Make sure your printer is installed. Click start. Click Printers and Faxes. Check that the default printer is you printer. Also check your manual to do a self test. This will check that your printer itself works and that the problem is really between your computer and printer. Hope this helps

When printed document is sent to printer, it prints with dark lines below each line of print often obscuring every other line of print .


  1. When connected by a USB cable, reseat both ends of the cable going from the computer to the printer.



  2. When connected to a wired or wireless network, make sure the network is working correctly and that the printer is connected to the network.
  3. (to make sure the printer is on the network, print a network set up page, for more information on how refer to the user's guide, refer to the Downloading and Viewing Printer Manuals section for information on how to download and view the user's guide).


  4. Restart the computer.



  5. Turn the printer off.



  6. Unplug the printer power cord from the A/C outlet or surge protector and wait at least 30 seconds.



  7. Plug the printer power cord back into the A/C outlet or surge protector.



  8. Turn the printer back on.



  9. Make sure the desired printer is set as the default printer.

Printer not Printing


well this is the software issue till i can understand. to be sure that it is purely software issue try to copy from your printer itself and see if that is not the printer's fault.

if its not then:

Remove printer's USB cable from your computer

delete the Printer's Icon from your control panel/ system preferences> Printers and faxes/ printers

now uninstall the software of kodak and reinstall the the software from www.kodak.com/go/esp3downloads

after software installs then plug your printer back in and wait untill it get installed on your system

try to print it again and see if you can print

Printer goes through the motions but text does not print


Let's first test the printer independant of your computer:
Try printing a test page using the instructions here: http://www.ehow.com/how_2006016_perform-test-epson.html. I hope your model printer is listed there. If not, try to find instructions specific to your model in your model's user guide or elsewhere on the internet.

If this works and printing from your computer doesn't, then:
(???Bad print drivers???) Reload the print drivers on your computer.
(???Bad cable???) Try replacing the printer/USB cable that connects this printer to your computer.
(???Bad USB port???) Try using a different port to connect the cable to your computer.

If none of this works you either have a faulty ink cartridge or a more serious issue with the printer. Depending upon the model, unfortunately, it might be cheaper to replace than repair.

CX3810 printer will not print


Take out the cartridges from the printer, put them back.

Remove the printer completely from your computer. Reboot. Re-install the printer.

Try to print again.

It sounds like your print heads are shot.
