This problem has plagued me for a very long time. The issue is that the printer head is "glued" in the resting position under the guard of the printer, so you can't remove the ink cartridges to clean it. Solution is to (I know this sounds stupid, but it works) turn the printer on the side where the printer cartridges are (if they are stuck on the left side, turn the printer on its side so the cartridges are on the bottom). Turn the printer on, and the cartridges magically start moving! I guess there are some sensors that get tricked out when you tip the printer on its side. If the cartridges are still stuck, click the "ok" button, and before it gets a chance to see if you actually fixed the problem, turn the printer off using the power button. It takes a long time, but you should see the ink trap lower (release the ink cartridges) and the ink cartridges start moving to prepare for shutdown! Grab the cartridges when they move out of their hiding place and don't let them go back until you clean the print head so it doesn't get stuck again. Remove the ink cartridges, then push the grey tab to release the print head. Wipe the bottom of the print head clean with rubbing alcohol (it will have a lot of gooey - sticky ink stuck on the bottom). I used nail polish remover since I didn't have rubbing alcohol available. You can also wipe down the ink pad which is where the ink cartridges were previously jammed to clean up more of the mess and prevent this sort of thing happening again too soon. Good luck!

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

This is one of the common connectivity issues marring the benefits of having a wireless printer. In this situation your printer will not print when connected wirelessly but would need you to set it up with your system using a USB cable. Try resetting the IP of your system to what is mentioned in the printer and in case there is a router connecting your printer and system then use the IP address of router and put it in your system. This should help you fix this printer issue.

SOURCE: printhead cartridge jam code 3527

Contated Kodak about the error code 3527 and was advised I needed to purchase another printer and they would give me a 30% discount. Why would I do that when my Kodak printer is only 14 months old! My Dell is 9 years old and works fine! Dell ink cartrides are expensive and can only be ordered online. That is why I switched to Kodak. Do not buy Kodak!

You may have blocked print head nozzles.
Try the printer maintenance to clear the printer nozzles.
After several deep cleaning attempts and there is no improvements in the printthen a new print head is required.
A new print head maybe expensive and it maybe more cost effective to purchase anew printer.

Several things could cause a printhead jam. Check to make sure the bar is clean and that no pieces of any stick on labels are stuck to the wrong places, next, make sure your cartriges are properly seated, if all else fails, you can see if the print head can move at all or if it seems to be sticking to the steel bar that holds the print head. if the print head is sticking to the bar, DO NOT OIL THE BAR. you can place a drop of lighter fluid on each side of the print head to lube the bar. There is a bronze bushing in the print head and it will absorbe oil and lighter fluid is a very fine cleaner lub. But do remember that it is also very flammable.

Printhead carriage jam


It all depends on who made the product. There are often times simple solutions but they need to be found by searching on the web and talking to service people about the unit. Some print head motors were known to fail or develop bearing noise over time in the HP line. Many of these things are really not prone to be fixed as the repair cost is sometimes the same as a new unit.
I would contact the warranty center- even if out of warranty and see if you could talk to a technician to start.

Clearing Code 3527 from Kodak Hero 9.1


Hi friends,
I was able to solve this problem (error code 3527 on Kodak hero 9.1) by opening the printer entirely (dis-assembled), Checking the cartridge carriage assembly, i discovered that the belt that drive carriage assembly had a locker that was broken as such, the carriage assembly could not move in the direction as the motor drives the belt on.
I simply inserted the belt in position and drop a little drop of super glue to it, let it dry off.
Assemble my printer, and it was ok and is working.

Code 3527 Printhead carriage jam on Kodak ESP 5210 All in one


the only thing i can think off is there is a problem with the head sensor, the heads move back and forth on a rigid belt but the head case also runs along a see through plastic strip, this has lines in it and tells the printer were it is, other thing i can think of is the head cleaner, they can get stuck in them sometimes and cause misalignment and damage the reader. also anything they like to use on printers is a inc use chip that can make faults come up so you have to buy a new printer. this has been in a few articles. business printers don't have this feature. hope this helps
