Why am i getting blank copies from my printer


The chances are good that what U need to do is a printhead cleaning. On the printer if it has a LCD screen scroll through the menus and look for Maintenance or tools and then look for printhead cleaning . It can also be done through the software by going to the top left hand corner of the page U are trying to print and click on the button or File scroll down to print and click on that and that brings up a box with your printer name in it and beside that is a box called properties and look for maintenance or tools there. After the printhead cleaning it will ask if U want to print a test page - say yes if that page looks good -problem solved but it will probably take a few cleanings if U R getting blank pages now. Warning repeated cleanings use a lot of ink so only do what you need to. If after several cleanings U are still getting blank pages U might need to replace the printhead

You can barely read anything that is printed from my Kodak 5100 printer. I have replaced both the color and black ink cartridges. What do I try now?


Printhead clean, done from the maintenance on the printers software. Also if that doesnt help, contact the printer manufacturer for a replacement printhead.

Printer will only print in colour ink, not anything in black text


The issue your having is more then likely the ink cartridge itself or the printhead. Here is the steps in checking and possibly fixing the issue. Step 7 though should be done by a repair tech.

(1) Check that the orange cap or tap is not on the printhead.
(2) Remove the printhead and re-install it.
(3) Perform printhead cleaning, and visually check the test print for non-discharge of ink from nozzle.
(4) Perform head-refreshing, and visually check the test print for non-discharge of ink from nozzle.
(5) Replace the appropriate ink tank.
(6) Replace the printhead
(7) Replace the purge unit.

Printer Not Responding, 7 orange flashes


Don't replace the print head soooo fast...

Take the print head out first and clean the gold contacts...
I used a very fine sandpaper like emery cloth...

You might get 4 yellow blinks after that.
That is because the printhead was turned upside down to clean and the ink looked low and/or out.

Just wait a few minutes after cleaning and reset...
Mine worked fine after that.... smile....

Won't print in black


Hey Rusty, sorry to hear about the trouble youre having with Kodak tech support. In situations like this, I would definately think it's the printhead that is causing the image quality issue. To be positive though, here are the steps they will ask you to do before they replace a part:

Remove the black and color ink cartridges.
Right above where the black ink cartridge was, in the top left hand corner of the printhead, push up towards the ceiling and you should be able to push a button that releases the printhead.
Place the printhead right back into the printer and push straight back on the back wall.
You should hear a loud snap.
Replace the ink cartridges which should snap as well.
Close the printer.
After about a minute or so the printer will ask you to do a calibration.
Insert a paper and press start.
Scan the calibration sheet.
After that, in the menu, do a printhead clean.
Do one basic and one deep.
Print a demo sheet to see if anything has changed.
If the picture looks better, continue to do cleans.
In the event that it does not, the printhead will need to be replaced and since the printer is still under warranty, Kodak specialists will try to overnight you a printhead.
The whole process is short and free.
The number for Kodak AiO Support is 1 800 421 6699.

Not recognizing new ink cartridge


We had the same problem from the 1st day! Finally I took out the cartridges, rapped them smartly a time or two, said four letter words at them and replaced them. They now show up as full and the blinky red lights went away. Don't know how long this will last...
