It sounds like youve pressed a bit heavy when fitting cartridge and disconnected the actual printhead itself. lift the lid as if to change the ink cartridge and check if you can clip the printhead back in place. It should be a case of simply pressing the chamber the cartridge sits in away from you until you hear it click.

SOURCE: kodak 5300 first said error 3802 now says print head missing or loose

I got the same Problem as listed above. This is the way how I was able to solve it:

  • Remove the color and black ink cartridges and the printhead. (the 5300 Printhead can be removed by pressing a button on top of the carriage and a slight pull --> for better instructions use this official Kodak PDF)
  • Try to clean the printhead and the carriage with a slighty wet cloth from ink. CAUTION!: better not touch the green electronic chip! Be carefull while cleaning.
  • Reinstall the printhead and the ink cartridges.
  • If the printer detects a 'new' printhead just do a calibration and your are done. If not try to print a test page.

Hope this solves the Problem. Best wishes

SOURCE: My Kodak ESP 3 all-in-one printer will not print

you may try to clean the printhead and recalibrate the printer. if this will not correct the problem, you need to replace the printhead. I suggest contacting Kodak technical support to have a replacement printhead.

SOURCE: print head missing, not installed

You probably have faulty print head, or try cleaning contacts on your printhead and in your printer.

SOURCE: I have an all-in-one Kodak

The KODAK All-in-One Printer uses an advanced built-in printhead. The system is designed to provide excellent image and text quality, while eliminating the need to purchase new printheads every time you replace ink cartridges, and saving you money. The printing system requires that both the black and color ink cartridges be installed to print. If either cartridge is not installed or is out of ink, the printer or printhead will not print correctly.


Install the color a new cartridge, avoid damage to the print head.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

Printhead Loose or missing. Install printhead or ink cartridges.


THE PRINT HEAD is the LASER that puts the image on the drum which puts the image on the transfer belt then paper or the drum puts on the paper. Missing the Print Head !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! did you get it second hand? Not something you can get at a store. Contact the company and see about it being repaired.

I have changed out my black ink cartridge and now it says Attention: Print head loose, missing or not installed correctly.


Had exactly the same issue - working fine until ink cartridge changed (kodak for kodak - not a copy). Then can only get 'print head error message'.
Multiple attempts to remove and re-install, power on/off etc. but can't shift the error message. New print head more expensive than a new printer!

Is their anything else I can do to fix the problem?


Go to settings, reset the type of picture and text to be printed. If this doesnt work you can now get a new printer for a great price on Amazon these days.

USELESS! I guess the life of an ESP 3 is up to a year, because after Kodak replaced my first ESP 3 with a second, I'm now having issues. It's also MOST frustrating that if one cartridge is empty and...


Regarding the empty ink cartridges, ink is a lubricant for the print heads. Some color ink is used even if you only print in black or viceversa. If you printed with a color missing, you could destroy that print head from the friction of running without ink to lubricate it. That's why most printers won't allow you to print with a color missing even if you aren't using it.
If you allow a color to go empty, the residual ink in the head could clog and become permanently blocked. You would never be able to print that color again. So always replace ink cartridges as soon as they are empty.

Regarding the printer not being able to detect the size of the paper, you probably need a firmware update. Here is the support information from Kodak website.

And I have to agree with you, printers don't have a very long life cycle, but you should get at least 2 years out of it! Good luck!

Kodak esp 3250 won't print black. Changed cartridge and still won't print black. Just installed new printer.


I fixed my ESP 3250 print problems by removing the cartridges and print head. Using a Q-tip and warm water, added drops of water to each of the print head ink wells until the water / ink from the wells bled thru onto a cleanex. Did this several times. Dryed the print head fairly well. Then added a drop of water to each cartridge for each color. Reasembled and ran an alignment and to my surprise, it works! I hadn't used my printer in a while, so the ink had dryed on the felt for both the print head and cartridges.......
