Greetings Thurnwood,

Sorry to hear about your trouble.

First thing I would do is check the printer to be sure you have removed all packing tape, and that any supply space is clear. If there are more than one resource locations for paper, be sure you have them in their correct positions.

Unplug the printer from your computer, and turn off the power. Leave it off for a couple of minutes then turn it is on. Do not connect to the computer but insert some paper and try printing via the stand alone option. Make sure you have calibrated the printer and that the print head and ink are installed correctly.

If none of this works, please call our 800 421 6699 and our team will make sure you are printing in no time flat.

Good luck, I will be around to see how you make out.

Best Regards,

Ron Baird
the friendly Kodak guy

Clean the rubber intake rollers with alcohol and allow to dry for 10 minutes. Take the tray out and you should be able to see the roller inside. Also check to make sure that the printer is default to tray 2. Use the Menu option on the LCD screen of the printer. Set the default tray to tray 2 in the windows driver as well. You should be able to easily get to this by hitting "ctrl+p" when you are ready to print a document.

How do you open the rear door to fix a paper jam on a Kodak 5250 printer?

There are two plastic tips that you pinch inward at the lower back of the printer. A rectangular plastic piece will come out if you give it a god tug and you should be able to remove any jammed paper. I took mine off and never put it back on because it is aggravating to remove. I also had a problem of every 5-6 sheets of paper would not feed correctly through the printer and a paper jam notice would be displayed. I have all but remedied this too by stretching two heavy duty rubber band around the paper dispensing tray close to the bottom to provide more tension on the paper feeder itself. WORKS GREAT FOR ME! GOOD LUCK! Mine is a Kodak esp 3.2 but it paper jams a lot so maybe this will help you some as well?

My kodak All-in-one printer ESP9 goes instantly in paper jam. Checked for a paper jam and found no paper jam or any paper anywhere inside machine. Pressed down on "OK" button and printer...

Had same issue with my ESP 9, called up the kodak support lines and spoke to them over the phone, getting a replacement sent out free of charge and I've owned this for 1 year and 4 months and only had one prior printer jam which righted itself in the past. Seems like ESP 9's are prone to the unfixable printer jam.
Best bet call kodak and get it sorted.

Paper jam

You are receiving this error message because there is a paper jam or the top (photo) tray is not securely in position and the printer cannot initialize. This error message can appear for an ESP 7, ESP 9, ESP 7250, or ESP 9250 all-in-one printer.
To resolve a paper jam, we have an easy Step-by-Step Solutions and Repair tool. Within the tool, select All-in-one printer, then Paper jam.

When you clear the paper jam:
  1. Make sure you open the paper output tray and inspect the top tray for photo paper that could be jammed inside or that remains in the nip at the entrance.
  2. Pull out the bottom paper tray and clear any paper jams.
  3. Remove the duplexer from the back of the printer and clear any paper jam.
NOTE: Curled photo paper could induce a paper jam. To prevent curling:
  • Store un-printed paper in a tightly closed plastic bag or in its original packaging.
  • Store sealed packages of paper flat, and not on
  • When you are ready to print, take only the paper intend to use immediately.
To remove curl in photo paper:
  1. Place the paper in a plastic bag or in its original packaging.
  2. Gently bend the paper in the opposite direction of the curl, then insert it into a tube-a paper towel tube works well.

    NOTE: The tube should be larger than 1.5 in. (4 cm) in diameter.
  3. After a few minutes, remove the paper from the tube.
  4. Remove the paper from the plastic bag or packaging.
  5. Verify that the curl has been removed from the paper. Repeat the steps above if necessary.
If the top paper tray is not securely in position and the printer cannot initialize (you may hear a grinding noise, and the top paper tray will not open), contact Kodak.

Kodak esp 7 has a paper jam I cannot remove the paper

If you have tried the Kodak standard instructions for clearing the paper jam problem and it did not help try the procedure below.
1. Open the printing area of the printer (containing the ink cartridges).
2. The Ink cartridge holder should be to right side of track.
3. Look on left side, below the track for the cartridge that is used to
clean the print heads.It can be identified by a square black pad
approx. 1" sqaure that appears to be made of "felt".
If it is visible this is most likely your problem.
4. To correct problem locate the flat latching lever approx. 3/4" wide that
sticks up about 1/2" above the cartridge. It is locacted just behind
the "felt" square. Gently push lever toward rear which should free the
cleaning cartridge and allow the entir cartridge to move slightly
5. Close the top of the printer and cycle the printer off and back on.
If this is the problem, the "paper jam" error will now be gone.
This is such a simple fix I do not know why kodak does not inform
customers of this problem and how to fix it.

My Kodak ESP5 keeps saying "Paper Jam please remove paper jam" But there is no paper in it?

My esp 5 gave me this same message. I'm not an expert but here is what worked for me.

I turned off and disconnected both cables (usb and power) then reconnected and turned on.
At this point it still read paper jam, so I took ink cartridges out and paper out.
I then reinstalled ink cartridges and PULLED OUT THE PAPER TRAY to it's FULL capacity, added about 5 sheets of paper, and on the main menu I chose the allignment function and printed a test page and jam!
Hope this works for someone. For some reason pulling the tray all the way out cleared the "jam" message for me. Now if I could just get the new ink cart to work I'd be all set! Good Luck!
