Home Center won't open, and it won't scan

I have the ESP 5. It will print and it will copy, but the darn thing will not scan and the Home Center will not open. This is ridiculous. I paid enough money for this joke. I have run the repair option and it did nothing to change it. I just cannot get it to scan. I'm not a happy camper. Karla Hopper

SOURCE: Home Center will not open...Can't scan

I needed to reload my AiO Home Center software and no one seemed to have the correct procedure. Maybe if you remove & reinstall yours it will resolve your problem. This procedure worked for me on my XP-machine:
1. got to Control Panel/Printers&Faxes and delete the printer
2. go to your Hardware/Device Manager/Universal Serial Bus Controllers, right-click on USB Composite Device and select Uninstall
3. go to Control Panel/Add/Remove Software and remove the EasyShare software
4. disconnect the cables from the Printer
5. download from Kodak.com the program "install_aio.exe"; run the program
(I selected only AiO+EasyShare+Software Updater to load)
6. followed the prompts after the sw installed to reconnect the Printer cables
7. rebooted

WORKED for ME !

I'm not sure if you tried this but download the clear utility from kodak here: http://www.kodak.com/global/en/service/downloads/private/xp_vista_98_ClearUtility.jhtml?osXPor98=winXP
You will need to click start, go to control panel, click add/remove programs, uninstall the kodak home center, unhook the printer from computer, then run the clear kodak utility. Try then to reinstall after. I always install the drivers before the software by plugging the printer into the computer and running the hardware wizard in XP and pointing it to the drivers on the cd then I install the software after. If you need more help or clarification let me know. If this helped you please rate, thanks!

you need to uninstall the software and reinstall it, if you have not tried that. For XP Start-->control panel-->add/remove programme-->look for Kodak Printer software and uninstall it. For Vista Start-->control panel-->programmes and features and uninstall the software. Run the Kodak clear utility from http://unexpectedtwist4u.com/matthew and click on clear utility and you can either run it or save it first and then run it. Make sure to unplug the USB cable after uninstalling the software and reinstall the software from www.kodak.com/go/esp3downloads. Kodak phone support is open from 9 am to 12 midnight EST. Hope that works:)

Doesn't print but will scan and print


Are you saying it will scan and copy but not print? Copy is a local process and Scan might be a local process (done by the device) Print requires the computer.

I would suggest you get the latest version of the ESP 5 print driver. Then, delete your present driver. Turn the computer off, disconnect the ESP 5 and turn the computer back on. Run the package you downloaded from Kodak and follow the on screen instructions.

This should fix your problem. If not ... let me know ... we can try other things.

Thanks for your visit and please come again.

Can oper Kodak home center but cant scan or print from it


No you can't print. You need printer icon to operate.
You can try follow steps.
go to device manager ,   expand Universal Serial Bus (USB),  right click on USB Composite Device, Uninstall it. Reboot your computer. You will get a printer icon, 
and you can start printing without AIO Home center.
