When printing my pictures at home the color does not appear as it does in the preview picture. The tones are off. I cleaned the printhead. It doesn't appear to be producing any of the blue tones.

The printed picture is not good. There is a pink tone to it. I have changed the colour and black cartridges but not much of an improvement. I use Kodak photo paper.


My first guess would have been low ink for cyan and yellow, but you said you have changed the cartridges. You may want to run a cleaning cycle a few in case there was cross contamination in the printhead making the colors look wrong. To perform a printhead cleaning hold down the Cancel and Copy/Resume buttons until the On/Off light flashes. Then release the buttons and the printer will run a cleaning process. Hold down Quantity and Cancel until the On/Off light blinks to print a test page. The printed test page should look like this:

If it matches these colors, then the printer is not the problem. Otherwise, you may have to replace the printhead, if you have had your printer for a while.

I hope this helps! Good luck!

Certain color parts previewed on computer don't print out


Depending on the software you are using to do the preview...( a word processor, photo software ..etc) the preview is just that...it simply lets you look at the document or picture to see that you have formated it correctly in the main program. You should not try to print from the preview...what you can do is exit the preview function and return to the main software. the go to the file menu and exicute the print command and or do the page setup for the picture or document.

Dull color


I would say phone or email Kodak as you may have a faulty printhead. If Kodak sayes you have a bad head they will airmail you one overnight and throw in free black and color ink tanks all free of charge.
I have read that some how in making the printhead a run got too hot in process and thus a bad printhead.
Hope this helps

Poor picture printing


Do not try to clean print head again and again, it consumes too much of ink.
Try reseting print head and then calibrate it.   after then check nozzles and align prinhead.   Now u can try cleaning printhead last time.
If it does not fix your issue , your printer needs to be replaced  (In case printhead has already replaced within 30 days)

I have a Kodak easyshare all in one printer 5100


You need to clean the printhead of the printer to solve that

issue. Because everytime you print, excessive inks are going

to the printhead that's the reason why it's clogging the

system up. That's because Kodak printers is using

"pigments" as inks that's why Kodak printers are producing

high quality prints unlike other printers - a photo printed from

kodak could actually last for about 100 years. Now back to

your issue, you need to clean the printhead from the printer

but not manually. You could clean it by going to the

software of the printer namely the KODAK HOME

CENTER SOFTWARE. You need to click the "?" mark

icon on the upper right corner of the software window then

under the General Links select Maintenance then choose

Clean Printhead. Do it at least twice and then try making

prints. If that still doesn't work try calling Kodak Technical

Support Representative: 1-800-421-6699

I hope I have been some of help. ^_^

Color is all wrong


Your pictures are coming out with a blue tint. Remove the color catridge and look at the bottom of it. the Yellow is probably green. If it isn't, trying performing a printhead cleaning through your home center. After that, calibrate the printer, you may see that on the calibration sheet, that colors are missing. Scan the calibration page and then try your printing your pictures. If that doesn't work, contact kodak tech support, you need a new printhead.

Here are the things you will be asked to try if you call support. They may fix the problems as well. Taking the printhead out and putting it back in is the big helper.

Remove the black and color ink cartridges.
Right above where the black ink cartridge was, in the top left hand corner of the printhead, push up towards the ceiling and you should be able to push a button that releases the printhead.
Place the printhead right back into the printer and push straight back on the back wall.
You should hear a loud snap.
Replace the ink cartridges which should snap as well.
Close the printer.
After about a minute or so the printer will ask you to do a calibration.
Insert a paper and press start.
Scan the calibration sheet.
After that, in the menu, do a printhead clean.
(If this is a 5100, do it in the home center ->? in the top right ->Maintainence ->Clean Printhead.)
Do one basic and one deep.
Print a demo sheet to see if anything has changed.
If the picture looks better, continue to do cleans.
In the event that it does not, the printhead will need to be replaced and since the printer is still under warranty, Kodak specialists will try to overnight you a printhead.
The whole process is short and free.
The number for Kodak AiO Support is 1 800 421 6699.
