Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

My Kodak ESP3 printer suddenly stopped working about 2 weeks ago, after working fine for 2 years or so. After some of the things I have read on here, I am pretty sure it's the printhead that has gone bad; As I didn't know what else I could do about the ESP3, I ordered a new Kodak ESP5250 from Office Max. It was delivered last Friday, 9/3/10, and I installed it. It doesn't work, straight from the box. I have fought it for 3 days, Have done the diagnostic steps over several times, and nothing helps. It won't print black at all, and the blue color doesn't print. If I reinstall the ink cartridges, it sometimes prints the first page, then just bits and pieces of the 2nd page, and nothing at all by the 3rd page. I had a prfessional computer repairman here yesterday to check it out, and he said it is definitely the printhead. I have been very unhappy about not being able to install the printer and start printing as soon as I got it. I do a lot of printing, and really need a working printer. I read postings from people who have had similar problems, and find that Kodak sends out free replacement printheads when needed. I definitely need one for this printer, and would like to know if I could also get one for the Kodak ESP3 which stopped working about 2 weeks ago. They are both registered with Kodak. Please help me with these problems, as it is very hard to get along withouta printer for so long.

My Kodak M530 had been working alright since I bought it on December 2010 but suddenly stopped reading the SDHC card about a week ago. The card is fine because I can read the content from my Mac....


Using the internal memory locks some cameras into that mode. To get your card to work again, do this...with no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format" and follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Then, re-insert the card and it should work.

My kodak ESP3 will print and copy but it will not scan as it did just a few weeks ago.


Hi,

When some device suddenly goes haywire, the first thing to try is refreshing its driver. Drivers are just software programs, and sometimes they get corrupted.
So try updating your printer's driver. The latest version is available for free download at
http://www.kodak.com/global/mul/service/downloads/DownloadLookup.jhtml?pq-path=12666/12667&product=EKN034524
While you're at the Kodak site grabbing the current driver, look around in the FAQ and see if others have reported a similar problem - or drop Kodak a note and they should respond.
If a new driver doesn't work, try updating the scanning software (it may be updated too by now), attaching your printer to a different USB port, or changing out the USB cable - in that order.
If none of the above work, your scanner could have "gone south" - but if so, check if the warranty will cover your trouble for replacement.

Good luck!

Can't get the clean out door back on from the Kodak ESP3.


Try to download the manual of your printer so that you can see the actual position of that Rear Access Cover at the back of the printer. This is the site..

And look for your printer.. Bu the way its a PDF file...

Kodak Easyshare 5300, fatal error 3812


That's an error with the ink. Try updating the firmware on the printer. Here is the link to the latest firmware from the Kodak website.
