    I have exactly the same problem.

    I calibrated my printer and cleaned the printheads. It did not help.

    i have the same problem thought I bought duds for new ink cartridges

    bought two more at a diferent store, was good for a few copies and it went off again. I figure it may be the printhead. But do you also have to replace

    printhead every time you need new ink cartridges?

It seems that this printer has issues, I called the number below and went through a few steps with them, my issue was the black printing and the printing of pictures being red.. they are sending me a new printhead...this might just be the issue

After having the same trouble w/my Kodak 5100, I called the troubleshooting phone number. The tech guided me through a few procedures and then determined that a new printhead would solve the problem. It arrived in the mail just a few days later and it did solve the problem - so far. I'm cynically waiting for the next problem to arise, but for now, it's working as it should. I'd advise calling them.

I used the Kodak website to troubleshoot my printer. I also found that they had issues with their printheads. I e-mailed them to see how I could get a replacement and after a couple of e-mails clarifying serial numbers, addresses and etc, they sent me a replacement printhead free of charge.

When I installed the new printhead, I got a fatal error message that said to call their support number. The tech had me remove the printhead and re-install it. Everything is working like it should now.

Sounds like perhaps the print cartridges need cleaning and alignment.

How can I scan a document. My 5100 AIO does not appear to want to carry out this function


In order to scan, the 5100 needs to be connected to the computer and the Kodak AiO Home Center software needs to be installed. Press the Scan button on the device and press Start to begin scanning. Refer to page 41 of the manual for detailed instructions. If you don't have the manual handy, you can view the PDF here.

Tip

I have to agree with you Zeizz. We bought our 5100 in the fall of 2007. After...


Tip of the day:

DO NOT buy a KODAK printer. It is pure **** but worse is the service you'll get from Kodak when you run into a problem.

Their service or lack of service makes me wonder if KODAK isn't about to go into receivership. There is such a desperate tone to their way of doing business these days it makes you wonder.

I've owned all HP printers at home and at work and NEVER had a problem with one of them.

The Koday 5500 displayed a printhead error the same day I purchased it and the issue hasn't gone away.

Stay away from ****.

Koadak easy share all in one, won't print in bacl


Check the version of AiO software you are using. We had to re-install the Aio Kodak software yesterday because the print que did not register when I changed the ink cartridges. The AiO would scan, but the computer side still thought it was out of ink.

Perhaps the latest software will fix your problem too.

Error code 1- 2036


I fixed my error code 1-2036 by going to the "Configure Settings" in the AiO Home Center then selected AiO Printer changed to "Print Quality" to Draft and clicked OK.... Then I was able to Scan with no errors. I think the config settings were corrupted some how and this resaved them properly.
if that doesnt help
Go to Control Panel
Double Click on Printers and Other Hardware
Double Click on Scanners and Cameras
Double Click on Kodak 5100 AiO
Click Next
Read and follow directions
if both the solutions doesnt help... its time to call kodak

Kodak 5100 AIO won't print after cartridge change


the red blinking light indicates that your printer wont recognize your ink carthridge. you can try to reseat the carthridge and the printhead. to remove the printhead just press on the release tab which is located on the upper left corner of the printhead wall. If this will not correct the issue, you need to call their technical support hotline. maybe the carthridge is faulty or there is a problem on the printhead. their hotline no is 1 800 421 6699

Can't load the Kodak AiO Homecenter software


Go to the control panel and uninstall it. Don't just delete the program from windows explorer. Reinstall everything. It SHOULD work fine.

Problem with scanner


Hi,
Try to get the scanner operating by using a programme such as paint (open file from scanner or camera) or powerpoint (insert picture from scanner or camera). I have used this with success in the past. I have not used the scan button so I cannot advise you on this.
Hope this at least gets you going with scanning a copy of something and once you have it in these programmes you can at least print it and make some changes that you desire.
Hope this helps.
Youre right - they are a great printer!!
