Some troubleshooting steps you could try include:

Open the printer.
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.
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.

Hope this helps.

P.S. Please excuse any spelling or gramatical errors.

When I print pictures on my Kodak 5300 printer there are lines all through them. I have cleaned the print head two times, one after another and the lines are still there. What will remove the lines?


If they are white lines keep trying to clean the print head. If they are black lines you need to physically clean the bottom of the print heads with a damp cloth.

Kodak 5300aio printer


I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM WITH MY KODAK EASYSHARE 5300 PRINTER. I EMAILED KODAK SERVICE DEPT 2 TIMES AND THEY WILL RESPOND IN 24HRS,BUT I RECEIVE NO REPLY AT ALL FROM THESE PEOPLE. THE REAL FIX I BOUGHT A HP PHOTOSMART C7280 ALL IN ONE PRINTER,FAX,COPIER SCANNER AND IT IS GREAT AND I HAVE THE EXTENDED SERVICE PLAN FROM STAPLES. HP IS GREAT AND IT IS WIRELESS EASY TO USE AND GREAT COLOR! I JUNKED MY 5300. I THINK THEY HAVE PROBLEMS WITH THESE PRINTERS AND DO NOT WANT TO REPAIR THEM.
