    Same problem. I go to print a document and I can see the imprint of the words on the page, but it is almost as if no ink is there.

    Our printer wont print the black ink cart. and we bought a new one and still wont. It is very light.

    I seem to have the same problem as everyone else. Loaded new cartridges - blank pages printed or the printing was so light its unreadable. Completed the cleaning and still nothing. Purchased printer mid February so after only a few months it now needs a new printhead????

    when I print the paper is all black. I scan and the paper is all black. I have asked this question to every kodak online help but noone can help. They all mistake what I am saying and talk about blank paper not black.

Poor print outs of black ink - color is fine - I change the cart. and it stills gves me poor quality prints- I've tried the cleaning process from the menu - now what?


Kodak EasyShare 5000 series

Clean the print head then print a demo sheet.

  1. Verify that inkjet paper is loaded in the paper trays.
  2. On your desktop, start the KODAK All-in-One Home Center, then select the Help [?] icon.
  3. From the Help menu, select Maintenance, then select Print head Cleaning. The On/Off light flashes green during the cleaning procedure.
  4. When the On/Off light glows a steady green, press Photo and Copy simultaneously to print a demo sheet.

If the Demo print is bad- IE: no black, blurry print etc., then you may need to replace the print head:

Kodak 5300 aio printer won't print black


It is the print head. Cleaning the heads does not do any good, either does replacing the ink. What you'll need to do is contact Kodak's customer service line and they can replace it for you free of charge. On this site everyone seems to be saying it is consistently the black that stops, however, based on what Kodak said it is possible that either the black or the color can have this same issue.

When you call in they will ask you for your service number, which is located on the bottom left corner of the machine, when you lift the lid (as if you were going to replace the ink). They didn't ask me when I bought it, how much I used it, etc.

They will set up a case for you - it takes 2-3 business days for the print head to arrive. They will provide you with an invoice number as well. Be sure to document it all just incase the head never comes, or if there are additional issues after you receive it (and/or if it doesn't solve the problem)
