Hello, I have an Kodak ESP3. The paper jam light comes on whether i'm trying to print or even when i turn in on and there isn't any paper in it as I haven't even tried to print anything yet.
After having a look at some of the solutions on this website I tried unplugging and removing printer head then unplugging and putting it back in then unplugging and putting cartridges back etc but this had no effect whatsoever.
I have also got regcure to see if problems were to do with my computer but still no joy.
other advice on here such as damp paper has not helped either i have tried with brand new paper.
After I have done the classic turn off and turn on again it straight away tries to take in paper, it isn't able to do it then after a couple fo attempts the red light comes on.
If I push the paper in a little to help the printer to take in paper it feeds it though itself ok but then still says there is a paper jam.

This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you.
Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.
First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.
If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there. And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it. Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Go to www.kodak.com/go/itg and select all in one printers and then paper jam as your problem. they will give you step by step instructions to resolve the issue. if this does not solve the issue,
call kodak @ 1800 421 6699 and they will replace the printer for you free of cost as all the esp-3 printers are in warranty as of now.
Kodak has a repair page and I followed their directions on fixing the paper jam. Actually, I also got to know my printer a little more because of their online suggestions and directions. Thanks!! Margie Prothro
It isn't fixed yet, I have spoken to the shop I bought it from and I have got to take it back in for an exchange printer, they think it must be a manufacturing fault. Thank you for your help, how will I let you know if it works?
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
Yes, put it in the box and take it back, and don't look back. A paper jam is the least of it's problems. Wait till you keep track of the ink you use: 4 4X6 color pictures, and 85 black printed pages before you have to replace the inks. I know , I have one, 3 printheads replaced, and recently Kodak send a rebuilt printer. Kodak has big problems with this.
Get an HP printer.
1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover. 2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.) 3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button. 4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring. 5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.
If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6. If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service. 6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot. 7. Turn the printer off. 8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers. 9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.
