ESP5 printer not printing photo's on glossy paper

I have a Kodak ESP5 printer and IMAC running OS 10.5. I've just downloaded and installed the latest Kodak driver and s/w too.

When I print a colour photo on glossy paper, the image comes out almost like a negative, ie the black is white and vice versa. However, if I turn the exct same piece of paper around and print on the non glossy side, the colours appear perfect. Confused.....VERY

Wet smudgy lines on printing 6x4" photos, on glossy kodak photo paper. Ok bon plain paper


Before you hit the [Print] button, click on the [Properties] button. Then you have to find the setting where you select various types of paper. Select Glossy Photopaper and see if that helps.

Printer paper is jammed. Is there a release?


is there a... what? you didnt provide additional information, and you left the question unfinished. is there a way to remove the paper? is there a solution? yes. the paper can be removed. but i dont have enough information.

Product summary The good: Improved photo quality over previous model; attractive design; large 3-inch LCD screen; easy-to-use Home Center software.
The bad: Poor quality build with several mechanical errors; average print speed; graphics quality still lacks definition.
The bottom line: The Kodak ESP5 is an attractive full color all-in-one printer, scanner, and copier, and casual photo enthusiasts will be happy with the watered-down editing software, but hard-core users should look elsewhere for a multifunction printer. The ESP5 is too expensive and suffers from too many mechanical deficiencies for us to give it our CNET stamp of approval.


you will continue to have these paper jams.

It will print colors fine on standard paper, but will not print on any type of photo paper.


I don't understand the comment that your canon will not print on any type of photo paper. I own the same printer. I have found that the canon i9900 does not print well at all on generic photo papers, it does poorly on Kodak photo papers, good on HP and excellent on Epson. Are you selecting Preferences/media type, then photo paper, paper pro, paper glossy or matte. What version is your driver. I updated mine last year and it did not work, I still use the original from the install disk, which I have.

When printing photos on glossy Kodak paper the error message " paper jam reload" appears.


Some printers are not able to or having difficulty feeding glossy photo papers at 230 gsm and above, try using photo papers below 230 gsm.

Ink super-saturates on glossy photo paper


Is it the fact that it super saturates, or is the paper wrong for the machine, and it is not soaking in?

Kodak 5300 aio printer won't print black


It is the print head. Cleaning the heads does not do any good, either does replacing the ink. What you'll need to do is contact Kodak's customer service line and they can replace it for you free of charge. On this site everyone seems to be saying it is consistently the black that stops, however, based on what Kodak said it is possible that either the black or the color can have this same issue.

When you call in they will ask you for your service number, which is located on the bottom left corner of the machine, when you lift the lid (as if you were going to replace the ink). They didn't ask me when I bought it, how much I used it, etc.

They will set up a case for you - it takes 2-3 business days for the print head to arrive. They will provide you with an invoice number as well. Be sure to document it all just incase the head never comes, or if there are additional issues after you receive it (and/or if it doesn't solve the problem)

Kodak 5300 wont print on glossy side of photo paper


I just sussed this issue out. On the front of the printer tray there is another pull out tray, this opens up and must activate the photo printing for A4 because it stops the paper falling on the floor once printed (cos once printed on photo paper it may still be wet). As soon as I opened the tray (and it then opens again - you'll see what I mean) it printed A4 photo paper perfectly
Hope this helps others
