Question about Kodak ESP 5 Printer
I have replaced my Kodak ESP Printer head twice in two years. I'm with who ever said Kodak refuses top acknowledge the problem. The customer service told me that all printers have problems and they get very few complaints. I dont think I'm buying anymore Kodak products.

Find the "menu" button on your printer. Push it to open the available options. Use the up and down arrows on your printers key pad to move from choice to choice. Look for something similar to "maintenance" in these settings and push the "ok" button on the printers keypad to open this area. When you open the maintenance area, use the up and down arrows to find the "clean print head" option and choose "ok" from the printers keypad. When you open this option, follow the prompts by answering the questions and it will walk you through cleaning the machine. When finished it will have you check your print quality and make sure that it does not need to repeat the cleaning again. Once the print quality is acceptable to you, I would suggest using the "align print head" option also available in the maintenance area options and follow the instructions to configure this too.

Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Press and hold Cancel and Copy button simultaneously until the
On/Off light flashes green. you will see a flashing green on your printer it means its now cleaning the printhead
You can also clean a printhead using computer., first you need to launch the Home center software On your computer and on the uppr right corner of the windows of the software click help icon(?) then go to maintenance and under maintenance you should see the clean printhead. GudlucK!

Testimonial: "Good advice, thanks - had already tried this tho'. I ended up phoning Kodak helpline and am having a new print head sent to me FOC."
Call Kodak @1800 421 6699 and get a new printhead free of cost.....Printhead has gone bad and it is the part in which we install the ink cartridges.It takes the ink out of the cartridges and spit the ink on the papers,...Cheers and Enjoy.

you may try to clean the printhead and recalibrate the printer. if this will not correct the problem, you need to replace the printhead. I suggest contacting Kodak technical support to have a replacement printhead.
