Question about Kodak ESP 5 Printer

1 Answer

Kodak ESP-5 AiO says "0%" ink even after I install new cartridges

The printer gave an error saying that the ink cartridges were empty. So, I installed two new cartridges that I bought today. Yet, the printer said that it was still out of ink, black and color. I doubt that the other cartridges were both empty at the exact same time now. There must be another problem. What do you suggest I do to fix it?

The Kodak printers are designed in such a way so as to work with combination of Both color and black ink..In other printers,the prints are not that sharp,but In kodak printers color are awesome because even if we print black and white,the color from the color ink is also taken to give you those lifetime prints.Unfortunately There is no way to overcome this ink indicator.You cans et the preferences in the printer settings to print in black and white in your computer .

Kodak AiO home Center will not open


My son has the same model and issue. I had him go to http://www.kodak.com/global/en/service/downloads/dln_ekn034524.jhtml?pq-path=12667 and get the latest software and firmware update.

Make sure to use the dropdown to select your operating system. The page defaults to XP.

The software is a new version of the AIO home center.

The firmware installer updates the physical printer. Before you run this program be sure to read and understand the instructions.

If both ink cartridges have good levels of ink, and you keep getting the clean the print head issue after updating both the software and the firmware, then call Kodak support. 1-800-421-6699, 7 A.M. to midnight Eastern time, 7 days a week. They will ask you if you put in new cartridges and installed the updates for the firmware and the AiO centre software. Be patient. They will get a solution for you.

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
