SOURCE: kodak 5300 aio printer won't print black

My 5300 printer is only 15 month old and has developed a fault, it will not print in Black. The photo side 6x4 is great but on the A4 side the text is grey and the photos discoloured. I have gone through cleaning the heads both basic and deep, no joy, have recalibrated still no good, any solutions.

Thanks
Dave

SOURCE: kodak 5300 first said error 3802 now says print head missing or loose

I got the same Problem as listed above. This is the way how I was able to solve it:

  • Remove the color and black ink cartridges and the printhead. (the 5300 Printhead can be removed by pressing a button on top of the carriage and a slight pull --> for better instructions use this official Kodak PDF)
  • Try to clean the printhead and the carriage with a slighty wet cloth from ink. CAUTION!: better not touch the green electronic chip! Be carefull while cleaning.
  • Reinstall the printhead and the ink cartridges.
  • If the printer detects a 'new' printhead just do a calibration and your are done. If not try to print a test page.

Hope this solves the Problem. Best wishes

When I print pictures on my Kodak 5300 printer there are lines all through them. I have cleaned the print head two times, one after another and the lines are still there. What will remove the lines?


If they are white lines keep trying to clean the print head. If they are black lines you need to physically clean the bottom of the print heads with a damp cloth.

My Kodak easy share 5300 won't print black. I have clean the head and still have the problem.


Clean the print head then print a demo sheet.

  1. Verify that inkjet paper is loaded in the paper trays.
  2. On your desktop, start the KODAK All-in-One Home Center, then select the Help [?] icon.
  3. From the Help menu, select Maintenance, then select Print head Cleaning. The On/Off light flashes green during the cleaning procedure.
  4. When the On/Off light glows a steady green, press Photo and Copy simultaneously to print a demo sheet.
If the Demo print is bad- IE: no black, blurry print etc., then you may need to replace the print head:

Everything i print has lines in it and the color is horrible..I put new cartridges in and aligned,calibraited it.still having same problems. it is a 5300 kodak all in one..


With the Kodak 5300 the print heads are separate from the ink tanks and when you have printing issues where you have lines or the quality is poor you need to clean the print heads or in worse case scenario you would have to replace the heads.
Here are the steps to clean the heads:

To clean the Printhead from the control panel on the printer:
  1. Press the Menu button to display the Main Menu.
  2. Press the down arrow until Clean Printhead is displayed, then press OK.
    • For a basic clean, make sure Basic Clean is selected, then press OK.
    • For a deep clean, press the down arrow until Deep Clean is selected, then press OK.
To clean the Printhead from the KODAK All-in-One Home Center Software on your computer:
  1. Start the home center software.
  2. If the Help toolbar is not open, click the Help (?) icon in the upper-right corner of the window.
  3. From the Help toolbar, select Maintenance.
  4. Click Printhead Cleaning, and wait for the printer to complete the cleaning.
