Question about Kodak ESP 5 Printer

1 Answer

Hi a member of my family has a Kodak esp7 all in one printer. it suddenly refused to print. the status monitor displayed a red x I got it working again. further investigation showed the printer had been disconnected. I just would like to know does the red x mean the printer is disconnected or disabled? Thanks for clarification on this.

    Thanks for your answer. we tried switching printer and laptop off and on again but it didn't clear the red x there were no paper jams. I was wondering does the kodak esp 7 receive updates were it needs the usb lead connected? This printer normally is a wireless connection. other than that i can only think the kodak software crashed. i updated the kodak software from their site to fix the issue. Also cleaned the printheads. Thankyou.

that seems to just be a general error. it is probably disconnected, out of paper, paper jammed, etc. You should get a more detailed error message.

if you just get a red x just press OK / enter, or reconnect it or turn it off and on again.

    well again you should get a error message if there is a problem with spesifics pointing you to the right direction.

    Running the setup or updating the software reconnects the printer and it should work normally if its just disconnected for some strange reason.

Ho do i know which ink cartridge is low

the easiest way is to send a print job to printer. If any cartridge is empty, the printer should refuse to print and display an error message. This should indicate which cartridge is empty/not recognised - with a red X above the empty colour. Another way is to go to 'printer properties' then 'maintenance' page and click on 'Status monitor' button.
Hope this helps & good luck with it.

When prints come out the landscape is all white .sky and sea ok. photos comes out with lines on them

Verify that the ink cartridges are not damaged and are completely seated in the printhead:
  1. Lift the printer access door, then remove the ink cartridges from the printhead.
  2. Verify that the labels on the ink cartridges are intact, and that the cartridges are not damaged.
  3. Verify that the KODAK Ink Cartridges have not been refilled.
  4. Insert the black ink cartridge into the printhead, then press down firmly until you hear it click into position.
    For more information view Installing the Printhead and Ink Cartridges:
  5. Insert the color ink cartridge into the printhead, then press down firmly until you hear it click into position.
  6. Close the printer access door.
  7. Check the printer status monitor on your computer (or the LCD screen on the printer) to determine if there is sufficient ink available for your print job.

    NOTE: When the "Black ink cartridge is low" or "Color ink cartridge is low" message is displayed, print quality can be affected.
  8. Reprint the picture or document that had the quality problem.

Kodak ESP7 - Stops printing after first request.

Go on kodak web site and down load updated drivers for this thing.  Close non-essential running applications in the background if you got an old slow processor chip in your computer.
