You will have to uninstall and reinstall the software so run the clear utility to uninstall the software from www.kodak.com/go/clear and unplug the USB cable for the printer and then reinstall the latest software from www.kodak.com/go/downloads ........also try and use the printer in standalone mode that is try and copy something and check there is no hardware issue.........coz if it does not copy then it could be a hardware issue......let me know if this was helpful...........

    I just had the same exact problem after updating the software/firmware. I tried the above and it didn't work for me. Kodak is telling me that my printer is bad, but it was working perfectly fine before I installed the update. Any other suggestions?

Kodak ESP3 not printing


Don't have a solution but can confirm this printer seems to be full of bugs. I have reinstalled software twice which gets the printer going for a very short time only. It does not recognise the Kodak ink cartridges..! Very frustrating.

Kodak AiO home Center will not open


My son has the same model and issue. I had him go to http://www.kodak.com/global/en/service/downloads/dln_ekn034524.jhtml?pq-path=12667 and get the latest software and firmware update.

Make sure to use the dropdown to select your operating system. The page defaults to XP.

The software is a new version of the AIO home center.

The firmware installer updates the physical printer. Before you run this program be sure to read and understand the instructions.

If both ink cartridges have good levels of ink, and you keep getting the clean the print head issue after updating both the software and the firmware, then call Kodak support. 1-800-421-6699, 7 A.M. to midnight Eastern time, 7 days a week. They will ask you if you put in new cartridges and installed the updates for the firmware and the AiO centre software. Be patient. They will get a solution for you.
