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

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.

My Kodak printer ESP3 is not printing. It keeps flashing over the 3 color tear drops (red,green,purple). Ive powered it on and off several of times as well as checking the cords.


This 3 color drop flashed when the color ink cartridge needs to be replaced.

If the cartridges were out of the printer in the open air,they might have gone dry. Try to reseat cartridges 2-3 times,if isssue persists,get a new colour ink as Kodka will certainly not replace the ink for you.

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

Dead printer after replacing Cartridges in Kodak ESP3 AiO Printer


You should never use a COMPATIBLE ink cartridge or a ink cartrdge from different manufacturer......if you do then you are damaging your printer yourself and no one can help you not even kodak tech support.........try using genuine ink cartridge if you look on side of the ink cartridge then you will see a code which will indicate if its genuine or not try and match those codes with the codes that i will mention if it does not match then its not genuine...........
