the cartridges and clean their sides, which pick up hair.

Clean the cartridge-cleaning mechanism itself on the right, especially the foam pad.

Take out the cartridges and clean the bottom of their carriers.

My Kodak 5500 all in one won't print in black ink


This is a common problem. Please follow the below mentioned steps:
  • Reseat the ink and the printhead on the printer.
  • On doing this, the printer will ask you to print a calibration sheet for which, it would display the instructions on the printer screen.
  • After printing the calibration sheet, press Menu button and got to the option Clean Printhead and hit ok.
  • Choose deep clean and hit ok.
If the issue persists, you need to get another printhead.
Kodak will not charge you for the printhead.

Black ink is not printing


The head is either blocked more than you can clean off, ehich happens and the only solution is a new head or printer, or the print cartridge you fitted is not recognised and is not being switched on by the printer to use. Use a Kodak print cartridge if you have used a compatible version and see if this works.

Printer will not print black ink


Seems to be a common fault with Kodak EasyShare 5100/5300

Contact Kodak Support and go though the following tests:

Remove and re-seat Printer Cartridge(s) - Done

Clean Printhead - Done

Calibrate Printer - Test Sheet Not Complete!

Run Computer Colour Test - Done

They will then send you a new Print Head.

5300 printer


Some troubleshooting steps you could try include:

Open the printer.
Remove the black and color ink cartridges.
Right above where the black ink cartridge was, in the top left hand corner of the printhead, push up towards the ceiling and you should be able to push a button that releases the printhead.
Place the printhead right back into the printer and push straight back on the back wall.
You should hear a loud snap.
Replace the ink cartridges which should snap as well.
Close the printer.
After about a minute or so the printer will ask you to do a calibration.
Insert a paper and press start.
Scan the calibration sheet.
After that, in the menu, do a printhead clean.
Do one basic and one deep.
Print a demo sheet to see if anything has changed.
If the picture looks better, continue to do cleans.
In the event that it does not, the printhead will need to be replaced and since the printer is still under warranty, Kodak specialists will try to overnight you a printhead.
The whole process is short and free.
The number for Kodak AiO Support is 1 800 421 6699.

Hope this helps.

P.S. Please excuse any spelling or gramatical errors.
