Question about Kodak Office Equipment & Supplies

2 Answers

I have a Kodak ESP 9. I have replaced three color ink cartridges and all three have done the same thing. They work fine for the first one or two pages printed, then they print only pinks and yellows, I lose all the blue tone completely. Do I need to take into Best Buy, where it was purchased and have it repaired?

I've had this problem before also..I was told to remove the ink cartridge and take a Q-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol and gently clean the heads were the cardrige set. You may have a piece of dust, hair, etc. that acts as a plunger once the ink starts flowing which plugs the port. It worked for me. Just be very careful not to tear or break any connections. I'd try this before having to pay for repairs.

I replaced the ink and closed machine tried to copy but the replace ink keeps coming on,, what can I do?


Are you using Kodak cartridge? They have a chip that communicates with the printer. If non-Kodak ink cartridge, it may not work properly.

Kodak esp 5210 wont print black


I figured it out. If you are low on (25%) on either colors or black, then it won't print. Even if you load a new black cartridge and it reads as 100% black, it won't print because it will only print when BOTH cartridges have been replaced and reads 100%.
Same thing happens reversed with color being replaced.
So basically, ALL printers short you 25% ink and FORCE you to buy their ink more often. Kodak is no exception.
I have 100% black and 25% color and a BW only needed text paper won't print. I been through this before. *facepalm*

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

How to remove the ink cartilidge


How do I install a new printhead in my all-in-one printer? To replace the printhead in your all-in-one printer:
  1. Make sure the printer is on.
  2. Lift the printer access door and wait for the carriage to move to the access position.

    NOTE: For ESP 3250 and ESP 5250 all-in-one printers:
    • On the printer control panel, press Home.
    • Select Maintenance, then press OK.
    • Select Install Ink Cartridges, then press OK.
      If "Install Ink Cartridges" is not an available selection, upgrade the firmware.

  3. Remove any paper that may be loaded in the printer.
  4. Remove the black and color ink cartridges and set them aside.
  5. Remove the existing printhead:
    • For ESP Series Printers, unlatch the printhead by lifting the latch in the center of the carriage.

    • For 5000 Series Printers, unlatch the printhead by pressing the button in the upper-left corner of the carriage.

      5000series_printhead_removal.jpg

  6. Lift the printhead out of the carriage.
  7. Remove the new printhead from its bag.

    CAUTION: Do not touch the copper contacts on the printhead, as this may damage it.

  8. Remove the plastic protective shields.
  9. Place the new printhead into the carriage.

  10. Push firmly against the target label of the printhead until you hear a loud snap.

    seating_printhead.jpg
  11. Insert the color ink cartridge into the printhead and press down until you hear it click into place.
  12. Insert the black ink cartridge into the printhead and press down until you hear it click into place.
  13. Close the printer access door.

    The printer detects the new printhead. Follow the instructions on the LCD to calibrate your printer.
    NOTE: ESP 3 all-in-one printers do not require calibration.
IMPORTANT: Be sure to use KODAK Ink Cartridges. Your KODAK All-in-One Printer is designed to work with KODAK Ink Cartridges. Kodak is not responsible for the compatibility or performance of either non-Kodak brand ink cartridges or refilled ink cartridges. You can purchase KODAK Ink Cartridges from the KODAK Store.

ESP-9 will not recognize new cartridge


2 things to discount first

1. Are you using a new Kodak cartridge, Kodak like other printer suppliers use a recognition chip in there cartridge in an attempt to get past the refillers, try a genuine replacement cartridge

2. Is it possible that more than one cartridge needs replacement, this will also throw up the same message

If the answer to both these are No contact the supplier of the cartridge and inform them of the trouble or contact Kodak directly
