Question about Kodak ESP 5 Printer

1 Answer

Have exact same problem!

After cleaning the printer head the colors are better. Blue is fine, but still no yellow and the red still looks pink. Did a little research and looks as if this is a common problem that cannot be solved by calling Kodak as all calls are outsourced to some company in India. Sucky printer!

You may have to clean it out a few times just to make sure you get it all sometimes they have little gum balls that stick in there

The cartridsge printe red and blue fine. No yellow


The print head for the yellow color may be clogged. Check the manual to see how to turn on your print head's cleaning system. Run it until the yellow starts to print properly. If after running the cycle 4 or 5 times you still can't get any yellow to print you will probably have to take the printer to your local repair depot to have them diagnose the problem.

Brother Printer-copy-scan-photo capture Model DCP-110C After replacing black ink and yellow ink, still says yellow ink low, and will just print out pink menu items, no message. I cleaned it 5 times. ...


place the printer cartridge into a small amount of water to make sure the yellow is flowing out. Let me know what this finds and try it again if yellow comes out.

Also, what exactly did you clean, the metal contacts?

Printing incorrect colours


Usually when it does that, it's just the nozzles that are really clogged up on the print head. Even if it does not sound logical, many colors use a bit of red and yellow to get the exact tint. In the many years i've fixed computers i've seen it at least a million times, one of the color nozzles clogs up and prevents that color from coming out, and from what your saying, coming out pink means that it uses only a little bit of red to get the exact tint of blue needed for the photo or image and the blue never comes out. So clean it up with the software that comes with it a few times, if it still won't work then either take the print head our and dunk it for the night in rubbing alcohol, or if you don't feel safe doing that yourself, bring it to your local computer technician and he'll give you an estimate of how much it will cost to fix and you'll see if you prefer bying a new printer or fix this one.

Alarm flashes ink emptyhas ink! color was printing only yellow/green now prints only red/pink!


any chance it has dried out? run the test / head cleaning / did you reset the cartridge when you replaced it? generally if one or two colors work - the problem is the ink cartridge or the head for the colors not working. Did you remove the "tape" on the new cartridge?

Prints all yellow, with some blue and black, no brown


the problem is very simple the magenta ink the cartridge is over or the head is been blocked from where the magenta ink comes out,
because red colour requires ---yellow plus magenta(pink)----to make it red.and ----dark yellow plus magenta(pink) -------- for brown colour.

Will not print blue


Try this I triedi in my printer cartridge which was stuck for a while and only prints in red other colors dont. First you remove the cartridges get a clean dry tissue / towel paper and smudge the cartridge printing heads to the tissue it should give all the colors if not the ones that dont may have hardened. Get warm water (Clean) in a bowel and submerge the printing heads on the water not the entire cartridge to dissolve any deposits then try them again. Hope it works it worked on mine.
