Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5300 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

My printer won't print from my computer. It is connected right and I ran a Calibration page and printed a demo sheet and all was fine. When I go to print the block that pops up for the printer shows 2 percent on the line and has cancelling on the top that has been there for hours.

I need to calibrate my hp deskjet 3845 but when I click the button to calibrate it says it's lost communication with the device


Hello

Calibration is one of the functions performed from the Printer Assistant icon on the desktop. If the Printer Assistant icon on the desktop has been deleted from the system, the same tasks can also be accomplished from the Printer Toolbox . The Printer Toolbox can be accessed through the Printer Folder or by right-clicking the Printer Icon on the Taskbar

Please follow these steps to calibrate your printer

Double-click the Printer Assistant icon on the desktop. The Printer Assistant menu will appear with a list of options

Select the Tools and Updates option or the Utilities option (depending on your driver version).

Printer Maintenance menu will appear.

Select the Calibrate Printer tab from the Printer Maintenance options

Click the Calibrate tab. The printer will print the first calibration page.

In the Cartridge alignment page, please inspect the straight colored lines in Sections A, B, C and D . Choose the straightest lines in each section to indicate the best cartridge alignment.

In the Page alignment area, please verify Section E . Then, select the bar and the arrow closest to the edge of the page without being cut off, to indicate the best page alignment.

In the Calibrate Device window, enter the selected alignment values in the Pen Alignment and in the Page Alignment fields and click the Continue tab

The second calibration page will be printed now. The page will contain two patterns: a square and a cross . The lines on the patterns should be horizontally and vertically aligned . Click the Done tab if the lines are correct or the Calibrate tab to repeat the calibration process

The first calibration page contains five sets of alignment patterns. The calibration will cover two areas of alignment. The Cartridge alignment is designed to obtain the best print quality and the Page alignment is designed to ensure that the print is aligned correctly on the page.



If the Printer Assistant and its files have been deleted from the system, the maintenance features in the Tools and Updates section of the Printer Assistant are also available in the Printer Toolbox .
Open the Printer Toolbox and perform the services by following the instructions below:

Right-click the Printer Icon on the Taskbar .

Click Open the Deskjet Toolbox option.

Select the Printing Service tab in the Printer Toolbox .

Choose the Calibrate the printer option.

NOTE:HP recommends to use HP plain paper when performing the cartridges calibration process.

NOTE:These printers could work with one or two print cartridges. HP recommends to perform the cartridge calibration process with the two cartridges installed in order to get the best print quality. Anyway, the printer can also be calibrated with one cartridge installed if the customer decides to work in that way.

We havev a hp psc 2310 all in one. when it prints there is a partial shadow print behind the text. Whart should we do


from the printer or from the computer you will have to make a calibration page and then scan it.
or - take out the cartridges and put them back, the printer should make its own calibration page, after it has finished take the printed page and place it on the platen glass and hit the scan boton.

WONT PRINT CALIBRATION PAGE


Take out the cartridges and turn off the printer. Turn it back on, and THEN put the ink cartridges in. After that, try to print the calibration page.

If this does not work, clean your printer using the cleaning maintenance from your HP printer software
