    Only about 1/3 of my picture is printing - have changed the cartridge, changed the paper, cleaned the rollers, blew the dust out with canned air - no luck - printing from PC, Kodak EasyShare Software.

You have answered questions regarding people who have photo printers. The questions asked are based on thermal transfer image printers, not bubble jet as your answers seem to be based on. FYI if people are having issues with their thermal printers, particularly with pictures printing, "Printing" partial pages, how in the world could you deduce that there is a driver issue? You've been more harmful than helpful. If for some reason there is "No" printing being done, then sure 25% of the problem could be drivers or firmware issues. However if it all of a sudden happens, then we have to think of it like a chain on a bicycle suddenly
breaking. Which in this case has a percentage of 50% or greater being the problem.
The lucky ones, (those w/ mechanical aptitude) can simply open the printer and make the screw adjustment(don't get me wrong it's time consuming and tedious) but the unlucky ones will find a cracked gear assembly which depending on the seriousness may be able to be repaired with "Model Glue". The recommended action is to follow your warranty, should
you not have one, guess what, these models are no longer manufactured for this exact reason. Which is why Kodak changed the color to Black on the new ones. So remember, if you buy it on sale... You now have full experience as to why the item was on sale in the first place, same goes with Manufacturer coupons as well!!!! If you want an item to last you don't buy it on sale, that old wives tale of 'Overstocked Item' is a gimmick
and remember to follow the item you purchased at full price. If all of a sudden the items price drops to half price, contact the manufacture to find out why, you may have a hidden problem, and if you contact them inside your warranty range you stand a good chance of receiving a voucher for a replacement model to keep you from getting to the point you are in currently. Good luck, and remember if it's on sale, you should reconsider how long you are going to long you need the product before you buy

It only prints half of the picture. How do you remedy this?


Hi

The printer driver is corrupted and needs to repair it by adding new printer with the same printer name and set it as default. Then delete the old printer icon. If prints the test page, then it solves your problem.

If still not working, uninstall and reinstall the printer driver which will refresh the printer driver itself. then set up the printer again.

Regards.

Only half of picture is printing


I have the same problem where only the bottom half of my photo prints. It worked fine for a long time. I even tried flashing the printer up to the 2.11 firmware version from 1.90 - still nothing. Changed paper and cartridge. NOTHING. Tried attaching it to both my PC & MAC and even print stand alone picture from camera and a SD memory card on the side. NOTHING.

I think the problem is with Kodak... My trouble started when I decided to move my Dock Printer from PC over to MAC. The new drivers have you flash the Firmware. To do this, you first must hold down the Print and Red EYe Button (The button directly to the right of the big print button) with the power cord unplugged and then plug it in holding the buttons in for 2 seconds afterward.

This put the printer into Edit mode and allows the firmware to upgrade the printer. Once I did that, THAT'S when my problem started. I think these crappy printers can NOT self calibrate and they must be factory set. Most likely, they need to do it at the factory themselves and are all to happy to charge you to ship it off and do it for you.

THANKS KODAK!

What a POS.
