    Printer will print but not scan. I get error 1-2036

  • Anonymous May 17, 2009

    same thing when I place a paper on scanner and press "scan" the 'on/off" flashes. Then it comes up with the following error on the computer monitor. "cannot connect to the scanner, reconnect the printer and try again"



    So I unplugged both cords from the back of the printer. Wait 1 minute and then plugged both back in. Tried to scan again and the same thing happens. DOES NOT SCAN! Same message appears.



    I've had 2 replacement printers already from Kodak and was able to scan 2 documents (I think it was on the second printer?) and now only the above happens.



    The printer does print and copy.

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!

This works for me.

Turn your printer off and wait 30 seconds

Now, turn it back on

Place paper under scanner cover

DO NOT HIT THE SCAN BUTTON!!!!

A window pops up asking something about downloading a camera or scanner? Something like that.

Read down about 2/3 inchs. You'll see "advance users" or something like that.

CLick on it.

Screens now pop up asking you set up information. Answer them.

Let me know what happens. This worked for me.

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

Solid black line when scanning or copying from KODAK ESP-3


Get a damp soft cloth and clean the scanner glass. If that doesn't resolve the issue there is a chance the scanning unit itself is damaged.
Let me know.
