KODAK ESP-3 printer says the printhead is missing

My KODAK ESP-3 printer is just a year old and hardly used, it says the print head is either missing or not instaled correctly. I removed it and put it back in but still get the same message.

SOURCE: incorrect printhead

It just means that the printhead is defective, All of the Canon machines say that when the printhead goes out.

I bought a Kodak ESPC310 printer a year ago...not happy with this product at all!!! I have had different problems from printing a test sheet and loosing 15% of my ink!!!!! to needing a new "printhead""!!!!!!! R u kidding me! This thing is a bit over a year old...and the company does nothing about it. I WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER KODAK PRINTER...I don\'t care if I have to pay more for ink for another printer..In the long run It is costing me a fortune to keep this piece of running...Thumbs down for Kodak!

USELESS! I guess the life of an ESP 3 is up to a year, because after Kodak replaced my first ESP 3 with a second, I'm now having issues. It's also MOST frustrating that if one cartridge is empty and...


Regarding the empty ink cartridges, ink is a lubricant for the print heads. Some color ink is used even if you only print in black or viceversa. If you printed with a color missing, you could destroy that print head from the friction of running without ink to lubricate it. That's why most printers won't allow you to print with a color missing even if you aren't using it.
If you allow a color to go empty, the residual ink in the head could clog and become permanently blocked. You would never be able to print that color again. So always replace ink cartridges as soon as they are empty.

Regarding the printer not being able to detect the size of the paper, you probably need a firmware update. Here is the support information from Kodak website.

And I have to agree with you, printers don't have a very long life cycle, but you should get at least 2 years out of it! Good luck!

Printer prints purple


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.
