Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5100 All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

Printer won't print.

I changed out the ink cartridges on my 5100 a while ago. It worked fine for a while. Then, it started just spitting out blank paper. But on the paper you could see faint ink marks where they should be. So the printer is trying to print. And very miniscule amounts of ink or making it on to the paper. But its getting less and less. I checked the cartridges for the tape, calibrated it, uninstalled, re installed. I'm just stuck. Help?

    And haha. Yes I did check the ink levels. 80% full of black and 100% color.

    I too just installed new ink cartridges, but instead of not always printing, it does not print text from my word processor program. It DOES print out pictures, and wordart in the word processing program.

    Can anyone help?
    Thanks

Just to let you all know, I have contacted Kodak and they think my problem is a faulty printer cartridge and will be sending one out to me. I will update how this works, once I get it

The black ink on my Brother DCP-130C won't print and it's a brand new ink cartridge. I thought it was a defected cartridge so I bought another one, same thing. The other 3 colours print ok though....


I have the same problem. Everything on the printer is working just fine. It'll do a test page just fine, so everything's working right. The %$^ thing just won't print. It makes noise like it's printing when you give it a print job, but it spits out blank pages.

My printer is printing blank pages


I used to have one of these printers.

1. Check the ink levels.
2. Try printing on DVD.

The C309 has a black photo cartridge.

Text prints from the regular black cartridge and pictures print from the photo black cartridge.

THe best way to tell if by checking first the ink levels and replace cartridge if necessary.

One thing you can do to check if the printer is printing is by adjusting on the Printer Setttings and printing on one color.

To do this you need to choose the color from a circular palette .

Another way is to use Word or any other processor and change the font color to blue and print it.

Hope it helps.

My HP Photosmart printer was printing just fine until I had to change ink cartridges. Now it won't print anything, it just spits out a blank page.


Sometimes your printer print blanks pages, if your printer is out of ink. You can check the quantity of ink in the status of the printer. Sometimes, your printer displays messages if it is out of ink. So if you are facing such issues, you need to refill the ink in your printer. Communication problem with the printer and computer is also a reason for printing blank pages.

Calibration runs fine. But won't print anything else!


Here are the things you will be asked to try if you call support. They may fix the problems as well. Taking the printhead out and putting it back in is the big helper.

Remove the black and color ink cartridges.
Right above where the black ink cartridge was, in the top left hand corner of the printhead, push up towards the ceiling and you should be able to push a button that releases the printhead.
Place the printhead right back into the printer and push straight back on the back wall.
You should hear a loud snap.
Replace the ink cartridges which should snap as well.
Close the printer.
After about a minute or so the printer will ask you to do a calibration.
Insert a paper and press start.
Scan the calibration sheet.
After that, in the menu, do a printhead clean.
(If this is a 5100, do it in the home center ->? in the top right ->Maintainence ->Clean Printhead.)
Do one basic and one deep.
Print a demo sheet to see if anything has changed.
If the picture looks better, continue to do cleans.
In the event that it does not, the printhead will need to be replaced and since the printer is still under warranty, Kodak specialists will try to overnight you a printhead.
The whole process is short and free.
The number for Kodak AiO Support is 1 800 421 6699.

HELP!! I'm soooo frustrated!


Ok. Vista could be the problem.

Try these drivers:

http://www.kodak.com/global/en/service/downloads/dln_ekn033539.jhtml?operatingSystem=windows_vista&downloadLanguage=en

These are for Vista. Once you install them, update the firmware in your printer and follow the instruction on this link when you do it.

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.
