What is the photo tray?

It is the holder for 6x4 photo paper. You will find it built into the top cover of the main A4 paper tray, on the right hand side. Mine has a transparent plastic cover. To load it, lift the cover and insert photo paper.
It is engaged by lifting the cover and sliding the tray into the printer. It is automatically recognised.

Why do my prints have a purple tint to them?

Most cauuses to this is dirty or failing print head.

Many people would say it was the sponge that is doing that but let me tell you if it was a full sponge you would not even see that color tint. Its the print head that is not mixing correctly due to being dirty or corrosive. Do you use refilled ink cartridges? If so you answer is iron clad your print head will need to be replaced and you need to put a stop to the refilled oslution, if not then the print head got dirty or is defective.

1. print head cleaner
2. new print head.

My kodak 5300 printer is printing with streaks


To resolve this issue you'll need to clean your printers cartridges. To clean it you'll need Q-Tip and alcohol. Turn off your printer and unplug it, now open the printer's front cover and take out the cartridges from their respective carriage. Now dip the Q-tip in alcohol and clean the cartridges with Q-tip. Also, clean the print head with Q-tip, use a paper towel if there is excessive ink inside the carriage.

Now let it dry and check if it is still giving similar issue. If yes then closely examine the print head for any kind of restiction like a piece of paper.

Bypassing printer warning that stops my printer

this one is one of my favourite hate printers... but, no you cannot disabel this function easy, you can "fool" this printer by following that procedure:

1. switch off your printer, wait few sec, switch it on
2. on your computer go to "start"
3. select "control panel"
4. select "printer and faxes"
5. right click on your "kodak easyshare 5300"
6. select "properties"
7. click on tab "services"
8. select "service this device"
9. click on tab "estimated ink level" - it shows estimated ink level after restart

you can use refill (very easy to do by yourself and about 1/3 cost of original replacements). and yes, you are right, cartridges do tend to dry out. i would suggest printing at least one page per week to prevent dry out of the cartridge.

as this particular printer will not work without both cartridges present. i would suggest to insert one empty cartrdge in colour slot and keep it there. on full cartridge use any sticky tape to prevent nozzle from drying, cover breather hole on the top of cartridge as well. when you need to print, remove tape from breathing hole first and then from the nozzle. this way you will prevent or at least slow down your cartridge evaporation ratio.

When printing a photo has a yellow/green tint

Possibly it is running low on Blue ink - because colors are usually a mixture of inks - for example green is made from blue and yellow - if an ink runs low it will print the available colors or substitute the next available color.Probably if it prints green yellow - then it has no blue available to make the right shade.

How do you remove the printhead of a Kodak EasyShare 5300 printer?

Clarification: Remove tanks(cartridges)first. You see the bullseye target with a finger pointing to it.
Above the bullseye sticker, there's a rectangular button. Press it in until printhead dislodges.
