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

1 Answer

5300 printer My printer makes a growling noise when its getting ready to print and many times it says there's no paper in the tray and there always is. Is the noise something to worry about, its only 7 months old and used about 3 or 4 times a week.

    It's not really loud, just not the smooth usual noise. It's been going on for about 2 months. I will look at the back and see what I can see. I'll let you know what happens, but it may be awhile. I'll wait until I get assistance from one of my technical kids to help me look.

    Thanks.

Of course some noise is common with every inkjet printer. If it sounds really odd or loud though, you should take off the back access panel and check for jams. Has the printer done this all along?

Red light is constantly blinking and when try to print, there is always a paper jam


Every time there is paper jam, the printer knows the job is not completed and hence tries to re-print after the paper is removed and cover is shut.

Clear the print job from computer.
Power off the printer and Clear the paper jam (if any)
I would try to use different tray. The paper pickup roller in one path may be worn out.
eg Sheet feeder or multipurpose tray.
Load paper in new tray
Set the application to use new tray

Ensure you sue the right thickness (gsm) of the paper. Quality of paper is crucial. Too thin; too thick can affect functioning.

My kodak easyshare5300 is printing black picture


Hi-

If your product is still within the warranty period from KOdak then you can call them up for some step by step troubleshooting to help you with your problem and as well they can replace the printer if defective.

Try this first

Calibrate your printer, then print a demo sheet.
  1. If paper is in the photo paper tray, remove it.
  2. Load photo paper into the photo tray.
    1. Fan the paper to keep the sheets from sticking together. IMPORTANT: Do not overload the photo tray.
    2. Load a maximum of 20 sheets into the photo tray, with the Kodak logo facing up.
    3. Engage the photo tray by pushing it in until it stops. p289_0006aa.jpg
  3. Calibrate your printer.
    1. Press Menu.
    2. Select Calibrate Printer, then press Start.
    3. Wait for your printer to print the calibration sheet.
    4. Place the calibration sheet face down on the scanner glass.
      • For the 5300 AiO printer, place the sheet on the front right corner of the scanner glass.
      • For the 5500 AiO printer, place the sheet on the left rear corner of the scanner glass.
    5. Press Start.
    6. Wait until "Calibration complete. Remove calibration page from scanner glass. Press OK to continue." appears on the LCD display.
    7. Remove the calibration sheet from the scanner glass, then press OK.
  4. Print a demo sheet.
    1. Disengage the photo tray by sliding it towards you until it stops. When the photo tray is disengaged, the main tray is active.
    2. Select Print Demo Page, then press Start.
    3. Wait for the demo sheet to print.

Then call them if issue Persist at these numbers:

In the U.S. and Canada: 1-800-421-6699
In Australia and New Zealand: 1800 793 895

Load Noises


If the HP LaserJet series printer is experiencing a grinding or odd noise when printing or on power-up, open the printer and remove the print cartridge. Close the printer door.
If the noise does not recur with the print cartridge removed, replace the print cartridge.
If the noise persists, this may indicate a hardware failure. If possible, isolate and identify the location of the noise and contact a local HP sales and service ofice at the number noted in the product User's Guide . A list of phone numbers can be found at

Loud clicking noise


This is one of the known issues with the HL-5240. This will require a replacement paper tray. Definately the problem if it is more of a clack than a click.
