Question about Kodak ESP 3 Multifunction Printer/ Copier/ Scanner
My black ink has been low so i bought a new cartridge and installed it. However, the printer/computer still says it needs to be replaced and it is still not printing my documents out. I ran a test page, and it printed the black ink so i have no idea what is going on.
There is a sensor in the cartridge which contacts with the printer. See it is clean from dirt. Try reseating the cartridge. If you use cheap cartridge rather than genuine then this could happen.
Check for updates in the Kodak website appropriate for you.

Here are the things you will be asked to try if you call support. They may fix the problems as well. Taking the printhead out and putting it back in is the big helper.
Remove the black and color ink cartridges.
Right above where the black ink cartridge was, in the top left hand corner of the printhead, push up towards the ceiling and you should be able to push a button that releases the printhead.
Place the printhead right back into the printer and push straight back on the back wall.
You should hear a loud snap.
Replace the ink cartridges which should snap as well.
Close the printer.
After about a minute or so the printer will ask you to do a calibration.
Insert a paper and press start.
Scan the calibration sheet.
After that, in the menu, do a printhead clean.
(If this is a 5100, do it in the home center ->? in the top right ->Maintainence ->Clean Printhead.)
Do one basic and one deep.
Print a demo sheet to see if anything has changed.
If the picture looks better, continue to do cleans.
In the event that it does not, the printhead will need to be replaced and since the printer is still under warranty, Kodak specialists will try to overnight you a printhead.
The whole process is short and free.
The number for Kodak AiO Support is 1 800 421 6699.

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

you may try to clean the printhead and recalibrate the printer. if this will not correct the problem, you need to replace the printhead. I suggest contacting Kodak technical support to have a replacement printhead.

Is this a genuine ink? If not then try removing and inserting a few times. If this does not work then unplug printer, leave for a few minutes then plug in and turn on. Some non-genuine inks (and some genuine) just do not ever work though.
