Owners manual for kodak 5300 printer

I just purchased this kodak 52300 printer and I have no instruction manual

for it and I do not know how to operate - I can't print an envelope because of;no instructions I do not know how to scan and copy a picture, etc.etc.

Is there a manual available with instructions on how to use the printer?

    I have spent an hour with some one in the troubltshooting department trying to get my new All-In-one Printer to print from my Quicken Program with no results. They have told me that they were going to work on the problem and would get back with me in a few days. It's coming up two weeks and I have heard nothing. Mean while my work is getting behind with out a printer. Any suggestions would be wonderful. My case number is 12243155 if that helps. I want to talk to someone who speaks english when someone does make the effort to get in touch with me. BKB

    I can't get it to print from my computer. I have called your suppport asking for a manual with no help received. I was told to get it online. I've been searching and clicked on ever thing I have seen and still cannot find out how to get a manual. It's a shame to sell someone something with no instructions as how to work it. I thought Kodak was a better company than this. I am 64 years old with little experience and I need a written manual to learn from. Thanks

    I can get the proper orientation to print the envelope as portrait (short side at top) but the type prints as in landscape. In other words the type does not rotate with the envelope page. The envelope is too long to be inserted in the tray with the long side up position in order to use the type orientation.

I am having problems with the colors being true when I print. I have already changed ink cartridges and they are three quarters full. I have cleaned the print head numerous times...basic and deep cleaned multiple times, I have also calibrated the printer according to directions twice. Nothing has helped. I have had this problem after printing multiple photos but cleaning the print head generally solves it and if it doesn't putting in new ink cartridges does. I don't know what else to try.. Help!

To the person with the collor issues, TAKE IT BACK AND TRADE IT FOR A NEW ONE?

This is the best printer I have EVER owned by far. Cheap ink, wonderful photo printing, and fast too. I have owned HP and Lexmark in the past, and I loved my lexmark, but my Kodak Easyshare 5300 makes the previous ones look weak and expensive.

PS? You can pretty much find a manual for everything except children online. Get a clue and LOOK before posting on sites like this for such a simple and trivial matter? Jeez...

When you click on calibrate, the printer prints a calibration sheet that is then lined up on the scanner.

Paper size can be changed from the printing preferences. You can do this by clicking "start" then open "printers and faxes", right click on the Kodak printer and selct printing preferences. On the General tab of the printing preferences there is an option there to change the paper size. Open the drop down menu and select the paper size you want.

Hope this helps.

I am assuming you made a typo as many of us do and the title is correct and this is a Kodak 5300 All-In-One printer please respond if it is not and I will search for the correct printer.

Your printer's manuals and software can be found here

There is a Manual in the Home Center Software under help there is a link "User Guide" or it can be downloaded from Kodak. Here is a link for the manual download.

Kodak.com 5300 support link

Once you click the link above look for the "User Guide" below that pick the language you want.

If you dont have Adobe Reader you will need that to view the file you can get it free from here

Adobe Reader

Kodak did not include printed manuals to save money and its better for the environment (less waist).

I hope you find what you need in the manual.

Good luck!

Owners manual for kodak 5300 printer


There is a Manual in the Home Center Software under help there is a link "User Guide" or it can be downloaded from Kodak. Here is a link for the manual download.

Kodak.com 5300 support link

Once you click the link above look for the "User Guide" below that pick the language you want.

If you dont have Adobe Reader you will need that to view the file you can get it free from here

Adobe Reader

Kodak did not include printed manuals to save money and its better for the environment (less waist).

I hope you find what you need in the manual.

Good luck!
