Advent resetting ink levels


Hi There
Your all-in-one printer is designed to stop printing before quality is compromised. Make sure you always use KODAK Ink Cartridges. Kodak is not responsible for the compatibility or performance of non-Kodak brand ink cartridges or refilled ink cartridges. To purchase KODAK Ink Cartridges, go to the KODAK Store.
To resolve the error, replace the black ink cartridge with a new cartridge:
  1. Turn on your printer.
  2. Open the access door. For printers with LCDs, follow the instructions on the LCD screen.

    NOTE: For ESP 3250 and ESP 5250 all-in-one printers, if the ink cartridges don't move to the center when you follow the instructions on the LCD screen, see Printhead and ink cartridges do not move to center with access door open.
  3. When the printhead stops moving, pinch the latch on the black ink cartridge and lift it out of the printhead.
  4. Remove the new black ink cartridge from its bag.
  5. Remove the protective cap from the black ink cartridge.

    CAUTION: Insert the ink cartridge immediately to prevent the printhead from drying out.
  6. Insert the black ink cartridge into the printhead.
  7. Press down on the tab until you hear a click.
  8. Close the access door. For printers with LCDs, follow the instructions on the LCD screen.

    NOTE: For more information on installing ink cartridges, see the Extended User Guide for your printer. Review Maintaining Your Printer - Replacing ink cartridges.
If the error continues, upgrade the firmware for your printer:
  1. Press the Cancel button on your printer to clear the error message. (If the error does not clear, contact us.)
  2. Upgrade the firmware for your printer:
    1. Locate and select the firmware download for your printer.
    2. Follow the instructions to install the firmware.
  3. If the error continues, contact us.

Ink cartridge in Z705 will not move to center of carriage for changing when top is lifted Even though the Belt is moving. Help !!!!!!!!!!!.. >:( :( :'(


Sometimes the ink cartridge carrier won't automatically move to its loading position even when the printer is on and the cover is open. Follow the steps below:


1. Unplug the printer from the power source.

2. With the cover open, hold the solid white strip that connects from the carrier assembly to the ink cartridge carrier and gently slide the cartridge carrier to the center of the printer.

3. Remove the used cartridges.

4. Load the new cartridges. Close the cover.

5. Plug the printer back to the power source.



I hope this helps.

Printer can not print Error Number 5200


To solve your problem follow the instruction step by step. Start with printer powered off
1. Open cover of printer and verify that the ink cartridge carriage is not in the center of the printer. Leave cover open.
2. Unplug the electrical cord from the printer and wait 30 seconds.
3. Plug electrical cord back in, when ink cartridge carriage moves to the center of the printer quickly unplug the electrical cord again. This should leave the ink cartridge carriage in the center of the printer so you can get to it.
4. Lift up the gray arm that surrounds the ink cartridges.
5. Remove the entire ink cartridge holder (not just the ink cartridges). It will lift out easily as a unit. Lower the gray arm that you lifted to remove the cartridge holder.
6. Close printer cover. Plug electricity back in.
7. There should be a message about checking the ink cartridge on the display . Thanks

Ink holder will not stop in middle to change ink


Hi, normally when changing ink cartridge, once you open the cover the printer head move from home to the center of the printer and halted,if in case this not happen something wrong with the sensor, if the printer move from home to center just pull off the power cord to stop the printer at the middle or nearly at the middle just to remove the cartridge and replace it. Upon replacing the ink cartridge, just power on the printer and it will return home to its position.

How do I replace the ink cartridge when it will not center when I lift the lid


Hi,

Since you are not able to find the carriage ( which holds the cartridges ) in center position, Try to move the carriage manually to center. Make sure the printer is On or you can turn it off and move it to center and replace the cartridges.

Also, follow the steps given below as well.

  1. Remove the color ink cartridge.
    • Open the printer access door. For printers with LCDs, follow the instructions on the LCD screen.
    • Wait until the printhead is idle and silent, then pinch the latch on the color ink cartridge with your thumb and forefinger and lift it out of the printhead.

      IMPORTANT: Make sure you are using KODAK Ink Cartridges. Your KODAK All-in-One Printer is designed to work with KODAK Ink Cartridges. Kodak is not responsible for the compatibility or performance of either non-Kodak brand ink cartridges or refilled ink cartridges. To purchase KODAK Ink Cartridges, go to Kodak's Web site, then to KODAK Store.

  2. Check the two electrical contacts on the ink cartridge for small marks, which should appear if the cartridge was installed correctly.

    If the electrical contacts do not have small marks:

    • Reinstall the ink cartridge, making sure you press down on it until it clicks into position.

    • Remove the color ink cartridge, then check the two electrical contacts on the ink cartridge again for small marks. Repeat if necessary.
    • Reinstall the ink cartridge.

  3. Close the printer access door. For printers with LCDs, follow the instructions on the LCD screen.

  4. When installing the ink tanks, push the top of the ink tank until a click sound is made.

    Note: If the ink tanks are not installed properly, paper may not be fed properly, or ink may not be ejected.

How do I manually center the ink cartridges on my A960 ?


The ink cartridge had jammed the carrier and prevented it from moving. I stuck my little finger in the bottom of the carrier, pushed the cartridge up a bit, freed the carrier and was able to move it manually. I replaced the cartridge and all the messages went away. The printer now works as it should. Must have been a bad cartridge.
