Question about Kodak ESP 3 Multifunction Printer/ Copier/ Scanner

1 Answer

I've changed cartridges in my Kodak ESP3 printer, and no ink is showing up on the printed page. I've held down the cancel and copy keys which is supposed to clean the printhead, but it still doesn't work. I've clicked on "computer" to find/download a solution but can't find anything that talks about Kodak printers.

I just replaced both ink cartridges in my esp3 printer. But when I print, the page comes out blank


You need a new Print Head:
Clean the printhead, then print a test page.
  1. On the control panel, press and hold Cancel + Copy/Resume simultaneously until the On/Off light flashes. The On/Off light continues to flash during the cleaning procedure.
  2. When the On/Off light glows steady, press and hold Quantity + Cancel simultaneously until the On/Off light flashes, then wait for the test page to print.
  3. Review the printed test page and verify that:
    • the left color blocks are gray, cyan, and black.
    • the right color blocks are magenta, yellow, and black.
    • each block is completely filled with color.
    • Is the test page blank?
  4. 1-800-421-6699,Call Kodak to Report Code BP03

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response.

Thanks, Joe

Kodak Easyshare 5300 printer will not print black


Print a self test diagnostic page to check the status of the black ink and print heads.

To print the self-test diagnostic page

Control panel: Press (Configuration Page button), or press and hold the (Cancel button) for 3 seconds.

For models that support networks: Press (Configuration Page button).

If these are all showing OK then clean the printheads

To clean the printheads
If printed characters are incomplete, or dots or lines are missing from printouts, ink nozzles might be clogged and you might need to clean the printheads.

NOTE: Cleaning uses ink, so clean the printheads only when necessary.

The cleaning process takes up to 3.5 minutes. Some noise might be generated in the process.
Control panel: Press and hold (Power button), press (Cancel button) two times, press (Resume button) one time, and release (Power button).

If this fails then replace the black cartridge and run a clean cycle again and then a self test diagnostic then try printing again.

Esp3 printer, has new cartriges, printing very fient


Have you tried the maintenance tool - if you open the kodak printer status monitor in your taskbar (next to the clock); at the top right hand side you will see an icon showing crossed hammer and spanner, click on this and run the tools from top down (dont need to do the test page).
If that doesnt work you could try this:-
my new esp3 printer (replaced due to not printing black) came with a suppliment document for action if no black or faint print appears!!:
verify paper is loaded into paper tray then press and hold the Cancel and Copy/Resume buttons simultaneously until the On/Off light flashes -apparently this fixes the no black/faint issue.
hope this helps

Need to clean the heads but can't find instructions to do it.


To clean the printhead press: COPY and CANCEL at the same time.
To print a test page press: QUALTITY and CANCEL at the same time.
Go to Kodak AIO home center, click on the"?" and open the "user guide" for the complete manual. Wish they put in a printed version, put they don't. Good luck with the printer, mind has been nothing but problems. And keep trick of what you print. You will be shocked at the low output. Report it to Kodak and they might sent you new inks.
