To calibrate the printer right click on the printer icon and open the status monitor once you open it there is 3 symbols on the top right of the box one looks like a hammer and wrench in an x configuration, next to that is an i for i for about and a ? for help. Click on the x which is Maintenance it will bring up a new box which has 2 options calibrate and printhead cleaning when you chose calibrate it will print a calibration sheet which you then need to put into the scanner portion and press the start button, these instructions will also come up on the screen when you go through the process.

Hello nimo1955,

First, you need to print the calibration sheet yourself.

Second, to calibrate your 5300 printer: Press on the MENU button and search for calibrate. After you printed the calibration sheet, you need to put it into the scanner glass facing down and then press on Start button, but make sure that it is well aligned to the printer.

I hope I have been of some help.

If u do not get this message,that means you have not installed printhead properly.

Im trying to calibrate my printer but it wont print black what do i do


The calibration sheet is comprised of many different colors - cyan, magenta, yellow, and black. Just because you are missing black ink doesn't mean that you can't do the calibration. As long as there is a blue arrow in the top left hand corner, you can match that up with the yellow arrow on your scanner, press the start button, and the printer will calibrate.

Printer will only print in purple/pink,enstalled new colour cartridge configured as required,still no change. help thank you


Print out a calibration sheet, either from the menu, or press photo and cancel at the same time. Your calibration sheet is probably missing a color. You should have black, blue, yellow, and magenta(pink). If you're missing any of these colors, your printhead is clogged. Try doing a printhead cleaning. Print another calibration sheet, if the color is still missing, you need a new printhead. Call Kodak.

Poor color on home printed photos


hmm..no blue, eh? that means that one of your print head cartidge lines is clogged. Sounds like time for a new cartridge tray, which you can access through www.kodak.com

Hi-

If your product is still within the warranty period from KOdak then you can call them up for some step by step troubleshooting to help you with your problem and as well they can replace the printer if defective.

Try this first

Calibrate your printer, then print a demo sheet.
  1. If paper is in the photo paper tray, remove it.
  2. Load photo paper into the photo tray.
    1. Fan the paper to keep the sheets from sticking together. IMPORTANT: Do not overload the photo tray.
    2. Load a maximum of 20 sheets into the photo tray, with the Kodak logo facing up.
    3. Engage the photo tray by pushing it in until it stops. p289_0006aa.jpg
  3. Calibrate your printer.
    1. Press Menu.
    2. Select Calibrate Printer, then press Start.
    3. Wait for your printer to print the calibration sheet.
    4. Place the calibration sheet face down on the scanner glass.
      • For the 5300 AiO printer, place the sheet on the front right corner of the scanner glass.
      • For the 5500 AiO printer, place the sheet on the left rear corner of the scanner glass.
    5. Press Start.
    6. Wait until "Calibration complete. Remove calibration page from scanner glass. Press OK to continue." appears on the LCD display.
    7. Remove the calibration sheet from the scanner glass, then press OK.
  4. Print a demo sheet.
    1. Disengage the photo tray by sliding it towards you until it stops. When the photo tray is disengaged, the main tray is active.
    2. Select Print Demo Page, then press Start.
    3. Wait for the demo sheet to print.

Then call them if issue Persist at these numbers:

In the U.S. and Canada: 1-800-421-6699
In Australia and New Zealand: 1800 793 895

Thanks for using Fixya!

Won't scan


upgrading the firmware could solve the problem if not calling tech support for further troubleshooting would be best..
