PROBLEMS WITH COLOR NOT PRINTING

Kodak sent me a new print head and ink cartridges. I installed these. The color is still not printing properly. I tried to print something that was in black, green, pink, yellow. The pink or red did not print and the blue looks to not be working properly.

HELP PLEASE! I have only had this printer since March!

    No, they are coming out but with a yellow tint. The red isn't even coloring. The white is white (or color of the paper) but I had 2 red bits that didn't turn out and they are actually grey. The green on the leaves are perfect. But red isn't showing up at all or the pink hues.

    My Kodak5500 printer is not printing Red Ink at all. I ran all of the diagnostics and it still did not fix it. I think one time it printed ok and then all it would do is print everything but Red. I cant find a solution. My question brought me to this web site where it said there was a solution posted but all I saw under the so called solution was another question.

    Mine has only been used for approximately 25-30 pictures, now it prints no yellow, which gives all of my pictures a pink tone.

    i have hp Deskjet 840C printer, it was not used for nearly 5 years. I brought new color catridge and refilled the black one. On the first day while testing the color was good. Then from the next day itself colors are not proper. Red color comes as purple, orange as brown, yellow as light green. But blue is good.
    What should i do to solve this? Please help.

    Thanks in advance...

    Does it happen to most printers? 

    Or is it just a bad ink cartridge 

    Brown color on ay document or photo becomes pink when printed out. 

    It started this problem when a new ink cartridge was installed. 

    However my Kodak 5300 Aio Still brand new within 1 year. 

    Hopefully somebody can enlighten me on this. 

    Please let me know.... fromleny@gmail.com

I have an all-in-one Kodak ESP 3250 printer. Bought it 4 months ago. I'm interested in printing only in black, but now the color cartridge has emptied and it won't let me print with the black cartridge...


The KODAK All-in-One Printer uses an advanced built-in printhead. The system is designed to provide excellent image and text quality, while eliminating the need to purchase new printheads every time you replace ink cartridges, and saving you money. The printing system requires that both the black and color ink cartridges be installed to print. If either cartridge is not installed or is out of ink, the printer or printhead will not print correctly.


Install the color a new cartridge, avoid damage to the print head.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

CoaI have just added new ink and the colors do not print correctly and there is no black ink printing. What is the problem with my printer


Black printer ink in Kodak Printer may fail to be recognized by the printer. Most times an error message will be sent indicating that something is wrong with the black print cartridge. Sometimes the printer may accept to print with the black ink, but the printouts may have horizontal lines and very illegible letters. In such a case a manual cleaning of the print head should be carried out. In doing the manual cleaning, one should spray Windex heavily on paper towel and wipe off the surface of the print head.

My printer only prints color..have installed new black cartridge but still only prints color so installed another new black cartridge and still only prints color


Unlike most printers where the print cartridge and printheads are attached and sold together, the ESP 3 has a separate printhead from the cartridges.

Remoe both cartridges. Then look at the place where the cartridges sit. There is a latch you push down in the back. This will release the printhead to allow it to be removed.

Remove the print head

Take a cotton swap and a little alcohol and clean the printhead of all ink. Repeat this until it is totally clean.

Make sure the printhead is dry and clean of all ink and alcohol.

Replace the printhead.

Place cartridges in and test.

If this does not work, then you need a new printhead for this printer.

here is an example of how to remove and replace printheads for thsi unit.
http://faqs.kodak.com/atg/faq/attachments/AUR1780-2.pdf

to gt a new printhead you must contact kodak
http://www.kodak.com/go/contact

probably as expensive or almost as expensive as a new printer.

The seperate printhead from the carts are why kodak can have their ink so cheap. Those other brands cost that extra 15-20$ for the attached new head with each cart.

Kodak esp 3250 won't print black. Changed cartridge and still won't print black. Just installed new printer.


I fixed my ESP 3250 print problems by removing the cartridges and print head. Using a Q-tip and warm water, added drops of water to each of the print head ink wells until the water / ink from the wells bled thru onto a cleanex. Did this several times. Dryed the print head fairly well. Then added a drop of water to each cartridge for each color. Reasembled and ran an alignment and to my surprise, it works! I hadn't used my printer in a while, so the ink had dryed on the felt for both the print head and cartridges.......

Black ink won't print.


My printer worked fine since April but this week, I could not print. Thought my ink had dried up although I only replaced it just before christmas.

Bought new ink, installed it and still nothing. Calibrated, cleaned etc. etc. re-installed the disk to do maintenance and after several frustrating hours trying to fix it, I called my local Staples, the store at which I purchased this printer to ask for help.

First of all he said, what printer is it, black or white. I responded white to which he said okay that identifies the model for me. I am sorry to tell you that Kodak has acknowledged a problem with their print heads and have sent us several to replace the faulty ones. I said lovely, I wished I had known that several frustrating hours ago and he responded that it was his understanding that Kodak was going to announce this to all registered owners via a bulletin. Unfortunately I did not get it so wasted a lot of time. He requested I come in and get the new print head or if need be bring in the printer and they would install it for me. I am pleased with the store's response but not very happy with Kodak's lack of committment to get the word out.

Hope this helps.

Kodak Easy Share 5500 will not print anything with black in it


Go here:

http://www.kodak.com/go/aiotroubleshooting

Within the tool, select Print quality, then No black, missing text, or text quality.

After answering all the questions (assuming you haven't abused your printhead) you will be prompted to enter a service number, name, and address to be mailed a replacement printhead.

I just went through this and was told my printhead would arrive in 2 to 5 business days.
