Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5300 All-In-One InkJet Printer
When ever I buy the combo ink cartridges, they only last for a week without me using them but one or two times. Also I can't use just a black cartridge without the color one. It won't let you do that.
Sounds to me like the cartridges are drying out quickly. Make sure you are using original cartridges and not the remanufactured ones or 3rd party ink cartridges. Also try to use your printer at least once every couple of days even if its just to print a document cause the longer you go without using it, the more of a chance that the cartridges will dry up.
Also one other thing, when the cartridge dries up you can try putting the bottom of the cartridge in a dish with warm water so the hole is covered with water, you can let it soak like this overnight then wipe off the bottom of the cartridge so its dry and then reinsert it back into the printer and see if that takes care of that issue, hope this helps.
Let me know if you need further help.

The ink that is given to you when you buy a new machine is not the same as if you went out and bought ink. The "starter" ink cartridges are not filled completely (that is a marketing gimmick to get you to buy more quickly). When you say "NEW" do you mean "new, never been used", or "new, just got it last week"?
If it's never been used, be sure that you have removed the protective tape from that cartridge. If it's been removed then the cartridge its self could have a problem or the machine could be at fault (not correctly reading the ink). You choices are to return it to where you got it, or buy a yellow cartridge and replace it.
If it was working and stopped after a very short time (a week or two) I would get a new yellow and try it.
For your sake I hope it's the protective tape was forgotten, it happens quite often.
