Question about Kodak ESP 3 Multifunction Printer/ Copier/ Scanner
I can Print and copy but I get a "Scan to computer failed" message on the window of the printer.
Scanners are moody. Make sure the usb to the printer is plugged into the same port in the computer every time. You may have to uninstall and re-install the printer.

First thing I would do is download the latest software for your printer here:
You can see there is a firmware upgrade however I would avoid that until you exhaust all other options as there is a chance you will brick your printer.
The download is large so make sure you pick the correct operating system for your PC, ie XP, Vista etc.
The grey printing can be solved by going to your printing preferences and adjusting the toner save options. You can also go to the product manuals from this page.
If the download is too large you may want to try using FixMyDriver.com and try the DriverCure application to see if you can update only the scanner driver.

SOURCE: My Kodak ESP 3 Won't Scan
Did you install the full software driver for the all-in-one? The drivers are here: http://www.kodak.com/global/mul/service/downloads/DownloadLookup.jhtml?pq-path=9103/12666/12667&product=EKN034524
Next try a new USB cable and plugging the unit into a different port. If you use a print server or USB hub, try connecting directly to the computer. Scanners need bi-directional communication with the computer and thus are likely to have issues even if the printer doesn't.
Can the scanning software on the computer initiate the scan? (That is in the full software package. Alternatively Vista came with Paint and File> Import from Camera or Scanner > New Scan.)
I hope this helps.
