Kodak EasyShare 5300- Won't print

I have a Kodak EasyShare 5300 - KSN F162623. All of a sudden it won't print - it receives the signal, but paper comes out blank. I replaced both the black and color toners but it did not help. Could it be the printhead. If so, how do I get a new part and is it easy to replace?

    same problem. Kodak EasyShkare 5300. Print quality has gradually been

    deteriorating, now won't print at all.

    Replaced both print heads, am using the required kodak paper but

    all I get are blank pages when I try to print out turbo tax forms.

    When I try to print out forms from my bank, I may get main titles

    but the information is blank. I am truly disgusted with this printer,

    I DO NOT want to print PICTURES. All of your literature is focused

    on PICTURES, I want to be able to print documents. Also have

    reinstalled the software and upgrades at least three times. Don't

    tell me about dirty print heads which seems the favorite reply from

    your experts. The fault is in the poor quality of your product, the

    5300 printer, and very overpriced at that. HELP! HELP! Give me a

    refund, or a printer that works.

Kodak EasyShare 5300- Won't print

I fumbled around a similar problem today. After printing photos you have to convert the printer to print to paper. If there is a green LED on the printer your are in PHOTO mode. Reach into the 4x6 printer and pull back the slide and the LED will go out. Now you can print on paper.

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.
