    Mine also will not print in black and it only prints faded colors with new cartridges. It also just drains the black ink even though it won't print. I cleaned the print head also.

Made the call to Kodak. New print head and two new cartridges on the way. Free of charge. They are very helpful when you call and not a long time to wait for help.

    If you have a Kodak printer you can't fix using their web site. Make the call 1-800-421-6699.. They will help you fix it.

1-800-421-6699.. That is the number for Kodak. They will replace your printhead for you. I've been dealing with this same thing. Along with replacing the printhead they are sending black and color ink. All Free! I'm really excited. The people are very friendly and helpful. They know what they're doing. BTW, the replacements should be here in 3-5 days.

Printer will not print in black. I do not use the Kodak EasyShare 5100 very often, and the black ink will not print, despite fitting a new cartridge.


Try reinstalling the software. If you are using the disc it came with make sure you check web installation. Do not plug in printer until told to do so.

If you have done all the steps to clean the printheas, as listed in the printer's maintenance program, contact Kodak and let their customer support know your problem. You will need your model number (5100 AIO) and serial number (lift the platform where you change the ink. There is a number there. They will send you a new printhead. It takes 30 seconds to replace and there are no tools required.

Will not print in black


This seems to be a common problem on the 5100

Contact Kodak Support who will ask you to re-insert cartridge, Print Clean, Calibrate and run print test (press Photo & Copy together) then tell you that you need a new Print Cradle! Which they will supply FREE of Charge by overnight carrier.

Printer not printing black ink


Contact Kodak with your problem. The problem is in the print head. Kodak will send you a new print head free, then follow the instructions that are inclosed to change the print head. DO NOT TRY TO CHANGE IT WITHOUT READING THE INSTRUCTIONS. You may damage the new head and they will not replace it a second time for free.

Kodak Easy Share 5100 will not print after I changed black cartridge


Press copy and photo at the same time and print a demo sheet. Look at the eyes of the two kids in the picture, if they look like zombies, your printhead is clogged. try cleaning the printhead and print the demo again. If it's the same, you need a new printhead. Call Kodak.
