Ink won't adhere to photo paper

Do I need to use a special type of photo paper to print photos? I tried printing onto Kodak Xtralife photo paper, and the ink does not adhere to the paper.

I'm trying to print double-sided on photo paper but the only double-sided paper option is double-sided plain paper and the quality is not good on this setting. How can I select double-sided photo paper?


I have NEVER seen "double-sided photo paper"; photo paper is specially coated to accept ink on ONE SIDE ONLY, so what you want to do is not possible. You can print photos on both sides of PLAIN paper, but you probably won't like the results.

The simple fact is that double-sided photo paper simply doesn't exist, unless it is NEW in the market and hasn't reached my neighborhood yet. You can't print on BOTH sides of photo paper because the paper is ONLY designed to take ink on ONE side.

Best of luck to you; hope this information helps you.

You need to change your print setting preferences to print on photo paper and choose the correct type before trying to print pictures. While in the picture you want to print on your pc screen, go to file and then print and choose preferences. Then change the paper type to the type of photo paper you are using (i.e. glossy, matte finish ect.) and hit "ok". Then trying printing your picture and see if this solves your problem.

Printer dock does not pick up paper.


Try to clean the rubber rollers with lint free cloth. Make sure you are using Kodak Xtralife paper. At the back of the paper it should say "Xtralife".

Can print paper but photos have green tint


If you refilled the ink cartridges, this can happen. Kodak uses pigment based inks, the others use dye based inks. Also, make sure your printer is set for normal photo printing, rather than special effects.

try using a different paper or media, and try printing your photo in between with a different kind of images.

Photo paper


1. Never put XtraLife paper from a printer dock in any inkjet printer. This paper is not made for inkjets. The ink will simply spill all over the place.
2. You can use any paper you wish that is inkjet paper but you must set the appropriate settings through the print manager if the paper is anything but Kodak inkjet photo paper. The 5100, 5300, and 5500 all recognize the backprint on the Kodak paper and automatically optimize the settings. Other brands of paper are not optimized in this fashion and therefore must be done manually through the print manager or software.
