Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5100 All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

Printing in Red Tint

All of my prints whether in color or black and white have a red-purple tint.  I've tried re-installing the firmware, several new ink cartridges, unplugging it to "reset" the printer and nothing has worked.  I finally went through Kodak's online troubleshooting guide and answered their questions and followed their steps.  By the end it was determined I needed a new printhead.  You also have the option of calling kodak but online was much quicker.  Now all I have to do is wait 2-5 days for the new printhead to come in the mail.

    Printer is copying pictures in pink and purple hues inspite of troubleshooting. I did need to have a new printhead sent to me about a year ago and need to do the same again. It is a kodak 5300.

Your machine may have a function to my LEXMARK. At LEXMARK Solution Center I select MAINTENANCE. Here there is a maintenance tool to "clean to fix horizontal stripes". When selected, it cleans and tests the nozzles while printing a test page. It even has a CLEAN AGAIN button.

Your machine should have a similar function. Hope this helps.

Red and blue tint


Often "grayscale" is achieved by mixing some of your colors (CYM) to form composite black and gray - not necessarily just black from your black cartridge. Often there is some yellow used beneath the black -- so if you are getting a red or blue tint, it could mean something as simple as being low on yellow ink.

Epson Stylus SX445W printing pictures with a red tint


Dear Kate,
please run the Epson maintenance software and check your printer cartridge.
i think printer head cleaning is the solution.
please run 1 or 2 cleaning cycles and give a try again.
if problem still there its time to go to technician.

nuwan.

My hp printer casts purple to black and white prints


Tried your settings with no luck. Also tried every canon profile listed to no avail.

These are my settings:
Color management:
Color handling: Photoshop manages colors
Source space: sRGB...2.1
Printer profile: Canon MP620 Series GL2/52G
Rendering: Perpectual

Media Type: Glossy Photo paper
Print quality: standard
Effects: borderless

Printer Preferences:
Color Intensity: manual-set-everything is 0-matching:none


I am using Kodak glossy paper and I am using that setting. I am printing a digital scrapbook page with color. I used black and white pictures in the page trying to get rid of the purple trees, so it shouldn't be printing any color at all in the photos, but the limbs are still purple.

Under color settings in PSE I have checked "optimize for printing".

I am off to the store to pick up another package of photo paper..maybe HP or Epson will be better (I think those are the other 2 choices in the store)

Will check back in after I try the other papers

Canon i860 won't print deep colors


I had similar problem: everything muted and with brownish tint. Tried everything, finally discovered that I installed wrong cartridge: 6PC instead of 6C. The "photo" cartridges are pretty much the same, make sure you have the right ones: 6C, 6M, and 6Y.

Color printing with green tint


Most probably your ink color RED and BLUE has run out. Refill/replace the color ink may help to solve your problem.
