Question about Kodak EasyShare Photo Printer 500
When printing 4x6, only have of the photo prints and the other half does not transfer to the photo page. When looking at the printer, the right half of the photo does not print when the paper comes out of the Kodak EasyShare.
Ok, this is what I found when I finally broke down and decided to take it apart. There is a bar with two cams on either side of it that are used to engage the print head to the paper. The smaller cam on the bar has cracked and no longer pushes the print head down on that side of the paper, causing the half picture. What I did was remove the cam from the bar, glue it back together, then wrapped it tight with thread (only one layer, there is a clearance issue), and put epoxy around the thread(to help reinforce the cam). Once the epoxy had cured, I reinstalled the cam to the bar. The cam did crack again, but the thread and epoxy held it tight to the bar. After reinstalling the bar and putting the rest of the printer back together, I crossed my fingers and tried to print a picture. Tada!! It worked!! I have since printed a few more and have not had a problem yet. It may only be a temporary fix, and nothing could be better then the original replacement part (if you know where to get it), but this has worked for me. Good luck and be patient.
