Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5300 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I got my new printhead, but how do I get the old one out....no instructions in manual.
I had this problem;
Printhead replacement instructions are in the users guide.
THIS WORKED FOR ME
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

Take out the ink cartrages first. you will see a bulls eye with a finger to push. right above the bulls eye there is a tab,( the tab is not part of the printhead tray just a release button) push tab and printhead tray will release take out and replace with new one. also replace both black and color cartrages as to insure maximum operation of unit. old cartrages may hender performance of unit because of cleaning attempt.
