    Tried everything as suggested and as before it worked for 4 prints then went back to spitting out neg. prints. Will order a new printhead if I can find how to do that!

Here are the things you will be asked to try if you call support. They may fix the problems as well. Taking the printhead out and putting it back in is the big helper.

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.
(If this is a 5100, do it in the home center ->? in the top right ->Maintainence ->Clean Printhead.)
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.

Won't print in color. Looks like a negative


Try going to printer settings either via 'file' 'print' or 'start' 'control panel' 'printers'
some printers have settings colour - text - photo - gray scale - chrome - negative etc Click on the one you need & 'save'
Alternatively, if the print has some colour but lacks others you may be out of ink/toner of the missing colour[s]

Kodak EasyShare 5300- Won't print


I fumbled around a similar problem today. After printing photos you have to convert the printer to print to paper. If there is a green LED on the printer your are in PHOTO mode. Reach into the 4x6 printer and pull back the slide and the LED will go out. Now you can print on paper.

I keep getting cartridge error or it prints a blank page. There is no tape on the cartridge and they are installed properly. It prints sometimes but not all the time Printer keeps saying cartridge error


This has been just happening with me aswell - I just changed the colour cartridge with the black cartridge ran out but i kept it in as it told me to place one in. Trying to print out but black ink wont come - just blank pages - surely the colour cartridge can make black? However, if you have the colour cartridge and are on microsoft word or similar, change the colour of the writing to dark navy and it will print out documents.
