Re: kodak ektaprint 90
Wow, that is a very good copier although quite old.Unless the wheels have been run off of it its a keeper. I used to work for Kodak when they marketed this machine and I was a service tech for them. Great machine. I had one that had 6 million copies on it and was still worth keeping. Now to the point. Unfortunately this copier has a physical "jumper" inside the back panel that has been removed which causes the copier to expect some type of additional action to provide access to the device. There were several ways to gain access (access codes, external controllers, even a card like a credit card) to the copier once this jumper was removed. The jumper is actually a small connector that fits on the end of a wiring harness that basically completes a circuit to tell the copier to be ready. Without the jumper, the copier is waiting for an external device or virtual device to "complete" the circuit. It has been over 10 years since I touched one, so I am sorry that I can't recall the exact location of the wiring harness. However,typically the "jumper" (a small connector with a mere loop of wire from one pin to another) is tied near or onto the place it belongs. So I guess my point is that the copier is worth the time it would take to remove the covers and inspect the wiring in hopes of noticing a stray connector that is just dangling. I wish I could be of more help, but maybe I have been some help. Take care and good luck. :-) ................spinal........

id try lubing the feed rollers well the metal bars where they contact the chassis and lube gears and stepper motors. its been awhile since ive had my phazer. i traded it last year to my church pastor but try that. radio shack sells a teflon lubricator part no. 64-2301a and im certain amazon also sells them. ONE drop goes a LONG way. its also a miracle worker for pc fans, and household appliances as well as automotive where its not high heat. even bearings.
hope this helps you a tad sorry i cant be more of a help here but thought id pass a few personal experience in fixing electronics/mechanical tips along.
I assume you are referring to New Hampshire. Although I am a simple **** from Tennessee I may be able to help you. Kodak's appetite for the "office imaging" market began to die on the vine far earlier than the towel was officially thrown in. Forgive my longwindedness but this will flesh things out for you and provide you with more options to to get service on your copier. The IS50 was actually made by CANON (which you may already know) and was I believe the last copier Kodak marketed during it's 10 year joint venture with Canon. Fast forward, Kodak sold its copier division to DANKA. So you have 3 options. Kodak.........(zip)......Danka.....(marginal)......Canon..........best bet. Please consider this. The IS 50 is darn good copier. But it's lifespan(legally) has expired and NEW parts might be close to impossible. A fouth option might be to find a "Joe's Canon Copier"shop, like a 3rd party CO. as they willl buy copiers at auctions and from leasing companys etc,,,, .There is a huge market for this and they tend to have decent techs as they have low overhead and max profits as they roll a NEW copier into a church and merely ask for a cost per copy with no strings attached. They buy something for nothing (copier) and every time the START button is pressed their bank account increases. Now, how to determine whether Bill or Joe or Bob's copy service is the one you want is a toughie. Canon does have a rating for companys that are not certifed dealers,......but ....they will sell parts to.I don't know the whole story on that but I would use that as a benchmark. Sorry to ramble, I just hope I helped. Live long and happy paper jam. SPINAL
The P3005 is known to have problems with a chip on the formatter, gives various errors to include the 49.2d9d, blank display and others. HP has not issued a recall or service advisory but is fully aware of failure of the chip on the formatter. Repair for this is to print a configuration page, replace the formatter board, bring the machine back up in service mode and put in the correct serial, service code and page counts into the new formatter's nvram memory.
Liberty Parts Team at lbrty.com has refurbished formatters at reasonable pricing with no return core to worry about. The PIN needed to access the service mode is 10300506.
Other problems with the P3005 are grinding in the fuser area, correctable by removal of the fuser, replacement of the 4 accessable gears in the side (left as you look into the back) and the main gear on the fuser then put the fuser back in and should be good.

if the red light is still flashing then try and reseat both the ink cartridges and print head and make sure you use genuine kodak ink cartridges as there are retailers selling look alike and refilled ink cartridges.......if still the same problem then print head problem call kodak tech support they will replace it for you without any charge........
Call Kodak Customer service and request a new printhead. They do not sell them in stores.
You could try soaking your printhead nozzles in hot water. NOT TAP WATER OR DRINKING WATER. make sure the water is distilled or de-ionized. do not submerge the entire printhead just the nozzle plate on the bottom. you could also try distilled vinigar, or 90% rubbing alcohol. I would not recomend wipeing the printhead nozzles they are delicate.
You have a few options. 1. Use the Printhead cleaning in the Kodak Software this is recomened way and the safest but will use ink each time. 2. Get a T-shirt or another type of cloth that wont leave lint, get some distilled or de-ionized water (tap will work but not as well) and mannually clean the printhead. To do this remove the printhead and look at it. you should only wipe with the nozzels groove. go with the grain not against it. you dont need to put alot of pressure. Place the nozzels on a wet area of the cloth wipe in the directions of the nozzels you can do this on a flat surface or use your fingers to press against. 3. Call kodak say your printhead is dead and you would like a replacement. They should not charge you for it because its not your fault that it does not work.
