Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5100 All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

KODAK EASYSHARE 5300 BLACK VERTICAL LINE ON ALL MY PRINTS Greetings. My name is Stephen and only recently, has my printer been acting up. I have had my share of troubles with it over the last year, but this one I don't know what to do. I have a black line that runs through the 8.5x11 letter paper, and when I try to print 4x6 inch photos, an inch inward, starting from the top, and ending on the bottom, a black line runs through my photo, ruining everything. I have done these procedures: "clean printhead", "calibrate printer", opened up the printer, reinstalled each cartridge, uninstalled printhead, cleaned underneath. In the past, I had Kodak send me a brand new Printhead, and that solved my problem in the past. I don't even recall what the problem was then, and wonder what it is today. Any productive help is of course, quite welcome. Thank you, advance. Stephen

    Thank you for your attempted solution. I don't think that is the problem, however, because now I am getting pinkish color on the photos I am printing. What I mean is, the picture, supposed to be blue, is pink.
    What are your thoughts, please?
    Thanks.
    Steve

Check the paper path. It sounds like you might have a piece of debris laying down a line of ink when the paper goes past it. If that doesn't fix it, you might need another printhead. Kodak replaced mine without any problems.

Try unplugging and repluging the printer to the computer.

Make sure the printer settings are correct in the printers properties box in windows (or other system)

Try another USB port and finally uninstall and reinstall the printer ,if it doesn't solve it then it will have to go to a Kodak service center.

Printing greetings cards and envelopes


At the moment it is printing both sides of Greetings cards, but this printer appears to be very sensitive with regards to placng card in the exact position in the paper tray.

Why it will not print envelopes without smudging I still don't know, so I shall just have to write address by hand after I place graphic on the envelope

This 5300 was a Christmas gift from my wife and if I could afford to change it I would. The performance is very dissapointing

Kindest Regards
