First of all, you only need to calibrate the printer once (when you first set it up).
Second, you can calibrate it on regular paper.
Third, if you can print pictures without a problem, then you should not worry about the calibration page at all.

Colors are not ligned up even after calibrating. Black and white prints fine. In addition, the transfer sheet has a streak of blue powder on one side which causes streaks on the paper. I know how to...


The blue streak is likely caused by a bad cyan cartridge, not a bad belt. That will clean off after you replace the cartridge. The misalignment problem sometimes requires 3 complete full calibration cycles to eliminate the error.

You should have a color separation guide with small gray scale from Kodak. You put the gray scale and the calibration sheet on the glass and follow the instructions from the fiery display.

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.

Prints come out blue.


You may have a faulty printhead. I just purchased a new one and had a time with it. Awful color in picture. Kodak sent me a new printhead and new ink tanks. Now it works great. You may have printhead trouble also, contact Kodak for help.

Im trying to calibrate my printer but it wont print black what do i do


The calibration sheet is comprised of many different colors - cyan, magenta, yellow, and black. Just because you are missing black ink doesn't mean that you can't do the calibration. As long as there is a blue arrow in the top left hand corner, you can match that up with the yellow arrow on your scanner, press the start button, and the printer will calibrate.

Printer will only print in purple/pink,enstalled new colour cartridge configured as required,still no change. help thank you


Print out a calibration sheet, either from the menu, or press photo and cancel at the same time. Your calibration sheet is probably missing a color. You should have black, blue, yellow, and magenta(pink). If you're missing any of these colors, your printhead is clogged. Try doing a printhead cleaning. Print another calibration sheet, if the color is still missing, you need a new printhead. Call Kodak.

Poor color on home printed photos


hmm..no blue, eh? that means that one of your print head cartidge lines is clogged. Sounds like time for a new cartridge tray, which you can access through www.kodak.com

NO CALIBRATION SHEET


Hello, you can print a calibration sheet from the front panel of the printer. Hit menu on the panel of the printer and scroll down to calibration printer and hit ok. Then hit ok on print calibration page and it should proceed to print a calibration page. After it is done printing, it will tell you to scan the calibration sheet.
