Question about Kodak ESP 3 Multifunction Printer/ Copier/ Scanner

Open Question

Issue the same with my 5500

Works great...now. I wish I could bill Kodak for the hours I put in trying to solve this, but there's not much of it left to bill.

The details of this solution are the best! Very similar to how to rig HPs with the same problem, but this is clearer. Too bad Kodak techs don't look here for customer service solutions.

This particular printer does not have wireless A, B or G enabled but it does have Bluetooth. Although if you wanted a permanent and reliable connection the option that you can take is to wire this printer to your router and then print from a wireless computer. Another option is if you want you can buy a wireless printerserver for multifunction printers like the Linksys WPSM54G (Check and call for compatibility first) and then have it go wireless. Take note that you have to have a router for all these options by the way. As for the abovementioned bluetooth its not that reliable because of the speed. Especially if you print photos.

SOURCE: Kodak printer 5500 will not print in black

I had the same problem and wasted money on 2 new cartridges before finding the answer on several blogs. Call Kodak Tech Support. In this case they are very good. Tell them the problem, they walk you through some steps and then give up. They will then send you out a new print head (a cheap and disposable device). I thought about buying another one for the next time things go bad but I can't find a source. They send it in 3-5 days, free. I think Kodak is embarrassed about their bad system (printheads should not go bad so fast!)

SOURCE: Custom print size help Kodak 5500

if you are running windows vista there is a built in roadblock to being able to add any custom size pages. You have to turn off user account control by going into control panel, users, user accounts and then turn on/off user account control. After you do this you can add any size you want then if you want the added safety go back and turn on the user account control. Hope this helps and happy printing!

This can be the issue with printhead if you are printing documents (black color can be missing from the print)

Try to print a picture from the computer, if it works then the issue is with black color (printhead needs replacement)
If nothing prints from computer then call kodak tech support (drivers will be re-istalled, delete the printer icon from Conntrol Panel > Printer and Faxes > Restart the computer > Connect the printer USB cable again.

Kodak 5300 aio printer won't print black


It is the print head. Cleaning the heads does not do any good, either does replacing the ink. What you'll need to do is contact Kodak's customer service line and they can replace it for you free of charge. On this site everyone seems to be saying it is consistently the black that stops, however, based on what Kodak said it is possible that either the black or the color can have this same issue.

When you call in they will ask you for your service number, which is located on the bottom left corner of the machine, when you lift the lid (as if you were going to replace the ink). They didn't ask me when I bought it, how much I used it, etc.

They will set up a case for you - it takes 2-3 business days for the print head to arrive. They will provide you with an invoice number as well. Be sure to document it all just incase the head never comes, or if there are additional issues after you receive it (and/or if it doesn't solve the problem)
