Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5100 All-In-One Printer

New Kodak EasyShare 5100 will not print!

I have a new Kodak EasyShare 5100 that will not print. I have installed new firmware, installed the software from both the website and the CD, and used the Kodak clear install utility with no luck. I get the "spooling" status window and the on/off light blinks as if it's going to print. After about 30 seconds I get a "printer not responding" window and the light stops blinking. This process will repeat on its own until I cancel the print.

I am running Windows XP Pro SP2. I have tried different cables with no luck. I have also tried other printers in the same USB port and they work fine.

Furthermore I have successfully installed the printer on my notebook computer and it worked flawlessly. There is obviously something with the software on my desktop that is hindering the printer.

    My problem is that my 5100 will not print pdf files - although it did once! It just sticks at the spooling stage, It will print Eudora e-mails and Word documents well. I am using the Foxit pdf Reader 2.0. I will install Adobe and see if that solves the problem.

    About once a week I get an error message that the printer is not responding. Then I delete the installation and reinstall the printer. After I do that the printer will work again for about a week.



    There is obviously something wrong with the Kodak software.

You might have to reformat your hard drive as there is something in your OS that is hindering the printing.

I just installed a new Kodak ESP 5210 printer. It will not print out documents, it will copy and scan though.


OK, did you install the Easyshare software first before installing the printer? I've experienced technical problems with my Kodak camera when I do not have the Easyshare software installed.

Also, how did you install the Kodak ESP 5210 printer? Did you use the driver from the Kodak.com website, or the CD that came with it?

Good luck on getting the Kodak ESP 5210 printer to work on your computer system.

Printer will not print in black. I do not use the Kodak EasyShare 5100 very often, and the black ink will not print, despite fitting a new cartridge.


Try reinstalling the software. If you are using the disc it came with make sure you check web installation. Do not plug in printer until told to do so.

2 Problems: 1) Unable to get printer to print from desktop; 2) Kodak SW won't install on laptop


Download and install the new software and printer firmware from kodak.com (link below - firmware and software is the same for all the 5000 units). Do not use the CD, and Uninstall all previous versions before installing the new software you download from the site.

I hope this helps. If you still have problems respond to this message with what happens and I will try and get you more help

Installation


I work for kodak and this is actually a very easy fix.
The MAC OS 10.4.11 won't install off the cd only the website.
The cd sees that the OS is 10.4.1 not 10.4.11 just a glitch and the fix is installing from the website.

And no you need at least 10.4.8 to run the kodak printer on macs.
