Easyshare are known for eating ink up,
the ink could be all gone.

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.

I have just unbloked a paper jam on my kodak esp3 priner.. now wen it goes to print the ink thing goes from left to right makes a horible noise and stops... its wont go back to the left :S:S


f you have tried the Kodak standard instructions for clearing the paper jam problem and it did not help try the procedure below. Works for esp 7.
1. Open the printing area of the printer (containing the ink cartridges).
2. The Ink cartridge holder should be to right side of track.
3. Look on left side, below the track for the cartridge that is used to
clean the print heads.It can be identified by a square black pad
approx. 1" sqaure that appears to be made of "felt".
If it is visible this is most likely your problem.
4. To correct problem locate the flat latching lever approx. 3/4" wide that
sticks up about 1/2" above the cartridge. It is locacted just behind
the "felt" square. Gently push lever toward rear which should free the
cleaning cartridge and allow the entir cartridge to move slightly
backward.
5. Close the top of the printer and cycle the printer off and back on.
If this is the problem, the "paper jam" error will now be gone.
This is such a simple fix I do not know why kodak does not inform
customers of this problem and how to fix it.

My printer will not print anything on the paper, I have checked and it has ink and is hooked to the computer by the USB port


Kodak ESP3:

Print a demo sheet.
1. Verify that inkjet paper is loaded in the paper tray.
2. Press and hold Scan + Copy/Resume simultaneously until the On/Off light flashes green.

Does a blank print appear? If so:

contact Kodak at 1-800-421-6699.
To expedite the call, provide the agent with the one of the following reference IDs - PH02 for image quality problems or BP01 for problems with blank prints.

If slowly and in increments, reference BP02

Paper jam


Yes, put it in the box and take it back, and don't look back. A paper jam is the least of it's problems. Wait till you keep track of the ink you use: 4 4X6 color pictures, and 85 black printed pages before you have to replace the inks. I know , I have one, 3 printheads replaced, and recently Kodak send a rebuilt printer. Kodak has big problems with this.
Get an HP printer.

Kodak ESP3 will not print over half of the time.


all you guys i know you are all frustrated but m just trying to be helpful to you all............First thing there are lot of compatible and look alike and refilled ink cartridges available for the kodak printers which actually screws the printer........i have the whole list of numbers on the ink cartridges which are genuine and i can give it to you all if you want........to fix your issue just try and do the print head cleaning from the home center software on computer to which this printer is connected......if still the same issue then just call kodak tech support as its a print head issue.........

Kodak ESP-3 Will not print calibration page. It goes thru the motions, spits out blank paper. This is supposed to happen prior to connecting to computer or installing software. Tried two printheads


I have severe and often different problems with my Kodak ESP-3 printer. Sometime it`s banding of the colors, then I`ll align the printhead and I`ll have a color problem or no color at all. I just talked to Kodak Customer Service by phone, 11 a.m. PST. After a few automated questions I had a live operator in less than 3 minutes. The service tech went thru some diagnostic steps with me and the printer and after about the 5th step determined I had a faulty printer head. If the green on/off light keeps blinking when it shouldn`t be, that is a sure sigh of faulty printer head, it means the printer is not recognizing the head. Kodak seems to be very aware of this problem and are sending me a new printer head UPS, free of charge. After reading some previous reviews I`m suprised how good the customer service was. Maybe I just called at the right time and got lucky.
