Question about Kodak ESP 3 Multifunction Printer/ Copier/ Scanner

1 Answer

Black vertical line (1 inch wide) appears while scanning/copying

I have a Kodak Esp3 printer. When I print a black vertical line appears (about 1 inch wide) down the side of the page. I have cleaned the scanner glass and this did not help. It is a perfectly straight line that appears while scanning or copying, but not when printing straight from the computer. What could it be?

For this kind of problem you need to call the tech support because the printer is already messed up and it is in need of replacement

Hope this help

I have a kodak esp3 printer and i have never been able to get it to scan. In scan mode it just comes out with black lines I can not find a phone number for kodak on the box or in the box it`s just like...


Dear Sir/Ma'am,

If you get lines on the scans usually the scanner CCD is faulty - Please print a picture and then copy that picture, If the print looks fine but the copy has lines then then scanner on the printer is faulty and the printer would need to be replaced (if in Warranty).

Please then contact Kodak with the outcome of the steps listed above. You can contact Kodak either on 0870 243 0270 or email them on kdisc.allinone.uk@support.kodak,com (UK only)

Regards,

Black line is present when copying document; not


This sounds as if you have some ink/contamination on the small scaning glass that sits to either the left or right of the main glass on the copier.(Depending on the model/make)As your original is scanned over this thin piece of glass the scanning device will see any spots and this will result in a black line down the page.Please clean the glass with a soft rag.

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.
Cheers, Chris

Esp3 printer, has new cartriges, printing very fient


Have you tried the maintenance tool - if you open the kodak printer status monitor in your taskbar (next to the clock); at the top right hand side you will see an icon showing crossed hammer and spanner, click on this and run the tools from top down (dont need to do the test page).
If that doesnt work you could try this:-
my new esp3 printer (replaced due to not printing black) came with a suppliment document for action if no black or faint print appears!!:
verify paper is loaded into paper tray then press and hold the Cancel and Copy/Resume buttons simultaneously until the On/Off light flashes -apparently this fixes the no black/faint issue.
hope this helps

Print Problem - vertical lines


If the problem only occurs when using the document feeder, the problem is not usually caused by the drum. When using the document feeder, try to notice where the scanner (the light assembly under your scan glass)stops just before the paper is being fed. Some multifunction machines have a small piece of glass that is separate from the large scan glass and the scanner assembly stays parked underneith it as the original is being fed over it. Most likely there is something on the glass where the scanner parks as originals are being fed thru the feeder. When putting your original on the large scan glass to copy, the mark on the glass will only show as a spot, but will show as a vertical line thru the whole copy when using the feeder.
