SOURCE: not recognizing new ink cartridge

We had the same problem and tried all steps Customer Service suggested each time; after several calls, it was determined we had a defective printhead... Kodak sent a new printhead, new ink cartridges w/ an envelope to return the ones I was using.
Apparently it's a common problem with this model; especially the earlier ones. Have had NO problems since the printhead was replaced.

I would suggest if you have recurring problems (even after Customer Service directives), call and ask if you might have a defective printhead.

SOURCE: Kodak EasyShare 5100 won't print

Hi FixYa team, my Kodak printer's "Check color ink" red light was flashing so I just put in a new color ink cartridge (even though I am only printing black and white). I restarted the machine to try and print some address labels and it acts like it is printing but the paper comes out blank yet I can print pictures. I tried to print and email and it won't do that either.
Thanks.

SOURCE: installed new ink cartridge/ still saying low color

try calling 1 800 421 6699 for US.
solution
try to remove inks, then reseat it..
then remove printhead, by pushing the latch on the upper right, then put it back in. be sure that it will snap. close the door with no inks. try to look at the message, if it has the same error, put the inks on it and close the door again.. then if you still have the error message, call the hotline no. and I'm Afraid that you need a Printhead replacement or defective ink issue...
they will replace it for free..

SOURCE: Error message that color cartridge has low ink, so

No way 2 override the message. Printer works on a combination of both black and color ink to print those perfect pictures and documents. If it is showing color ink needs replacement,you ve 2 change it in order to print even in black and white.

SOURCE: My Kodak ESP 3 all-in-one printer will not print

you may try to clean the printhead and recalibrate the printer. if this will not correct the problem, you need to replace the printhead. I suggest contacting Kodak technical support to have a replacement printhead.

I have put a new black cartridge in printer but nothing is printing out- when I run a test the color cartirdge are working but not black


Hmmm, make sure it is properly fitting in there.... Take it out and put it back in.... Usually the printer performs some kind of "preparing the ink" operation... SO allow it to does this...... Make sure you are using genuine ink, sometimes printers won't accept non-genuine inks.... Hope this helps :)

It will not register the ink cartigdes.always showed 'low' from day one. put new cartirdges in black still says low. says color cartridge is missing..used to be able to bypass the ..won't print at all now


To solve the printing problem..


# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.

1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.

# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.

Do I have to install a color cartirdge (CL-41)?


Some will allow printing with just black & others will not. You may need to put a color cartridge in to print. Check your owners manual or canon website to make sure but if you do need a color cartridge you can buy a generic brand that works with your printer to save some $$. Hope this helps.

Brand new Printer lights flashing


You should install driver first, then connect printer when prompted, then install inks, as it needs the driver to tell it there are full inks fitted, refer to the manual.
