SOURCE: replacing printhead on Kodak ESP 5 Printer

you need to lift printer front access door , take both ink cartridges out,
the carrier (black piece) is called printhead.
When you see carefully at the center , there is a gray latch. you need to "pull it up", it will release the printhead.

SOURCE: Replaced printhead and ink cartiages on a Kodak ESP.3

I had my esp3 stop printing black also. I bought new cartridges even tho' I knew the ones in the printer were at least half full. Still not printing black. I finally called Kodak support and got a tech who was the first tech from India who could speak English well. He was very helpfull but in the end he told me he would send me the printer head because that was the problem. My printer was not used for about a month and the head dried up. The tech said that printer must be used about twice a week and the best way was to print the test by using the 'Scan' and 'Copy' at the same time. There was no sense telling the tech this is a huge flaw in the printer as he must have been hearing this for a long time. After I received the new printer head it prints fine. This is an absolutely huge flaw in this printer. If they can't make a different style of head for this printer these will stop being used................. So if you have the ESP3 (I don't know about the other models) and don't use it often the head will dry up and you can't clean it (according to the tech I talked to). Kodak should send these free for the life of the machine in my opinion.

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: Kodak ESP 3250 won't print black. Changed

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.......

Printer is not printing any blue despite new printheads being added


If you have tried new printheads, I believe you mean new cartridges, then the panel that makes contact with the ink catridge needs to cleaned. you may to confirm that the panel on the ink cartridge that makes contact with that panel inside the printer is very clean. Usually cleaning should be made with tissue/cotton wool and methylated spirit. Improper contact of these panel is the other reason a particular ink will not print.
