Kodak 5300 issue

We have a failry new Kodak 5300 printer. It is not using the black cartridge. For a page or two when we first put in the new black cartridge it uses black but it lasts for barely a page. We have changed both cartridges 1 time, the black cartridge 3 times. I have cleaned the printhead numerous times, deep cleaned the printerhead numerous times and re-calibrated numerous times. I have re-loaded the software with no positive results. I am not sure what else to do?

Thank you,

Sandy Blaney

    Kodak 5300 printer has the same problem, changing the printhead has not cured the problem for other users so why should it now?

Your printhead sounds like it's defective. You should call the Kodak AiO support number - 1800 421 6699. Once the agents get your name and address and such, they will send a new printhead to you. It doesn't take long to get.

My kodak 5300 will not accept the new ink cartridges


The version of firmware you originally had on the printer when you changed the ink cartridge was bad. There is a known issue that when you put in a new ink cartridge when the printer is in the error state "COLOR INK EMPTY. REPLACE COLOR INK CARTRIDGE" the unit writes that value to the new ink cartridge so you will continue to have that error.

So to fix your problem Open the access door and Remove the ink cartridges. Then download and install the new Firmware. Heres the link.

Kodak AiO 5300 Firmware

Then sadly you have to go get another new ink tank and install it.

If you can get through to kodak you should request reimbursement of some sort like a free set of ink tanks.
