    My Kodak Easy Share will not take the new color ink cartridge either. I cannot turn it off it just keeps blinking and saying to replace the color catridge. I called Kodak and they said the printer head is no good and will send me a new one I hope it works when I receive it. I also have to unplug my printer to get it to turn off.

The version of firmware you originally had on the printer when you changed the ink cartridge was bad. There is a known issue that when you put in a new ink cartridge when the printer is in the error state "COLOR INK EMPTY. REPLACE COLOR INK CARTRIDGE" the unit writes that value to the new ink cartridge so you will continue to have that error.

So to fix your problem Open the access door and Remove the ink cartridges. Then download and install the new Firmware. Heres the link.

Then sadly you have to go get another new ink tank and install it.

If you can get through to kodak you should request reimbursement of some sort like a free set of ink tanks.

I hope this helps

My one year old Kodak Easy share 5300 printer only print out plank paper there is no ink showing even i have new cartridges,


Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Normal 0 Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

New ink cartridge for Kodak Easy Share 5300 will not work


Yeah, Kodak should state that a PC with Windows XP or Mac with OSX is required for maintenance and upgrading and solving problems that were fixed after the release.

The first suggestion I have for you is find a friend, family member, or co-worker who has windows XP and the internet that can download the software and update the firmware on your printer. The printer may have even wrote a empty value on the new intank making it now worthless, requiring a new ink tank

Sadly there was a line of the 5300 printers that were released with a firmware bug that when the ink tank went empty and the user replaces the ink tank the printer still says the tank is empty.

A last ditch effort could be to remove the ink tanks and the printhead. Unplug the printer. wait like 5 mins. Then plug the printer back it. it will ask for a printhead. install the printhead. close the door. it will then ask for ink tanks. open the door and install the ink tanks and see if it will take them.

I feel bad for people in your situation who were led to believe the product was flawless out of the box and no PC was or will ever be needed.
