Usb cables are universal, the only reason it may not match is if the MAN. sent the printer with it's own cable. That would not seem to be a Canon thing to do if it were a Dell then yes.
Also, try this the USB cable will only fit in one way, try turning it the other way and see if it fits. the silver end part has a line down the middle that part should be in the down position.

I have a kodak 5300 printer. I recently had the


Reinstall your windows or 'Recover' or 'Restore' to an earlier date, perhaps to the original 'new' date.

Let the operating system find the drivers for your printer again, or install the right drivers for your operating system and printer combination, off of the website for Kodak.

Good luck.

I continue to get Printer disconnected with vista. I can not no maatter what I try get it to connect.


Try a new USB cable and/or a different port. (If you are using a print server or USB hub, try a direct connection.) Make sure the USB ports aren't disabled for security or power savings. (Check the device manager from the Control Panel in Windows and the advanced settings from the Screen Saver settings.) Check if a known working device works in the USB port.

Some of these printers have monitoring software as part of their full-featured software, so check that this software is running.

The worst case scenario is to try the firmware update from the above link. Try everything else first, the firmware update can cause more problems.

I hope this helps.

Kodak 5300 printer problem


I would suggest the following :

1) Remove the Kodak printer and all its software.
2) Disconnect the USB cable from the computer.
3) Reinstall the entire software applications for the printer just as if you were installing it for the first time.
4) When asked to connect the printer .. Use a different USB port .. even if you have to switch something out .. but do this step irregardless.

Now what I want to know is ..
1) Can you print from the computer?
2) Black still "gone" ?

Let me know

Sharing 5300 with more than one computer


You can do this by using a router. If your home lan is wired then you would connect all computers to the ethernet ports on the router. Run the usb cable from the printer to the the computer. Turn on all computers you wish to be in the network as well as the printer & any modem you use to connect to your isp. Connect one computer to the internet. Start running the network wizard on each computer, starting with the one connected to the internet. When you have finished the wizard on all computers you might need to install the printer driver on all the other computers. You should now be able to print from any computer connected to your network. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

Kodak AIO Easyshare 5300 scanning problem


Could be USB connection if you have another cable try it. Try connecting to different USB ports on your PC. If you have a Powerd USB hub lying around try connecting the printer to the PC through that.

Also try disconnecting all USB devices including the printer. Reboot your PC. Connect only the printer and try and scan.

Some times multiple USB devices dont work when they are both connected to the same PC.

Hope this helps!
