Hello,

 

 

Me is Vikram Kumar Thumu, I have seen your message on the  issue related to the HP Deskjet 5150 Printer. I would like to provide my suggestions on this issue.

 

The issue could be happen due to following below reasons:

2. If you are using a refilled ink cartridge

3. If there is an issue with fault with ink cartridge or an issue with ink cartridge slot in the Printer.

4. If there is an issue with Hardware malfunction of Printer.

 

Well, to resolve the issue I recommend you to try below solutions.

 

Note **: Your Printer supports below ink cartridges:

 

Cartridge Part number Black HP 56 (C6656A) Tri-color HP 57 (C6657A) Photo cartridge (optional) HP 58 (C6658A)

 

Check whether you can installed correct ink cartridges for the Printer or not.

 

Solution 1: To Hard Reset Printer once.

------------------------------------------------------------

Once if you have opened the web link, please perform the steps that are mentioned in the web page for cleaning ink cartridges and also steps for cleaning ink cartridge slot assembly in the Printer.

 

I hope that this should resolve the issue. However, if the issue still persists then please go ahead with next solution 3

 

Solution 3: Testing the ink cartridges of the Printer

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

To isolate the issue by testing the Printer Hardware functionality with " Reserve mode printing " ( this is also called as 'Back up mode'). This is referred as using the Printer with only single ink cartridge. Your Printer model supports for this feature.

 

Steps are :

 

1. Open top access cover of Printer and remove the Black ink cartridge from Printer ,make sure that Printer is installed with Color ink cartridge only . Then close the top access cover firmly. Please turn off Printer and Wait for 30 seconds and then turn ON Printer. Check the status of blinking lights on the Printer. If you do not see any blinking lights on the Printer front panel, then cartridge is fine. We can now go ahead with testing Cartridge functionality along with Hardware test of Printer.

 

Please do these below steps to test Cartridge and hardware of Printer:

 

1. Turn the printer on.
2. Press and hold the POWER button until step 4.
3. Press the RESUME button four times.
4. Release the POWER button.

 

This should print a self test page. If you see any information printed on the page, then it confirm that Printer and cartridge is fine else if there is no information printed on the page then it confirms that Cartidge is Out of ink.

 

Note: you may receive a error code on the test page, please do not worry about that.

 

Please do below steps similarly to check the issue with Color ink cartridge..

 

Open top access cover of Printer and remove the Color ink cartridge from Printer ,make sure that Printer is installed with Black ink cartridge only . Then close the top access cover firmly. Please turn off Printer and Wait for 30 seconds and then turn ON Printer. Check the status of blinking lights on the Printer. If you do not see any blinking lights on the Printer front panel, then cartridge is fine. We can now go ahead with testing Cartridge functionality along with Hardware test of Printer.

 

Please do these below steps to test Cartridge and hardware of Printer:

 

1. Turn the printer on.
2. Press and hold the POWER button until step 4.
3. Press the RESUME button four times.
4. Release the POWER button.

 

This should print a self test page. If you see any information printed on the page, then it confirm that Printer and cartridge is fine else if there is no information printed on the page then it confirms that Cartidge is Out of ink.

 

Note: you may receive a error code on the test page, please do not worry about that.

 

I hope this should resolve the issue. If the issue still persists then you may need to service the Printer once.

My printer states "paper jam" although I don't see any paper. I bought new ink cartridges & it doesn't print the multi-color, only the black.


Paper jam means just that. Look for paper or a piece of paper jammed into a gear or stuck between a roller or even in your ink cartridge . When you put in your new ink did you take off the protective seal and run the HP software to check if it is reading the Cartridge ,You might want to read the instruction on how to install an ink cartridge. It might also help 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

If they are try taking them out and put them in again.
