Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5500 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

5300 will print only blanks

I cannot print a demo page or a diagnostic page.I don't even know what they look like. Please send me a sample of each as attachments to an email. My email address is:

tking@jsza.com

I have contacted Kareen C., but the info she sent was not useful. I suspect that my problem is the Printhead. I have replaced both print cartridges and cleand the Printhead twice. Still al blanks. It had been running fine for several montha. Then it started blanking and finally prints only blank sheets. I am not interestrd in printing photos. Just B/W documents.

Tking,

See my post that I just put. I just called Kodak and they said that it is the print head. THe black or the color may stop working for no good reason. I had this issue w/ my 5300. It was fine, then 3 minutes later the black stopped. Cleaning the heads won't work.

Call the Kodak customer service line (found on their contact website) and they will set up a case and send you the print head(s) for free. They'll ask for your service number (which is located on a sticker on the bottom left corner of the machine, where you'd change the ink). They didn't ask the age, how often I use it, where/when I bought it....nothing - just what that number was, and what the problem was.

It takes 2-3 business days to send you the print head though - so ughhh to that, but it is free! Yippee! If you are okay with this - I changed the color of my text to blue (since my black wouldn't print) and I printed temporarily everything in blue (until I ran out of color ink!)

Hope that helps!

Printer Printing blank pages


Does it print at all? Have you tried a demo print? menu->information->print demo

Is it printing additional blank pages are all pages blank?

The first thing to check would be the toner.

Try printing out the supply status page (menu->information->print suppies status).

You could also try diagnostics-> PQ troubleshoot.

KODAK 5300 PRINTER IS PRINTING PICTURES WITH A PURPLE TINT TO THEM


Kodak EasyShare 5000 series

Clean the print head then print a demo sheet.

  1. Verify that inkjet paper is loaded in the paper trays.
  2. On your desktop, start the KODAK All-in-One Home Center, then select the Help [?] icon.
  3. From the Help menu, select Maintenance, then select Print head Cleaning. The On/Off light flashes green during the cleaning procedure.
  4. When the On/Off light glows a steady green, press Photo and Copy simultaneously to print a demo sheet.

If the Demo print is bad- IE: no black, blurry print etc., then you may need to replace the print head:

Kodak Easyshare 5300 printer will not print black


Print a self test diagnostic page to check the status of the black ink and print heads.

To print the self-test diagnostic page

Control panel: Press (Configuration Page button), or press and hold the (Cancel button) for 3 seconds.

For models that support networks: Press (Configuration Page button).

If these are all showing OK then clean the printheads

To clean the printheads
If printed characters are incomplete, or dots or lines are missing from printouts, ink nozzles might be clogged and you might need to clean the printheads.

NOTE: Cleaning uses ink, so clean the printheads only when necessary.

The cleaning process takes up to 3.5 minutes. Some noise might be generated in the process.
Control panel: Press and hold (Power button), press (Cancel button) two times, press (Resume button) one time, and release (Power button).

If this fails then replace the black cartridge and run a clean cycle again and then a self test diagnostic then try printing again.

I have deep cleaned print head several times.


For pavster:

There may be multiple reasons why your prints are blank. To resolve this problem, we have an easy Step-by-Step Solutions and Repair tool.

Within the tool, select Print quality, then Blank prints. .

For nana3511:
Clean the printhead, then print a demo sheet.
  1. Verify that inkjet paper is loaded in the paper trays.
  2. On your desktop, start the KODAK All-in-One Home Center, then select the Help [?] icon.
  3. From the Help menu, select Maintenance, then select Printhead Cleaning. The On/Off light flashes green during the cleaning procedure.
  4. When the On/Off light glows a steady green, press Photo and Copy simultaneously to print a demo sheet.
Is the Demo printout giving the same result?


If so, you may need to replace the printhead. This is a very common problem with this model.
You have to contact Kodak to be sent a new printhead to fix the problem. You click through the support on Kodak and then they automatically send out a new print head. To get the link to this on-line support chat with the live tech support and they can direct you where to go to find this solution.

Cannot print


K...Trust the solution. Try these steps. Open the printer, remove the ink and remove the printhead (See User's guide). Reseat the printhead and the ink cartridges. The printer will come up with an error message that requires calibration. Do the calibration and scan the sheet that prints right after by pushing the start button. In the menu options, clean the printhead. Do one basic and one deep. Print a demo sheet (another menu option) to see if the quality has gotten better. If it has not call Kodak AiO Tech support. You will need a replacement printhead.
