Colour ink cartridge not reconise. replace colour ink cartridge.cod 3603


To resolve the issue:
  1. Make sure you install the correct type of KODAK Ink Cartridge for your printer. Currently we offer two types of ink cartridges (10 Series and 30 Series). Installing the wrong type of ink cartridge may result in this error. You will need to install a new, correct type of KODAK Ink Cartridge.
    NOTE: For more information, see Which ink cartridges to buy for all-in-one printer.
  2. If you are using the correct type of KODAK Ink Cartridge, reinstall the color ink cartridge.
    1. Open the printer access door.
      NOTE: If the ink cartridges don't move to the center, see Printhead and ink cartridges don't move to center with access door open.
    2. Wait until the printhead is idle and silent, then pinch the latch on the color ink cartridge with your thumb and forefinger and lift it out of the printhead.
    3. Install the color ink cartridge back into the printer, making sure to press down on the thumb tab until it clicks into place.
    4. Close the printer access door. For printers with LCDs, follow the instructions on the LCD screen.
      For more information on installing ink cartridges, see the Extended User Guide for your printer. Review Maintaining Your Printer - Replacing ink cartridges.
  3. If the error continues, restart your printer:
    1. Turn off the printer by pressing the power button.
    2. Wait five seconds.
    3. Turn on the printer.
  4. If the error continues, and you have extra, new KODAK Ink Cartridges on-hand, try to install a new ink cartridge (or a set of new ink cartridges).
  5. If the error continues, contact us.
When the issue is resolved, we highly recommend that you upgrade the firmware for your printer for optimum performance:
  1. Locate and select the firmware for your printer.
  2. Follow the instructions to install the firmware.

How do I replace the ink cartridge when it will not center when I lift the lid


Hi,

Since you are not able to find the carriage ( which holds the cartridges ) in center position, Try to move the carriage manually to center. Make sure the printer is On or you can turn it off and move it to center and replace the cartridges.

Also, follow the steps given below as well.

  1. Remove the color ink cartridge.
    • Open the printer access door. For printers with LCDs, follow the instructions on the LCD screen.
    • Wait until the printhead is idle and silent, then pinch the latch on the color ink cartridge with your thumb and forefinger and lift it out of the printhead.

      IMPORTANT: Make sure you are using KODAK Ink Cartridges. Your KODAK All-in-One Printer is designed to work with KODAK Ink Cartridges. Kodak is not responsible for the compatibility or performance of either non-Kodak brand ink cartridges or refilled ink cartridges. To purchase KODAK Ink Cartridges, go to Kodak's Web site, then to KODAK Store.

  2. Check the two electrical contacts on the ink cartridge for small marks, which should appear if the cartridge was installed correctly.

    If the electrical contacts do not have small marks:

    • Reinstall the ink cartridge, making sure you press down on it until it clicks into position.

    • Remove the color ink cartridge, then check the two electrical contacts on the ink cartridge again for small marks. Repeat if necessary.
    • Reinstall the ink cartridge.

  3. Close the printer access door. For printers with LCDs, follow the instructions on the LCD screen.
If the error condition continues, power cycle the printer:
  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the printer.
  3. Wait five seconds.
  4. Connect the power cord to the printer.
  5. Turn on the printer.
If the error is resolved, upgrade the firmware for your printer:
  1. Locate and select the firmware download for your printer.
  2. Follow the instructions to install the firmware.
If the error continues,try contacting the Kodak Tech support by clicking on contact us.

New ink cartridge for Kodak Easy Share 5300 will not work


The version of firmware you originally had on the printer when you changed the ink cartridge was bad. There is a known issue that when you put in a new ink cartridge when the printer is in the error state "COLOR INK EMPTY. REPLACE COLOR INK CARTRIDGE" the unit writes that value to the new ink cartridge so you will continue to have that error.

So to fix your problem Open the access door and Remove the ink cartridges. Then download and install the new Firmware. Heres the link.

Kodak AiO 5300 Firmware

Then sadly you have to go get another new ink tank and install it.

If you can get through to kodak you should request reimbursement of some sort like a free set of ink tanks.

I hope this helps
