Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5300 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

My printer is not printing very well.

The colors are not right, Black doesn't show up at all. I didn't have this problem when I started using the 5300. I have done four deep cleans and it has not gotten any better. Any help you can give would help.

    I just changed the black ink and it is printing out very faded print. It did this last time we changed the ink. We moved and the printer was un-plugged and then plugged back in. It worked great! Now, with the new ink cartridge, it is horrible. This printer was bought in October 2008. Is there anything you have to do besides installing a new cartridge?

I want to print using my lexmark X6170 but I don't want to print color so I didn't put a color cartridge in. It keeps coming up with an error message and won't print at all.


Some printers require you to have the color cartridges in them even when you are printing black and white. You usually can in your print options choose black and white over color.

If you are printing using a color (not "black cartridge only" ) driver, yes, the printer won't print because it uses a "process black" when you use a color driver.
In other words it creates black using the 3 colors, and doesn't actually touch the black cartridge.
You will need to change the default driver to one that you create.
go into control panel, hardware and sound, devices and printers (win7)
right click the officejet 6500 (not the fax driver) and click printer properties
click the advanced tab, and click printing defaults
click the fast economical printing template.
Change "print in gray scale" to Black Ink Only
Click "save as" and name the profile "black draft"
click the newly created "black draft" profile, and click APPLY and OK
This will now be your default, and it will print in black and white while the color cartridges are empty.

It seems to me a logical problem. Not hardware. Wich software are you using to print? CorelDraw? If so, in the miscelaneous tab in the printing settings (ctrl+e), check if the option "bitmap output" is not in the "grey scale" mode.

If an inkjet printer has not been used for some time and several print head cleaning has been done and it still does not print properly then the nozzles in the print head are blocked.
Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent nozzles blocking with dried ink.
You need to replace the print head to get the printer functioning again.
But these print heads are expensive to replace, it may be better to buy a better and a later model printer for not much more costs.

My printer doesnt print out color, only black..


3 things will cause this. Either you are simply out of color ink, the print head is clogged or your driver is set to print only grayscale or black and white.

You can run the cleaning cycle a few times to see if you start to get it printing colors. If you printed a bunch of color stuff the last time you used it and it has set for a week or more (sometimes less) then the ink can dry and block the sprayed ink. The cleaning cycle helps clean it off and restore printing.

You can also look at the print settings from the start - then printers and then right click on your printer and then look at printing preferences. There should be a setting that says print color or gray scale or auto. It may also show you the status of the ink, if they are empty or not.

Usually after all this you will find it just needs quite a few clean cycles and away it goes.

Try cleaning the black print head, It might make a difference. You need to do this through your software preferences.

Can I set default printing to black and white for color laser printer?


Yes. Any printer's default options can be set as desired. Open the printer's properties (Start/Control Panel/Printers/right click the printer and left click Properties), and change the setting as you wish, then click OK. Those settings should be used each time you use the print command, unless you change the settings for that particular print job.

Hope this helps, and please rate my advice, good OR bad.

Good luck!
