Simply squeeze the tab on the front of the cartridges and lift. The printhead, depending on how old it is will be released one of two ways. A button located top left corner of the printhead, kind of upside down or a white tab dead center.

How do you remove ink cart.


To replace an ink cartridge on a Kodak ESP C310 follow these steps:

1) Make sure your printer is on.
2) Lift the printer access door, and wait for the carriage to move to a position where you can access it. The ink cartridges are located in the printhead.
3) Pinch the tab on the ink cartridge.
4) Lift the ink cartridge out of the printhead.
5) Remove the new ink cartridge from its bag.
IMPORTANT:To prevent the printhead from drying out, insert the ink cartridge into the printhead immediately.
6) Remove the protective cap from the cartridge.
7) Insert the ink cartridge into the printhead.
8) Press down on the ink cartridge tab until you hear a click.
9) Close the printer access door.

That completes changing the ink cartridges.

Thank

You just sent me a replacement printer and the instructions asked me to remove the printhead. I do not get insturctions on how to do this by going rto www.kodak.com/go/printheadsupport. I have removed...


Well, I don't think FixYa sent you the new replacement, but it was supposed to be sent by Kodak I guess. Anyway, here's the instructions on how to remove/install or in other words, how to replace the printhead.
  1. Verify that the printer is turned on and there are no error conditions.
  2. Open the printer access door and allow the printhead carriage to move to the center position.
  3. Remove the black and color ink cartridges.
  4. Disconnect the printhead by pressing the button in the upper-left corner of the carriage, then remove the printhead.nonontech_386.jpg
  5. Insert the printhead into the carriage.
  6. Place your thumb over the target label and push in firmly with your right thumb until you hear a loud snap.
  7. Check that the latch captures the printhead.nonontech_387.jpg
  8. Insert the color ink cartridge into the printhead.
  9. Press down on the color ink cartridge until you hear it click into position.
  10. Repeat Steps 8-9 for the black ink cartridge.
  11. Close the printhead access door.
*Follow upto step 5 to remove the printhead, I just included the remaining steps for your information.
Let me know if you need further help.
Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

How do I install a new printhead in my all-in-one printer? To replace the printhead in your all-in-one printer:
  1. Make sure the printer is on.
  2. Lift the printer access door and wait for the carriage to move to the access position.

    NOTE: For ESP 3250 and ESP 5250 all-in-one printers:
    • On the printer control panel, press Home.
    • Select Maintenance, then press OK.
    • Select Install Ink Cartridges, then press OK.
      If "Install Ink Cartridges" is not an available selection, upgrade the firmware.

  3. Remove any paper that may be loaded in the printer.
  4. Remove the black and color ink cartridges and set them aside.
  5. Remove the existing printhead:
    • For ESP Series Printers, unlatch the printhead by lifting the latch in the center of the carriage.

  6. Lift the printhead out of the carriage.
  7. Remove the new printhead from its bag.

  12. Insert the black ink cartridge into the printhead and press down until you hear it click into place.
  13. Close the printer access door.

    The printer detects the new printhead. Follow the instructions on the LCD to calibrate your printer.
    NOTE: ESP 3 all-in-one printers do not require calibration.

Kodak is not responsible for the compatibility or performance of either non-Kodak brand ink cartridges or refilled ink cartridges. You can purchase KODAK Ink Cartridges from the KODAK Store.

My printer only prints color..have installed new black cartridge but still only prints color so installed another new black cartridge and still only prints color


Unlike most printers where the print cartridge and printheads are attached and sold together, the ESP 3 has a separate printhead from the cartridges.

Remoe both cartridges. Then look at the place where the cartridges sit. There is a latch you push down in the back. This will release the printhead to allow it to be removed.

Remove the print head

Take a cotton swap and a little alcohol and clean the printhead of all ink. Repeat this until it is totally clean.

Make sure the printhead is dry and clean of all ink and alcohol.

Replace the printhead.

Place cartridges in and test.

If this does not work, then you need a new printhead for this printer.

here is an example of how to remove and replace printheads for thsi unit.
http://faqs.kodak.com/atg/faq/attachments/AUR1780-2.pdf

to gt a new printhead you must contact kodak
http://www.kodak.com/go/contact

probably as expensive or almost as expensive as a new printer.

The seperate printhead from the carts are why kodak can have their ink so cheap. Those other brands cost that extra 15-20$ for the attached new head with each cart.

My Kodak ESP 3 black doesn't work. I have ran


It sounds like you need a new printhead. The Kodak ESP 3 works in two stages, you have a printhead which is what transfers the ink to the paper then you have the ink cartridges. Change the printhead. You can try to clean it also, by removing all the inks. Taking the printhead out and soak it it warm water to dissolve the clog. Sometimes it will work.
