Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5100 All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

Cannot scan Kodak ESP 3, cannot get Home center software to work.

I bought this darn printer off someone else, and they did not have the hardware so I downloaded it from Kodak. I have Windows XP and I cannot get the scanner to Work or the Home Center to work either. I have deleted the software and re-down loaded 3 times and still do not have any luck. Everything else on the printer works, the Copier works, the printer works, but I cannot scan. any solutions or is there any other software?

Just reply back if you are getting any error when you try to scan using the home center..........till that time you can use the scanner and camera wizard to scan..........in XP click on start button and all programmes and under accessories and in Vista under control panel............

SOURCE: kodak esp-3 unable to scan from home center,but able to print

If you are getting a 1-2036 error then there maybe an conflict between the Kodak TWAIN driver and another TWAIN device, most of the time it is with a flat bed scanner. If you have another All in One printer or scanner connected unplug it and uninstall its drivers. If the issue continues uninstall the Kodak software and unhook the kodak printer. Then download the kodak clear utility from HERE
After the utility runs and you restart your computer Re-install the Kodak Printer software and select WEB install to get the latest version.

Hopefully that will solve your Home Center scanning issue.

My Kodak ESP 3 Won't Scan


Did you install the full software driver for the all-in-one? The drivers are here: http://www.kodak.com/global/mul/service/downloads/DownloadLookup.jhtml?pq-path=9103/12666/12667&product=EKN034524

Next try a new USB cable and plugging the unit into a different port. If you use a print server or USB hub, try connecting directly to the computer. Scanners need bi-directional communication with the computer and thus are likely to have issues even if the printer doesn't.

Can the scanning software on the computer initiate the scan? (That is in the full software package. Alternatively Vista came with Paint and File> Import from Camera or Scanner > New Scan.)

I hope this helps.

Scanner doesn't work


You need to have the Home center software installed on your computer.The home center software has scanning drivers of the printer.If the printer says scanning,may be the drivers on computer are not taking commands from printer. Kindly mention the name of printer.Kodak has recently launched a new version of software 4.2 . It usually solves the issues relating to scanning and printing from computers.Download the latest version of software from www.kodak.com/go/downloads.

Home Center will not open...Can't scan


I'm not sure if you tried this but download the clear utility from kodak here: http://www.kodak.com/global/en/service/downloads/private/xp_vista_98_ClearUtility.jhtml?osXPor98=winXP
You will need to click start, go to control panel, click add/remove programs, uninstall the kodak home center, unhook the printer from computer, then run the clear kodak utility. Try then to reinstall after. I always install the drivers before the software by plugging the printer into the computer and running the hardware wizard in XP and pointing it to the drivers on the cd then I install the software after. If you need more help or clarification let me know. If this helped you please rate, thanks!
