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

Prints a black rectangle over picture

I have the Kodak ESP 5 AIO Printer. When I try to copy something it prints a big black rectangle over the entire copy. This is a recent development because I have made a copy before and it worked fine.

    The light didn't come on, and the black rectangle is still there. I don't want to keep wasting my black ink cartridge on solutions that do not work. I can print from the computer fine, but I can't scan or copy. Is this printer defective???

How can I over ride my ink level tracker on the Kodak ESP 7 printer? The printer must be using a counter because I never print in color but my color cartridge keeps showing that it is going down. ...


The Kodak printers are designed in such a way so as to work with combination of Both color and black ink..In other printers,the prints are not that sharp,but In kodak printers color are awesome because even if we print black and white,the color from the color ink is also taken to give you those lifetime prints.Unfortunately There is no way to overcome this ink indicator.You cans et the preferences in the printer settings to print in black and white in your computer .

My kodak esp3 will not scan it prints and copies.


I had the same problem and I got it to work. I have Windows Vista and Microsoft Office 2007 on my computer. Here's what I did...

Go to "Start" then "Control Panel".
-Click on "Programs and Features".
-Scroll down to Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007 - click on that and then click on the "Change" link above.
-A box will pop up, click on "Add or Remove Features" and then click "Continue".
-Click on the "+" next to "Office Tools"
-Click on the "+" next to "Microsoft Office Document Imaging"
-Click on the down arrow next to "Scanning, OCR and Indexing..."
-Then, click on "Run from my Computer"
-Next click on "Continue" at the bottom of the dialogue box and your configuration process should begin

Once completed go to the start menu and type in "Scan" into the search box. Go to "Microsoft Office Document Scanning" Once there, plug your scanner into you computer, chose what color you want your scan to be in, and click on the picture of the scanner to the right. To make my scans clear, I had to click on "Scanner..." and chose KODAK ESP AiO as my scanner even though I have a KODAK ESP-3 printer/scanner.

I hope these instructions weren't too confusing and I hope this helps some of you out! My scanner was causing me a lot of frustration for a while!
