When you buy a new printer you have to remove all the pieces of card and other stuff that stops moving parts being damaged, if you havent removed these before turning it on you may have damaged the printer, turn it off, remove all the packaging that could be causing a block and switch it back on again.

Alarm continues to flash no jams, cords are where


6A00 means the purge assembly is jammed. Look inside to the right where the printhead rests when turned off. Remove any paper scraps. Otherwise you need a new purge unit

Kodak ESP-3 Printer Red Flashing Light


Couple of things.
1. Look inside the printer by the print head. On one side you should see a felt pad of some sort. Make sure this has not come loose. If it has, it can block the path of the print head and will read paper jam. I have seen this mostly with the ESP 5, but I suppose the same could happen with the 3.

2. This way is kind of long but will clear a lot of problems. Open the top of the printer and remove both cartridges and the print head. Unplug the power supply and close the printer. Wait about 30 seconds. Now plug the power back in and wait until the printer stops moving inside. Open the printer and instal just the print head. Unplug and wait 30 seconds. Repeat this procedure with installing the black, then the color. Make sure you unplug for 30 seconds and wait for the internal parts to stop moving between each step. his should fix everything. It has worked for me several times. These really are a decent printer, just a little glitchy sometimes.

3. Make sure a paper has not gotten wadded up and is hidden inside to the left or right of the print head. I have seen this twice in the ESP 3.

Hope this helps.

Canon Pixma IP600D - error code 6502


Sometimes the Canon printers which use PG-5BK/CL-8 colour cartridges with chips will give error massages like 6502 or other types of error message to do with the cartridges, which has the orange light flashing and the printer will not work. Follow this procedure which quite often resets the printer and allows it to resume printing.

When error is indicated, turn power switch off so green light is extinguished.

First hold down resume button and then hold down power button so both are held down at same time

When green light comes on, continue holding down power button and let resume button go, then press resume button twice. Then let power button go.

Then press resume button four times, power button should be released before doing this.

Wait until printer settles down, if power is off, turn on. If power will not come on, remove power cord from back of printer, then wait 15 seconds before plugging back in again and turn power on. This normally solves the error problem - if not go through same procedure again.

Incidentally, you may find that if the chips had previously been disabled, the low ink warnings are showing again and they will have to be disabled once more. This would indicate that the above procedure clears the firmware memory of the disabling of the chips, this may be useful if you need some warranty work done on your
printer after the chips had been disabled.
