Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5100 All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

Very poor B&W printing

Our EASYSHARE 5100 makes decent color prints but you can barely see the copy when you make a b&w print of a document. Even when the printer is set to print the "best" copy.

Have changed the b&w cartridge with no success.

First thing you can try is running the printhead cleaning. if you double click your status monitor (bottom right hand corner of windows screen) then click the maintenance button on the window. Then click the printhead cleaning button. Try this a few times then attempt another print.

If you dont have the printer connected to a PC there is a combination of 2 buttons on the printer you need to press to do a printhead cleaning. Not sure what they are.

If after you run a few printhead cleanings the black prints still dont print well, the only thing you can do is call kodak customer service they will have you update your firmware and software and reinstall the printhead a few times but in the end you can get them to send you a new printhead. The printheads are not sold in stores.

Good luck

Is there an inexpensive manual avail for TDC Vivid Mainliner 300 slide proj.?


I see manuals on eBay for around $14 but nothing cheap or free. It's unfortunately one of those that is just rare enough that nobody wants to cut anything lose. Sorry... You might try a Google search if you are having a specific problem - sometimes you can find a support or community forum that has a thread about the issue.

Good luck

180/900 in the lowest terms


180/900 is 1/5 in the lowest terms.

Divide both 180 and 900 by 180. 180 divided by 180 is 1, 900 divided by 180 is 5. This gives 1/5.
