Kodak EasyShare Printer Dock Series 3

My printer will only print half of the picture, the bottom half. I changed the paper and the cartridge and it still doesn't print but half the picture.
Please advise how to fix.
Thanks, Pat

    I have the exact same problem, and also tried to change the cartridge and paper. I also went to the Kodak website and did not get any solution.

    I was able to take the printer apart but I couldn't figure out what platic lever everyone is talking about repairing that's connected to the shaft.

If the boundary between the blank half and the printed half is a sharp line, a wire to the print head may be broken or disconnected. If the boundary is irregular (wanders up and down an 1/8 inch or so), the problem is most likely a broken plastic lever on the end of the shaft that moves the print head. The plastic lever is keyed to the shaft by a flat on the shaft. The plastic has a tendency to split at the edge of the flat, resulting in the lever slipping on the shaft. This in turn results in one side of the print head not contacting the paper with sufficient pressure. The other end of the shaft has a thick plastic sector gear which is much less likely to break.

I fixed mine by making a clamp from a metal spacer (made from split tube about 1/8 inch long) and force fitting it over the part of the plastic lever that fits on the metal shaft (on the end towards the inside of the unit). There is just enough clearance to do this without hitting the print head frame.

To remove the plastic lever, first remove two screws from back of unit, then pull up on top of unit, unplug two ribbon cables from circuit board and remove top. Then unplug two remaining ribbon cables from circuit board, and three screws holding circuit board. Lift circuit board and fan/fan-holder as one piece. Finally, disengage tab on plastic retainer on end of metal shaft, rotate tab straight up and lift shaft up and to the side (may require a little wiggling). The plastic lever slides off the metal shaft.

Why does my series 3 dock say I need to add paper when it is full?


This is because settings on your printer is set to a specific paper quality and size but you are loading the wrong type of paper in the tray. Match the settings with the type of paper you have and your problem is solved!

Does that help?

Printer isn't working correctly


To resolve this condition:
  1. Remove the power cable from the printer.
  2. Remove the paper tray from the printer.
  3. Remove the paper from the paper tray.
  4. Verify that the paper you're using has KODAK XTRALIFE Paper or a "G" inside a circle (for G600 series printer docks) on the back. Do not use 4- by 6-inch inkjet paper.
  5. Insert the paper tray into the printer.
  6. Open the color cartridge door, then remove the color cartridge.
  7. If the color cartridge ribbon is torn or damaged, replace it with a new cartridge.
  8. Install the color cartridge, and verify that it is fully engaged.
  9. Close the color cartridge door.
  10. Connect the power cable to the printer.
  11. Wait for the printer to initialize (the paper may eject automatically).
The printer's lights turn on. And after a few seconds, most or all of the printer's lights turn off. The printer will make noises while cycling. If a paper is stuck in the printer, while the printer is making the noises, pull gently on the paper to try and remove it.

Out of Paper


make sure that the paper is kodak xtralife with perforated tabs, otherwise the printer will really not pick it up and if it would - it's gonna be a really bad print

detach all the things that are attached to the printer.
grab a piece of lint-free cloth, wet the other end and leave the other end dry
clean the roller horizontally
use the dry end to dry up the roller and watch for water build ups
have at least 10 photo papers in the paper tray
slide the paper tray back into the printer
plug the printer onto the wall outlet, wait for the initializing sound
put cam to the printer dock
print a picture
