All printheads in these printers eventually fail. Need a new printhead. Kodak needs to issue recalls on all these printers.

You mean you replaced the ink cartridges, since the printhead can only be replaced from the kodak tech support because it is not for sale.

What you need to do is to call them or go to kodak.com/go/aiosupport to have your real Printhead replaced (this is where the ink cartridges go) because that is causing the issue.

Everything i print has lines in it and the color is horrible..I put new cartridges in and aligned,calibraited it.still having same problems. it is a 5300 kodak all in one..


With the Kodak 5300 the print heads are separate from the ink tanks and when you have printing issues where you have lines or the quality is poor you need to clean the print heads or in worse case scenario you would have to replace the heads.
Here are the steps to clean the heads:

To clean the Printhead from the control panel on the printer:
  1. Press the Menu button to display the Main Menu.
  2. Press the down arrow until Clean Printhead is displayed, then press OK.
    • For a basic clean, make sure Basic Clean is selected, then press OK.
    • For a deep clean, press the down arrow until Deep Clean is selected, then press OK.
To clean the Printhead from the KODAK All-in-One Home Center Software on your computer:
  1. Start the home center software.
  2. If the Help toolbar is not open, click the Help (?) icon in the upper-right corner of the window.
  3. From the Help toolbar, select Maintenance.
  4. Click Printhead Cleaning, and wait for the printer to complete the cleaning.

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 black ink cartridge on my kodak easy share 5300 appears to be faulty. I have changed the cartridge and deep cleaned the print head as wel, any suggestions?

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.

Kodak 5300 not printing colors


Kodak told me to take the printhead off and reseat it several times, which I did. I then deep cleaned it, calibrated it, and replaced the color cartridge. It didn't solve the problem. Kodak will replace the printhead for free, and after I return the defective one, will send me a free color and black cartridge. Very nice service. I've been very happy with the 5300.

Kodak easy share 5300 -


The first thing you should try is running a printhead cleaning using the kodak software or from the local user interface on the printer. from the printer press the [menu] button. press the down arrow untill Clean Printhead is highlighted. press the [OK] button. Select "Deap Clean" and press [OK]. If this does not work you can mannually clean it. You can search online for how to clean inkjet printheads. I use distilled or de-ionized water and a LINT-FREE cloth. Dont use paper towls or anthing that could leave lint behind and clogg the nozzels. when you wipe the printhead make sure you only wipe in the direction of the nozzels, with the grain. Do not use a circular motion. You want to wipe from the front to the back or back to front of the printhead. Not left to right. I hear windex works as well but i have never tried it. Do some research online and use you best judgment. If none of this works you may have to contact kodak and see about getting a new printhead, they dont sell them sepeartly.

Good luck!
