Check that all, printhead and ink are seated and contacts are correct.

Power down the printer and allow for a complete power on and self test.

My printer only prints color..have installed new black cartridge but still only prints color so installed another new black cartridge and still only prints color


Unlike most printers where the print cartridge and printheads are attached and sold together, the ESP 3 has a separate printhead from the cartridges.

Remoe both cartridges. Then look at the place where the cartridges sit. There is a latch you push down in the back. This will release the printhead to allow it to be removed.

Remove the print head

Take a cotton swap and a little alcohol and clean the printhead of all ink. Repeat this until it is totally clean.

Make sure the printhead is dry and clean of all ink and alcohol.

Replace the printhead.

Place cartridges in and test.

If this does not work, then you need a new printhead for this printer.

here is an example of how to remove and replace printheads for thsi unit.

to gt a new printhead you must contact kodak
http://www.kodak.com/go/contact

probably as expensive or almost as expensive as a new printer.

The seperate printhead from the carts are why kodak can have their ink so cheap. Those other brands cost that extra 15-20$ for the attached new head with each cart.

The red ink will not print regardless of maintenance tasks performed.


Hi.
You may need to replace the print head.
Sometimes the print head can be fixed leaving it in cleaning solution for a couple of days.
Before attempting repair I suggest to call Kodak at the number listed on the manual.

Won't print in black even with a new cart. when you try to print in color prints the back ground in a lite pinkish color and a shutter looking effect. please email me or call.865-637-9018 or 865-455-7179...


Clean your printer head and nozzle with printer utility software. Hope it would solve your problem, if not, open the black cartridge and fit it again and try to print again. Though, not work, perhaps problem in you black cartridge, so purchase an original cartridge. Thanks.

Yellow not printing on test print -


You either have a leaking cart or the print head has become cross contaminated. Remove all the carts and check the feed hole under each of them. Make sure they are the color of the ink in the cart. Remove the print head and, using a damp cotton bud (water ONLY!) give the print head a clean. DO NOT use the same cotton bud for all sponges.

If that doesn't solve it then take the print head to a re-inking firm and have it cleaned professionally. Won't cost much and will hopefully solve the problem.
