    About 3 weeks ago, this started on my Kodak EasyShare 5500. I found a website that said I should download new firmware for the site. I tried this but it did not fix the problem.

Your glossy paper is too smooth for the rubber rollers to grab it.
You need to wet the rubber rollers. Ever licked your finger in order to turn a page in a book? Same concept solution here.

Remove the paper tray. Take a look inside the space created where the tray was, and locate the rubber rollers. Lick your fingers, and use them to moisten the rubber rollers.

Reset printer and print again. Or try "un-smooth" the paper where the rollers grab it.

Can't print on photo paper from iphoto


When running a piece of photo paper through the printer you must first remove the stack of regular paper from the tray and run only one photo paper at a time. Thank you, Dana

Printer will not print properly, say photo tray not engaged.


take out the photo tray if you can and put it back into its place /
turn off the printer and turn it back on . if it works fine if it does not ,the sensor is bad .
it gives you this message only if the paper try is not inserted properly or it is a false error message .

Keep getting message phot tray not engaged


This should not be a problem at all, that message only means that (as it says) the photo tray is not engaged, and so you are going to print on the main tray. This is meant as a warning, not as an error message, and it shouldn't be getting in your way of printing.

Its saying the paper tray is empty even though there is paper


the problem is with the paper sesor in the paper tray. It must
be under the tray lift mechanism.
This is located in the right front part of the paper tray.

My kodak easyshare5300 is printing black picture


Hi-

If your product is still within the warranty period from KOdak then you can call them up for some step by step troubleshooting to help you with your problem and as well they can replace the printer if defective.

Try this first

Calibrate your printer, then print a demo sheet.
  1. If paper is in the photo paper tray, remove it.
  2. Load photo paper into the photo tray.
    1. Fan the paper to keep the sheets from sticking together. IMPORTANT: Do not overload the photo tray.
    2. Load a maximum of 20 sheets into the photo tray, with the Kodak logo facing up.
    3. Engage the photo tray by pushing it in until it stops. p289_0006aa.jpg
  3. Calibrate your printer.
    1. Press Menu.
    2. Select Calibrate Printer, then press Start.
    3. Wait for your printer to print the calibration sheet.
    4. Place the calibration sheet face down on the scanner glass.
      • For the 5300 AiO printer, place the sheet on the front right corner of the scanner glass.
      • For the 5500 AiO printer, place the sheet on the left rear corner of the scanner glass.
    5. Press Start.
    6. Wait until "Calibration complete. Remove calibration page from scanner glass. Press OK to continue." appears on the LCD display.
    7. Remove the calibration sheet from the scanner glass, then press OK.
  4. Print a demo sheet.
    1. Disengage the photo tray by sliding it towards you until it stops. When the photo tray is disengaged, the main tray is active.
    2. Select Print Demo Page, then press Start.
    3. Wait for the demo sheet to print.

Then call them if issue Persist at these numbers:

In the U.S. and Canada: 1-800-421-6699
In Australia and New Zealand: 1800 793 895

Thanks for using Fixya!

Kodak 5300 wont print on glossy side of photo paper


I just sussed this issue out. On the front of the printer tray there is another pull out tray, this opens up and must activate the photo printing for A4 because it stops the paper falling on the floor once printed (cos once printed on photo paper it may still be wet). As soon as I opened the tray (and it then opens again - you'll see what I mean) it printed A4 photo paper perfectly
Hope this helps others
