This type of problem is not easy to troubleshoot using this method of communication, but I will do my best!

It's not the ink cartridge that is causing the problem if you have tried different ones and still get the same result. Try checking the color profile you are currently using in your printers settings and adjust the ink saturation. Here are the steps to adjust these settings:

Open a color document in Microsoft Word or a photo in a program that has "File, Edit, View" commands in the menu at the top.

With the document and/or picture open in that program, click on "file" at the top of your screen and slide down to "photo" and click on it. This will open the print screen.

In the print screen, click on the box to the right that says "preferences" on it. This will open your print settings.

I don't know what operating system (Win Xp, Vista ect) you have or which program you will use to change these settings - the screens after this point may be different on your end.

After you click on preferences you should see areas where you can change things like the size of paper you are going to print on or the type of item you want to print (document vs picture). There might be tabs at the top to go to other areas with additional printing settings on them too. What you are going to look for is a color profile, or area with a slider that allows you to correct or change the amount of ink you are going to use when printing.

Click on each tab to check for graphics settings that includes color profiles to choose from. Try changing the settings and then print a test page and come back to this same area if it does not correct the print to normal. Keep trying until you have checked each setting and tested a print page afterwards and if you cannot get the colors to print correctly - go back to your question in Fixya and use the comment or reply link to report your findings to me. I will help you troubleshoot until we find a solution for your problem.

I was recently given a 5300 all-in-one printer.I want to replace the ink cartridges. I bought ink(kodak) and want to make sure it is correct before I open the box. I bought an ink combo pack for an...

You got it right - the Kodak EasyShare 5300 All-in-One uses 10 series Kodak cartridges, and
since your box says 10B+10C, it has (2) 10-series cartridges in it - one 10-series Black (10B), and
one 10-series Color cartridge (the 10C).

The 10 Series Ink cartridges are compatible with:
EasyShare 5000 series (your All-in-One belongs here)
ESP 3/5/7/9
ESP 3200/5200/7200/9200 Series
ESP Office 4100/6100

Just replaced both ink cartridges on Kodak ESP 3. Will not recognize color cartridge. Both are genuine Kodak cartridges. Red light for color cartridge just keeps blinking. Have tried unplugging....

silly question, you remembered to remove the plastic film off the connectors right? i realize you did 2 different cartridges but hey sometimes thing get messed up lol. it may be a faulty cartridge, you should be able to return it if that's the case. the only way to know for sure is to take it back and get a different one. if that's the case problem solved, you could always power down the printer completely after installing the cartridges and rebooting it

If you need further help, reach me via phone at

I have a ESP 3 all in one printer. I am out of the color cartridge and it will not let me print just using the black cartridge. WHY??????

Different printers will work differently, even within the same brand, like your Kodak Printer for instance.

Some printers will work with a black cartridge only without the color, and some printers need both color and black and white cartridges to be filled in order to work at all.

It's just a design thing.

My Kodak printer ESP3 is not printing. It keeps flashing over the 3 color tear drops (red,green,purple). Ive powered it on and off several of times as well as checking the cords.

This 3 color drop flashed when the color ink cartridge needs to be replaced.

Try to use a new color ink cartridge > If no go, call Kodak they will replace the color ink > If no go > Call Kodak and this time they will replace the printer

ESP-9 will not recognize new cartridge

2 things to discount first

1. Are you using a new Kodak cartridge, Kodak like other printer suppliers use a recognition chip in there cartridge in an attempt to get past the refillers, try a genuine replacement cartridge

2. Is it possible that more than one cartridge needs replacement, this will also throw up the same message

If the answer to both these are No contact the supplier of the cartridge and inform them of the trouble or contact Kodak directly

Just installed my new esp-3 printer will not print or copy any colour just washed out black/white

Check if you have removed cartridge protection tab from color cartridge. see MANUAL for assistance. If removed try to find you printer must have COLOR to B/W switch. Check if color light is on. If it printed test page and it wasn't color you may not installed cartridge correctly.
