Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5100 All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

I used generic ink and now my printer isnt working like before

Hi; im fran and i have a kodak 5100 all in one printer. i ordered a generic brand ink and when i tried it it stunk, so i stopped using it and ordered my kodak ink like i should have in the beginning. well i put the ink wells in clicked them and tried to print. well its a mess first, most of the time the paper only prints what it likes and margins. the paper is mostly blank. i just tried again and it printed a kodak add its so light you can read it and the two faces look like the girls are possessed. i dont know what to do, i looked and it said something about cleaning the printer head, i dont even know where it is. we are not computer smart and we are not printer smart either, can you explain it in real simple terms so someone like me can get it running.. forever grateful fran from chatham

Some new printers will not take generic ink they have a metallic strip on the cartridge that communicates and sends a message this is not genuine or this is a refill

Kodak has had problems with the print heads on these printers. Call their Customer Support at 1-800-421-6699, 9 A.M. to midnight Eastern time, 7 days a week. They will probably ship you a replacement print head and cartridges.

My kodaks colors are dull with brand new ink cartriges. hasnt been used for a while either. any advice?


Hi,

in this case it's a failure of the printhead. Go to www.kodak.com/go/itg and choose All-in-one printer - Print quality. Follow the steps and if it not helps you can order a printhead for free.

Ihave the easy 5100 and it has brand new ink


Did you run the Clean Print Head feature? Did you align print heads and make sure everything is aligned? There are a few tests you can do to make sure everything is lined up correctly. If you need help, try here: http://www.kodak.com/global/en/service/products/ekn033539.jhtml?pq-path=9098

Im trying to download software for kodak 5100 but it keeps saying error 0x80131700...says system DLL's couldnt be loaded?


Is that the full error? if so I'd suggest you stop your background applications using MSCONFIG and then run the Kodak Clear Utility - www.kodak.com/go/clear.

Once done then install the software from www.kodak.com/go/drivers

I screwed up used other brand


Yes it is always recommended to use the brand name ink for your printer. I know it cost a little more but the quality is better. Not much you can do except take it out and throw it away and get a new cartridge. The longer the Generic stays in the worse you're problems will be, especially if the ink leaks into the rollers...
