Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5300 All-In-One InkJet Printer

2 Answers

Cannot get printer to work.

Printer set up as instructed. When first came on, said paper jam, with no paper yet loaded in printer. Yellow light on on/off button keeps flashing will not stop. Cannot bring up anything when having pushed menu button, no other buttons work, not even cancle. In the little window on printer it keeps saying "please wait." I let it "wait" about an hour--nothing happened.
Cannot find anything to tell me how to fix problem. After reading of all problems people are having with this easyshare 5300, I am beginning to believe I made mistake in purchasing it.

Pushing up on the rollers when there is a non-existant paper jam but a paper jam error will cause damage to the printer in the long run. Do NOT do it.

I just want to let you know! that for fixing that problem you should call tech support and they are going to replace it for a refurbished printer, so for take that error message out you need to:
1. Unplug the printer from the power cord open the rear access door of the printer! and then you will see the roller you need to go on the third roller from left to right and roll it up like six times!,

2. closed the rear acces door and open the front acces door try to move the carriege of the cartridges to the midle!

3. take the cartridges and the printhead out

4. close the acces door plug the printer back in and then it will ask you for the printhead and the cartridges

So you just need to insert them back in! But this time make sure you insert that pritnhead properly because that error message was causing for that printhead in bad possition

My Canon Pixma MP600R insists that paper is jamed in machine, despite the fact that jam has been cleared and paper is being ejected when machine is switched on


The simplest thing would be to try unplugging the printer from the power source. Let it rest for 5 - 10 minutes then plug back in to the power supply and see if that resolves the problem.

If not you are going to need to do a thorugh inspection to verify that all paper remnants have been removed.

The following is for the MP600:

Issue: ERROR LCD: The paper is jammed. Clear the paper and press [OK].
Solution: Removing paper jams MP600

ASF / Paper Output Slot
  1. Turn off the printer.

  2. Remove paper from the ASF.

  3. Gently pull the jammed paper out.

Yellow light on and won't print on Dell model 1110 Lazer Printer


Dell printers are the worst I have worked with, this problem may be a 'paper jam' when there is no paper jam at all (or one REALLY stuck on the fuser). Check on the back of the printer for a piece of paper jammed on a sensor.

Brother 5250


I had the same problem on 4 Brother HL-5250's, I checked the whole printer, and couldn't find a paper jam, yet the red printer light wouldn't shut off. I finally followed the instructions on Brother's website for removing a paper jam, and the solution for all 4 printers was paper stuck in the fuser cover. See below on how to open the fuser cover.

Pull the tabs at the left and right hand sides toward you to open the fuser cover (1).

  2. Hint
  3. There are 2 kinds of covers at the rear of the printer. Please make sure to open both the back cover (step 7) and the fuser cover (step8).
