Hi,

Remove the USB and un-plug the printer. wait 5 mins.

Reboot, wait till your fully booted up, and at the desktop.

plug the printer in, switch it on,

Jack it to the Pc,( last job )

Press the F5 function key a few times to flush the Pc,

The computer should recognise the device
Making the " bing " noise.

If not, test the USB port with another device.

Should be good now

Regards
Richard.

When printers USB cable is plugged in it is not recognised. Driver installs ok butcomputer does not communivate with printer.


Unless your printer main board has failed, the only reason that a USB connection would not communicate is if your printer is turned off or if the USB printer cable or connection is faulty. Try connecting other equipment with the cable and see if that gets recognised by your computer also try connecting to a different USB socket on your computer.
Hope this helps.

The computer and printer are not connected - check the Device Manager to see if the printer is listed as well as its' driver. You must install the driver in order for the computer to communicate with the printer.

Need help installing kodak esp-5 printer . I just bought an hp pavilion pc series 2159m. I cannot get printer to work.


Get the software/drivers from Epson http://www.kodak.com/global/mul/service/downloads/DownloadLookup.jhtml?pq-path=12998/12999&product=EKN035324

If you have installed the drivers before connecting the printer to the computer, try a new USB cable and plugging into a different port. If you use a print server or a hub, go for a direct connection. Make sure the printer is online and has good ink.

I hope this helps.

(btw: pavilion 2159m is just your monitor so what OS does your computer have?)

Hi. I can help you connect your wireless ESP 7 to your Mac laptop.

The first step is to connect your printer to your wireless network. Navigate to the menu on the LCD of the printer and select Network Settings/WiFi Setup Wizard. The blue WiFi LED should be illuminating steady if the printer is connected to your WiFi network.

The second step is to add the WiFi printer to your Mac using the Print & Fax System Preference...
1. Under the Apple Menu, select System Preferences
2. Select Print & Fax
3. Click the "+" sign to add a printer
4. Select the Kodak ESP 7 listed with the Bonjour connection
5. Click the Add button.

The final step is to verify that you are printing to the WiFi printer when you attempt to print. In the Print Dialog box, verify the selected printer is named "KodakESP7+1234" where the last four digits are unique to your printer. If the printer you have selected is "Eastman Kodak Company KODAK ESP 7 AiO", then you are attempting to print using USB and this will not work unless you have a USB cable connected.
I hope this helps.
