    Yesterday the printer began malfunctioning. It prints all but the far right side of the photo. There appears to be a film along the used ink ribbon on the same area where it isn't printing. I installed a new ink cartridge but no help. Any suggestions

Always..did I say always, check for driver corruption when this happens. Remember that photo printers are just scanners turned upside down(just kidding, but it's not that far off). Also, the printer should be on it's own circuit(meaning NOT plugged into power strip same as pc or other devices, especially modems)

You have answered questions regarding people who have photo printers. The questions asked are based on thermal transfer image printers, not bubble jet as your answers seem to be based on. FYI if people are having issues with their thermal printers, particularly with pictures printing, "Printing" partial pages, how in the world could you deduce that there is a driver issue? You've been more harmful than helpful. If for some reason there is "No" printing being done, then sure 25% of the problem could be drivers or firmware issues. However if it all of a sudden happens, then we have to think of it like a chain on a bicycle suddenly
breaking. Which in this case has a percentage of 50% or greater being the problem.
The lucky ones, (those w/ mechanical aptitude) can simply open the printer and make the screw adjustment(don't get me wrong it's time consuming and tedious) but the unlucky ones will find a cracked gear assembly which depending on the seriousness may be able to be repaired with "Model Glue". The recommended action is to follow your warranty, should
you not have one, guess what, these models are no longer manufactured for this exact reason. Which is why Kodak changed the color to Black on the new ones. So remember, if you buy it on sale... You now have full experience as to why the item was on sale in the first place, same goes with Manufacturer coupons as well!!!! If you want an item to last you don't buy it on sale, that old wives tale of 'Overstocked Item' is a gimmick
and remember to follow the item you purchased at full price. If all of a sudden the items price drops to half price, contact the manufacture to find out why, you may have a hidden problem, and if you contact them inside your warranty range you stand a good chance of receiving a voucher for a replacement model to keep you from getting to the point you are in currently. Good luck, and remember if it's on sale, you should reconsider how long you are going to long you need the product before you buy

    I am currently in deliberations with Kodak to supply me with new replacement pressure arms will keep everyone posted!

  • onlyintheate Jul 18, 2008


    As you can see the broken 'Gear' is the culprit not allowing for full pressure to be applied across the bar. The good news is the bar is extremely easy to replace...

    The bad news is it's not easy to get to, nor for Kodak to easily send a replacement.

    As well as since the unit has been updated by newer units the replacement parts are off the shelf only. I have heard of people using products like JB weld to encase it but

    I think in knowing most epoxy's that eventually one will face a similar dilemma.

    I am contemplating a banded 'Retainer' but the space is limited. In this case the parts are all together, so there would be a possibility of 'Wrapping with a metal and applying a dab of solder to keep it from unwinding only, (which means many coils of wrap, from like \an old speaker) A small deisign change would have prevented this and made a wonderful machine, but as indicated it was probably done to save money, or future force purchases... Who knows.. I am still trying to get an answer from Kodak, and will continue doing so until Exhaustion.

    Keep you all posted! Onlyintheaters@yahoo.com

  • onlyintheate Jul 23, 2008

    No help from Kodak, Sorry.... They do not repair these, they just send a new one, if under warranty. I wrapped the gear in micro wire and soldered the ends together, works fine now. Good luck to everyone!

You got it right - the Kodak EasyShare 5300 All-in-One uses 10 series Kodak cartridges, and
since your box says 10B+10C, it has (2) 10-series cartridges in it - one 10-series Black (10B), and
one 10-series Color cartridge (the 10C).

The 10 Series Ink cartridges are compatible with:
EasyShare 5000 series (your All-in-One belongs here)
ESP 3/5/7/9
ESP 3200/5200/7200/9200 Series
ESP Office 4100/6100

Call a Kodak shop and ask what causes that problem and how to eliminate it. It's probably a setting you need to change.

New ink cartridges installed and sometimes prints with missing horizontal areas(blank lines about 1/8 inch thick 20 plus randome down the page. The next time printing may be fine. Color is washed out...


Replace the print heads for the coloured inks you replaced, run the align printer head diagnotic from the printer menu. This should correct the print problem.

We have a Kodak easyshare series 3 camera and dock and when printing it only prints the lower half of the picture.


SOLVED!!
eppelr is correct, the small white cam on the right hand side at the top (internally) cracks and this allows it to come loose on its shaft and stops it from pressing the thermal head down onto the ink film on one side. If like me you have the top of the range bluetooth model its worth buying an old basic model off ebay for a tenner and robbing the shaft out of that. The mechanics are more or less the same and the shaft itself is identical, Doubt you would be able to buy the shaft seperate from Kodak, Thanks eppelr, I now have two working plus 3's.

Not printing at all now.


If the size or resolution won't work right then it is usually a software issue and most probable fix is to install a new updated driver for your model and your operating system. Try googling your printer model for a driver(sample is Kodak X5300 driver) and you should find one free easily. Download and install the driver and this should fix it.

Contact Kodak! I had similar problem after a paper jam. I phoned three days ago and this morning, a new printhead arrived along with two new cartridges. Have installed the printhead and printer is printing beautifully! Thank you Kodak! Great customer service!
