Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5300 All-In-One InkJet Printer

My color pictures are light and not colorful.

My printhead has been replaced three times. The same problem happens - the color is lifeless. I have done a full cleaning both basic and deep and then the color comes up yellow. It is awful.



i don't know what to do.

Maybe you are not using Kodak cartridges, however I know someone who has had the printhead replaced 6 times untill the problem was solved with a new printhead, I would phone Kodak and ask them to replace the whole printer in case it has a manufacturing fault, ! A brilliant printer when working but too many problems arise in use.

In my pixma ip2772,when I print photo then black colors are printing properly but when I print any types of documents then my black color is not working.It's not showing dark.What can I do?


This printer has a separate cartridge for black and colour. When you print pictures, the printer uses all three colours mixed together to make black and does not use the black cartridge. Your black cartridge may be empty or the printhead may just be dried out. Try a head-clean from the maintenance menu and then print a nozzle test. If still no result then try replacing the black cartridge with a new one which has a new printhead as part of the cartridge.

Canon Pixma ip3000 will not print in color. We recently replaced all three color cartidges and when I went to do a nozzle check, it only printed the black part of the test page. Several times. I went...


I find this an unusual problem but lets look at the logic.
It worked ok before your replaced the colour cartridges.
Your replaced only the colours and now it does not.
Did you replace the cartridges with like for like?
Are they compatables? Did you run the cleaning cycle?
Run the cleaning cycle at least 3 times.
If still no good buy 3 genuine canon cartridges and see what happens.
If still no joy then must assume the printhead is the problem.
A bit of a coincidence?

Xerox Phaser 8560, produces cyan colored streaks whenever this ink is used. No other colors produce streaks.


You are probably using "Media Sciences" ink sticks (Non-Xerox).

This means the printheads jets are clogged, and the printhead needs replacing.

Media Sciences released a defective lot of cyan ink sticks.

They are currently replacing printheads (at their cost) if you call them.

Printerhead need replacing


Printheads are very sensitive and HP sets a "Time" limit of about two years for # 11 printheads regardless of how much you print. ( This is bunk from HP of course!.) But the prinheads do not expire!! They just show their health and that the printhead has exceeded the warraty period ( regardless of how much you print) .

Remove the printheads from their socket and fill a 8- 12" dish with 1/4" high of warm water. Set the printheads in the water in the same position they are set in the printer (vertical) You may need to place a wooden spoon of a block behind the printheads to keep the heads in position, as they will tilt backwards.
Leave the printheads to soak for about 15minutes.
Remove the printheads and slightly press them on a folded kitchen paper towel .It should show two lines of the same color of the printhead (cyan, yellow, etc) If the two lines are not of the same length (about 1/2" long) then repeat the soaking for that color. Be sure to dry the printheads properly

Install the printheads in the printer socket vertically so the contacts are properly set.. If not you may get a message to "Install (color) printhead". reset it again and run at least 15 pages with color information. It should print ok!!
If any print heads is damaged then the only option is to replace it with a new one.
It may be that the ink line from the cartridge to the printhead is clogged and ink is not flowing. This may require to run a large print job of about 50 or so pages to force ink into the clean printheads.

The terminal strip behind the printhead that makes contact with the pins in the printer are very delicate and if removed two to three times may not make a good contact and render the printhead unuseable.

Good Luck!!

Not printing after color cartridge ran out - new black cartridge installed.


Yes, this printer has fixed printheads and must have ink in each color to prevent damage to the printheads. Even when printing black only each color is spit in the servicing area to keep the printhead unclogged.

Canon ip4200 colour magenta


the colors transfer to the printhead by gravity. the felt on the inktank must make intimate contact with the stainless steel filter in the printhead. I have a pixma ip 6000D that I had to replace the printhead inside of two years three times. the bubblejet circuitry in the printhead got burned out. New heads cost from $55 to over a hundred.
