Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5100 All-In-One Printer
Installing the Printhead. While the lid on the scanner obviously is designed to open, so is the top couple of inches of the printer. Opening the printer access door, as it's called, reveals the printhead carriage. Remove the orange tape.
There are nice little notches on all the packages so you know exactly where to tear them. We can't be the only people in the world who appreciate this little touch.
More importantly, the delicate parts of the printhead are protected by orange plastic. Follow the installation poster to remove each in order carefully. Then place the printhead into its carriage and press it firmly forward until it clicks into place.
Let's repeat that: Press it until it clicks. Engineers take note. Usually, that's exactly how you break stuff. You press it until it clicks. Cracks, breaks. Generally, the installation was simple, but this step reminded us of a lot of other printer installations that require a lot of force to accomplish something. Yes, you should feel as if you're about to break the printhead. But you won't. It will click ... into place.
We found out a minute later why such a firm connection had to be made. When you install the ink cartridges in the printhead you have to press down on them. Were it not for the click that grabs the printhead securely, pressing down on an ink cartridge would dislodge the printhead.
