Easyshare 5100 not printing on correct side of paper

When I attempt to print a picture (8x10) on Kodak paper (with paper inserted properly). The printer will not print. It will only print on the rough side with the Kodak logo.

    I tried the Copy+Cancel and nothing happens. Problem still unsolved, but thanks.

    I used several types of glossy paper, some with logos on the wrong side, some without. This stinking printer will now only print on the WRONG side of the photopaper and the prints look like hell.

Load a single 8x10 page and press Copy + Cancel until the printer feeds the paper. It will spit it out blank. Try printing another photo. Make sure Kodak logo faces up when you load it

    Next step you may try is to upgrade firmware. Open Home Center > Help> Maintenance> Firmware upgrade and then do the copy+cancel

I cant print 6x4 pictures


make sure you have photo paper in the small tray and the tray is pushed in the whole way. The green light will come on. Load the paper with the shiny side down.

Verify that the ink cartridges are intact and securely inserted into the printhead, then make the same print.
  1. Lift the printer access door, then remove the ink cartridges from the printhead.
  2. Verify that the label on the ink cartridges is intact, and the cartridges are not damaged.
  3. Verify that only KODAK branded ink cartridges are installed.
  4. Insert the ink cartridges into the printhead, then press down firmly until you hear them click into position.
  5. Close the printer access door, then make the same print.
If this will not correct the issue, try to follow these steps
Clean the printhead, then print a demo sheet.

When i try to print an 8x10 the printer just spits out the paper


The printer has dirty optic sensors in the carriage head. Take it to a dealer and get them to fix it, do not start pulling out the carriage as this component requires fine adjustment that can only be done in a workshop.

Wallet size is 2" x 3". It is possible by using Kodak EasyShare software that is incorporated with the Kodak printer. If you dont have the software, you can download it from www.kodak.com/go/easysharesw

Just put a picture on the picture tray and click on print at home. Change the print size and play around with it.

Only 4x6 tray prints clearly


For this concern try pressing "copy+cancel" for media calibration then try again, make sure you have an A4 paper loaded. If this doesnt help you out try using the Kodak website www.kodak.com/go/itg and use "image quality" for class.

Color is all wrong


Your pictures are coming out with a blue tint. Remove the color catridge and look at the bottom of it. the Yellow is probably green. If it isn't, trying performing a printhead cleaning through your home center. After that, calibrate the printer, you may see that on the calibration sheet, that colors are missing. Scan the calibration page and then try your printing your pictures. If that doesn't work, contact kodak tech support, you need a new printhead.

Photo paper


1. Never put XtraLife paper from a printer dock in any inkjet printer. This paper is not made for inkjets. The ink will simply spill all over the place.
2. You can use any paper you wish that is inkjet paper but you must set the appropriate settings through the print manager if the paper is anything but Kodak inkjet photo paper. The 5100, 5300, and 5500 all recognize the backprint on the Kodak paper and automatically optimize the settings. Other brands of paper are not optimized in this fashion and therefore must be done manually through the print manager or software.
