After printing business cards, had to remove some fragments of the border around the cards that had jamed in the mechanism. Now get smeared or no print. Full ink cartridges. Can't figure out how to open machine to clear possible jam around print heads. Panel at back doesnt give full access. How do I open it up further? Is it possible or do I have to junk it?

Re: Kodak 5100 wont print after paper jam
If you cant get the jam cleared from the back or the top access door you could exchange it from where you got it. Or try and open it up and fix it yourself but that will void the waranty and you wont be able to exchange it. Or you could check the yellow pages for a PC/printer repair shop. But I mostly recomend trying to exchange it from where you bought it.

Were you able to remove all of the original jammed business cards? where the leading edge of the "Fanfold" prints occurs, you will probably find something blocking the paper path. HP printers usually have a limit on the paper weight that the printer can handle when doing duplex (2 sided) printing. Check this against the weight of the cards you are printing.
if its an inkjet printer then please mark that the catridges are able to free scroll on the carraige and if they fail then remove the catridges take a clean piece of cotton clean the foil which connects the catridge to the circuit , this worked for my HP 3940,
THIS IS TRUE OF ANY TYPE OF PAPER, MOST MANUFACTURE RECOMMAND THERE OWN BRAND OF PAPER FOR SPECAIL USES OF THERE MACHINE AND IF YOU USE A GENERIC TYPE OF PAPER YOU WILL HAVE THIS PROBLEM, PAPER WILL NOT PICKUP, PAPER MAY JAM ALOT, PAPER PRINT QUILITY MAYBE BE POOR, INK MAY MEER, TOMERS ARE SOME OF THE PROBLEM TO ALONG WITH PAPER ISSUES ALSO, YOU MAY HAVE TO USE A THICKER OR THINNER VELLLUM PAPER, CALL A REPOGRAPHIC STORE , ONE DO BLUE PRINT PRINTING, MAP COPIERS, ASK AND SEE IF THEY HAVE ANY OTHER IDEAS
replace the ink cartridges first... could be just a cartridge issue... do a print head cleaning... refer to your user's manual for step by step instructions on how to do a head cleaning on your printer.
