SOURCE: replacing printhead on Kodak ESP 5 Printer

you need to lift printer front access door , take both ink cartridges out,
the carrier (black piece) is called printhead.
When you see carefully at the center , there is a gray latch. you need to "pull it up", it will release the printhead.

SOURCE: Replaced printhead and ink cartiages on a Kodak ESP.3

I had my esp3 stop printing black also. I bought new cartridges even tho' I knew the ones in the printer were at least half full. Still not printing black. I finally called Kodak support and got a tech who was the first tech from India who could speak English well. He was very helpfull but in the end he told me he would send me the printer head because that was the problem. My printer was not used for about a month and the head dried up. The tech said that printer must be used about twice a week and the best way was to print the test by using the 'Scan' and 'Copy' at the same time. There was no sense telling the tech this is a huge flaw in the printer as he must have been hearing this for a long time. After I received the new printer head it prints fine. This is an absolutely huge flaw in this printer. If they can't make a different style of head for this printer these will stop being used................. So if you have the ESP3 (I don't know about the other models) and don't use it often the head will dry up and you can't clean it (according to the tech I talked to). Kodak should send these free for the life of the machine in my opinion.

SOURCE: Kodak ESP 7 all-in-one printer. I have just replac...

I have had the same issue - only bought my ESP7 last month - have been on the chat support with Kodak in US and they advise that the print head will need replacing but they couldnt send one from US and advised me to ring the 0870 Kodak support number in UK - this is a premium line and lucky I took out an instant replacement policy when I bought it so I am off to PC world to get another! Good luck with yours - suggest you phone Kodak and ask for a print head replacement which should be free if you have had the printer less than 12 months - make sure you have the serial number of the printer with you when you phone. Good luck!

Www kodak com go support

We threw our 6150 into the trash (Florida does not recycle electronics) because it would not print correctly, even after we installed a new printhead and all new cartridges.

I recommend you cut your losses.

Why scanner is not scanning.

The very first thing to diagnose such issues is: make sure if your printer is communicating with your computer and you are able to print at least. You can try to copy some stuffs to make sure the printer/scanner is functioning fine and it's causing issues with computer. You should installed the updated driver/firmware as well.

Kodak esp office 6150 printing blank pages

Here's how I fixed my Kodak AIO 6150.
  1. 1. Remove cartridges
  2. 2. Remove the print head - lift up on the grey tab just above the bullseye - it'll pop right out - no tools needed.
  3. 3. Soak in alcohol - NOT RUBBING alcohol - Isopropyl 91% only for 1-2 hours - shake often.
  4. 4. Let it dry for at least 2-3 hours.
  5. 5. Reinstall everything. You'll get a new printhead message.
