Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5500 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Colors are not the same

I have just purchased a new esp5 all-in-one printer on 12-26-08. The quallity is great, but the colors are different from what they look like on my computer and on my camera. They seem to be faded or toned down. I have used the editing to get better results, but I am having trouble getting consistency. Also I have copied some tax papers that had a blue copy stamped on it and the blue came out a lighter shade of blue.
I am wondering if it might be the ink cartridges that came with the printer. I am very satisfied with this printer!!!! I have a picture of an owl and printed it out on a 4x6 and some of my friends said " This is a postcard, you didn't print this" and " you could make some money off this picture ".
Thanks for your support, Jeff

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Black ink will not print

You may have blocked print head nozzles.
Try the printer maintenance to clear the printer nozzles.
After several deep cleaning attempts and there is no improvements in the printthen a new print head is required.
A new print head maybe expensive and it maybe more cost effective to purchase anew printer.

Can i use the printer without a color cartridge

Hi, I have the same printer and unfortunately you are unable to print at all if one of the cartridges is out of ink. This the reason Kodak inks are cheaper. If i'd know this at the time I would never have purchased the printer. Im in the process of finding the right printer for my needs now. Hope this helped.

YES - you need a new printehad. Very common problemwith KODAK printers. They should send you a new printhead for free - they did me. Their technical support is great (although in India) but they should send you a new one for free.

Printer paper is jammed. Is there a release?

is there a... what? you didnt provide additional information, and you left the question unfinished. is there a way to remove the paper? is there a solution? yes. the paper can be removed. but i dont have enough information.

Product summary The good: Improved photo quality over previous model; attractive design; large 3-inch LCD screen; easy-to-use Home Center software.
The bad: Poor quality build with several mechanical errors; average print speed; graphics quality still lacks definition.
The bottom line: The Kodak ESP5 is an attractive full color all-in-one printer, scanner, and copier, and casual photo enthusiasts will be happy with the watered-down editing software, but hard-core users should look elsewhere for a multifunction printer. The ESP5 is too expensive and suffers from too many mechanical deficiencies for us to give it our CNET stamp of approval.

you will continue to have these paper jams.

Wont except aftermarket printer cartridge error code "not recognized"

May be the cartridge is not detected by Kodak printer. Kodak printer works with genuine Kodak cartridges and that too brand new not refilled cartridges.The brand new cartridges have a certain code that is recognised by the Printer.Kindly buy genuine cartridges as the printer may be damaged by Non comaptible cartridges.
