Contact Kodak support from the Kodak webpage. Do the chat online. Sounds to me that it is the printhead. They may find that the printhead needs to be replaced. I did it today and they are sending me a new printhead plus spare ink cartridges for free (2-3) days.

When printing a photo has a yellow/green tint. All other functions work it prints and scans great. Just have a problem with printing photos.


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.

My Kodak 5100 printer has been great. Even though


Clean the printhead, then print a demo sheet.
  1. Verify that inkjet paper is loaded in the paper trays.
  2. On your desktop, start the KODAK All-in-One Home Center, then select the Help [?] icon.
  3. From the Help menu, select Maintenance, then select Printhead Cleaning. The On/Off light flashes green during the cleaning procedure.
  4. When the On/Off light glows a steady green, press Photo and Copy simultaneously to print a demo sheet.
Is the Demo printout giving the same result?
If so, you may need to replace the printhead. This is a very common problem with this model.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Can print paper but photos have green tint


If you refilled the ink cartridges, this can happen. Kodak uses pigment based inks, the others use dye based inks. Also, make sure your printer is set for normal photo printing, rather than special effects.

Redish tint on pictures


your printhead needs to be replaced because, most likely, the jets that shoot the ink got blocked because of the remaining ink from your last printing session. 

Just go ahead and go to kodak.com/go/itg , follow the troubleshooting and have your printhead replaced, or call their support center on 1 800 421 6699, and have them help you out.

Color is all wrong


Your pictures are coming out with a blue tint. Remove the color catridge and look at the bottom of it. the Yellow is probably green. If it isn't, trying performing a printhead cleaning through your home center. After that, calibrate the printer, you may see that on the calibration sheet, that colors are missing. Scan the calibration page and then try your printing your pictures. If that doesn't work, contact kodak tech support, you need a new printhead.
