SOURCE: not recognizing new ink cartridge

I had the same problem during setup. I tried the sharp rapping and four-letter words solution, but that didn't work for me. I called customer service and after a looooooong hold (apparently everyone in the universe is having problems), I talked to someone who transferred me to the "print head" part of tech support. During the conversation I had so much trouble understanding the guy that I said I wanted to take him off speaker phone so I could hear him better, and I accidentally cut off the call. Wouldn't it be nice if call center people were actually understandable in English.

Nevertheless, he did give me a couple of instructions before I lost the call, and after I did them things worked right. Here is what he said to do:

1. Remove the black and color cartridges.

2. Place finger in upper left hand corner of print head case and gently slide it down. That is when I lost the call, but as I did that the print head case easily slipped out.

I reinstalled it, put the cartridges back in, closed the printer and, voila, the calibration sequence started.

The tech guy took my number "in case we got disconnected," so he could call me back, but so far he didn't call back. Nevertheless, my printer's working. Next step is to hook it up to my computer.

Hope this helps someone.

SOURCE: Kodak EasyShare 5100 won't print

Hi FixYa team, my Kodak printer's "Check color ink" red light was flashing so I just put in a new color ink cartridge (even though I am only printing black and white). I restarted the machine to try and print some address labels and it acts like it is printing but the paper comes out blank yet I can print pictures. I tried to print and email and it won't do that either.
Thanks.

SOURCE: installed new ink cartridge/ still saying low color

try calling 1 800 421 6699 for US.
solution
try to remove inks, then reseat it..
then remove printhead, by pushing the latch on the upper right, then put it back in. be sure that it will snap. close the door with no inks. try to look at the message, if it has the same error, put the inks on it and close the door again.. then if you still have the error message, call the hotline no. and I'm Afraid that you need a Printhead replacement or defective ink issue...
they will replace it for free..

SOURCE: check color ink light blinking

You probably need to clean the jets. On your computer you should have an icon for your printer type? Lexmark, Epson, etc? Well doubleclick it and it should have options for troubleshooting or maintenance. Go there and follow the instructions for cleaning and aligning the printer. Until you do that most printers won't reset to show the real levels anyway. Hope this helps. Let me know.

SOURCE: Won't recognize color ink cartridge

This is a common problem with Kodak 5000 series and ESP series printers.
Check the silver contacts on the ink cartridges for small scratches in the center. The scratches indicate that the ink cartridges have made contact with the appropriate connections in the printer. If no marks are visible, the cartridge was not seated properly. If the contacts look ok, you'll have to call Kodak again. It's highly likely that the recertified printer you received was returned for the same problem. If you point out the fact that you are experiencing the same problem for the second time, you may wind up with an upgrade to an ESP5. Don't accept another printhead replacement as thiat will not resolve the problem.

Put in new ink cartridge -- won't print


Try lifting up the cover. If the ink level is low in a print cartridge, the Print Cartridge Status light stops flashing. If the problem is not related
to low ink, the light continues to flash after the cover is opened. It might be that the new cartridge is defective. Check the connections and see if there isn't anything keeping it from making contact.

C3150 print cartridge


  • Remove the cartridges.
  • Turn off the printer.
  • If the cartridges are leaking, put the print head on some tissue, so it can extract the excess ink. With a dry cloth, clean your scanner. Look inside the printer. If there is ink in there too, clean it. Use a lot of tissue or toilet paper. Might put some gloves on too.
  • When you make sure that the cartridges are not leaking anymore, gently wipe the electric contacts on them, and clean the ones on the cartridge carrier.
  • Turn the printer on.
  • Try printing.
  • If the cartridge light keeps flashing:
  1. If a computer message indicates a specific cartridge, that is the problem cartridge.
  2. If there is no computer message, look at the Start Copy lights - if the Black Start Copy light is blinking, the cartridge on the right is the problem cartridge.
  3. If the Color Start Copy light is blinking, the cartridge on the left is the problem cartridge.
If you find out which cartridge is the problem, you will need to replace it.
Unfortunately, the ink that has leaked inside, might have damaged your printer.

Ink cartridge light keeps blinking


you need to print only in black if that is all the ink you have, and also you need to remove the color cartridge as it still registers in the printer as able to be used, although it is empty or near so. Did you remove the tape over the print head fron the new ink cartridge? Do a print head alignment, or use the toolbox icon to tell the printer that you just replaced the cartridge. Some HP models chip the ink cartridges so even a refill wont register as a full tank and the printer wont print. chip needs to be reset (difficult) or just replaced with a new cartridge.
