Re: Stoopid Printer #*@!

Slow printing can be a result of excessive TMP files and a fragmented HDD. I would do a search for *.tmp;*.chk files, del all you find, goto IE, Tools, Internet Options, del cookies, files, and history, set history to 1 day, under settings, locateed next to Files, set diskspace to 10 MB, exit out, reboot, disable any screen saver you have, then do a full defragmentation of the hard drive. THis will take some time, best to set it to run overnight.
Once finished, do a fresh reboot, then try to print again.

Kodak 5300 printer problem

I would suggest the following :

1) Remove the Kodak printer and all its software.
2) Disconnect the USB cable from the computer.
3) Reinstall the entire software applications for the printer just as if you were installing it for the first time.
4) When asked to connect the printer .. Use a different USB port .. even if you have to switch something out .. but do this step irregardless.

Now what I want to know is ..
1) Can you print from the computer?
2) Black still "gone" ?

Let me know

Dissapearing yellow

I run about 100+ canon printers from s800 up to the new ip4500.
I have met and solved almost every problem I find described on the web. Your problem with the disappearing yellow ink can be only one thing. The ink cartridge has not been sealed after you injected the ink. If there is even the smallest avenue for air to get into the cartridge it will allow the ink to flow very rapidly back out of the cartridge and into the waste ink pads in the bottom of the printer. You won't be able to see a puddle of ink under the printer until much later when you have done many cleanings or installed many leaky cartridges.
