You may have a faulty printhead. I just purchased a new one and had a time with it. Awful color in picture. Kodak sent me a new printhead and new ink tanks. Now it works great. You may have printhead trouble also, contact Kodak for help.

Hi Ihave a MP-500 that prints off color.


You need a new printhead, QY6-0059-000, around $60.00. They do wear out and also plug when you use generic inks.

Kodak 5300 prints light or not at all color does better


to resolve the problem try to clean the printhead first, to clean the printhead just press on the menu button, select clean printhead, select deep clean.
After you clean the printhead try to re-calibrate the printhead, just go back to the menu the select calibrate printer then select print calibration page. Once you have the calibration sheet, place it on top of the scanner make sure that the blue arrow on the printout is pointing on the yellow arrow located on the top corner of the scanner glass then press on the start button to scan the calibration page. Once the calibration is complete try to make a test print, just go back to the menu then select print demosheet then press ok. If this will not correct the problem you need to call their technical support hotline

Printer will not print black ink


Seems to be a common fault with Kodak EasyShare 5100/5300

Contact Kodak Support and go though the following tests:

Remove and re-seat Printer Cartridge(s) - Done

Clean Printhead - Done

Calibrate Printer - Test Sheet Not Complete!

Run Computer Colour Test - Done

They will then send you a new Print Head.

Calibration not working


When you place the calibration sheet on the scanner glass, make sure you put it with the blue arrow facing the yellow triangle on the scanner. (the page must be, obviously, facing down).

As with the red color issue goes, try replacing the color ink cartridge. If that does not work, contact kodak support to fix the problem (you can go to kodak.com/go/itg for troubleshooting steps)

Printing is way to light


if your prints are coming out with blue green tint, more than likely, the magenta (pink) is missing from your calibration page. Print out a calibration sheet, you should have black, yellow, blue, and magenta. If one of these colors is missing, your printhead is clogged. You need a new one. Call Kodak Tech Support.

Printer will only print in purple/pink,enstalled new colour cartridge configured as required,still no change. help thank you


Print out a calibration sheet, either from the menu, or press photo and cancel at the same time. Your calibration sheet is probably missing a color. You should have black, blue, yellow, and magenta(pink). If you're missing any of these colors, your printhead is clogged. Try doing a printhead cleaning. Print another calibration sheet, if the color is still missing, you need a new printhead. Call Kodak.

Kodak 5300 printer


K...Trust the solution. Try these steps. Open the printer, remove the ink and remove the printhead (See User's guide). Reseat the printhead and the ink cartridges. The printer will come up with an error message that requires calibration. Do the calibration and scan the sheet that prints right after by pushing the start button. In the menu options, clean the printhead. Do one basic and one deep. Print a demo sheet (another menu option) to see if the quality has gotten better. If it has not call Kodak AiO Tech support. You will need a replacement printhead.

Magenta printing as yellow


Well, first off, are the alignment, and nozzle check sheets looking good? If not, then work on that. If so, then we have a problem. Try creating a test sheet in Word. Make red, yellow blue & black text and see if anything else prints wrong. Get back to me!
