Kodak EasyShare 5100 series
Clean the print head then print a demo sheet.

  1. Verify that inkjet paper is loaded in the paper trays.
  2. On your desktop, start the KODAK All-in-One Home Center, then select the Help [?] icon.
  3. From the Help menu, select Maintenance, then select Print head Cleaning. The On/Off light flashes green during the cleaning procedure.
  4. When the On/Off light glows a steady green, press Photo and Copy simultaneously to print a demo sheet.
If the Demo print is bad- IE: no black, blurry print etc., then you may need to replace the print head:

I attempted to print but the ink is not working. I recently installed new ink cartridges and the color indicator shows that both color and b/w are full


Hi, the is a problem of dry ink on the cartridge. you must remove the cartridge and try cleaning with a soft cloth, preferably damp. after cleaning, you should see ink coming out the cartridge when you simply press/bring the cloth near the passage. Last option, immerse only the lower part in warm water for 2 mins.

Seems to be a common fault with Kodak EasyShare 5100/5300

Contact Kodak Support and go though the following tests:

Remove and re-seat Printer Cartridge(s) - Done

Clean Printhead - Done

Calibrate Printer - Test Sheet Not Complete!

Run Computer Colour Test - Done

They will then send you a new Print Head.

Prints only pictures and not text


Run the printer maintenance program and clean the printhead. If that doesn't fix the problem, contact Kodak support. If needed, they will exchange the printhead for a new one.

Our Kodak 5100 printer will not stop a red light flashing on ink


How often do you use the printer? I have the same problems with a Kodak AIO 5500. Go to the "Help Center" section of the Kodak.com website. This will lead you through troubleshooting and if the printhead is bad they should send you a new one under warranty. This is what I did.
