SOURCE: Replaced printhead and ink cartiages on a Kodak ESP.3

I had the same experience with Kodak when I called to get help with my printer. The tech was extremely hard to understand. After several times of trying to get assistance that I could understand, he hung up on me.I finally got them to send me an additional cartridge to replace the ink I had used trying to remedy the problem. I contacted the company and explained what happened. They have not even tried to contact me.Now it's doing it again. I'm finished with Kodak. I'll just take my chances with another company. Hopefully they will appreciate my business which Kodak obviously doesn't.

If issue persists,call kodak @ 1800 421 6699 and they will replace the printhead for you free of cost.Printhead is the part which holds the cartridges and has 4000 nozzles which sucks ink from cartridges.It Might have gone bad

SOURCE: kodak esp-3 printer will not print black

Routine maintenance and keeping full ink tanks will prevent this problem, however if you have the problem you can resolve it by doing the following:
1. Clean your print head using denatured alcohol solvent which can be purchased from most hardware stores. If unavailable, use 91% Alcohol (isopropyl alcohol (first aid antiseptic) which is available for less than a dollar at most Walmart pharmacy departments.

*Warning: You may want to use a pair of latex exam gloves as this is a messy process and can stain your fingers.
Time necessary 45-50 minutes
Supplies needed:
Isopropyl Alcohol or denatured alcohol
paper towels
latex gloves
sink, bowls and or basin
can of compressed air
very small screw driver
tablespoon or baby bulb type syringe
warm water

PROCEDURE:
1. Lift print head from printer. It pulls out easily because it is held in with the same down lever that holds the cartridge in place.
2. Put two layers of paper towels in the bottom of a dish to protect sensitive sprayer heads.
3.Put enough solvent in dish to cover the screens on which the cartridges sit when in use.
4. Take the two small screws out that hold the white ceramic piece
5. Gently, pry the ceramic piece back and away , to reveal the underside (No need to pull away the glued points on the sides.)
6. Gently, move head up and down to slosh solvent around it the best as you can. Use a table spoon or syringe to pour solvent over all orifices in the print head, turning it upside down and then back a few times.
7. Use canned air with a plastic straw to blow into and through all orifices, alternately sloshing/swishing and pouring solvent over head (be careful not to touch any of the holes, screens, or sprayer heads with anything)
8. Empty dirty solvent from bowl and replace with paper towels and clean solvent. Soak for approx 10 minutes. Rinse again with clean solvent poured directly on all parts, letting solvent overrun and fall into dish or basin.
9. Gently shake the solvent off the head, take it outside and spray with compressed air into all orifices to clear out and help evaporate any remaining solvent. Let sit on a clean paper towel for approx 20 minutes. (There may be a little ink bleeding out of the head, but once it dries completely it does not present any problems.
10. Reinstall head, cartridges and it will print like a new printer.

SUGGESTION: For many years of problem free printing, keep a double set of ink cartridges, one set full at all times. Whenever a cartridge runs out of ink, replace it IMMEDIATELY, with a new one or a refilled one. This gives the print head no chance to dry out and create clogged heads. Routine maintenance of cleaning the heads every 24 months does wonders for keeping your printer in new condition.

Hope this helps. .

SOURCE: purchased Kodak ESP 3250 yesterday. Not printing photographs.

Yes sounds to me like one of your ink cartridge is empty. Replace and try again.

SOURCE: my kodak esp3 will not scan it prints and copies.

I had the same problem and I got it to work. I have Windows Vista and Microsoft Office 2007 on my computer. Here's what I did...

Go to "Start" then "Control Panel".
-Click on "Programs and Features".
-Scroll down to Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007 - click on that and then click on the "Change" link above.
-A box will pop up, click on "Add or Remove Features" and then click "Continue".
-Click on the "+" next to "Office Tools"
-Click on the "+" next to "Microsoft Office Document Imaging"
-Click on the down arrow next to "Scanning, OCR and Indexing..."
-Then, click on "Run from my Computer"
-Next click on "Continue" at the bottom of the dialogue box and your configuration process should begin

Once completed go to the start menu and type in "Scan" into the search box. Go to "Microsoft Office Document Scanning" Once there, plug your scanner into you computer, chose what color you want your scan to be in, and click on the picture of the scanner to the right. To make my scans clear, I had to click on "Scanner..." and chose KODAK ESP AiO as my scanner even though I have a KODAK ESP-3 printer/scanner.

I hope these instructions weren't too confusing and I hope this helps some of you out! My scanner was causing me a lot of frustration for a while!

Www kodak com go support


We threw our 6150 into the trash (Florida does not recycle electronics) because it would not print correctly, even after we installed a new printhead and all new cartridges.

I recommend you cut your losses.

Why scanner is not scanning.


The very first thing to diagnose such issues is: make sure if your printer is communicating with your computer and you are able to print at least. You can try to copy some stuffs to make sure the printer/scanner is functioning fine and it's causing issues with computer. You should installed the updated driver/firmware as well.

Kodak esp office 6150 printing blank pages


Here's how I fixed my Kodak AIO 6150.
  1. 1. Remove cartridges
  2. 2. Remove the print head - lift up on the grey tab just above the bullseye - it'll pop right out - no tools needed.
  3. 3. Soak in alcohol - NOT RUBBING alcohol - Isopropyl 91% only for 1-2 hours - shake often.
  4. 4. Let it dry for at least 2-3 hours.
  5. 5. Reinstall everything. You'll get a new printhead message.

Cant seem to get the download needed for the installation process for my ESP 6150


Try this page: http://support.en.kodak.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/36460/kw/esp%206150/selected/true

Keep in mind, you may need to browse around Kodak's support site more if this is not the right driver page. Drivers are written specifically for your operating system. Each version of Windows will have a different driver to download, or if you have a MAC you will need to get the driver for your version of OSX.

Good Luck
