Kodak Printhead Question

Can anyone give me contact information for Kodak Customer Service?
I think I need a new printhead, but cannot find anyone who can help.
I think I also need a new printhead...but do you think I can find one? I have searched Walmart, Staples, and every small computer business in my area...I can't even find one online...I have tried cleanings, printing test pages, calibrations, everything listed in the trouble shooting guide. Please don't tell me I need to buy a new printer, since I just got this one 7 months ago. I need this to work because I am an online student, so any help to get this resolved quickly is appreciated as I am getting behind. Thanks.

    Have the same problem you had, the color would print but not the black. I called the 1-800 number you provided, went through all of the "tests" and the guy said I'll send you a new print head....Didn't ask for warranty, money or anything..... Yeaaaaaaaa!!!

    Thank you for sharing your experience and for its success.... or I would have had to buy a new printer and this is not a year old.

    Thanks, Dawn

    Printer worked last night fine. Tonight my husband wanted to print something and no black ink. He has less patience with this stuff than I do & mine is limited. I got on Kodak's website and went through a diagnostic tool which eventually told me I needed a new printhead.

    So I gave them my serial # name & address and it says it will arrive in 2-5 business days FREE. I found this site because I could not believe it would not cost me a bunch. Husband going out to look for new printers! I called to stop him! :-)

    I love my Kodak EasyShare - we've had it about a year and printed probably 200 or more pictures and lots of other documents. Good value for the money and excellent quality pictures. I'm even more delighted that they will send me a new printhead for free. Only problem is we can't print anything until it gets here. Hope this solves the problem!

They don't sell these in retail stores (according to Kodak Cust. Service). I had an issue where I was not able to print out black ink. Color worked, but no black. So I called 18004216699. I then Had to patiently go through all the basic trouble shooting stuff like calibration, print head clean, demo print (push the copy button and photo button at the same time), etc. Once I went through that with them and still had the same issue, they proceeded to issue me a new print head for free, no shipping charges or anything. Just did this today, but they say I should have the print head in 3 days.

For once, service worked like it should! And to boot, they are sending new black and color ink cartriages! Good job Kodak!

Hello pwisor,

1 800 421 6699 and then choose option 1 for image quality... They'll send the printhead for about 1-3 business days. I guarantee you that!

Or e-mail

Printheads are difficult to find. The best thing I have found is to contact the manufacturer of your printer and see if they can point you in the right direction. Since you have a Kodak printer, their customer service number is 1-800-421-6699, and their open from 9 A.M. to midnight Eastern time, 7 days a week. This number will be directed straight toward the printer customer service rep. I hope this will help out.

Thanks everyone, this worked for me as well. I called and in about 10 minutes I had a new print head and ink cartridges sent overnight air to me.

Bad printheads, 5300 & ESP7

Have your tired to update the firmware of the printer at make sure if you update the printer it must connected to your computer and it must turn On.,

If you will clean the printhead make sure its always deep clean and also you need to calibrate it also. I know you already familiar how to do it since you already contacted the Customer support.

You can always call Customer support., And if you experienced same problem using a printhead just less than a month and you updated the firmware it means the printer itself is the defective.

Hope this will help

My Kodak 5500 all in one prints blurry pics. I

Clean the printhead, then print a demo sheet.
  1. Verify that inkjet paper is loaded in the paper trays.
  2. On your desktop, start the KODAK All-in-One Home Center, then select the Help [?] icon.
  3. From the Help menu, select Maintenance, then select Printhead Cleaning. The On/Off light flashes green during the cleaning procedure.
  4. When the On/Off light glows a steady green, press Photo and Copy simultaneously to print a demo sheet.
Is the Demo printout giving the same result?

If so, you may need to replace the printhead. This is a very common problem with this model.
You have to contact Kodak to be sent a new printhead to fix the problem. You click through the support on Kodak and then they automatically send out a new print head. To get the link to this on-line support chat with the live tech support and they can direct you where to go to find this solution. I dont remember the web link they directed me to but once there I answered a bunch of questions and got a new printhead in the mail pretty quick (no cost to me) and as of yet its been fixed.
Or Call Kodak:
Live phone support is available in English and Spanish at 1-800-421-6699, 9 A.M. to midnight Eastern time, 7 days a week.
When you get the printhead, here is how to replace it:

Kodak ESP-3 Will not print calibration page. It goes thru the motions, spits out blank paper. This is supposed to happen prior to connecting to computer or installing software. Tried two printheads

I have severe and often different problems with my Kodak ESP-3 printer. Sometime it`s banding of the colors, then I`ll align the printhead and I`ll have a color problem or no color at all. I just talked to Kodak Customer Service by phone, 11 a.m. PST. After a few automated questions I had a live operator in less than 3 minutes. The service tech went thru some diagnostic steps with me and the printer and after about the 5th step determined I had a faulty printer head. If the green on/off light keeps blinking when it shouldn`t be, that is a sure sigh of faulty printer head, it means the printer is not recognizing the head. Kodak seems to be very aware of this problem and are sending me a new printer head UPS, free of charge. After reading some previous reviews I`m suprised how good the customer service was. Maybe I just called at the right time and got lucky.

Kodak 5300 Printhead problems

Return the printer to the store. I had to do it myself 3 times. First I got a 5100 with the printhead error, got a replacement the day after the scanner was producing distorted  image. Upgraded to a 5300, the scanner wouldn't work at all.  To avoid problems get yourself a Canon or Epson.

Not recognizing new ink cartridge

We had the same problem from the 1st day! Finally I took out the cartridges, rapped them smartly a time or two, said four letter words at them and replaced them. They now show up as full and the blinky red lights went away. Don't know how long this will last...
