Easy Share printer Dock series 3

Recently the printer dock, which up to now has printed photos perfectly, only prints half of the photo- it cuts off the top portion. I recently replaced the cartridge, but it has not corrected the problem.

    I have the same problem! It used to print beautifully now it's only 1/2 a page. I changed the print cartridge twice and used a new set of sheets to print, cleaned rollers, etc. but it still continues.

The problem is most likely a broken plastic lever on the end of the shaft that moves the print head. The plastic lever is keyed to the shaft by a flat on the shaft. The plastic has a tendency to split at the edge of the flat, resulting in the lever slipping on the shaft. This in turn results in one side of the print head not contacting the paper with sufficient pressure. The other end of the shaft has a thick plastic sector gear which is much less likely to break.

I fixed mine by making a clamp from a metal spacer (made from split tube about 1/8 inch long) and force fitting it over the part of the plastic lever that fits on the metal shaft (on the end towards the inside of the unit). There is just enough clearance to do this without hitting the print head frame.

To remove the plastic lever, first remove two screws from back of unit, then pull up on top of unit, unplug two ribbon cables from circuit board and remove top. Then unplug two remaining ribbon cables from circuit board, and three screws holding circuit board. Lift circuit board and fan/fan-holder as one piece. Finally, disengage tab on plastic retainer on end of metal shaft, rotate tab straight up and lift shaft up and to the side (may require a little wiggling). The plastic lever slides off the metal shaft.

    If the boundary between the blank half and the printed half is a sharp line, a wire to the print
    head may be broken or disconnected. If the boundary is irregular
    (wanders up and down an 1/8 inch or so), the problem is most likely a
    broken plastic lever on the end of the shaft that moves the print head.

Printer dock does not pick up paper.


Try to clean the rubber rollers with lint free cloth. Make sure you are using Kodak Xtralife paper. At the back of the paper it should say "Xtralife".

Yes you can, but you need an appropriate USB cable----takes a regular USB type A on one end and a USB type MINI B (but NOT MICRO) on the other end. Kodak has one for 25 bucks. Stop at your local WalMart and pay 15 bucks or order it from Walmart.com for under 5 bucks (plus shipping of less than 3 bucks):

Just got a cable for similar use myself......Happy printing.
