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

1 Answer

Printhead I have been having trouble with my printer and it is only a year old, nothing will print out and if it does very faint, the print head has been cleaned and taken out and cleaned and we have come to the conclusion that the printhead is no good (I also had a tech over to check it out) so why after only a year would I need a printhead and reading other stories on this site people have had the same problem. I think I am intitled to a new printhead since thisone didn't last at all....any help!

Same one as everyone else apparently-i purchased the kodak aio 5300 three years ago and have had nothing but trouble with it. I had to order another printhead right from the start after spending hours on...


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out in the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages,then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.

My printer has not been used for a while, and I have just replaced the ink cartridges. I am still getting nothing but blank or VERY faint pages. Could my printhead be clogged, and how would I fix it?


Hi
Most likely the print heads are clogged.The old ink sets up and dries out over time and lack of use.The link is to a how-to article on an easy way of cleaning the heads.
If this helps,would you rate my post?
Thanks

U052 prnt head is incorrect install the correct print head...it is the correct head head made by Canon how can I get rid of this message and resume printing..


You can check that it's installed properly, after that all you can do is replace the printhead. They are like a light bulb and burn out when you least expect it. If you printer is less than a year old Canon will replace the printhead, after a year you have to buy a new one. Anywhere from $60.00 to $100.00 The part number is on the side of the printhead, the number starts with QY6, the numbers after that are the actual part number.

I have a 7 year old Lexmark 2381plus dot matrix printer. Recently, the print on the last page of the 3 part form has become very hard to read (very light). I changed the ribbon and have the form setting...


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

It would seem you posted twice.

Based on your description, the printer is working, it is not a form issue, the printer head is good, an adjustment might be needed and it works, there is no reason to replace the Lexmark 2381plus printer even if it is 7 years old (not unless you would want to).

To the faint printing on the last of the 3 pages:
  • the take-up spool/wheel drawing the ribbon is not working (most likely). The ribbon is not moving hence the printer head is not striking fresh ribbon area. Check the ribbon cartridge, it may be stuck or the driving spindle where the ribbon's take-up spool/wheel locks into. It may need a bit of cleaning and/or lubrication;
  • the printer head is slightly adjusted away from the paper. Normally, there is a mechanical lever/adjustment that sets how many paper & duplicates are fed. Adjust for 1 only.
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

HP 7110 still won't print in color


Your post "...it prints very faint horizontal lines in color..." is indicative that indeed your color printheads are clogged and would need repetitive deep head cleaning. This is of course would require that you keep on cleaning until such time as the faint color lines have turned to legible print.

Printhead Problems


Since buying the L7780 printer for our business office two years ago, the printer has been a work horse for us. The problems I've seen online about scanning, paper jams and ink cartridge issues have been none existent. Then it was time to change the print head. The L7780 printed several pages before the print head error message appeared and the printer ceased printing. We tried all the solutions offered online including another print head and cartridges but to no avail. We were ready to buy a new printer. Then a member our team whom we dubbed “Service Tech 130” came up with the solution. Service Tech 130 simply pried the chips off both print heads with a screw driver and super glued the old chip onto the new print head. Now the printer has been working as if nothing was every wrong.
For this to work for those of you having the same problem, you would have to be in possession of the old print head that worked prior to the error. Attached is an image showing the location of the chip. Hope this works for you as it did for us.9101d4c.gif

New printhead will only print 3eBK, no color


If you're concerned with a clogged printhead try to clean it with acetone solution. Also, check the cable connections to your printerheads they might be loosened..

Not printing


Sounds like the print head is stuffed, unrcomical to repair. The print head in epsons is seperate from ink cartridges that you have changed. Printheads are often damaged by inferior inks traveling threw it,
