    WARNING: DO NOT BUY A KODAK PRINTER...

    That is, unless you enjoy constantly sending back your printer in exchange for a "new" one that is "problem free". I'm not sure, but I have a theory that all of the printers that break, they refurbish them and send them as "replacements" for your broken printer.

    I got an ESP 7 as a gift. About 2 days later, and after only printing a couple of pages, I got a "paper jam" error message that couldn't be resolved even after an hour of technical support assistance. I should mention that there was no paper in the printer at the time of this error. They were quick to send me a new one in exchange for the broken printer. I've had this 2nd printer about a month, and have used it very little. Yesterday I turned it on, and surprise, another "paper jam" error message popped up. There is NO paper in the printer!

    I called them and what do you know, they won't refund the money. They can only exchange it for yet another printer. That's right. NO REFUND! I told them that I would like a my money back to buy a more reliable printer from another company, and they couldn't and wouldn't accommodate my request. Wow. So now I'm stuck with Kodak printers that will surely break time and time again. Cheap ink...cheap printer. I wouldn't recommend this printer to my worst enemy...

    I'm on my second Kodak ESP7 printer since 12/25/08. The first time it printed 'blank' pages. Now I have the printer jam error that CAN'T be resolved. I'm tired of spending hours/days talking to customer service.

    I have the same problem, just got a ESP7 last week, and it's saying that there is a paper jam, but there definitely isn't. I haven't figured out any way to get this to clear up.

  • wildcat156 Apr 28, 2009

    I had the same issue after 6 days with the Kodak ESP 7. This was the last of multiple problems. My resolution was to return the printer to the retailer and exchange for a printer from another manufacturer.

    wow it work thanks.

  • art staschak Jul 16, 2012

    Thanks spangbr. This also worked on an esp 7

  • Paula Oct 28, 2012

    This worked for me - thank you!!!! It's bit of a struggle trying to make the printer heads go over to the right but you have to do it when you first turn on the printer and then quickly put your hand in and stop them coming back to the left. I pressed an ink pad on the left a few times and ended up with a back finger, but worth it because my printer is working fine!

I had the printer jam issue when there wasnt a real printer jam.

if you push the print cartidges off to the right, then reach in and push down on the cleaning head that is located on the left on the inside, it pops back down into place and voila, printer jam error message fixed.

    Thank you thank you thank you!!!! I just spent almost an hour on live chat with Kodak who kept telling me the same thing over and over and when he realized that it was 3 years old he told me that my only options were to buy a refurbished one or get a 30% off coupon. When I told him to send me the coupon but that I was going to buy a Dell he said ok well there's a survey at the end of our session have a nice evening.

Right here we go. As already said above somewhere, slide the ink cartridges to the right, with a torch look into the left hand side where they had been sat. If you can see a pad there which when pushed it springs up and down ( and you get a black inky finger) push a plastic lug type lever at the back of this pad towards the back of the printer and the pad will slide backwards to reveal two squeegee rubbers stuck up. that is now the cleaning head unjammed. shut the top press ok and away you go, Simples.

I've been online with Kodak support for one hour over this exact problem. They have no clue. Open/close paper tray, remove print cartridges etc. I was spending about $600 a year with Kodak on ink, but am now moving away. I am also recommending my team of 15 do the same: all who spend about the same amount on ink per year that I do. I was impressed with the printer....I have owned it for about 6 months, but there is a serious flaw here that Kodak is refusing to admit or help out on. I'm no longer a Kodak customer and recommend others to follow suit!!

I tried pressing down the cleaning head and it did not help, but in the process I discovered that the print cartridge had popped up in it's holder such that it interefered with the body of the printer as it tried to move from right to left. I pressed the cartridge down into its holder, unplugged the printer and started it over and it fixed itself.

    I own a Kodak printer and I also worked for Kodak and Cannon. Some models are better than others. The problem is they don't make printers to last HP flooded the market. Each company will have a few good models. Research and buyer beware! I'll take a Kodak any day over the other brands as I sit here trying to get my error code cleared.

I just checked to see if there was a jam. There wasn't. So I turned off the printer and took out the paper. I turned it back on and it asked for paper, so I put it back in and PRESTO! It started to print again.

Slide the print head cleaner towards the back of the printer, it gets stuck in the forward position. When stuck the print heads may not return to the left side of the printer. You can simply reach in on the left side and push the pad - print head cleaner towards the back of the printer. It should move a little ways, then close all lids and turn printer back on. If the heads are on the left opening the lid should cause them to move towards the center, then unplug the power and follow the steps above.

Mine was stuck in the far left position and I unplugged mine and stuck a butter knife in over the ink cartridges and pressed down hard,maybe even turned it a little to put more pressure on the tops of the cartridges,it worked just fine after I turned it back on.

Look for a loose or missing screw that holds down the right side of the front ink cartridge guide. If the cartridge cradle sences any resistance it will show up as a paper jam. The missing screw on my ESP 7 was the problem with mine. I had to drill a hole in the case to get a screw driver to the screw when I put it back in. The screw had fallen to the back of the printer and I found it when I removed the rear paper guide access unit.

We have a fellowes shredder. It got full and jammed. After cleaning and emptying it will not turn on. Is there a reset button? Thanks. Betn


We've found that when the container is overfilled with shredded paper, it will begin pulling shredded paper back into the cutters and jamming the machine. Sometimes reversing the machine will spit the paper back up, but if it is thoroughly jammed, only way to unjam it is to UNPLUG it first, then manually remove the paper from the cutters. Then, be sure to dump the container BEFORE it is filled with paper.

Why does canon MP258 printer with scanner can't scan japanese yen paper bill amount 10,000. I tried it over 10 times but it stops,. And when i tried US paper bill, it works well. I need some explanation...


When you scan with any scanner it utilised the software with "Optical Character Recognition functions, usually abbreviated to OCR -> OCR is a field of research in pattern recognition, artificial intelligence and computer vision." to scan and record the scanned object, sometimes it does not or cannot recognise certain symbols or characters because of man made software & hardware have its limitations too.

Hope it helps.
