Our printer (Kodak 5300 AiO) won't print pictures no matter what program we print them from. All we get is a few colored lines across the page. What should we be doing?


Follow the trouble shooting guide lines that came with your printer. I had the same problem and followed those procedures and then contacted Kodak with the info. It turns out that the printer head is bad and They WILL send You 1 FREE of charge and a free color and black cartrige along with it. The print head just snaps out and the new one snaps back in and You send it back in the prestamped envelope. the Printer parts are guaranteed for LIFE and are free if You follow the guidelines in the trouble shoot area.
Hope This Helps:

Kodak EasyShare 5100 stopped printing in black


1-800-421-6699.. That is the number for Kodak. They will replace your printhead for you. I've been dealing with this same thing. Along with replacing the printhead they are sending black and color ink. All Free! I'm really excited. The people are very friendly and helpful. They know what they're doing. BTW, the replacements should be here in 3-5 days.

Kodak Easyshare 5100 Wont Print In Color Or Black


For all of those problems, you need to replace the Printhead. This is one of the most common issues among the Kodak All in One Printers, they simply stop printing text. However, it seems that Kodak is sending out some new printheads that work so much better, so you should get in contact with their support and have them replace their printheads. Call cb_transparent_l.gifus.gifspace.gifspace.gifarrow.gifspace.gifspace.gifspace.gifspace.gifspace.gifspace.gifspace.gif1-800-421-6699cb_transparent_r.gif.
