Kodak printer dock

I used the printer dock for the first time. Followed instructions exactly. Pushed the print button and it printed but sent the picture out the front where the loader dock is. I tried to get the pic out and then the dock retrieved the pic and pulled up another blank pic film. At this point, the printer jammed with the pic half way out. I tried to pull it out as instructed in the manual but this cannot be done. I don't want to ruin the printer so what do I do now? I have followed all the steps in the Touble shooting manual.

If the boundary between the blank half and the printed half is a sharp line, a wire to the print head may be broken or disconnected. If the boundary is irregular (wanders up and down an 1/8 inch or so), the problem is most likely a broken plastic lever on the end of the shaft that moves the print head. The plastic lever is keyed to the shaft by a flat on the shaft. The plastic has a tendency to split at the edge of the flat, resulting in the lever slipping on the shaft. This in turn results in one side of the print head not contacting the paper with sufficient pressure. The other end of the shaft has a thick plastic sector gear which is much less likely to break.

I fixed mine by making a clamp from a metal spacer (made from split tube about 1/8 inch long) and force fitting it over the part of the plastic lever that fits on the metal shaft (on the end towards the inside of the unit). There is just enough clearance to do this without hitting the print head frame.

To remove the plastic lever, first remove two screws from back of unit, then pull up on top of unit, unplug two ribbon cables from circuit board and remove top. Then unplug two remaining ribbon cables from circuit board, and three screws holding circuit board. Lift circuit board and fan/fan-holder as one piece. Finally, disengage tab on plastic retainer on end of metal shaft, rotate tab straight up and lift shaft up and to the side (may require a little wiggling). The plastic lever slides off the metal shaft.

SOURCE: Purchased a Kodak easyshare M320 can not figure out how to set

You have two options for getting the date printed on your pictures. One is to set the appropriate option in whatever software you're using to print. The other is to have the camera put it there in the image itself. This means that if the date happens to cover something important, you won't be able to get it back.

To set the camera to put the date stamp on every picture, press Menu, use left/right to highlight Setup, then use up/down to access "Date Stamp".

Here is a blog about troubleshooting the printer:
Someone on another blog suggested checking your print settings, to make sure they match the paper size.
Couldn't find an exact "fix", just things to try, so hope this helps.

Printer Dock 3 Print Problems

Unfortunately you may have to force feed the paper through as the printer is trying to pull it, it works but you have to stop pushing once it takes the paper!

How do we get the old toner cart out in order to replace it?

Check that the Paper light is not lit (from a paper error). Clear this error first by removing any paper jams, refilling the paper tray or other needed step followed by pressing the Print button.

To remove the color cartridge, open the cartridge door on the side of the unit. Push up on the green level and slide the cartridge out.

Take the new cartridge, make sure that the ribbon has no slack in it. If there is slack, push in on the cartridge spool and rotate it clockwise. (Do not turn this more than you absolutely must to take up the slack. It could reduce your number of prints.) With the label up and the arrow facing the printer dock, push the new cartridge until it clicks into place. Then press the Print button to clear the error and resume printing.

You can get your manual from Kodak as a PDF or a web page: . Look for the line Printer Dock Series 3 .

I hope this helps.

if your using a printer dock make sure the ribbon is cleared or not torned., now try to unplug/replug the power cable of the printer dock 2x, then try to print! if its failed download the latest firmware of the printer dock at, then you just need to follow the instruction on the website.

Computer can't find driver to communicate with printer

can you check if you have the CD that came along with the Kodak Printer? You would need that to install the printer on your computer. Once thats done, you should be able to print the pics
Hope this helps

Printer dock does not pick up paper.

I cleaned the wheel as a previous user had advised - I also pushed up the metal catch that sits under the printer and lifts the paper cartridge and it started to print. My replacement printer however didn't respond to this, however at least I have one that works.

For how long it will continue to do so is another question...!

Only half of picture is printing

I have the same problem where only the bottom half of my photo prints. It worked fine for a long time. I even tried flashing the printer up to the 2.11 firmware version from 1.90 - still nothing. Changed paper and cartridge. NOTHING. Tried attaching it to both my PC & MAC and even print stand alone picture from camera and a SD memory card on the side. NOTHING.

I think the problem is with Kodak... My trouble started when I decided to move my Dock Printer from PC over to MAC. The new drivers have you flash the Firmware. To do this, you first must hold down the Print and Red EYe Button (The button directly to the right of the big print button) with the power cord unplugged and then plug it in holding the buttons in for 2 seconds afterward.

This put the printer into Edit mode and allows the firmware to upgrade the printer. Once I did that, THAT'S when my problem started. I think these crappy printers can NOT self calibrate and they must be factory set. Most likely, they need to do it at the factory themselves and are all to happy to charge you to ship it off and do it for you.


What a POS.
