Got the same problem following a message "Printer ink failure" code 0xc19a0035. Instructions say to shut down using button on/off. But printer refused to shutdown. After 30 minutes, I disconnected power cable. Removed cartridges. Reloaded cartridges. Reconnected power cable and got "Improper shutdown" message with continuous cycle. Solution: 1. While the printer is still turned on, unplug all cables and cords at the back of the printer.
2. Unplug the power cord also from the wall outlet...
3. Wait for two minutes.
4. Reconnect power cord to the wall outlet first.
5. Press and hold the pound (#) and six (6) buttons.
6. While holding down the two buttons, reconnect the power cord to the back of the printer and after two seconds, release pound and six buttons.
7. Turn on the printer if it turns off... and it's fixed.
8. Be patient to let printer run its tests.

The "improper shutdown" message disappeard, but the "look for carriage jam" continued, as the printer made a gear-grinding sound as it tried to reset. When it quit moving and grinding, the carriage was almost all the way to the left. I pushed it to the extremem left (moved about 1") and went through the process again. This time, after more grinding and groaning, it began the initialization process and finished it. Works fine now.

Kodak ESP 7250 printhead cartridge jam ... How do you resolve?? I have tried everything ... Turned off ... Unplugged ... Changed cartridges ... Etc etc .... Who has this problem and had it resolved??


If possible see if you can reach inside the printer and try to release the cartridge as if you were going to change one that was empty with a full one. If you can not get it free, try and remove all of the printer cartridges and see if that helps. Jams are usually cause by the cartridge not being seat properly. Good Luck.

J01 error, but no paper jam; can't re-set


Remove the toner cartridge.

There should be 2 switch actuators sticking up from the base.

It sounds like one of these actuators has been knocked loose. Try to clip the actuator back on to the sensor.

This is a TOUGH job, you may need a sercive tech to look at it.

Says I have a paper jam when there is none


Hi,
Remove the jammed paper. Unplug the printer from the mains and PC. Inspect the rollers, etc for tiny paper piece(s) that may be stuck, or other debris. Try to clean rollers and make sure they are dry.
Keep printer unplugged for about 2 minutes and replug and try a test print.
Also make sure that you have waited long enough for the printer to heat up before giving a print job.
Finally, it could be an issue with the paper sensor. If this is the case, you will probably have to take the printer in for servicing..

Hope that helps!

Paper Jammed Message


try turning you printer off and unpluging it from Electrecity.
after that cancell all the printing jobs at your computer.
and last do a double check on the printer to make sure that there are no more paper left-overs into the printer.

try turning the printer on (after pluging to Electricity) and see what happen.

Paper Jam


I have exactly the same printer, here's how to remove jammed paper.
1. Unplug printer from mains and your computer. 2. Turn Printer around 3. There is a darker-grey panel with a knob in the middle of it. Turn the knob anti-clockwise to release the panel 4. The jammed paper should loop around the roller. Gently pull on the loop slowly until it has released fully. 5. Put the panel back on the printer and turn knob anti-clockwise to lock it into place.
Hope this helps.
