Re: trying to print off photo's

Sometimes you need to run a printer through multiple (manymanymany) cleanings and complete maintenence cycles for it to work. You may get rid of lines in one color then work on another color and the lines will return to the first again. Don't let your printer stay idle for long periods. The same with alignment cycles sometimes.

On my mfc 260C the black ink print keeps fading to nil but is ok each time for about 20 pages after pressing the ink management button. No problem ever with colour print.

You may need to run the cleaning fuction on your printer to clean the black print heads.

Every month (once a month), you need to clean your print heads to prevent your heads from clotting.

You are now seeing the symptoms of what happens when you do not constantly maintain your cleanliness of your print heads.

If that does not work, try buying a new black cartrige to see if the original black cartrige is defective.

If the above does not work, you may have a failing carrage and may need replacing

But do all of above first and get back to me with what happend during your diagnosis of your issues.

We have had our Kodak Easyshare 5300 for about two years and I don't feel it has ever worked right. The photo print quality is poor, even though we've replaced the print head, put in countless new ink...

First thing to do is to try updating the firmware of the printer, just make sure that your printer is idle and has no error before proceeding, you can get the update at if you still have the same issue after that try deep cleaning the printhead 2x

Lines through photos

you'll have to clean the printer head. It's possible that your driver can do it automatically. It happens after a long time whitout using the printer. The ink can become dry and solid.

Horizontal lines through my printed photos

Are you sure your ink is not on the verge of finishing? Try changing the colour ink and print again. Sometimes I take the cartridge out, shake the ink down just in the same flashing motion as I do my pen, then replace it. You may try that.

Kodak 5300 Series not a year old

try to do this first, try first to upgrade the firmware of your printer, by clicking help in your kodak AIO Home Center, then under General Links, click on maintenance, then under maintenance, click on firmware upgrade.

after the upgrade is complete, try to remove and then reseat both the ink cartridges. then calibrate your printer. and then clean the printhead deep clean. then print a demo page to see if there is any improvement in your printout.

but if your still experiencing the same problem
you can call to Technical Support of kodak 1-800-421-6699 7am to 12am ET

hope this will help

Canon i550 has has rainbow line in output

Even though you say you have ink, the "rainbow" line is usually an ink problem. Try doing a head clean process.

Right-mouse click on the printer and bring up "Properties". There should be a 'Maintenance" tab and one or more cleaning options and/or nozzle checks.

Lexmark Z517 wont print black ink

I have a z600 that i use. If not used for about a month the ink does clog the print nozzles and eventually ink cartridge does dry out. To avoid this even if i dont have to print anything I run a diagnostics test that prints out a nozzle aligment test every two weeks.The great thing about this is that it uses very little ink.You can find this test in your software that was provided by Lexmark. This will keep your nozzles cleaned and you will notice this helps extend the life of your cartridge.

One of the best possible solution that we can suggest is to run a cleaning cycle for three times. Just to make sure that cleaning is effective please try the step below:

1. Using your computer go to printer utility.
2. Click on Maintenance then select Head Cleaning. Head cleaning usually took 1 minute.
3. Once the Head Cleaning is done Print a nozzle pattern to check whether the head cleaning is effective or not.

Repeat those steps for 3 times. If the nozzle pattern after 3 cleaning cycles still bad. Reseat ink cartridge if possible replace the ink cartridges.

After all those steps and issue still present printer needs to be in service.
