Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5100 All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

Kodak 5100 will not print consistently

We have a 5100 running on a Mac that is 9 months old. The printer worked fine until about a month ago. We went to print a 7 page paper and it spit out 7 blank pages. We printed again and it printed 2 of 7. We have reseated the ink head and replaced both ink cartridges. We have installed the latest software. It seemed to print for a day and now is back to nothing. Any ideas?

    Printer started printing pages with streaks, now prints really faint or not readable at all. Tried changing ink cartridge. Reset cartridges, turned printer off and on.....

    I have turned off and on, reset and even performed the maintenance on the printer heads. When I do a test page after the printer heads are cleaned (through maintenance) I can see clearly the test page, however, when I attempt to print my document...page comes out blank, yet icon shows printing job complete. I have this piece of **** for 4 months so can't return...anyone got any ideas???

I am currently having the same problem with a 17" iMac Intel Core Duo.  The printer worked fine for a few months, now it will only print in black and white and sometimes in color that is extremely faded.  I have tried every troubleshooting tip in the book and still no luck.

Printer not printing black ink


Contact Kodak with your problem. The problem is in the print head. Kodak will send you a new print head free, then follow the instructions that are inclosed to change the print head. DO NOT TRY TO CHANGE IT WITHOUT READING THE INSTRUCTIONS. You may damage the new head and they will not replace it a second time for free.

I have a Kodak easyshare all in one printer 5100


You need to clean the printhead of the printer to solve that

issue. Because everytime you print, excessive inks are going

to the printhead that's the reason why it's clogging the

system up. That's because Kodak printers is using

"pigments" as inks that's why Kodak printers are producing

high quality prints unlike other printers - a photo printed from

kodak could actually last for about 100 years. Now back to

your issue, you need to clean the printhead from the printer

but not manually. You could clean it by going to the

software of the printer namely the KODAK HOME

CENTER SOFTWARE. You need to click the "?" mark

icon on the upper right corner of the software window then

under the General Links select Maintenance then choose

Clean Printhead. Do it at least twice and then try making

prints. If that still doesn't work try calling Kodak Technical

Support Representative: 1-800-421-6699

I hope I have been some of help. ^_^

Will not print in color


Go to Kodak website,look for support, and repair. Online testing will probably determine that a new printhead is needed and they will probably send you a new one. My printer is only 9 months old and it has same problem.

Kodak 5100 no black printing, light on colors


Had the same issue... No black ink. Called the # from "Solution #1" guest, 18004216699. Had to patiently go through all the basic trouble shooting stuff like calibration, print head clean, demo print, etc. Once I went through that, they issued me a new print head for free, no shipping charges or anything. Just did this today, but they say I should have the print head in 3 days.

For once, service worked like it should!

Kodak Easyshare 5100 Wont Print In Color Or Black


For all of those problems, you need to replace the Printhead. This is one of the most common issues among the Kodak All in One Printers, they simply stop printing text. However, it seems that Kodak is sending out some new printheads that work so much better, so you should get in contact with their support and have them replace their printheads. Call cb_transparent_l.gifus.gifspace.gifspace.gifarrow.gifspace.gifspace.gifspace.gifspace.gifspace.gifspace.gifspace.gif1-800-421-6699cb_transparent_r.gif.
