Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5100 All-In-One Printer

2 Answers

The Kodak Easyshare is a piece of ----.

The printer thinks it's out of ink, although a new color cartridge was just installed. Also it thinks, or the computer does, that the printer is not on. I've had this machine for a very little time; sometimes it won't come back on when it's turned off, sometimes it chops the pictures and has to be recalibrated, now this. I will never buy another Kodak product; they're clearly losing their touch for dependability.

    The printer said replace color ink cartridge. So I put a brand new one in and it still says to "Replace color ink cartridge" I cannot continue to purchase new ink cartridges until I get a "good one" what is up with this printer?

Get a shotgun and shoot the printer right where the check color ink light is blinking. But don't miss..........you only get one chance at this.

We had the same problem then I took the ink back out and if you look at the diagram on the printer it shows after you put the ink back in you have to push firmly on the gray tab under the new ink cartridge and eveything went back to normal hope it works for ya

Ink Installation Problem


Ok trust this solution. Go to www.kodak.com/go/5300downloads and try to install the latest firmware. If the firmware does not work, call kodak AiO Tech Support and go through the troubleshooting steps with them. The solution is usually another cartridge or a new printhead. Either way though, the firmware will update the printer so this won't happen after this first fix.

Well, here is the proper way of fixing or troubleshooting that paper jam error in your printer

Open the printer access door and remove both of the ink cartridge, then remove also the printhead, after that close the printer access door, without those parts. Then it will show a message in the printer screen, "Printhead is missing or has come loose" or "Printhead Not Detected" Install the printhead, just the printhead without the ink cartridges. After that close the printer access door. Then it will show you a message"Ink cartridges is not installed,install ink cartridges". then open again the printer access door, then install the black ink cartridge without the color ink cartridge. then close the printer access door, then message must be " Color ink cartridge is not installed, install color ink cartridge" then install the color ink cartridge." the message must be,"New printhead is detected calibration require, load paper and press start"

Thats the way of overiding the paper jam error message of your kodak all in one printer
hope this will help you guys

New ink cartridge for Kodak Easy Share 5300 will not work


The version of firmware you originally had on the printer when you changed the ink cartridge was bad. There is a known issue that when you put in a new ink cartridge when the printer is in the error state "COLOR INK EMPTY. REPLACE COLOR INK CARTRIDGE" the unit writes that value to the new ink cartridge so you will continue to have that error.

So to fix your problem Open the access door and Remove the ink cartridges. Then download and install the new Firmware. Heres the link.

Kodak AiO 5300 Firmware

Then sadly you have to go get another new ink tank and install it.

If you can get through to kodak you should request reimbursement of some sort like a free set of ink tanks.

I hope this helps
