Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5500 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Calibration not working

I have an EasyShare 5500 that will print the calibration sheet, however it will not scan and align, it just keeps saying that calibration page not detected..  What do I do?  It also will not print red, even after deep cleaning the heads. It just prints pink.

    Thanks for responding, obviously I must have something else going on because, I don't have a blue arrow, in fact, that's another color that my ink cartridge is not detecting.  I did deep clean and I did replace the color ink cartridge.  When I print the calibration page, it prints the upper right 1/3 corner of the page and their are no arrows.  Guess I'd better try to contact the technician.  
    Thanks

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)

My calibration page printed on plain white text paper


When you calibrate the 5100 AIO, first, you push in the photo paper drawer until it CLICKS. Next, print an alignment sheet. It will use the photo paper. Pull the drawer out, put the printed sheet in the scanner bed, with the arrow in the right hand corner, closest to you. Press start and it will scan and print a sheet on full sized paper.
If your initial scan doesn't print onto photo paper, you don't have the drawer pushed in the whole way. There is a definite click and the green light will turn on.

My Kodak 5500 all in one won't print in black ink


This is a common problem. Please follow the below mentioned steps:
  • Reseat the ink and the printhead on the printer.
  • On doing this, the printer will ask you to print a calibration sheet for which, it would display the instructions on the printer screen.
  • After printing the calibration sheet, press Menu button and got to the option Clean Printhead and hit ok.
  • Choose deep clean and hit ok.
If the issue persists, you need to get another printhead.
Kodak will not charge you for the printhead.

Prints come out blue.


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.

The calibration sheet has poor color as well black, gray, blue?


First of all, you only need to calibrate the printer once (when you first set it up).
Second, you can calibrate it on regular paper.
Third, if you can print pictures without a problem, then you should not worry about the calibration page at all.

Calibration


Greetings,
Sorry to hear that you are stuck?
If and when you regain the function of the menu button, you should perform a calibration. It should be done every time you install or replace a printhead. However, you can run a calibration if you are seeing changes in the image quality. Calibration aligns the printheads and performs a nozzle health check to enable high-quality prints.
1 Load the main tray or photo tray with photo paper.  You don't have any photo paper, but it is recommended for calibrations. 2 Press Menu. 3 Scroll down until Calibrate Printer is selected. 4 Press OK. A new screen appears with Print Calibration Page selected. 5 Press Start and follow the instructions on the LCD screen to complete the calibration.
If the stuck condition presists, let us know. Best bet is to call us directly at the 800 421 6699 as our team will be able to get you running quickly.
Talk tol you soon,
Ron Baird the friendly Kodak guy

To calibrate the printer right click on the printer icon and open the status monitor once you open it there is 3 symbols on the top right of the box one looks like a hammer and wrench in an x configuration, next to that is an i for i for about and a ? for help. Click on the x which is Maintenance it will bring up a new box which has 2 options calibrate and printhead cleaning when you chose calibrate it will print a calibration sheet which you then need to put into the scanner portion and press the start button, these instructions will also come up on the screen when you go through the process.

NO CALIBRATION SHEET


Hello, you can print a calibration sheet from the front panel of the printer. Hit menu on the panel of the printer and scroll down to calibration printer and hit ok. Then hit ok on print calibration page and it should proceed to print a calibration page. After it is done printing, it will tell you to scan the calibration sheet.
