Hi!

You can try cleaning the contacts from the printer and the ink cartridge. The dirt and dried ink usually prevents the printer from detecting your cartridge. Using a cotton bud moistened with alcohol. clean the contact surface of the cartridge and the terminals at the printer. Just make sure you don't break any terminal contact wire from the printer when you do this.

I read some procedures but I have actually not use of this, but might work for you to reset your printer. It says that if you can able to initialize your printer and give it a command to print, and wait for the error to appear.....press the Cancel to print. This will reset your printer.... I just hope this works for you.

Normally you will need to let the printer know that you have preformed any maintenance on it by clearing the error count after such an error occurs and is fixed it is normally listed under general or service options on the printer menu but you may need to look through the users manual

hope this helps

I have had the same issue - only bought my ESP7 last month - have been on the chat support with Kodak in US and they advise that the print head will need replacing but they couldnt send one from US and advised me to ring the 0870 Kodak support number in UK - this is a premium line and lucky I took out an instant replacement policy when I bought it so I am off to PC world to get another! Good luck with yours - suggest you phone Kodak and ask for a print head replacement which should be free if you have had the printer less than 12 months - make sure you have the serial number of the printer with you when you phone. Good luck!

My kodak esp 3 won't doesn't recognize the new black ink we put in


I'm having this same problem with both black and a color cartridge. I see the small scratches, so looks like they are connecting all right. The new cartridges are Kodak brand, so that's not the problem.
I'll try calling them about the print head if that might be the problem.

I was recently given a 5300 all-in-one printer.I want to replace the ink cartridges. I bought ink(kodak) and want to make sure it is correct before I open the box. I bought an ink combo pack for an...


You got it right - the Kodak EasyShare 5300 All-in-One uses 10 series Kodak cartridges, and
since your box says 10B+10C, it has (2) 10-series cartridges in it - one 10-series Black (10B), and
one 10-series Color cartridge (the 10C).

The 10 Series Ink cartridges are compatible with:
EasyShare 5000 series (your All-in-One belongs here)
ESP 3/5/7/9
ESP 3200/5200/7200/9200 Series
ESP Office 4100/6100

silly question, you remembered to remove the plastic film off the connectors right? i realize you did 2 different cartridges but hey sometimes thing get messed up lol. it may be a faulty cartridge, you should be able to return it if that's the case. the only way to know for sure is to take it back and get a different one. if that's the case problem solved, you could always power down the printer completely after installing the cartridges and rebooting it

How can I over ride my ink level tracker on the Kodak ESP 7 printer? The printer must be using a counter because I never print in color but my color cartridge keeps showing that it is going down. ...


The Kodak printers are designed in such a way so as to work with combination of Both color and black ink..In other printers,the prints are not that sharp,but In kodak printers color are awesome because even if we print black and white,the color from the color ink is also taken to give you those lifetime prints.Unfortunately There is no way to overcome this ink indicator.You cans et the preferences in the printer settings to print in black and white in your computer .
