Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5100 All-In-One Printer
Kodak 5350 Color Ink Error ... after repacing the color ink cartridge I continued to get the error message "replace color ink cartridge". I tried everything; took both cartridges out, replaced, shut down, unplugged, checked software and firmware, they were up to date. I finally emailed Kodak Support and they said I have a defective color cartridge and they will replace it. Hope this helps others out there since this appears to be a known problem. It has something to do with a defective chip in the cartridge that indicates it is empty.
Yes the cartridges of all newer printers have chip that indicates the cart ink level, when the cart is empty the chip self destructs.

SOURCE: Kodak 5300 color ink error
OK so i found some new information that should solve the problem. 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 CARTRIDGE 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 First Remove the ink cartridges and download and install the new Firmware. Then sadly you have to go get another new ink tank and install it.
If you can get through to kodak you should request reimburstment of some sort like a free set of ink tanks.
