Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5300 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

5300 Won't print text!

I bought a floor model, the Easyshare 5300 and had to down load the software from the internet because it didn't come with it. I can insert a memory card from my camera and print pics, I can scan and pull the information scanned up on the screen, I can even print the information scanned and placed in another program, but I can NOT, in that same program get the 5300 to print any text. I can get it to print text from my Wordperfect, but it prints it in gray not black. The program I'm using is a scrapbooking one, but I had no trouble using it with my old Lexmark printer. I've tried everything I can think of and need help!!! Please I have 12 scrapbooks to finish for 12 first graders before Tuesday !!! Thanks, a very frustrated user, April

K...Trust the solution. Try these steps. Open the printer, remove the ink and remove the printhead (See User's guide). Reseat the printhead and the ink cartridges. The printer will come up with an error message that requires calibration. Do the calibration and scan the sheet that prints right after by pushing the start button. In the menu options, clean the printhead. Do one basic and one deep. Print a demo sheet (another menu option) to see if the quality has gotten better. If it has not call Kodak AiO Tech support. You will need a replacement printhead.

My printer is not printing with all of the colors and there is banding, brand new ink and printheads changed in the last 6 months.


I'm having a simialr problem, I can get my Kodak EasyShare 5300 printer to print pictures just fine, I can even get it to copy & print from the scanner. In both black and color inks. What I can not get the Kodak EasyShare 5300 Printer to do is to print from Microsoft Office Word, or Works for that matter any text document what so ever. I've never had a problem with the printer ever, not even when I upgraded to Windows 7 it printed just fine up till a few months ago and started acting up. At first I thought it was because I hadn't used it in awhile so I replaced both cartridges so they are brand new. Tried my experiment again and it did the same thing, pictures, and copy and print from the printer works just great...text however from the Word programs....nothing but a blank page.

Running Windows 7 - 64 bit Dell Touchscreen, Dual Core Processor. Before you ask...before this incident the Kodak Printer intergraded just fine and worked without incident. Since it is not the printer portion (unless its the printhead), it has to be a software problem...although, I used the disk that came with the printer to re-install it and not from the web just in case that was the problem. Course would installing the web upgraded software be of any assistance? Anyone have any solutions? Thanks.
