  1. Open up the cartridge to reach the ink chamber within. For color and photo cartridges, just remove the lid with a sharp knife (insert it where the black and colored plastic meet) to find the three fill holes. On black cartridges, make a hole with a heated pin or drill on top of the cartridge where the letter "K" is.
  2. Step 2 Check the chambers in a color/photo cartridge to determine which color ink is in which chamber. Insert a different toothpick or pin into each chamber to draw out yellow, cyan or magenta ink.
  3. Step 3 Fill a plastic syringe bottle with enough ink in the color you are refilling. A black ink cartridge should need 10 to 15 milliliters. A color/photo cartridge takes 5 milliliters of each color.
  4. Step 4 Insert the syringe needle into the cartridge, sending the tip down to the bottom. The chamber contains a sponge, so you will need a small bit of force to push it in.
  5. Step 5 Inject the ink into the cartridge. Unlike other brands of cartridges, you want to saturate the sponge with ink in a Kodak cartridge. Depress the syringe plunger slowly until you can see the ink begin to surface on top of the sponge.
  6. Step 6 Wash all ink residue out of the syringe after you've refilled one shade of ink. If you intend to refill another color immediately, dry the syringe out first.
  7. Step 7 Replace the lid on a color/photo cartridge. Apply a strip of tape to the spot where you first removed the lid to secure it. You don't need to seal a hole you drilled in a black cartridge.
  8. Step 8 Leave the cartridge standing in a secure spot overnight. This helps the ink settle within the cartridge for even printing once the cartridge is back in the printer.

I have a kodak printer esp5250 i have cleened the printer head and changed the printer head still the black ink still not comming though can some one help me thanks ian


If you changed the head not much else to do but change out control board. Did you check your software to make sure its not like I do sometimes telling it to only print in blue. You may need a new printer. Reinstall the software before you do anything else. Windows does have a problem of losing printer data. Cant explain but tech guy has told me numerous cases of it.

I've changed my ink and now the printer wont print. It say's black ink cartridge needs changing, but I already changed it so I click ok and press start. then it goes back to saying the same thing. Tried...


Ink level data is stored in a chip of the cartridge. Once the cartridge is empty, ink low message will appear eventhough you refill the cartridge. You need to deactivate ink level detection function to continue printing in case of usage of refill ink .

Open this link to Kodak's 5300 help page. Halfway down of the left is the "chat online" link. Open the link and tell them your problem. I have found that they are more than willing to help you. Give it a try. Here's your link: http://www.kodak.com/global/en/service/products/ekn033540.jhtml?p-q-path=9104

KODAK


No need of refilling it , call Kodak and tell them u have bought a new pack of ink cartridges and its not detected. Will ask you for serial numbers. Provide the one written on your old ink cartridges.

You'll get inkk cartridges free of charge.

I have replaced my ink cartridges numerous times and they are still full. It keeps telling me the ink cartridge needs replacing. It won't print and the red light keeps blinking. I have disconnected the usb and the power. I have only had this printer for about a year. It won't scan or print. Its a Kodak Easyshare 5300. The HomeCenter AiO is disconnected so how do I contact anyone from Kodak?

Printer cartridge for Kodak 5100 in India


Hello akpunj, 

So far, there are no other ink cartridges that might be compatible with the Kodak printers, and even if you refilled the ink cartridge, it wouldn't help because of the smart chip they have.

Honestly, I think your best shot is to find somewhere else where kodak is selling this printers and where it will be cheaper for you to have them sent in.

I need to change out the print head on my 5300 Kodak all in one printer


Hello: I have bought quite a few new ink cartridges thinking this was the problem of why my pictures were coming out so distorted. The Kodak 5100 that I purchased is not that old. So I just received a new ink head in the mail today and need to replace the old one (if that's the problem). Please tell me how to install it? Thank you! Janet
