Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5300 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

I've had my Kodak 5300 All-In-One InkJet Printer for nearly a yr

Recently when I hook it to my laptop it says that the USB devise is not recognized and the printer will not print. I have had to reinstall the entire driver at least 2 times in the past month. Is there something causing this that I can set to prevent from happening in the future?

First when you put the usb cable into the laptop both units must be off. After you power them up and load the software, make sure that this print is marked as you default printer, In order to do this after loading the software 1. go to start menu 2.control panel 3. then find the printers, right click on the printer icon then click on set as default printer. with that hopefully you should be ready to go.

Reinstall your windows or 'Recover' or 'Restore' to an earlier date, perhaps to the original 'new' date.

Let the operating system find the drivers for your printer again, or install the right drivers for your operating system and printer combination, off of the website for Kodak.

Good luck.

Faint printing

Try unplugging and repluging the printer to the computer.

Make sure the printer settings are correct in the printers properties box in windows (or other system)

Try another USB port and finally uninstall and reinstall the printer ,if it doesn't solve it then it will have to go to a Kodak service center.

Won't come up on printer list

make sure that your printer is being recognized by your computer. to ensure that go to device manager
click on start and then run(XP) for vista click on start>programs>accessories>run then type devmgmt.msc
the device manager will come up
look for other devices you might have unknown device or eastman kodak company if not then go to universal serial bus controllers. for troubleshooting sake, unplug all devices except from your mouse and keyboard look for usb composite device or usb printing support. if you have a wireless mouse or keyboard u might see 2 usb composite device. uninstall the composite device, unplug the printer and plug it back in. then let the computer recognize it. let me know what happened! good luck!

Photo paper

1. Never put XtraLife paper from a printer dock in any inkjet printer. This paper is not made for inkjets. The ink will simply spill all over the place.
2. You can use any paper you wish that is inkjet paper but you must set the appropriate settings through the print manager if the paper is anything but Kodak inkjet photo paper. The 5100, 5300, and 5500 all recognize the backprint on the Kodak paper and automatically optimize the settings. Other brands of paper are not optimized in this fashion and therefore must be done manually through the print manager or software.
