  1. Lift the printer access door, then remove the ink cartridges from the printhead.
  2. Verify that the label on the ink cartridges is intact, and the cartridges are not damaged.
  3. Verify that only KODAK branded ink cartridges are installed.
  4. Insert the ink cartridges into the printhead, then press down firmly until you hear them click into position.
  5. Close the printer access door, then make the same print.
If issue still continues:
  1. Verify that inkjet paper is loaded in the paper tray.
  2. Press and hold Cancel + Copy/Resume simultaneously until the On/Off light flashes green. The On/Off light continues to flash during the cleaning procedure.
  3. When the On/Off light glows a steady green, press and hold Scan + Copy/Resume simultaneously until the On/Off light flashes, then wait for the demo sheet to print.
If issue still continues:

the printhead for your printer is in need of replacement. Contact Kodak

Best of Luck

I have a Gestetner DSc38u and when I print colour I get a 'red'/'pink' line about an inch from the top of each page. Any suggestions?


If the line is only red or pink, it is most likely caused by the magenta PCU. Replace this PCU and your problem will go away.

Occasionally the magenta developer unit can cause a red or pink line, but the problem is more than likely from your magenta PCU. The PCU is easy to replace, and instructions will come in the box if you order an OEM replacement unit.

5100 HP Desktop printer--magenta ink comes out pink not red (right out of sealed package!)


magenta is just a fancy name for pink.... its usually a darker shade of pink not overly dark but not a bright pink that most associate with the color.
most hp printers use the ckmy color format as opposed to the rgb that most are used to. check your other ink levels to ensure that they are at least half full and when you print out a doc or pic requiring red, the other inks will assist in creating the proper shade

New x5650 printer will not print all colors only red/pink tint.


Assuming there is ink in the color cartridges and that it's viable, then you need to clean the printhead. There should be documentation for doing this in the software that came with the printer.

Prints all yellow, with some blue and black, no brown


the problem is very simple the magenta ink the cartridge is over or the head is been blocked from where the magenta ink comes out,
because red colour requires ---yellow plus magenta(pink)----to make it red.and ----dark yellow plus magenta(pink) -------- for brown colour.
