My esp 3 kodak printer now has a printerhead problem after a year of use. When the printer does it's power up check I get a error with the ink cartridges indicator light lit up. When I remove the ink...


Your printer needs a service, in other words the waste ink sponges need to be cleaned and dried. They then need to be replaced and the printer reassembled. Then the Epson counter resetting software needs to be installed.

With this software the printer can be set to zero, it will work perfectly after this bit of attention.
It is a good printer, it's nothing that can't be repaired.

A computer technician will be more than happy to service your printer for you.

All the best!

You have to clean the roller under the printerhead.
The big black one..

I suggest you install Diagnostics.

Go to motor test, and take the transport fast reverse. 300 sec.

Now you can clean the roller easy.

Service printhead error 108


Error Code(s) Printhead Color 

106, 111, 115, 171, 172 Cyan 
107, 112, 116, 173, 174 Magenta 
108, 113, 117, 175, 176 Yellow 
109, 110, 114, 169, 170 Black 

Power off the printer, take the Magenta cartridge out, take a lint and dust-free cloth or tissue and clean the hysinc mirror and the printerhead lens. I just did it and it took me three minutes to clean with toilet paper rolled up like a cigarette. 
My printer is back on line. The hysinc mirror and printerhead lens is in the printer not on the magenta cartridge. Reinstall the print cartridge and power on. This has happened to me before with a different color. 

here is the Lexmark c750 support link:

PrinterHead


A printer head is the ink cartridge. maybe you put the black where the color goes and color where the black goes. remember that black is to the right and color is to the left.
