Re: esp 5 printer will not print color photos
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

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.
take out both cartridges from ur printer,install them again. ry to print again.kodak printers works on the mechanism that even if ur printing black and white documents, it will take ink out of colour cartridge as well . try to upgrade the firmware of ur printer by going to www.kodak.com/go/downloads and downloading latest firmware from there on ur desktop,connect ur printer to computer and run that file. restart ur printer,ur issue will be resolved.

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.
