    My Kodak Easy Share 5300 prints color great, but we can't get black to print at all. My ink levels are high. In fact we bought a new one just in case it was sensing the wrong levels, still nothing in black.

The first thing you should try is running a printhead cleaning using the kodak software or from the local user interface on the printer. from the printer press the [menu] button. press the down arrow untill Clean Printhead is highlighted. press the [OK] button. Select "Deap Clean" and press [OK]. If this does not work you can mannually clean it. You can search online for how to clean inkjet printheads. I use distilled or de-ionized water and a LINT-FREE cloth. Dont use paper towls or anthing that could leave lint behind and clogg the nozzels. when you wipe the printhead make sure you only wipe in the direction of the nozzels, with the grain. Do not use a circular motion. You want to wipe from the front to the back or back to front of the printhead. Not left to right. I hear windex works as well but i have never tried it. Do some research online and use you best judgment. If none of this works you may have to contact kodak and see about getting a new printhead, they dont sell them sepeartly.

Good luck!

Kodak Easy Share 5100 will not print after I changed black cartridge


Press copy and photo at the same time and print a demo sheet. Look at the eyes of the two kids in the picture, if they look like zombies, your printhead is clogged. try cleaning the printhead and print the demo again. If it's the same, you need a new printhead. Call Kodak.
