Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5300 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I ran out of color ink and ordered more. My black ink was fine (old cartridge not needing to be replaced yet). When trying to print, my black ink would not work, so I did a bunch of things to try to fix it and printed several test pages... black ink still won't work even if I put a brand new black ink cart. in. But, now my color ink says it needs to be replaced again. It must have a sensor that goes by how many pages I've printed out, but literally, I just replaced this like 4 days ago and have not printed enough to be through an entire color ink cart. already. How do i force it to let me continue to use my brand new cart.?

Here are the things you will be asked to try if you call support. They may fix the problems as well. Taking the printhead out and putting it back in is the big helper.
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.
(If this is a 5100, do it in the home center ->? in the top right ->Maintainence ->Clean Printhead.)
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.
