Question about Kodak Esp 5250 All-in-one Inkjet Printer
A part of the roller mechanism at the back of the Kodak ESP 5250 fell off. How does this part of the roller mechanism fit at the back of the printer. This part is not feeding the paper through the printer. HELP

Ok, here is what you do to replace the gray paper feed at the back of the ESP 5250:
Hold the part with the flat side up and the rollers should be facing you. Note that there are 2 pegs on the right side, one smaller than the other. Now look at the back of your printer, you may need a flashlight, and find 2 square holes, one smaller than the other on the right side of the printer. Guide the pegs on the part into the
holes on the printer (right side) .Then push the left side of the part into the left side. Note that the part does not snap in. What you do is push the part to the left as far as it will go to hold it in place.
You should now be able to print.
You're welcome, have a nice day, Ken the fixit guy.

SOURCE: paper not feeding
Here is the solution, Inside the upright paper tray, on the bottom, there is a little blue "rubber roller", like 2" short, maybe 1.5" in diameter. That blue roller works as a grip, it feeds one sheet of paper to the main roller, which then passes it to other rollers, coronas, transfers, and such. That is the How, in short, Now the Why. That little blue roller wears down over use, like an eraser. It can not grip the paper, unless you fill the paper completely, or try to feed one page at a time, bending the paper to try to get it to grip.
Sometimes That doesn't work because it's worn down so much. Lexmark sells maintenance kits, which include the grip roller along with other replaceable parts. They may sell just that alone, idk.
Also another problem is the metal bar the roller sits on. That metal bar is connected the small gears on both ends. If those gears aren't moving properly, the rubber grip will not engage. A quick fix may be too lube the gears, or there may be something jammed in those gears.

I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy
paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print
button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it
will feed through the printer. The reason for this is in some cases I
have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud

SOURCE: paper feed problem.
I have just removed the panel where the power and USB cable lock into. It's a case of 1 screww from the rear and 2 catchs underneath the printer. From there you should be able to see the mechanism for the roller, a set of small white cogs. below that you should be able to see a very small spring which is acting as the pressure. Mine was still attached but as you say was pulling no pressure on the roller what so ever.
Find yourself a large-ish rubber band and slip the band over the whole mechansim. Best way is through the paper feed slot, slip it over the roller and then move it through to the area where you removed the panel. Position the rubber band as far down the cogs as possible, don't worry the cog casing prevents the band interfearing with the cogs. Now pull the band reasonably tight and with the other hand test the pressure of the roller. Adjust till you feel OK with it. Now put the panel back in with the end of the rubber band trapped and poking out from the panel behind the printer, holding it in place. Redo the screw and give it a try.
My first attempt found it a bit too restrictive and feeded to sheets at a time but adjusted it once and its back to normal. I know its a bodge but its a cheap one and it uses a rubber band, just how I fixed my Punto's windscreen wiper, £120 part or a rubber band once a month... Mmmm...

The problem sounds like your rollers have lost their grip. Remove the paper tray and tip the printer up. Push the red lever on the left of the printer down and you will see the feed mechanism with two wheels. Remove the rubbers on the wheels and turn them inside out. Replace them on the wheels with the worn side now inside and the 'sticky" side out. You should get at least another couple of years worth of use before you need to replace them.
