My kodak esp 6150 prints blank pages. I bought new ink and new print head and still prints and copies blank. Kodak support says I need new printer but there has to be a way to fix it. It was fine one day...


if u can't clean the print head and there is ink in the cartridge, then a new printer is in the plan.
try cleaning head by placing a pad soaked in alcohol (not Tequila) on the head for a while then gently wiping it clean. If u can remove other parts that r full of ink to clean them do that - careful that ink will get everywhere.

My printer only prints color..have installed new black cartridge but still only prints color so installed another new black cartridge and still only prints color


Unlike most printers where the print cartridge and printheads are attached and sold together, the ESP 3 has a separate printhead from the cartridges.

Remoe both cartridges. Then look at the place where the cartridges sit. There is a latch you push down in the back. This will release the printhead to allow it to be removed.

Remove the print head

Take a cotton swap and a little alcohol and clean the printhead of all ink. Repeat this until it is totally clean.

Make sure the printhead is dry and clean of all ink and alcohol.

Replace the printhead.

Place cartridges in and test.

If this does not work, then you need a new printhead for this printer.

here is an example of how to remove and replace printheads for thsi unit.

to gt a new printhead you must contact kodak

probably as expensive or almost as expensive as a new printer.

The seperate printhead from the carts are why kodak can have their ink so cheap. Those other brands cost that extra 15-20$ for the attached new head with each cart.

Printing but blanks


did the print out improve after your clean the head?
If all fails, try this last method.. take out all the ink and switch on the printer, when the printer detected no ink, it will ask you to insert the ink cart. Put back the ink cart and let the printer do ink charging.. pls make sure there is ink in the cart else it will damage the head.
After the ink charging, print a nozzle check and see if there is any improvement.

Print Head Alignment test produces only a blank page.


Yes head probably clogged. You can try cleaning head multiple times, I think this is a pigment ink machine, so get only these carts for it

Damm printer


did you use generic ink carts before?

It seems that the ink has clogged the whole print head.

Do use original brother ink carts which have special cleaning fluid within the ink.
After that run the manual ink cleaning procedure by pressing ink etc.
Make sure that all carts are placed well and are secured.
