My mother-in-law and my mom have both recently bought this printer. They have had nothing but problems since they got them. Yes, it does print beautiful pictures...when it prints. They have both had the same problem in that no black in would print. They both had to get new print heads. Since then, my mother-in-law has not really had any major problems other than the paper jams a lot. My mom though, has only had the printer for about two weeks, and she is already having a second major problem. (First no black ink printed,got the new print head, worked for a few days.) Now, all of the photos are printing with green tint to them. My brother lives out of state, and my mom prints and sends pictures to him EVERYDAY! Now, she cannont. We are all very dissapointed with this printer. I would not recommend it to anyone.
I have just bought my esp5 printer. I have exactly the same problems. the black prints one page then the rest of the sheets come through blank. also the printer cant decide how many sheets to take. My last printer may have been expensive to run, but at least it worked. This printer will be returned to Argos ASAP.
Bought First ESP5 from PC World. The top would not stay up & Hence had a return visit to PC World for another one. Now we forever experience paper being chewed up. Need to find receipt for full refund. A Strong DO NOT BUY.
I have had the Kodak ESP 5 printer for 2 years and in that time have had 3 new printheads and the latest has broken again. Kodak's response to my complaint is as follows "Thank you for your email regarding the Kodak AiO printhead issue.We isincerely apologise for al lthe experience you had with this printer however atthis point theres not much we can do.Please contact us for any further assistance of any other nature besides this one""
At first my printer was fine, then started printing with colours missing, then paper just blank as if was printing but wasn't. Was eventually sent a new print head, that didn't work, took back to PC world, they rang Kodak as they were going to change it for me and then Kodak said they had sent me a new printer and couldn't redirect to PC world so I had to wait for delivery at home. This didn't happen and it turned out they hadn't sent one. Eventually got my new (I think reconditioned) one today, installed it and guess what? blank pages, it doesn't work. I have original receipt and will be going to PC world with printer and demand a refund. Its a rubbish printer and Kodak customer service system is terrible. PC world sold me an advent AIO printer which is £25.00, I think it is their own make and it is brilliant. Same cartridges and software as Kodak printer but it works and is cheap.
What's the best printer for you?
