With Windows XP in the lower-right corner of your screen is the Notification Area where there are a bunch of little icons. There should be an icon that looks strikingly similar to your Kodak 5100 AIO printer. Double-clicking this icon will bring up the printer's status window. In the top right-hand corner of this window there are three icons. The first from the left is the maintenance icon that looks like a crossed hammer and wrench. After clicking this icon it should become obvious how to calibrate your new ink cartridges and printer heads.

Why is the colour in my photographs not printing as they are in my laptop I have added new inks and cleaned the printing heads


Anonymous, there's a whole science of "color management" that you've invoked. First, what you're seeing is truly caused by lack of "calibration" in any stage of your workflow.
Your camera takes pictures, and whatever colors it sees are what it sees.
Your monitor shows you colors, but there's no standard calibration involved.
Your printer prints colors, but it too isn't calibrated to any standard.\

Assume for a minute that your monitor is set up to be a little too dark. You edit the pictures, and lighten them up so they look ok on screen. Now, when you print the picture, it's too light.

I've had similar issues, and have ended up purchasing a monitor calibration tool (Color Munki Smile) to calibrate my monitor, software "Profile Prism" to calibrate my printer, and now the prints I get look almost exactly like what I see on screen...
