Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5500 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer


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....

How to clean ink absorber for canon mp237

First of all open the ink cartridge of your printer.
When the ink cartridge would move all the way over, then disconnect the power cord of your printer.
Now pull the frame of rubber from the printer and remove ink pads.
To clean ink pads you may place them in a bowl having warm water and start rubbing and squeezing them to clean it from ink.
After removal of ink, keep the pads separate for dry.
When the pads get dry completely, place them back in rubber frame.
Reinstall the rubber frame in your printer.

Laser printer makes light clicking noise when idle

When idle is potentially the fuser unit, after heating and cooling. However the print quality issue associated with the clicking sound could indicate an electrical issue. The HVPS maybe faulty causing the print quality issue (due to dependant parts) and the electrical click. In any case I would recommend calling Brother and finding the nearest authorised service agent.
