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.

Hi


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.

Hi,

Common problem with Kodak print heads. And since you're done with the troubleshooting and is likely very familiar with the printer and its problem, definitely the print head is going bad again.

Thanks

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.

Error code "6203" can be resolved as follows:
First, you need to open the access door of the printer and disconnect the power adapter from it.
You then need to wait for at least 30 seconds for the printer to get reset.
As a next step, you can connect the power adapter back to the printer.
You can turn on the printer, if required. Once the printer gets powered up, a message "Printer access door open" gets displayed.
Once this message gets popped up you can close the access door of the printer. get more help for Printer Error Code 6203

Clean the gold section of the print cartridge's with a wet paper towel.
Also clean the gold surfaces where the cartridge meets the printer.
Wipe the contacts clean with a dry paper towel once you get no ink back on the wet paper towels. Allow about an hour for the printer to dry.
Reinstall the cartridges and try printing.

Hope This Helps.

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.

Replacing the printhead If your printhead is damaged or broken, you may replace it yourself.
  1. Make sure your printer is turned on.
  2. Open the printer access door by lifting from the recessed hand-holds on the sides of the unit. autourg00977009id2130369.jpg
    The printhead moves to an accessible position for handling the ink cartridges. The ink cartridges are seated in the printhead.

  3. Pinch the latch on the ink cartridge with your thumb and forefinger and lift it out of the print head. Remove both ink cartridges.

Have you tried "fanning" the paper before loading it? This fixed my problem after a 6 hour battle, downloads of all firmware and restarting infinity times.

Kodak EASYSHARE... • Answered on Mar 28, 2021


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.

I needed to reload my AiO Home Center software and no one seemed to have the correct procedure. Maybe if you remove & reinstall yours it will resolve your problem. This procedure worked for me on my XP-machine:
1. got to Control Panel/Printers&Faxes and delete the printer
2. go to your Hardware/Device Manager/Universal Serial Bus Controllers, right-click on USB Composite Device and select Uninstall
3. go to Control Panel/Add/Remove Software and remove the EasyShare software
4. disconnect the cables from the Printer
5. download from Kodak.com the program "install_aio.exe"; run the program
(I selected only AiO+EasyShare+Software Updater to load)
6. followed the prompts after the sw installed to reconnect the Printer cables
7. rebooted

WORKED for ME !

The problem you are all having is with the print head (The black tray that your ink cartridges sit in).

Most of the time a simple cleaning of this will correct the problem, if it does not then you will have to call Kodak support and they will send you out another print head.

But lets try and see if we can get your troubled one to work again by following these steps...

1 - turn printer on and open the lid as if you were going to change the printer ink cartridges.

2- when the ink tray moves into the center and stops, remove both the black and color cartrdiges from the print head.

3- To remove the print head simply place your left thumb inside the head all the way to the left facing up and pinch the upper left lip of the print head to release it, then pull the entire tray out with your other hand ( there is a release inside the tray above the sticker of a finger and bullseye to the far left in the upper left corner inside the tray)

4- With the tray now removed be sure to look at the bottom and you most likely will find a build-up of black ink... clean this off using DRY paper towel as much as you can.
I used rubbing alcohol but if you do this make SURE it is completely dry before reinstalling.

5- Once you have cleaned the print head reinstall it in reverse fashion than you removed it, if you installed it right you will hear a solid CLICK noise.

6- replace the ink cartridges you removed if they still have ink in them and then close the printer lid.

7- You may get a notice that there is a new printer head and or cartridges and it will want to align and or calibrate the printer...be sure to do this!

8- Once the printer is recalibrated hit the menu tab on the printer and choose " clean ink head"... Do a deep cleaning 2 times!

9- Now try to print something that contains something black like a text document. If it works you are all set, if it did not then you will need a new print head from kodak. simply explain that you did the above steps and it did not work so that you can avoid support trying to run you through all this. They will send you a new one in 2 days.

Hope this helps and good luck!
