IT GIVING ME AN ERROR CODE 5100 AND WILLNOT LET ME DO ANYTHING


Hello,

This is a generic error for a problem with the print carriage. Unplug for 30 seconds then replug, clean the cartridge's contacts, check and make sure the encoder strip is not out of place behind the carriage. Do a full cleaning of the print head manually:

(1) Open the printer
(2) Remove the ink cartridges from the print head.
(3) Use cotton swabs dipped in hot water to thoroughly clean the print head.
(4) Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab.
(5) Once finished, allow to dry and replace the cartridges
(6) Try to print something now

If none of that works, most likely you need a new print head

Rate my answer then, please

When printing i get a blanc document in between my printed documents


Hello

If you don't use the printer often (at least once a month) you probably have cartridges drying up on you. If by chance you have an epson or canon, the print head is inside the printer, so regardless of how many new cartridges you put in there, you will encounter the same problem.

If you are using a generic or third party ink, it may be too dense or of low quality clogging your print head.

You can try to run a bunch of print head cleanings. (your manual will tell you how) If by about 8 you are not seeing any improvement start with a new printer. Do a print head cleaning once a month ALWAYS as a preventative measure. This will ensure you get a long life out of your printer, and a top quality print from your cartridges.

HP 1220 C--ran out of yellow. Put in new cartridge. In fact tried two sets of new color and black 78 and 45 cartridges. Test prints look fine. But when I print an 8x10 photo--have tried eight or...


Hi! The problem will surely be on the printer head. It may have reached it's break point that when it performs a larger print outs it fails on the half. You can replace the head itself but I strongly suggest that you purchase a new one for optimum performance. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

I replaced the printhead back in january, but did not use the printer. it has been packed up until now. i replaced the ink cartridges and put in the new print head. but cannot see the text or anything...


It is not clear which print head you changed. some time the printer, if it has 2 different print head, for black and color, you may have to try changing the black print head.
But before doing all that , make sure that the ink cartridges are full.
print an alignment page and then try to make a standalone copy.

clean the ink cartridge with lint free cloth. Also check the preview of the text before printing.

You may also try to do a complete uninstall and then reinstall of the printer driver.

Printer does not print in color but only prints in


Run a "print-head-cleaning-cycle" -- the ink inside the cartridges is not getting through the ink-jets, and is not reaching the paper.

Either that, or the electronics inside the ink-jets are malfunctioning, i.e., not telling the ink-jets to shoot the ink out.

Printer will print pictures, but won't print documents.


Sometimes this happens because the ink dries in the print head. If multiple cleaning doesn't improve it you can try cleaning the print head itself with alcohol or an electronic spay can type cleaner. This should fix the problem for you. Also resetting the cartridges in the slots sometimes improves the ink flow.

One of the 3 colors will not print


This problem may be due to blocked nozzles, faulty cartridges or a faulty print head or main board. The first thing to do is eliminate the cartridges. Do a proper cartridge change on both printers, but swap the yellow and cyan (blue) cartridges between printers rather than fit new ones. If either (or both) of the missing colours now appear, you know the problem is the cartridges; replace it (or them) with new ones.

For example, take printer A, with yellow missing. Do a cartridge change procedure on printer A, but instead of fitting a new yellow cartridge, put in the yellow cartridge from printer B (since you know this yellow cartridge works). If yellow now prints in printer A, you know the cartridge you took out is faulty - put a new yellow in printer B, and throw away the cartridge you removed from printer A. Repeat this process for printer B with the Cyan cartridge.

For one or both printers where the above does not solve the problem, then you can try soaking the print heads for 24 hours (or more), as follows. Turn the printer on, and as soon as the print head moves pull the power cord out of the back, or turn the printer off at the mains. You may now carefully move the print head by hand over to the left hand side out of the way. Look inside the print head parking area on the right and you will see a small rubber cup that comes up to cover the print nozzles when the head is parked (to stop it drying out). Use a syringe or dropper to fill this cup with head cleaning fluid or distilled water. DO NOT USE TAP WATER. Carefully push the print head across fully into its parking position on the right, so that the cup full of fluid comes up over the print head. Leave this for at least 24 hours, then try a head clean or two. If the missing colours now start to appear, try another clean or two. If still not perfect, leave for 24 hours and try again. If still nothing, report back.

Kodak 5100 black will not print


In the UK call 0870 2430270

Tell them, because they will ask you to:

You have removed and reseated Black Cartridge

Carried Out Printhead Cleaning

Carried Out Calibration Test, and Black is missing

Did a Test Print (Press Photo & Copy together) and NO BLACK

and they will send a New Print Cradle overnight.

I also complained about wasting ink on multiple tests and got a new pack of ink as well.

Kodak 5100 no black printing, light on colors


Had the same issue... No black ink. Called the # from "Solution #1" guest, 18004216699. Had to patiently go through all the basic trouble shooting stuff like calibration, print head clean, demo print, etc. Once I went through that, they issued me a new print head for free, no shipping charges or anything. Just did this today, but they say I should have the print head in 3 days.

For once, service worked like it should!
