Hello, you can print a calibration sheet from the front panel of the printer. Hit menu on the panel of the printer and scroll down to calibration printer and hit ok. Then hit ok on print calibration page and it should proceed to print a calibration page. After it is done printing, it will tell you to scan the calibration sheet.

The calibration sheet it printed from the unit. you can print it on 4x6, letter, or A4 sized paper. Once its printer it goes on the scanner. On the controll panel on the front of the printer press the menu button. then scroll down to Calibrate printer. Select print calibration page. once its printed put it on the scanner (match up the blue arrow on the printed sheet to the yellow arrow on the scanner bed.) and press ok. the sheet willl be scanned and your printer will be calobrated.

My wife just bought a brand new Kodak ESP Office 2150 printer. After going through the setup instructions carefully, and installation process and tutorials, the printer will not print. After careful...


If the installtion was done with the printer connected then it can cause errors. as the printer driver software can have errors while being installed. So to reset remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and then connect the Printer ONLY WHEN PROMPTED, to be detected as a new hardware as it will be installed. Now check the printer properties to see the ink levels.
Activate head cleaning before a test is taken. Use the printed sheet to be placed on the scanner as it will calibrate and align. Now the printer is ready for use. If this wont help please do not tamper but seek WARRANTY SERVICE FROM YOUR DEALER.

What is the calibration sheet


A calibration sheet it what tells the printer how colors should actually look, and how they should print out. These should print out as you set your printer to calibrate itself. You place that sheet on the printer's glass (scanner).

Hope this helps. :)

Prints come out blue.


You may have a faulty printhead. I just purchased a new one and had a time with it. Awful color in picture. Kodak sent me a new printhead and new ink tanks. Now it works great. You may have printhead trouble also, contact Kodak for help.

Printer will only print in purple/pink,enstalled new colour cartridge configured as required,still no change. help thank you


Print out a calibration sheet, either from the menu, or press photo and cancel at the same time. Your calibration sheet is probably missing a color. You should have black, blue, yellow, and magenta(pink). If you're missing any of these colors, your printhead is clogged. Try doing a printhead cleaning. Print another calibration sheet, if the color is still missing, you need a new printhead. Call Kodak.

Poor color on home printed photos


hmm..no blue, eh? that means that one of your print head cartidge lines is clogged. Sounds like time for a new cartridge tray, which you can access through www.kodak.com

Hi-

If your product is still within the warranty period from KOdak then you can call them up for some step by step troubleshooting to help you with your problem and as well they can replace the printer if defective.

Try this first

Calibrate your printer, then print a demo sheet.
  1. If paper is in the photo paper tray, remove it.
  2. Load photo paper into the photo tray.
    1. Fan the paper to keep the sheets from sticking together. IMPORTANT: Do not overload the photo tray.
    2. Load a maximum of 20 sheets into the photo tray, with the Kodak logo facing up.
    3. Engage the photo tray by pushing it in until it stops. p289_0006aa.jpg
  3. Calibrate your printer.
    1. Press Menu.
    2. Select Calibrate Printer, then press Start.
    3. Wait for your printer to print the calibration sheet.
    4. Place the calibration sheet face down on the scanner glass.
      • For the 5300 AiO printer, place the sheet on the front right corner of the scanner glass.
      • For the 5500 AiO printer, place the sheet on the left rear corner of the scanner glass.
    5. Press Start.
    6. Wait until "Calibration complete. Remove calibration page from scanner glass. Press OK to continue." appears on the LCD display.
    7. Remove the calibration sheet from the scanner glass, then press OK.
  4. Print a demo sheet.
    1. Disengage the photo tray by sliding it towards you until it stops. When the photo tray is disengaged, the main tray is active.
    2. Select Print Demo Page, then press Start.
    3. Wait for the demo sheet to print.

Then call them if issue Persist at these numbers:

In the U.S. and Canada: 1-800-421-6699
In Australia and New Zealand: 1800 793 895

To calibrate the printer right click on the printer icon and open the status monitor once you open it there is 3 symbols on the top right of the box one looks like a hammer and wrench in an x configuration, next to that is an i for i for about and a ? for help. Click on the x which is Maintenance it will bring up a new box which has 2 options calibrate and printhead cleaning when you chose calibrate it will print a calibration sheet which you then need to put into the scanner portion and press the start button, these instructions will also come up on the screen when you go through the process.
