Question about Printers & Copiers

Poor color on home printed photos

I have a Dell Computer. Kodak EasyShare 5300 Printer. I have had this printer since March 2007. I have been printing beautiful pictures until just recently. Now the color is off. I cleaned the printhead. re-calibrated the printer with the original calibration card. I even replaced both ink cartridges. On the calibration print sheet it doesn't show any blue as it did on the original print sheet when it was new. Any ideas what to do next?

Hmm..no blue, eh? that means that one of your print head cartidge lines is clogged. Sounds like time for a new cartridge tray, which you can access through www.kodak.com

Poor print outs of black ink - color is fine - I change the cart. and it stills gves me poor quality prints- I've tried the cleaning process from the menu - now what?


Kodak EasyShare 5000 series

Clean the print head then print a demo sheet.

  1. Verify that inkjet paper is loaded in the paper trays.
  2. On your desktop, start the KODAK All-in-One Home Center, then select the Help [?] icon.
  3. From the Help menu, select Maintenance, then select Print head Cleaning. The On/Off light flashes green during the cleaning procedure.
  4. When the On/Off light glows a steady green, press Photo and Copy simultaneously to print a demo sheet.

If the Demo print is bad- IE: no black, blurry print etc., then you may need to replace the print head:

We have had our Kodak Easyshare 5300 for about two years and I don't feel it has ever worked right. The photo print quality is poor, even though we've replaced the print head, put in countless new ink...


First thing to do is to try updating the firmware of the printer, just make sure that your printer is idle and has no error before proceeding, you can get the update at www.kodak.com/go/dowloads if you still have the same issue after that try deep cleaning the printhead 2x

Kodak EasyShare 5300- Won't print


I fumbled around a similar problem today. After printing photos you have to convert the printer to print to paper. If there is a green LED on the printer your are in PHOTO mode. Reach into the 4x6 printer and pull back the slide and the LED will go out. Now you can print on paper.

Pictures have poor color


this is common problem in this printer.many of the customers face this problem.the option to avoid this problem is to get your printer serviced every two months so the ink will not remain collected in the printer.and will work properly.
thanks.

try to do this first, try first to upgrade the firmware of your printer, by clicking help in your kodak AIO Home Center, then under General Links, click on maintenance, then under maintenance, click on firmware upgrade.

after the upgrade is complete, try to remove and then reseat both the ink cartridges. then calibrate your printer. and then clean the printhead deep clean. then print a demo page to see if there is any improvement in your printout.

you can call to Technical Support of kodak 1-800-421-6699 7am to 12am ET
