Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5100 All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

Printer will not print with black ink.

My Kodak 5100 will not print anything that requires black ink. I've replaced the both cartridges on two separate occasions, but still no luck. Any suggestions before I toss it out in the garbage?? It's not even a year old.

Contact Kodak. My printhead failed on the black side. They replaced it without any questions. Hopefully you registered the printer when you bought it. It is your warranty.

Can the printer print with just a black ink cartridge?


The KODAK All-in-One Printer uses an advanced built-in printhead. The system is designed to provide excellent image and text quality, while eliminating the need to purchase new printheads every time you replace ink cartridges, and saving you money. The printing system requires that both the black and color ink cartridges be installed to print. If either cartridge is not installed or is out of ink, the printer or printhead will not print correctly.





If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

You can barely read anything that is printed from my Kodak 5100 printer. I have replaced both the color and black ink cartridges. What do I try now?


Printhead clean, done from the maintenance on the printers software. Also if that doesnt help, contact the printer manufacturer for a replacement printhead.

Kodak 5100 Needs Both Cartridges To Print?


Unfortunately, you cannot used the printer if one of the ink cartridge is empty., compare to the other printers you can print a black text or gray scale if the color is empty or one of the cartridge is empty.

All kodak printers work the same both cartridges should have ink on ink before you can use It.

I have a Kodak 5100 all in one printer, I just replaced the black ink cartridge and now it won't print anything but come black lines. How can I fix this?


hi there,

you have to check some of the possible cause why the print won't print:
  • make sure that the ink was properly seated on the carriage.
  • do a printer head cleaning. do deep printer head cleaning using the printer utilities installed on your PC.
just let me know for further clarification, k.

My printer will not print anything.


Contact Kodak support from the Kodak webpage. Do the chat online. Sounds to me that it is the printhead. They may find that the printhead needs to be replaced. I did it today and they are sending me a new printhead plus spare ink cartridges for free (2-3) days.
