Kodak EasyShare 5300 Printer error message

Error code 3808 comes up and I don't know what that means. Printer won't turn off. What do I do next?

    The printer was low on ink when we tried to print - after coming up with the screen that we needed to replace the cartridges, the red light began to blink and WILL NOT STOP - and we CANNOT turn it off with the on/off switch. What sense does that make????

Ten Step Process to Fix the "Print Head" Error Message on the Kodak 5300 Printer.

1. Clear a good spot it your back yard that is free of shrups and flowers.

2. Get the following tools: Flat head screwdriver, shovel, sledgehammer.

3. Dig 24" x 24" hole in your back yard and rope off the excavation area for safety.

4. Whaaaaack the heck out of the Kodak 5300 with the sledgehammmer until such time that it is not a recognizeable piece of electronic equipment.

5. Stab it with the flat head screwdriver, just in case it has the Terminator syndrome (comes back to life).

6. Throw the piece of garbage in the recently excavated hole in your back yard.

7. Cover up that useless piece of garbage and forget you ever owned it.

8. Get in your car and go to the nearest electronic store and ask to speak to the manager.

9. Ask if they sell the Kodak 5300 printer. If so, whack him with the shovel. You don't want to seriously injure him so don't even consider the sledgehammer of the screwdriver. After all, its not his fault that his company carries such garbarge. But the whack is just to burn off some steam from your frustrations.

10. Purchase any other printer but a Kodak and live happily ever after.

My printer also had the same problem. I called Kodak, and was on hold for about 1-2 seconds. I had a person to talk to- they have excellent customer service. She walked me through the process. Basically what happened was that your printer does not reconize your ink as being full. Kodak told me I would need to get a new cartrigde. I went out and bought one, and the next day I received a new one from them. They had sent it overnight mail! They also told me if this didn't fix the problem to ship it back. They would pay for shipping and handling and send me a new printer!

Well if it wont turn off by pressing the buttons then simply unplug and plug it back in. Wait for a about 30 seconds before you plug it back in. And after that don't do anything if you receive the error message again, open the printer access door(where you put the cartridges in) remove the printhead and the inks and close it. NOTE: you will turn the printer off without the printhead and inks. then wait for 30 seconds again and turn it on. install each component until you clear the error message then if you have clear the error message go to www.kodak.com/go/downloads to upgrade the firmware.

Good Luck!

65" mitsubishi rear projection tv won't turn


IF model number posted is correct and green power light comes on for a few seconds and then goes off:
On front of set press and hold both the Menu and Input (device) buttons at the same time for at least five seconds and release both buttons.

Power light will then blink a two digit error code like 2 blinks, 2 blinks, a pause and repeat it several times.

Let me know what error code is found and I will tell you what it means.

Getting error 50.90 fuser error, how do I change the fuse?


I checked 5 different printers and couldn't find a 50.90 error code. Since you keep the printer model a secret I haven't got the foggiest idea as to what the error code means, except that it is a fuser error of some kind. And getting back to your question, If I don't know what kind of printer you have I can't tell you how to change the fuse(r).

When I turn on my lexmark x204n it gives me a 900 firmware error how can I get rid of it and what does it mean?


A 900 Firmware error means that something has corrupted the code on your printer.

The easiest way to fix this is to go to www.lexmark.com > Support > Downloads and download the latest firmware for your printer.

What does error code 6A400 mean


Hi You can Try 2 things.

ERROR 5100 means that there is some foreign object blocking your cartridges carriage that disables it from moving. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there



Next try.

It may be a piece of paper or a scotch tape or a staple wire.
Solution 1:
Clean the timing strip.

Solution 2:
The purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) may be not lubricated well enough .

Lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps); this repair probably require to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism.


Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Installed new cartridge and it says low on ink why? also what does the red light mean when it comes on and why?it will not go off.


I have the same problem. I replaced the black and both lights blinking now. Then the red light came on the power switch indicator and an error code 3802 and 3808 message that says "call support". No answer at their phones.
I think I need to change brands.
