    I follow instruction as directed however no result. Spoke to Kodak andinformed them of my problem, they are sendinga new color cartridge.



    Would a malfunctioning color cartridge result in the black cartridge also not functioning ?

Try this....
You have to re-install these cartridges, please follow the instructions below:
1) Turn on the printer; take out the old used cartridges
2) Turn off the printer for a few minutes
3) Turn on the printer, when it says "insert inks", and then insert thecompatible cartridges one by one, making sure the cartridges aresitting completely in the slots.
Please shake the cartridges and use the alcohol cloth to clean the cartridge head.
Still no go..

Kodak ESP-3 All-in-One-Printer still says black ink catridge is low after I replaced it


There is a sensor in the cartridge which contacts with the printer. See it is clean from dirt. Try reseating the cartridge. If you use cheap cartridge rather than genuine then this could happen.

Check for updates in the Kodak website appropriate for you.

Purchased Kodak ESP 3250 yesterday. Not printing photographs.


Yes sounds to me like one of your ink cartridge is empty. Replace and try again.

My printer only prints color..have installed new black cartridge but still only prints color so installed another new black cartridge and still only prints color


Unlike most printers where the print cartridge and printheads are attached and sold together, the ESP 3 has a separate printhead from the cartridges.

Remoe both cartridges. Then look at the place where the cartridges sit. There is a latch you push down in the back. This will release the printhead to allow it to be removed.

Remove the print head

Take a cotton swap and a little alcohol and clean the printhead of all ink. Repeat this until it is totally clean.

Make sure the printhead is dry and clean of all ink and alcohol.

Replace the printhead.

Place cartridges in and test.

If this does not work, then you need a new printhead for this printer.

here is an example of how to remove and replace printheads for thsi unit.
http://faqs.kodak.com/atg/faq/attachments/AUR1780-2.pdf

to gt a new printhead you must contact kodak
http://www.kodak.com/go/contact

probably as expensive or almost as expensive as a new printer.

The seperate printhead from the carts are why kodak can have their ink so cheap. Those other brands cost that extra 15-20$ for the attached new head with each cart.

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.......
