Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5300 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Won't print on regular paper

My printer is just a year old and now it won't print on regular paper. I've already tried the calibration, clean printer head, and replace the cartridge. If i try to print documents from word or excel, it does its motion and prints it blank. If there's picture on the document, it prints the picture faded, but the words are blank. However if i use a 8"x11" photo paper, it prints perfect. And using the picture tray to print pictures is working and fine. I'm thinking that the height of the head needs to get adjusted, but i don't know how... Help me please

My quess would be that printhead is becoming clogged, photos don't use as much ink as plain paper printouts that is why they look faded! You need to call Kodak tech support!

R320 printer won't print on thick photo paper anymore. Regular copy paper works fine. Are there rollers or sensors that I can get to so I can clean and check? Is there a fix for this problem?


  • Make sure that the paper meets paper specifications of the product.
  • Spray compressed in air.
  • If it is a non-Epson brand paper, try Epson paper
  • Make sure that settings are setup properly, Some Epson products have a Thick paper and envelopes or Thick paper to allow it accommodate thick media

Paper out error


Have you tried a full media calibration from the menu (removing 8" of label from the backing)? Also if a label has left any pieces behind on the rollers, strike plate, etc it can cause this problem. I use a solvent like Goo Gone to make it clean, but be careful not to wipe the sensors with it. Also I have seen this when my users miss a roller when loading the ribbon. Make it clean, load it carefully and usually it works.

The black ink on my Brother DCP-130C won't print and it's a brand new ink cartridge. I thought it was a defected cartridge so I bought another one, same thing. The other 3 colours print ok though....


I have the same problem. Everything on the printer is working just fine. It'll do a test page just fine, so everything's working right. The %$^ thing just won't print. It makes noise like it's printing when you give it a print job, but it spits out blank pages.

Hi

Did you try to calibrate on the same media what you want to print?

Try to delete any other calibrations stored. And re-calibrate the plotter on the same media or a plain paper.

My printer simply wont print, I just get blank pages even when printing the test page. I have tried cleaning, deep cleaning nozzle alignment, everything!


HI there,
It sounds like you've done everything right, and it still won't print. Your printer is dead - and you need a new one.

Our 5300 won't print black text yet there is more black ink than colour.


Try this one, Turn on the printer, Take out the inks, remove the printhead, put back the printhead make sure it will snap and you hear a click, put the inks back, wait for the printer to initialize, Press the Menu button, look for Calibrate printer, then print calibration page, then scan it after. Load a regular paper. Then try to print a demo page by pressing Photo and Copy at the same for 5 seconds then let it go. If same problem persist call this no for further assistance 1800 421 6699

Trouble printing--only half the picture comes out!! I have had this system for 3 years and no problem--now all of a sudden the top of the print comes out white. HELP!


The control panel shows your printer and it will have a "clean cartrage option or you can get a new printer for $40. The ink cartrages cost the same as the new printer now days. 3 years is a good life and you may like the new printer better anyway.
