You need to contact kodak and ask for a replacement print head, explain the code and whats been happening.

www.kodak.co.uk

They will probably tell you to download new drivers and wash your printhead ect ect but nothing that helps.

I had the same problem with the same printer.

I couldn't get Kodak to send out a printhead, so after weeks of messing around, I took it back for a refund.

If you do manage to get a new printhead here are the instructions on how to remove and replace it.

Getting a print error 3802, just installed printer today. As soon as we changed quality to best, got error code.


Hi. Error means your printer failed to communicate with the printhead. If issue is not resolved by turning the printer off/on then you need to buy a new printhead. Here's a link on how to install a new printhead.

Kodak 5300 first said error 3802 now says print head missing or loose


I got the same Problem as listed above. This is the way how I was able to solve it:
  • Remove the color and black ink cartridges and the printhead. (the 5300 Printhead can be removed by pressing a button on top of the carriage and a slight pull --> for better instructions use this official Kodak PDF)
  • Try to clean the printhead and the carriage with a slighty wet cloth from ink. CAUTION!: better not touch the green electronic chip! Be carefull while cleaning.
  • Reinstall the printhead and the ink cartridges.
  • If the printer detects a 'new' printhead just do a calibration and your are done. If not try to print a test page.

Hope this solves the Problem. Best wishes
