KODAK 5300 WILL NOT PRINT

The printer sounds like it is printing, but the page is blank. The print on the diagnostics page is good. I have done a basic clean of the print head. What's the deal?

Try try again..........

I had this problem;

Printhead replacement instructions are in the users guide.

THIS WORKED FOR ME --AND IF YOU CALL THE TECH SUPPORT # KODAK WILL SEND YOU A REPLACEMENT HEAD........
Power on printer, the printhead rides on a carriage that is connected to the ribbon cable. When the printhead is in the center position and movement is stopped REMOVE THE INK CARRIAGES. DO NOT TOUCH THE INK-PADS OR THE CONNECTION POINTS. You can just place the ink carriages on their side on a clean piece of paper.

......... To separate the printhead from the carriage press the release botton(above the bulls-eye sticker) in the top center of the printhead. You will hear a click and the top of the prinhead will pop forward about 1/4 of an inch. GENTLY lift from back (where you pressed the botton) to front and lift the printhead up and out of the printer.
---------U will see where the printhead and the carriage connect-------

It is best (very important) to not touch the shiny contact area

Now you are ready to install your new printhead.

BE CAREFUL BE GENTLE............Place the new printhead into the carriage and again at the center top back bulls-eye press back until you hear the click and the printhesd is secured in the carriage.......... replace the ink carriages.......

I would power off the printer and wait about 60 seconds then power on and run self test.

TO RUN SELF TEST

power on the printer and wait until the printhead is in the center position THEN press photo and copy buttons at the same time, you will hear the printhead carriage start to move and a test print page will print.

CHECK for print quailty; run all diag. from the help tab as needed.

REMEMBER; IF YOU THINK THE PLASTIC WILL CRACK U ARE PRESSING TOO HARD....... KEEP IT CLEAN, BE SAFE

Since I have my new computer and have downloaded the Windows 7 driver, when my printer prints, after each page it kicks out a blank page. Any suggestions...thanks.


it could be that on the document that you print, you have an extra page there. so be extra careful, go to the print settings and put in from which page to which page you want the printer to print.

Kodak Easyshare 5300 printer will not print black


Print a self test diagnostic page to check the status of the black ink and print heads.

To print the self-test diagnostic page

Control panel: Press (Configuration Page button), or press and hold the (Cancel button) for 3 seconds.

For models that support networks: Press (Configuration Page button).

If these are all showing OK then clean the printheads

To clean the printheads
If printed characters are incomplete, or dots or lines are missing from printouts, ink nozzles might be clogged and you might need to clean the printheads.

NOTE: Cleaning uses ink, so clean the printheads only when necessary.

The cleaning process takes up to 3.5 minutes. Some noise might be generated in the process.
Control panel: Press and hold (Power button), press (Cancel button) two times, press (Resume button) one time, and release (Power button).

If this fails then replace the black cartridge and run a clean cycle again and then a self test diagnostic then try printing again.

5300 will print only blanks


tking,

See my post that I just put. I just called Kodak and they said that it is the print head. THe black or the color may stop working for no good reason. I had this issue w/ my 5300. It was fine, then 3 minutes later the black stopped. Cleaning the heads won't work.

Call the Kodak customer service line (found on their contact website) and they will set up a case and send you the print head(s) for free. They'll ask for your service number (which is located on a sticker on the bottom left corner of the machine, where you'd change the ink). They didn't ask the age, how often I use it, where/when I bought it....nothing - just what that number was, and what the problem was.

It takes 2-3 business days to send you the print head though - so ughhh to that, but it is free! Yippee! If you are okay with this - I changed the color of my text to blue (since my black wouldn't print) and I printed temporarily everything in blue (until I ran out of color ink!)

Hope that helps!
