Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5100 All-In-One Printer
How do you reset the chip in the new Kodak Ink Cartridges ?
I can refill the empty black ink cartridges ( Kodak # 1215581 ) - But, my 5100 Kodak Easyshare printer will not let me use it. It thinks it is still empty of ink.
I am not sure if it would be easy to refill the color cartridge - It has a compartment of some kind of clear coat - besides the normal selection of colors.
But it would be nice to be able to refill the black cartridge.
I believe that the color cartridge has a compartment of black ink in it also. So even if you did refill the individual black cartridge - you would still get quality color prints by continuing to purchase the Kodak color cartridges.
Just trying to save a little more money. We print a lot of different things.
Thanks ! We Hope That You Can Help Us Out !
Enjoy God's Blessings !
In Jesus' Love,
I've got a solution. We should find a way to file a class action lawsuit against these companies. Not just for ourselves, but for the environment itself. For years I've had issues with bad printheads and the ink costing more than a newer printer that comes with ink! That ink is toxic to the environment. I know places like Staples offer incentives to recycle them now. But what about the years before? Not to mention the idea of an entire printer going to a landfill since it's 'no good' anymore. Plastic produced from crude oil, logic boards silicon, lcd panels, steel roads, etc. Those are finite resources that don't just replenish themselves. What do these companies think will happen when those resources are exhausted and our planet is tainted with toxic chemicals? All the money in the world can't fix that! Nor will it fix what's already been done for decades. If anyone here knows a 'good' attorney willing to undertake this and is ready to have us sign up let me know. Knowing the ink is still in the cartridge that has to be recycled burns me. Knowing the companies that rob us blind, and most likely reuse those same cartridges, just to get even richer disgusts me. If our economy is in shambles why let these bastards push us further into the financial muck any further than we are already?!?!?!

The microchip slide out of the cartridge. Save one from a previous cartridge. When the new cartridge is showing low and you refill it from the top (by peeling off the Kodak sticker) pop off its microchip and slide the "old" chip in its place. The printer will see the cartridge as a "new" cartridge and begin counting down the print cycles.

Run don't walk away from Kodak Ink sucking printers. Ink get's low on black or color and will not print. No way to refill them you must buy new because of the chip not allowing any reset.

I have a Kodak Hero 7.1 Printer. It is my second one, because I returned the first one because of the Ink Heist. I had bought ink for it on line that I thought I would give away, but I found my same type printer at Arc Thrift and got it for half price. So I bought it and it had third party ink in it. The color was still with ink, but the black was out, but it still printed. So I realized that the answer to the Kodak robbery is to try off brand ink. In answer to someone Else\'s comment, I would love to get involved in a Class action suit. I think the layers will do it just for most of the winnings!

No spec data sheet found using Google for the chip.
Logic suggests that a chip with two connections has to be a resistive element that changes up or down over time. Scratched between the electrodes and came up with chip not recognized; used pencil graphite on scratch and came up with empty cartridge; used eraser and came up with low cartridge.
Best logical advice; get new cartridge and measure using ohmmeter then kludge a carbon resister into and old chip.
Pain in the *ss and I will probably throw a good sized firecracker into my printer because more fun.

Walgreens can't do it. I took mine there last year and they said that it can't be done.

If you take the cartridge to walgreens, etc... they can clear the chip. There is none for home use

Kodak's line of inkjet printers boast cost savings over other brands of inkjet printers. Like other printers, Kodak's print cartridges are managed by a microchip that takes inventory of the amount of ink in each cartridge and determines if cartridges are usable by your printer. While this safeguard is designed to protect your printer from being damaged by printing from an empty cartridge, you can bypass this feature by replacing your original chips with aftermarket chips. search with google.
