Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5500 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Prints on only 1/2 of sheet of paper

When I try to print anything from the monitor screen, it prints only on 1/2 the page--the right half. It will print the full header which I have not selected to print but everything else is on the right 1/2 of the page.

Let's verify the main source of the problem:
Are you possibly printing web pages? Some are not very printer friendly, and could fit the description you give.
If you can print successfully from another application (notepad, MS Word, etc.), your printer is working and the issue is software related (setup, etc.), and not the device. Check your page setup to see if you have the correct page size, orientation and offsets set correctly.

If all apps fail, check your printer's User Guide for more information.

When printing on the 4250, the margins are moved to the right of the paper cutting off the text. This is an XP computer and the PCL and PS drivers have been tested...


I would check to make sure that the paper trays are set properly and paper size is being detected properly. Print out the configuration page and see if that prints correctly. If it shows the same shift in image, check the paper sizes that the configuration sheet shows to make sure it is reading the trays properly. If the trays are reading properly and test print prints properly, then it is either your driver or the software you are printing from that has a problem.

To print the configuration sheet, press the down arrow button until the screen reads "information", press checkmark and then use the down arrow until "configuration page" is highlighted and then press the checkmark again. After a few seconds your page will print.

Printer prints out blank pages


Follow these steps:

1. Load a few sheets of plain paper in the sheet feeder.
Turn off your printer.
Hold down the paper button as you press the power button to turn the printer back on. Hold down both buttons until the power light begins to flash, then release the buttons.

The printer prints its test page, which includes a nozzle check. Does the paper print out without any gaps or with gaps? If there are do this:

2. Load a few sheets of plain paper in the sheet feeder.
Make sure the printer is on and the ink light is off.
Right-click the printer icon in the bottom right corner of your screen (the taskbar) and select Head Cleaning.

Follow the on-screen instructions to start the cleaning cycle, which lasts about 1 minute. The power light flashes throughout the cleaning cycle and stays on green when the cycle is finished.

Caution:
Never turn off the printer during a cleaning cycle or you may damage it.

When the power light stops flashing and remains on, you can check to see if the nozzles are clean. Click Print Nozzle Check Pattern and click Print. Check the printed nozzle check pattern to see if there are gaps in the lines.

If there are no gaps, click Finish.

If there are gaps or the pattern is faint, click Clean to clean the print head again.
You may need to clean the print head up to 4 times. You can also turn off the printer and wait at least 6 hours. Then try printing again.

If this doesn't work then double check that you have the toner cartridges in correctly. If you do then your print head is broken and/or burned out and it's best to just replace the printer. Fixing it would cost more than the printer itself

When I send my job to the printer. The printer will print but only on 1/2 of the page. it looks like the printer think i want two sheets on one page


Hello,

Is the whole page you want printed on half the page is just half the data printed? If the whole page is printed on half the paper then the problem is software. If the page only prints the left side or the right side blank on the other side then the problem is most likely the fuser assembly. Can you take a picture of the page and email it to us, we will email you back with what needs to be done next.

The printer only prints half a page then moves to next page and a


Before printing, the printer checks the paper size. If the paper edge guide is positioned incorrectly, the paper may be fed at an angle. If this happens, the bottom of the paper is therefore at an angle and not perpendicular with the paper feed rollers. This can result in the paper sensor not recognising the real page width as it can only detect a certain amount of the bottom of the paper sheet which is nearest to it.

If only part of the width of the paper is detected, the printer considers that the paper width is less than it actually is. To avoid printing on internal parts of the printer such as paper feed rollers, the printer automatically cuts the image to fit the detected paper width As this phenomenon depends on the paper feeding condition, it can be random.
Reload the paper and make sure it is loaded correctly. All the way to the right and the paper guide correctly adjusted.
