Try copying something from the printer in standalone mode and check if the same issue or not.....if it is then try and do print head cleaning from the menu option and if still does not resolve call kodak tech support as it is print head issue and needs replacement..........if the copy comes out fine and faded print is only when trying to print from the computer then it could be a software issue

Our kodak ESP5 wont print properly. We have installed new ink (a number of times now) but the ink is still very faded when printed. fed up of having to buy ink and still wont print out dark.


Sounds like print head needs replacing, try the troubleshooting guide on Kodak website to confirm, appears to be a common problem with these Kodak printers, if new it should be covered under warrenty although if not they are expensive

I have a Kodak ESP-3 less than a year old. When it prints, there are bands of faded image throughout the first page and the whole page is faded as if the ink cartridge is spent (but we have replaced it...


Some (not all) of the ink-jets that spray the ink onto the paper have been clogged. Thus, what should *NOT* be WHITE on the paper remains as WHITE.

Start the Kodak Printer "utility" software, and run a "print-head-cleaning-cycle", to unclog those jets.

If a few of those cycles fail to improve things, take the printer to a qualified technician, for a more-thorough cleaning.

How do you reset the blank ink cartiage for Kodak ESP 7 All-In-One Printer


There is no way to do that,. Refilling is also not successfull.

Try replacing the ink cartridge, other wise printer will not allow to even scan.

New ink cartridge but not printing green on esp 5 kodak all inone


you need to use the head cleaning tool in the printer properties, youll need to keep running it untill it runs clear and it uses alot of your ink while it does it.

youll find the cleaning option if you go to your
start/settings/printers and faxes, right click on your printer and go to printer preferences then maintinence

Everything that I print is faded with lines through it.


This is the same problem I have with my Kodak ESP-3 printer. Even after installing new cartridges I had faded color and lines (banding) thru the picture. I found many people wit the same problem and found out that Kodak had a very large batch of defective printer heads that were sent out with the ESP and 5500 series printers. I called Kodak customer sevice, the automated systym even has a number to push for the problem printers. Then you get a live tech person who runs you thru some diognostic steps. They are well aware of the problem and will send you a new printer head and cartidges for free and they pay the postage.
