Question about Kodak EASYSHARE Plus Series 3 Thermal Photo Printer
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?
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
