Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

Easy Share 500 printer only printing 1/3 of picture. Allante666 is exactly right. Little white cam is broken. Problem, I'm not sure how to open printer to get to it. I have removed 5 screws and front of top lifts up, but is still attached at the back. I don't know if it should pop-off or open like a suitcase. I have not forced it for fear of breaking it.

    Tbreese47 - THANK YOU! Directing me to the "instructables" web site helped tremendously. I followed the steps carefully and my Kodak 500 is printing again. I could never have taken it apart without the step-by-step pictures. Thanks!

Other people have had this problem, and I stumbled on this neat site that has pictures of the disassembly process. You were right not to force it, and this web page will show you how to do it:

This should help, and good luck!

I have a Kodak Easy Share 5300. Just changed both


  1. Check that your color cartridge/toner is not empty or blocked.
    This is the least likely cause of the problem, but an important check to make. Most color printer drivers and/or software provide functions to verify alignment and color output. Consult your manual or open your printer driver by clicking Start : Settings : Printers and right-click on your printer's icon and select Properties. 'Browse' the Properties dialog for options that perform system checks.
  2. Look for a 'Print only Black and White' option.
    Open your printer driver's Properties dialog (see above) and look for a color option that uses black only. Uncheck it or select an option that enables color. Some color printers have different resolutions for color and black-and-white (usually higher resolution in black-and-white). Some applications (not Origin) will force a printer to use a quality mode that affects this option, and if the resolution is forced to its highest the color output may be disabled.
  3. Enable gray scale printing.
    Some combinations of printers and operating system versions can lead to a miscommunication between Origin and a printer driver. Under these circumstances, Origin may 'think' it is dealing with a black-and-white printer when it is actually using a color printer. Beginning with 6.1, the Origin Print dialog displayed one of two messages depending on the print capabilities read by Origin:
    1. Enable color as gray scale
      This check box displays for color printers
    2. Use simplified colors
      This check box displays for black-and-white printers
    If you are seeing the first checkbox and you are using a color printer, then checking the box should tell Origin to send all color information and let the printer handle any conversions that may come up. In earlier versions of Origin there was a rather cryptic "Print color on black and white printers" checkbox which did the same thing.

How do I get my Kodak Easy Share Printer #7330 to print pictured from my Compaq computer?


first install the printer onto the computer, downloading the drivers or using printer disk.
If your printer is already installed on your computer and working you do not need to install it , skip this step.

Then download pictures onto computer, using USB cable.

open downloaded picture by double clicking with left mouse button.
Once you open the picture with picture viewer open file menu and chose print, or click the small printer sign.

If you use oprint preview iit may be easier for you to change printer settings to print the pictures.

Printing 1/2 page


Ok, this is what I found when I finally broke down and decided to take it apart. There is a bar with two cams on either side of it that are used to engage the print head to the paper. The smaller cam on the bar has cracked and no longer pushes the print head down on that side of the paper, causing the half picture. What I did was remove the cam from the bar, glue it back together, then wrapped it tight with thread (only one layer, there is a clearance issue), and put epoxy around the thread(to help reinforce the cam). Once the epoxy had cured, I reinstalled the cam to the bar. The cam did crack again, but the thread and epoxy held it tight to the bar. After reinstalling the bar and putting the rest of the printer back together, I crossed my fingers and tried to print a picture. Tada!! It worked!! I have since printed a few more and have not had a problem yet. It may only be a temporary fix, and nothing could be better then the original replacement part (if you know where to get it), but this has worked for me. Good luck and be patient.

Kodak Easyshare printer Dock 3


SOLVED!!
eppelr is correct, the small white cam on the right hand side at the top (internally) cracks and this allows it to come loose on its shaft and stops it from pressing the thermal head down onto the ink film on one side. If like me you have the top of the range bluetooth model its worth buying an old basic model off ebay for a tenner and robbing the shaft out of that. The mechanics are more or less the same and the shaft itself is identical, Doubt you would be able to buy the shaft seperate from Kodak, Thanks eppelr, I now have two working plus 3's.
If anyone wants pics etc please get in touch
