Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5300 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Lodak Easyshare 5500

On the print page, it has 'idle' in the status line. I have been printing photos but when I tried to print from Word 2007, and I've had this printer for awhile, for some reason it will go through the printing motion and dispense the paper but no lettering appear. But if I want to print an image, it will print. I wanted to print a letter. My email is: doris_matthews@comcast.net. Thank you Doris

More than likely doris you have an issue with the black text not printing. Press copy and photo at the same time. Look at the eyes of the kids in the picture. They're probably all white. Clean the printhead from the main menu. A deep clean. Print another demo. If it comes out the same, you need a new printhead. Call Kodak.

White lines on dark photo prints


White lines means some of the print head nozzles maybe blocked.
Try the deep clean print head cycles then do a test print. If this still does not fix the problem then a new print head is required.
Print heads are expensive and if your printer is old then maybe better to put your money towards a new printer.

I replaced the cartridge of my hp psc 1401, copied the test page that was automatically printed, but now I can't print anything. Copying works OK. I don't get an error message or blinking lights on...


what is the status of print job in the queue? whether it is showing printing or no status in the windows.
if the status is printing you delete all the print jobs and switch off and on .then try print something. if no status is there in the windows then you check whether the printer is off line .try make it online by right click on the printer icon then click on the use printer online.

It is printing the wrong colors. My reds are


Step one: Check the ink cartridges HP doesn't guarantee the quality or reliability of non-HP ink. If the ink cartridges have been refilled, try replacing them with genuine HP ink cartridges.If you have checked the ink cartridges and are still experiencing a problem, proceed to Step two. Step two: Print a test page
  1. Verify that there is plain white paper in the input tray.
  2. Press the OK and Help buttons simultaneously. A two-page Extended Self Test Diagnostic Page prints. Figure 1: Extended Self Test Diagnostic Pagec00728269.gif
  3. In the Print Quality Pattern section on the second page of the test page, look at the color blocks for any lines. Figure 2: Print Quality Patternc00728270.gif
  4. If the colors are still wrong in the Print Quality Pattern color blocks, print a document to determine if the issue has been resolved.
If you have completed all of the steps above and are still experiencing a problem, proceed to Step three. Step three: Check the printer settings
  1. In the software application you are trying to print from, click File and then clickPrint . The Print dialog box opens.
  2. Verify that your printer is selected and then click Preferences . The Printing Preferences dialog box opens.
  3. Click the Printing Shortcuts tab.
  4. The Printing Shortcuts tab lists most printing needs, but you might need to modify some of the options. Options on the Printing Shortcuts tab include:
    • General Everyday Printing
    • Photo Printing Borderless
    • Photo Printing with white borders
    • Two Sided (Duplex) Printing
    • Presentation Printing
    • Fast/Economical Printing
    • Postcard Printing
    • Hagaki Printing
    NOTE: These are general printing shortcuts with pre-selected settings.
  5. To change the settings from those available on the Printing Shortcuts tab, click the Features or Color tab. Options on the Features or Color tab include:
    • Print quality : If you are unhappy with the quality of your printouts, try increasing the print quality. To print more quickly, try decreasing the print quality.
    • Paper type : If one of the options matches your paper type exactly, choose it rather than Automatic.
    • Paper size : Make sure this matches your paper.
    • Print in Grayscale : Print a document in shades of gray.
    • Orientation : Specify how the document is positioned on the page.
    • Paper Source : Select the tray that you want to use for printing.
    • Two sided printing : Print on both sides of the paper.
    • Color Management : Specify the color space that the printer will use to interpret image data.
    • Pages per Sheet : Specify the number of pages in the document that will be printed on each sheet.
If you have completed all of the steps above and are still experiencing a problem, proceed to Step four.

Hpd4160 printer yellow light keeps flashing, status, "off line"


See this notice about the flashing light. Then see this article, particularly step 4. You may need to clear the print queue & restart the print spooler. Make sure you reboot your system. If that doesn't correct the issue, try a power reset as described here before uninstalling or reinstalling the printer software.
The printer uses your system memory to print from, and communication glitches do occur.
Good luck.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
