Question about Kodak EASYSHARE Plus Series 3 Thermal Photo Printer

Open Question

Kodak easy share print dock series 3 only prints half a photo

I have this model print dock that I use to print photos. Upon changing the color cartridge to this model, the pictures that used to print perfectly, are now only printing the bottom half of the photo. I need a detailed walkthrough on what to do to resolve this problem. I have disassembled the chassis and removed the circuit boards, but now I am stuck. Upon research on this website, i came upon this article which instructs me to remove a plastic lever from the device:

"To remove the plastic lever, first remove two screws from back of unit, then pull up on top of unit, unplug two ribbon cables from circuit board and remove top. Then unplug two remaining ribbon cables from circuit board, and three screws holding circuit board. Lift circuit board and fan/fan-holder as one piece. Finally, disengage tab on plastic retainer on end of metal shaft, rotate tab straight up and lift shaft up and to the side (may require a little wiggling). The plastic lever slides off the metal shaft."

I am just looking for some clarification as to what they are referring to here. Any photographic instructions on how to do this would be greatly appreciated. I can handle the rest, but I am just a bit confused on what to do there.

SOURCE: Only half of picture is printing

I have the same problem where only the bottom half of my photo prints. It worked fine for a long time. I even tried flashing the printer up to the 2.11 firmware version from 1.90 - still nothing. Changed paper and cartridge. NOTHING. Tried attaching it to both my PC & MAC and even print stand alone picture from camera and a SD memory card on the side. NOTHING.

I think the problem is with Kodak... My trouble started when I decided to move my Dock Printer from PC over to MAC. The new drivers have you flash the Firmware. To do this, you first must hold down the Print and Red EYe Button (The button directly to the right of the big print button) with the power cord unplugged and then plug it in holding the buttons in for 2 seconds afterward.

This put the printer into Edit mode and allows the firmware to upgrade the printer. Once I did that, THAT'S when my problem started. I think these crappy printers can NOT self calibrate and they must be factory set. Most likely, they need to do it at the factory themselves and are all to happy to charge you to ship it off and do it for you.

THANKS KODAK!

What a POS.

Yes you can, but you need an appropriate USB cable----takes a regular USB type A on one end and a USB type MINI B (but NOT MICRO) on the other end. Kodak has one for 25 bucks. Stop at your local WalMart and pay 15 bucks or order it from Walmart.com for under 5 bucks (plus shipping of less than 3 bucks):

Just got a cable for similar use myself......Happy printing.

Does the test print also print only half of the printer? If so, give Kodak a call - bad printer
If the test print works, try changing the usb cable.

Check the version of AiO software you are using. We had to re-install the Aio Kodak software yesterday because the print que did not register when I changed the ink cartridges. The AiO would scan, but the computer side still thought it was out of ink.

Perhaps the latest software will fix your problem too.

Printer dock does not pick up paper.


Try to clean the rubber rollers with lint free cloth. Make sure you are using Kodak Xtralife paper. At the back of the paper it should say "Xtralife".
