Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5300 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I have 6 of the Kodak Easyshare 5300 printers and all of them have stopped printing black. They seem to print black a little when you are copying something but when you are just printing something The black does not work at all. Do you know how to fix this?
Print a self test diagnostic page to check the status of the black ink and print heads.
To print the self-test diagnostic page
• Control panel: Press (Configuration Page button), or press and hold the (Cancel button) for 3 seconds.
For models that support networks: Press (Configuration Page button).
If these are all showing OK then clean the printheads
To clean the printheads
If printed characters are incomplete, or dots or lines are missing from printouts, ink nozzles might be clogged and you might need to clean the printheads.
NOTE: Cleaning uses ink, so clean the printheads only when necessary.
The cleaning process takes up to 3.5 minutes. Some noise might be generated in the process.
• Control panel: Press and hold (Power button), press (Cancel button) two times, press (Resume button) one time, and release (Power button).
If this fails then replace the black cartridge and run a clean cycle again and then a self test diagnostic then try printing again.
