Printer not printing black ink

I purchased my Kodak Easyshare 5100 about 4 months ago, and for about a month now it has not been printing well at all! The black ink is very very light, with white lines going through it. I have replaced the ink cartridge twice, and I am getting the same results. I have even triedthe maintanence, but know luck.

Contact Kodak with your problem. The problem is in the print head. Kodak will send you a new print head free, then follow the instructions that are inclosed to change the print head. DO NOT TRY TO CHANGE IT WITHOUT READING THE INSTRUCTIONS. You may damage the new head and they will not replace it a second time for free.

MY PRINTER WILL PRINT IN FADED COLOR. I REPLACE BOTH COLOR AND BLACK INK CARTRIDGES. STILL NO PRINT. THE LAST TIME THIS HAPPENED WAS A FEW MONTHS AGO AND I WAS TOLD I NEEDED A NEW PRINT HEAD. THIS WILL BE...


If you are not using the printer that often, the ink may be drying out.. once the ink is dry on the printhead, it could very well be the cause of the problem.

For image quality issues, this is the place to go for troubleshooting them and getting a replacement head if needed.

Kodak 5100 no black printing, light on colors


Had the same issue... No black ink. Called the # from "Solution #1" guest, 18004216699. Had to patiently go through all the basic trouble shooting stuff like calibration, print head clean, demo print, etc. Once I went through that, they issued me a new print head for free, no shipping charges or anything. Just did this today, but they say I should have the print head in 3 days.

For once, service worked like it should!

Kodak 5500 printer won't print red


I also have this same problem. What works to a degree is to take out print head and SOAK IN WARM WATER. This will take out most all the ink residue and debris. Then dry off and reinstlal immediately. This worked for me but a month later, NO BLACK!

Kodak 5100 will not print consistently


I am currently having the same problem with a 17" iMac Intel Core Duo.  The printer worked fine for a few months, now it will only print in black and white and sometimes in color that is extremely faded.  I have tried every troubleshooting tip in the book and still no luck.
