I just replaced the ink cartridges in the 5100 printer-copier and the print still comes out faded-p-not as dark and clear as of a month ago. What do I do to get darker, clearer printing?

You will need to change the printing resolution to get a darker print. Open up the Kodak Easyshare 5100 software and go into the tools and set your resolution to the darkest setting. Another thing you can do is clean the print nozzles with rubbing alcohol

New ink cartridges in 5100 printing almost as if running out of ink print is faded how to adjust for best results


Most likely you need a new printhead. Call Kodak. Our 5100 has had printheads replaced. They will ask you if you calibrate & clean printhead. Do those first before calling. It is in maintenance. To find maintenance, click on the ? mark.

Did you clean the printer heads manually with alcohol and a Qtip?

Also pop out the red cartridge, cover the hole and give it a good shake, then try again.

Chances are the red ink simply wasn't as "fresh" as the others.

b.Click on the Help (?) button.

d.Click on the Clean Printhead option.


3.Print Demo Page.

Press Scan and Copy buttons at the same time for 2-3 seconds or until the printer starts printing then release the buttons.

If issue persists,the printhead on your printer requires replacement. Call 1.800.421.6699

If you are not using the printer that often, the ink may be drying out.. once the ink is dry on the printhead, it could very well be the cause of the problem.

For image quality issues, this is the place to go for troubleshooting them and getting a replacement head if needed.

Why wont the colors print out dark i even replaced the ink already. still nothing i have only owned it for like 6 months


Sounds to me like the printhead needs to be cleaned out, it has ink residue on it from the other cartridges you had in there. Page 47 in the manual for your printer explains how to remove the printhead from the printer. Here is the link to the manual for your printer: http://www.kodak.com/global/plugins/acrobat/en/service/manuals/AiOPrinters/5100AiOPrinterUG_EN-US.pdf Inside of the printhead you'll see holes where the ink cartridges are normally above. Those holes need to be cleaned out. I suggest you soak the bottom of the printhead in some warm water overnight. This will enable for the ink residue to fade away and then you can take out the printhead from the warm water and dry it all off. Put it back into the printer with the cartridges installed and then print a few diagnostic pages to give the ink a chance for it to flow properly.

Can print paper but photos have green tint


If you refilled the ink cartridges, this can happen. Kodak uses pigment based inks, the others use dye based inks. Also, make sure your printer is set for normal photo printing, rather than special effects.

Printer not printing black ink


Contact Kodak with your problem. The problem is in the print head. Kodak will send you a new print head free, then follow the instructions that are inclosed to change the print head. DO NOT TRY TO CHANGE IT WITHOUT READING THE INSTRUCTIONS. You may damage the new head and they will not replace it a second time for free.

Kodak 5100 will not print consistently


I am currently having the same problem with a 17" iMac Intel Core Duo.  The printer worked fine for a few months, now it will only print in black and white and sometimes in color that is extremely faded.  I have tried every troubleshooting tip in the book and still no luck.
