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.

SOURCE: My Kodak 5500 won't scan at all and I don't get an error message!

First thing I would do is download the latest software for your printer here:
http://www.kodak.com/global/en/service/downloads/dln_ekn033541.jhtml?pq-path=10624

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.

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.

How do I scan to computer?


Sorry For the late answer, but if you want to scan something into you computer in a .png or other format (In windows) click on the start button, and search "Windows Fax And Scan". Once open go to the top left corner and click "New Scan" It opens up a new page, and make sure to select the printer(or scanner) as the one you are using.

Doesn't print but will scan and print


Are you saying it will scan and copy but not print? Copy is a local process and Scan might be a local process (done by the device) Print requires the computer.

I would suggest you get the latest version of the ESP 5 print driver. Then, delete your present driver. Turn the computer off, disconnect the ESP 5 and turn the computer back on. Run the package you downloaded from Kodak and follow the on screen instructions.

This should fix your problem. If not ... let me know ... we can try other things.

Thanks for your visit and please come again.

I just bought A Kodak esp 3250 series AIO printer. I can print from computer, copy and all that but whenever I try to scan to computer or even preview scan I get a error saying :An error occurred while...


Try a new USB cable. Scanners require bidirectional communication with the computer and thus can fail when printer itself works. (If you use a print server or USB hub, try a direct connection.) Also try changing USB ports.

Another thing to try is to remove the TWAIN driver and reinstall it. This requires the original software CD from Kodak.
1. From your computer desktop, click Start > Run. (In Windows 7, type run in the search box then click on Run.)
2. Type %windir%, then click OK.
3. Double-click twain_32.
4. Right-click Kodak, then select Delete.
5. Insert the KODAK All-in-One Printer Software CD into the appropriate drive, then go to D: > printer > scanner.
NOTE: The CD is indicated by D: above. The CD drive may be a different letter on your computer.
6. Double-click aioscannr.msi, then follow the instructions to remove it.
7. Go to D: > printer > scanner, then double-click aioscannr.msi, and follow the instructions to install the file.
8. Open Home Center Software:
a. Select Scan Documents and Pictures.
b. Scan a document.

Unfortunately, if the error persists, the scanner may need service. Contact Kodak: http://www.kodak.com/go/contact .

I hope this helps.

How to print a regular document from Microsoft Word, Excel.


Instead of pressing the start button to print, you need to press the small ON/OFF button. The start button works to copy/scan. But to print, you will need to turn the printer on first. Once the printer is on, the computer should recognize it fine and allow you to print from your applications.

KODAK ESP-3 AiO Will Not Scan On Vista 64 Bit Ulitmate


I had the same problem and I got it to work. I have Windows Vista and Microsoft Office 2007 on my computer. Here's what I did...

Go to "Start" then "Control Panel".
-Click on "Programs and Features".
-Scroll down to Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007 - click on that and then click on the "Change" link above.
-A box will pop up, click on "Add or Remove Features" and then click "Continue".
-Click on the "+" next to "Office Tools"
-Click on the "+" next to "Microsoft Office Document Imaging"
-Click on the down arrow next to "Scanning, OCR and Indexing..."
-Then, click on "Run from my Computer"
-Next click on "Continue" at the bottom of the dialogue box and your configuration process should begin

Once completed go to the start menu and type in "Scan" into the search box. Go to "Microsoft Office Document Scanning" Once there, plug your scanner into you computer, chose what color you want your scan to be in, and click on the picture of the scanner to the right. To make my scans clear, I had to click on "Scanner..." and chose KODAK ESP AiO as my scanner even though I have a KODAK ESP-3 printer/scanner.

I hope these instructions weren't too confusing and I hope this helps some of you out! My scanner was causing me a lot of frustration for a while!
