Question about Kodak ESP 3 Multifunction Printer/ Copier/ Scanner

Printer not Printing

I have a Kodak Esp 3250 and it suddenly stopped printing. It does make copies but it refuses to take instructions from my computer. The error message that I get on my computer screen is a communication error, and it recommends that I either check if the USB cable is in good condition or that I should switch off and then turn my printer on. Needless to say, I have tried both after which I get another "Printer not responding message" which suggests that I make sure that the printer is on and is connected to the computer via a USB cable.
I should also mention that the first error message that I get is despite the fact, that my computer picks up the printer and after receiving printing instructions, a message box, states that the printer is "printing" and the progress bar is at 2% and remains there eternally.

Well this is the software issue till i can understand. to be sure that it is purely software issue try to copy from your printer itself and see if that is not the printer's fault.

if its not then:

Remove printer's USB cable from your computer

delete the Printer's Icon from your control panel/ system preferences> Printers and faxes/ printers

now uninstall the software of kodak and reinstall the the software from www.kodak.com/go/esp3downloads

after software installs then plug your printer back in and wait untill it get installed on your system

try to print it again and see if you can print

Go into the printer Que and delete all your printing that is pending. Your printer cable was backed out and you kept trying to send print instructions. After clearing them all out unplug power to printer and plug in again. When computer says it is there try printing again. If that does not work take your computer down and bring back up to reload drive.

Kodak esp 3250 printer only printing in blue and yellow


Hi,

According to your problem first check your printer setup. You may have to change the black ink cartridge. But first clean the head of the printer and align the cartridges.

I have an all-in-one Kodak ESP 3250 printer. Bought it 4 months ago. I'm interested in printing only in black, but now the color cartridge has emptied and it won't let me print with the black cartridge...


The KODAK All-in-One Printer uses an advanced built-in printhead. The system is designed to provide excellent image and text quality, while eliminating the need to purchase new printheads every time you replace ink cartridges, and saving you money. The printing system requires that both the black and color ink cartridges be installed to print. If either cartridge is not installed or is out of ink, the printer or printhead will not print correctly.


Install the color a new cartridge, avoid damage to the print head.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

DONT REFILL CARTRIDGES!!!

Most new cartridges are fitted with page count chips.

The chips blow after a certain amount of pages.

So just filling the cartridge with ink wont help

Kodak ESP 3250 Printer shows message "Unable to detect edge of paper" and paper just goes straight through


I've had this problem with my esp 3250 that has become progressively worse over past year. I have tried every fix available online from driver, cleaning, power, etc. My printers default quality was set to 'draft' (just to save ink) which obviously speeds up the printing and I've found that if I use 'normal' or 'best' quality, it seems to help the printer detect paper edges, I think bc it slows down physical printing process? go figure but it's gotten me around a few times when I've needed hard copies immediately. Also, changing to heavier bond paper, 92 or better helped with edge detection. I'll finish current ink and not buy another one of these:(

Yes sounds to me like one of your ink cartridge is empty. Replace and try again.

Kodak esp 3250 won't print black. Changed cartridge and still won't print black. Just installed new printer.


I fixed my ESP 3250 print problems by removing the cartridges and print head. Using a Q-tip and warm water, added drops of water to each of the print head ink wells until the water / ink from the wells bled thru onto a cleanex. Did this several times. Dryed the print head fairly well. Then added a drop of water to each cartridge for each color. Reasembled and ran an alignment and to my surprise, it works! I hadn't used my printer in a while, so the ink had dryed on the felt for both the print head and cartridges.......
