Question about Kodak ESP 3 Multifunction Printer/ Copier/ Scanner

Printer prints purple

No matter what I've done to this, it's printing ourple. I rarely use it as I have a laser printer. But this is ridiculous. My hp photosmart printer has lasted me 8 years still going, yet this is only a few months old and it's ****.

Any suggestions? I've done everything, changed the flow of ink, set back to default, cleaned out changed ink, etc.

Open the kodak all in one home center on your desktop and click on [?] on top most right hand side. choose maintenance under general links and choose printhead cleaning. if this does not solve the issue, call kodak @ 1800 421 6699 and they will replace the printhead for you free of cost. Kodak esp-3 printer had issues with it since beginning, kindly refer to online views or the reviews before buying a product. i would recommend you to buy esp 5250 as this printer had issues with the working since beginning and Kodak only replaces the printer with same model. And issue still persists.

Printer will only print purple


on a colour printer, black is mixed with the other colours. Try printing a black and withe photo and you always get a colour cast. If your black cartridge is empty or the nozzles are blocked, you get bad colour and fussy prints.
test all nozzles, like is explained in the manual.
Check, if you know how to do, if nothing fell in the printer, that is now on the print head. Sometimes just dust or paper scraps are picked up by the printhead, making it difficult for the printer to print a normal page.

I have a light purple streak in my color prints in the same position everytime, what could be the problem?


This could be a dirty laser window, there is a blue stick once you've opened the door to the machine, put this in the hole just below each of the developer units and it should pick up any excess toner and solve your problem.

Hope this helps

My laptop prints blank pages no matter what I print or what kind of file. The printer is an HP all in one. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers. Didn't work. The prints by itself just...


This looks like a DEP problem (Data execution Prevention) which is part of Service Pack 2 (SP2) on your computer. To solve the problem, DEP needs to be set on: DEP only for critical windows programs and services (I don't know if this is the correct translation). You will find the DEP settings on your windows help function. .

When we are printing the printer will not print the right color


try cleaning the heads using the cleaning utiltity on its maintendnce tab, if that doesnt do it, you might have installed non-original laser toner, kindly check also the color settings on what software you use. try also adjusting your screen resolution and color scheme. it could be that what appears on your screen is really not it seems.

Printing from the wrong tray on the Ricoh C410 DN


these settings need to be done with the RPCS printer driver, go to properties and then custom settings from there you can tell the printer where to print from.

Installing without the disk


Gabbyone, Here is the page to download drivers for your printer. Just click on the link for the appropriate operating system you need: http://downloads.lexmark.com/cgi-perl/downloads.cgi?ccs=229:1:0:525:0:0&emeaframe=&target=http://downloads.lexmark.com/cgi-perl/downloads.cgi&target=http://downloads.lexmark.com/cgi-perl/downloads.cgi&&req=::::: As far as why is it printing purple it could be several reasons but some common ones are; you?ve run out of a particular ink color, one of your ink jets could be clogged or damaged, your cartridge was refilled wrong and on occasionally a software driver gets messed up. Reinstall your printer, do a test and if it still prints purple try running your printers nozzle cleaning utility. If that fails post another questions and give us some history, how long has it been since you?ve printed, are you using new Lexmark or refilled cartridges and any other pertinent information.
