Most likely your print head is clogged, there are 2,00 some nozzle's in it. If the printer is not used for a moderate amount of time the ink can dry up and cause a clog in those nozzle's. You can try doing a printhead clean from the main menu, or homecenter->?->maintenance. Then after that do a calibration, print a demo sheet to see if there is any improvment. The printhead clean pushes ink through the nozzles to try to clear clogs. The calibration scans those nozzles to see which are avalible to use, and makes sure that all the avalible nozzles are being used. If this does not fix the problem you most likely need a printhead but you will have to call kodak; as they are not avalible in stores. Also you can try updating your firmware from kodak home center, or www.kodak.com/go/downloads

Kodak has had problems with the print heads on these printers. Call their Customer Support at 1-800-421-6699, 9 A.M. to midnight Eastern time, 7 days a week. They will probably ship you a replacement print head and cartridges.

Changed ink and printer wont print on the paper. Printer thinks it is printing but there is nothing.


You need to go to the Kodak Easyshare website, give your printer model and serial number and they will send a new printhead. Takes about a week from NY.

When I print photos they come out bad


I would start addressing the issue by checking the 'properties' setting when printing and making sure that the right type of paper is selected. You can also adjust the quality of printing at this stage and see if setting the quality to a high level will help.  
Good luck!

Can print paper but photos have green tint


If you refilled the ink cartridges, this can happen. Kodak uses pigment based inks, the others use dye based inks. Also, make sure your printer is set for normal photo printing, rather than special effects.

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.

Easyshare 5100 not printing on correct side of paper


Load a single 8x10 page and press Copy + Cancel until the printer feeds the paper. It will spit it out blank. Try printing another photo. Make sure Kodak logo faces up when you load it

Printing photos


Check the settings in the application you're trying to print from. Make sure photo paper tray is not engaged if you are printing docs.There is a conflict with Wordperfect giving you the 'wrong paper size' message. You need to either upgrade the firmware or Wordperfect to the latest version
