Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

I have an ESP 7 All in One printer, which I bought a year ago for a Christmas Present. The printer works fine, but the red color has faded. I have run the clean printhead program, but there was not any inprovement. I just purchased the same printer for my daughter for this Christmas, and the prints form it are fine. What should I do to improve the quality of prints from my printer?

Sounds like the printhead needs replacing. If all the cleaning doesn't work and you're using new carts, then it could well be that.

If, however, you haven't used it for some time, they are prone to block up solidly with dry ink.

.i used to have get good bright colored pix but


Try removing the print head again, removing the ink and re-cleaning the print head. Once it has been cleaned leave it to air dry for a few days before returning it to your printer and make sure the ink cartridges are fully clipped in. Let me know how you get on.

The printer won't print out any of the reds in my images, even when the colour cartridge has just been replaced, and prints any red areas in yellow instead.


Hi is this a new printer? If you've just installed a new color ink, it would prompt you to align the cartridge or print some test page.. If the RED doesnt show on the test page, then try to perform maintenance on it.. Like Clean cartridge or clean print head.. it may be clogged.. if it still does this, try changing the color ink.. If you color ink is from a stock, it may have dried up.. if you bought it just days ago, ask for a replacement.. If all has been done, it maybe the printer itself..

Hope this helps.. :D

This printer has stopped printing reds and oranges correctly ? they are faded. Changed the toners & no difference


Print a "Config Report" from the printers menu...If u notice that the fourth square on the left side (fourth being the bottom square) for Magenta (reds and orange) is missing or very faded, this could indicate that the optical mirrors inside the printer have to be cleaned...Design flaw. ESP..if changing toners doesn't work and your your faded issue is with Magenta (Pink, red, or orange) colours are the only faded ones...With this design flaw in the optical mirrors, magenta mirror is the first to be affected!
Hope this helps!!!! I work in the industry :)

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

My Canon Pixma i90v has been working great for a year and now all of a sudden the color cartridge isn't working. I've done a print head cleaning and a deep clean. The test print shows that the black works...


If the printer is not worn out, one of the first things to try is to remove the printer in the computer settings. Reboot the computer and reinstall the printer software. This ensures that you have not gotten bad or corrupted drivers.

Black ink won't print.


My printer worked fine since April but this week, I could not print. Thought my ink had dried up although I only replaced it just before christmas.

Bought new ink, installed it and still nothing. Calibrated, cleaned etc. etc. re-installed the disk to do maintenance and after several frustrating hours trying to fix it, I called my local Staples, the store at which I purchased this printer to ask for help.

First of all he said, what printer is it, black or white. I responded white to which he said okay that identifies the model for me. I am sorry to tell you that Kodak has acknowledged a problem with their print heads and have sent us several to replace the faulty ones. I said lovely, I wished I had known that several frustrating hours ago and he responded that it was his understanding that Kodak was going to announce this to all registered owners via a bulletin. Unfortunately I did not get it so wasted a lot of time. He requested I come in and get the new print head or if need be bring in the printer and they would install it for me. I am pleased with the store's response but not very happy with Kodak's lack of committment to get the word out.

Hope this helps.

Kodak 5100 will not print consistently


I am currently having the same problem with a 17" iMac Intel Core Duo.  The printer worked fine for a few months, now it will only print in black and white and sometimes in color that is extremely faded.  I have tried every troubleshooting tip in the book and still no luck.
