Normal 0 Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

My Kodak esp 5 printer prints the pictures with a pinkish Blue color. I replaced my 2 year old one with a new one and the problem still is there. How can I fix this?


It sounds as if the pictures are stored that way, especially if you've changed printers. Try downloading a color document and printing it. Do you get the same result? Also did you reload the software when you set up the new one? It's always good to delete the existing driver and start with a new one.

Problems with the pictures coming out right


if you search around the web, it looks like these printers only do photo quality on kodak paper.
Premium paper. You save money on ink, but have to be kodak paper. Make sure to load it with the glossy side down. I have tried several papers and settings and no photos look good unless I use kodak paper.
