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

1 Answer

Cannot install firmware

I have the Kodak Easyshare 5500. It would not print black and after I cleaned the print head, it does a better job, although the quality is not good.

I tried to install the Kodak firmware, FW_5000_829; however, it will not install, stopping at the message: "Object reference not set to an instance of an object."

What do you recommend? I am so tired of the problems with this unit, I will probably junk it and buy an HP, even though the ink cartridges cost more.

Thank you.

What version of Windows you have? or MAC? Make sure you are downloading the right firmware to your printer otherwise it will not install or even damage the printer!! I updated the firmware on my Kodak 5500 printer and had no problems. Try calling Kodak, 1-800-421-6699, they will be happy to help you.

Kodak EasyShare 5300 says out of black ink?


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head. This may unblock the print head.

The printer will not print in black ink


Hi

Try going into Printing Preferences in the Kodak Printer Program and perform Maintenance.

You do not say which operating system you are using.

Start > (Control Panel) > (Category View) Printer > right click on the Kodak icon > Printing Preferences > Maintenance > Nozzle Check > Head Cleaning > test print > repeat nozzle check, head cleaning & test printing until problem is gone.

If this does not fix the problem, replace the black cartridge > head cleaning > test print.

You might need to perform head cleaning after every cartridge change.

I hope this helps.

Prints in scanline style lol black and blue:( got new ink new printer firmware all updates?


Seems like print head issue, might need replacing, try cleaning, go to printer properties and do the cleaning and calibration, if that does`t help then look at the cost of replacing print heads compare to the cost of replacing the complete printer, then make your decision.

Good luck.
