I've changed the black ink cartridge but it won't print in black

Sounds like there is a problem with your printhead. You need to clean it using the printer itself (menu -- clean printhead -- deep clean). If this does not work, go to to get your printhead replaced, free of charge.

Kodak easyshare5300 printer won't print using word perfect progra

You should be able to use any Word Perfect program and print with it. It is a third party program to Kodak so it would be supported by Word Perfect. We have tested their software with our printer drivers and Home Center features and, as far as I know it all works fine. Have no fear of trying it. 
I would consider checking with the software makers involved to learn more about any additional information they may have.

I have a kodak easyshare5300 printer. The printer will not print in black ink and some times also in color.

Dear Kbrownsr,

Please check the ink/toner levels of the cartridges installed in your printer.

Steps to solve this problem.

1.) Check the ink levels by using the printer software provided with the printer.
2.) if the ink levels are low, the cartridges has to be replaced/refilled with new ones.
3.) if the ink levels are high or medium, try to do a calibration for the printer using printer tools provided by the printer vendor/ software.
4.) please do a cleaning cartridge and align cartridge options in the printer tools followed by a second calibration.
5.) if the ink levels are showing medium/high and still if the problem occurs, remove the cartridges from the printer and shake them well left to right and top to bottom. it may work fine.

if you did all these steps , and still find that problem is not solved, you may have to contact the concerned service technician for advanced help

All the best from FixYa

Hi Grandma,

Sorry to hear of your trouble.

I would remove the ink carts, reseat the print head then reinstall the ink carts. Try printing again to see if things improve. If it does good. If not try the Kodak online team. 800 421 6699 They will help you get things working correctly.

Talk to you soon,

Have Kodak Easyshare5300..installed new ink and still it is print very lightly..hard to read it

try to clean your printer:

the printer have its built in program,try to see its utility mode and click clean printer heads
do it 3times;

if the problem is still there...try to clean heads manually
(but 1rst be carefull to damage the heads and the printer must be unplug while you're cleaning it)
get some cottonbuds and dip it to hot water{hot water can melt some molded residue in ink}
and slightly and carefully clean the printer head.

No black print

I work for kodak with these printer's.
I provide tech support for them.
For this problem all i would recommend is doing the deep clean on the printhead twice, Doing it more then twice is a waste of ink and if it doesnt fix it the second time it won't.
Also replacing the black ink cartridge.
Also calibrating the printer has worked for me a few times.
I would not recommend cleaning the printhead manually, thats more of a chance to break it then fix it.
I would just recommend calling into the kodak tech support and getting a replacement printhead to fix that clogged nozzel problem.
