Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5100 All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

MS Word starts up automatically when printer is powered on

When I power up my Kodak AIO 5100, MS word automatically starts up and displays on my screen. I think I selected this program when I installed the printer as the startup progam. I would like to stop it from starting, but can't figure out how. I have reinstalled the AIO software, but it doesn't prompt for a start up program like it did on the initial installation. Any idea on how to fix this?

Home Center will not open...Can't scan

I needed to reload my AiO Home Center software and no one seemed to have the correct procedure. Maybe if you remove & reinstall yours it will resolve your problem. This procedure worked for me on my XP-machine:
1. got to Control Panel/Printers&Faxes and delete the printer
2. go to your Hardware/Device Manager/Universal Serial Bus Controllers, right-click on USB Composite Device and select Uninstall
3. go to Control Panel/Add/Remove Software and remove the EasyShare software
4. disconnect the cables from the Printer
5. download from the program "install_aio.exe"; run the program
(I selected only AiO+EasyShare+Software Updater to load)
6. followed the prompts after the sw installed to reconnect the Printer cables
7. rebooted
