    Won't print black. Just bought a new cartridge still doesn't print out in black. Only 3 months old.
    please email me.

    My printer is only printing out e-mails. If I want to print a file or something from the Internet, I get either nothing, or faded graphics. My printer is about 1 year old, and it started doing this a couple of months ago.

    I have the same problem, black ink does not come out or comes out very lightly.

    Can't print black - Kodak claims calibration page proves black is printing, I don't agree. I can print all the grays I want - the calibration looks more gray than black to me.

My solution was to dump the Kodak printer, and reinstall a 4 year old HP printer collecting desk in my house. WORKS GREAT! I fiddled around with the Kodak printer head and wiped/cleaned the insides, and it worked for a couple days. Then it started having the same problems again (see above.)

Kodak 5300 printer: I just changed the black ink but it is printing as though there is no black ink. Ihave tries calabrating, cleaning, deep cleaning, etc. It says there is a full cartridge of ink.


From what i understand with the kyocera colour printers theres a menu option to print black as black opposed to a combination of the colours. I'm not too sure where it is, however it sounds like the kodak is very simular and is using the colours to create black instead of using the blank ink cartrage.

Not printing black


Hi

1. Make sure that you have removed the plastic cover from the cartridge nozzle .
2. check if your black ink cartridge is full - put the nuzzle on the tip of you finger if it leaves ink drop then it is full and should print ok , if it didn't leave ink on your finger then it is dry and you should buy new cartridge .

hope it helps

Kodak 5300 all in one printer


Have you checked the ink level?
And does this happen only when you are tying to print a B&W only? Or if you print a color picture, does it print any black in the pictures?
