SOURCE: new ink cartridge but not printing green on esp 5 kodak all inone

you need to use the head cleaning tool in the printer properties, youll need to keep running it untill it runs clear and it uses alot of your ink while it does it.

youll find the cleaning option if you go to your
start/settings/printers and faxes, right click on your printer and go to printer preferences then maintinence

SOURCE: have a Kodak all in one 5500...black cartridge

Just use their website and walk through the step by step then order a new head. No cost to you, 3 to 5 business days later you have your problem solved. Bottom line; use KODAK cartridges.

SOURCE: errors on my Kodak ESP 3250

error 3501: STATUS_ERROR_UNIT_OPENED_WHEN_IDLE. You probably had it open when you inserted your cartridges.

Error 3502: STATUS_ERROR_MAIN_PAPER_TRAY_EMPTY. You must have inserted some shortly after you turned the printer on for the first time so don't worry.

Error 3609: STATUS_ERROR_UNIT_OPEN_WHILE_PRINTING. This is also another basic function on the printer.

I would recommend not looking at the errors on a printer test page as they show all errors that come up on the printer, even if they are not important.

Hi,

According to your problem first check your printer setup. You may have to change the black ink cartridge. But first clean the head of the printer and align the cartridges.

I have an all-in-one Kodak ESP 3250 printer. Bought it 4 months ago. I'm interested in printing only in black, but now the color cartridge has emptied and it won't let me print with the black cartridge...


The KODAK All-in-One Printer uses an advanced built-in printhead. The system is designed to provide excellent image and text quality, while eliminating the need to purchase new printheads every time you replace ink cartridges, and saving you money. The printing system requires that both the black and color ink cartridges be installed to print. If either cartridge is not installed or is out of ink, the printer or printhead will not print correctly.


Install the color a new cartridge, avoid damage to the print head.

Clean the gold section of the print cartridge's with a wet paper towel.
Also clean the gold surfaces where the cartridge meets the printer.
Wipe the contacts clean with a dry paper towel once you get no ink back on the wet paper towels. Allow about an hour for the printer to dry.
Reinstall the cartridges and try printing.

Hope This Helps.

DONT REFILL CARTRIDGES!!!

Most new cartridges are fitted with page count chips.

The chips blow after a certain amount of pages.

So just filling the cartridge with ink wont help

Ink level data is stored in a chip of the cartridge. Once the cartridge is empty, ink low message will appear eventhough you refill the cartridge. You need to deactivate ink level detection function to continue printing in case of usage of refill ink .

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

Kodak esp 3250 won't print black. Changed cartridge and still won't print black. Just installed new printer.


I fixed my ESP 3250 print problems by removing the cartridges and print head. Using a Q-tip and warm water, added drops of water to each of the print head ink wells until the water / ink from the wells bled thru onto a cleanex. Did this several times. Dryed the print head fairly well. Then added a drop of water to each cartridge for each color. Reasembled and ran an alignment and to my surprise, it works! I hadn't used my printer in a while, so the ink had dryed on the felt for both the print head and cartridges.......
