Hello fosstone
Are you running windows Vista? Was the printer working at one time? If using Vista try this. Open Control panel, open system. Click on hardware tab, click device manager button. Scroll down till you see the yellow ! point. Right click on it once & choose update driver (a left click). A pop-up window will open. Choose No not at this time, click next. Click Install from a list or specific location. Click the Browse button. Scroll to your C:\ drive & click on it. Scroll down to the folder Window\system32 & click on it once. Click OK. With any luck windows Vista will re-find your USB & your printer.
Lastly, Microsoft may have created a fix in Vista update (KB940199). So run Windows Update just to be sure.
Please drop by & let me know if this helped.
Good luck fosstone!
Have a good day.

SOURCE: no connection with computer but printer is recognized

Try this, Disconnect the USB printer connection.
Remove the printer from the printer list. The list should be empty.
Re-boot your computer.
Check and make sure their are no other printers in list.
Find your install disks for the printer.
If you do not have a install disk, go to HP and download the printer installation files.
Install the software and do not plugin the printer until it is asked for.
After you install the new drivers and software the printer should be seen by the computer.

SOURCE: Kodak ESP3 printer will not connect with Windows 7

The printer no longer has it's driver installed. Unfortunately this printer doesn't have a driver for 7 so your only option is to try to install the driver for XP.

Seeing as the problem is with your computer and NOT your printer it would be helpfull to know what OS you're using.
Go to printers and devices. Remove ALL the printers you don't have and all the Kodak printers you do have.
Load the Kodak install CD and follow the directions.

I just bought A Kodak esp 3250 series AIO printer. I can print from computer, copy and all that but whenever I try to scan to computer or even preview scan I get a error saying :An error occurred while...


Try a new USB cable. Scanners require bidirectional communication with the computer and thus can fail when printer itself works. (If you use a print server or USB hub, try a direct connection.) Also try changing USB ports.

Another thing to try is to remove the TWAIN driver and reinstall it. This requires the original software CD from Kodak.
1. From your computer desktop, click Start > Run. (In Windows 7, type run in the search box then click on Run.)
2. Type %windir%, then click OK.
3. Double-click twain_32.
4. Right-click Kodak, then select Delete.
5. Insert the KODAK All-in-One Printer Software CD into the appropriate drive, then go to D: > printer > scanner.
NOTE: The CD is indicated by D: above. The CD drive may be a different letter on your computer.
6. Double-click aioscannr.msi, then follow the instructions to remove it.
7. Go to D: > printer > scanner, then double-click aioscannr.msi, and follow the instructions to install the file.
8. Open Home Center Software:
a. Select Scan Documents and Pictures.
b. Scan a document.

Unfortunately, if the error persists, the scanner may need service. Contact Kodak: http://www.kodak.com/go/contact .

I hope this helps.
