Error message Printhead Missing or not installed correctly

The printhead is the device in which the ink cartridges sit. It may be mis-installed.
Take out the ink cartridges (carefully, you can get ink on yourself). Now using the gray latch on the right side of the carriage, remove and re-install the printhead. Jiggle it a little before lowering the latch to seat it.

Now, re-install the ink cartridges.

See if it works

Flashing light "E" at installation.

That means that no Printhead is installed,

Remove your inks and printhead
restart the printer
reinstall the Printhead and ink cartridges

If you still see letter "E"
call Kodak Assistance for a free Printhead

Its saying paper jam when iv only just installed it and i have not evan put any paer in yet. help me please this is a kodak esp.3


It means it has "paper jam"error message. This is a common issue w/ the ESP printers of Kodak especially if its brand new.

Try the steps below.

1.Open the printer access door.
2.Remove the black and color ink cartridges.
3.Reseat the printhead.

a. Lift the printhead release latch
b. Reseat the printhead, pushing firmly on the white label on the printhead (if provided) or the center of the printhead, until it clicks into place.

NOTE: You may also visit for demonstration on reintalling the printhead

4. Close the access door.
5. wait for the printer to initialize.

If issue persists, the printer itself needs to be replaced. Call 1.800.421.6699
