Kodak ESP 3250 ink costs see 1 answer
Could you please give me a rough idea of ink costs per A4 page which contains say 25% colour (photo) and 75% black text? (I periodically have to print 150 copies for a magazine).
Unfortunately, we're unable to provide a cost-per-page for the coverage you've quoted. This is very difficult to determine as it depends on which colours are being used, which font is used and the formatting. Our cost-per-page ratios are the same as those being qouted by the manufacturer (Kodak) and are based on 5% coverage of an A4 page. Next to the price of each item you'll notice the page yield of each cartridge and underneath we have calculated the cost in 'pence-per-page' based on our current prices.Answered by Vicky Lush (Staff Member) - over 2 years ago
Replacing the Kodak 10C colour cartridge see 1 answer
I mostly only use black ink and very rarely use colour, yet my Kodak ESP 3250 printer will not work unless I keep changing the colour cartridge. This I feel is very unfair as it's too costly?
You should not need to replace your Kodak 10C colour ink cartridge until it is reporting as empty. You can replace a black Kodak 10B ink cartridge without also needing to replace the colour cartridge.
We would recommend that you consult your printer manual or contact Kodak directly for advice with this issue. I have attached a link to the Kodak website below for your reference:Answered by Paul Miller (Staff Member) - over 2 years ago

Buying replacement ESP 3250 printheads see 1 answer
I've been told that I need new printheads for my Kodak ESP3250 printer (the black isn't working). I've tried to locate a site where these can be purchased but can't, I keep getting directed to printers or cartridges so please send me to a website where I can get this product?
It's unusual to need replacement printheads for your Kodak ESP3250 and this item is often very expensive. I would recommend that you confirm that this item definitely needs to be replaced before purchasing this item.

Kodak ESP 3200 series ink see 1 answer
My printer is a Kodak ESP 3200 series all-in-one. Will an ESP 3250 ink cartridge fit it as this appears to be the model number on most ink adverts?
Yes, Kodak ESP 3200 is the name of the series with ESP 3250 being the actual model number. Therefore, the Kodak 10 series ink cartridges we're listing above as compatible with the ESP 3250 printer are designed for Kodak ESP 3200 series printers.Answered by Lindsey Gough (Staff Member) - about 2 years ago
Replacing ESP3250 ink cartridges for less see 1 answer
Please could you explain why I'm having to buy colour cartridge replacements every month? I understand that I need to replace the black at the same time even if it's still full. I make greeting cards for family members only and using my printer is costing me Â£20 - 47 per month. I look forward to hearing from you. Yours sincerely, Sylvia Tilley.
The black cartridge should only need to be replaced when it's empty. If when you replace the colour cartridge the black asks to be changed, I would try removing the black cartridge and re-installing it.
The black cartridge should print approximately 425 pages and the colour approximately 420 but this is based on a page coverage of approximately 5%. Because you're printing greetings cards, which I imagine are full page coverage, your yield will be dramatically reduced. If you're looking for a way to reduce your printing costs you could consider trying the compatible premium brand cartridges which are almost half the price.Answered by Laura Tidman (Staff Member) - about 2 years ago
What colour ink cartridge do I need? see 1 answer
I have the Kodak ESP 3200 series printer?
The ESP 3200 series refers to the printer series rather than an actual priner model. Your model number is likely to be ESP 3250 and this printer takes the Kodak 10 black and colour cartridges as listed above. Please check the exact model number of your Kodak printer before ordering.Answered by Nichola Ansbro (Staff Member) - almost 2 years ago

Kodak ESP 3250 ink life see 1 answer
If you don't use genuine Kodak ink often it seems to dry up - is this true? My last ink cartridge only seemed to produce about 12 pages.
The ink in the Kodak ESP3250 cartridges can dry up. They would tend to do this if you haven't been using the cartridge for a while. However, there are ways for you to fix this. Remove the cartridge from the machine, dab the nozzle with a damp cloth until you see the ink coming onto the cloth. Then reinstall the cartridge and run a couple of prints. It should then start to print.Answered by Daniel Kelman (Staff Member) - over 1 year ago
Kodak ESP 3250 printhead cleaning see 1 answer
I can't get a good print for colour pictures either photo or paper print outs. The cartridge in my ESP 3250 seems okay but the printhead seems to be clogged. I've tried to clean it but the output is still not right. Do you do a kit to clean the printhead or can you clean it for me?
Unfortunately, we don't stock any cleaning solutions or cleaning kits and we don't offer a printer cleaning service. If you contact Kodak directly they should be able to help further. We don't supply replacement printheads for the Kodak ESP3250 and you may have to source this item directly from Kodak themselves.Answered by Vicky Lush (Staff Member) - over 1 year ago

printer will not print see 1 answer
basically it will not print. It goes through the motions, but the paper comes out completely blank. What do you think is the problem?
I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing problems with your ink cartridge. Ideally, we would like to get you back up and running today so if you can try this brief troubleshooting below, you may be printing again shortly. Of course, if this doesn't work, let us know and we will look into sending a replacement for you.
Please remove the cartridges from your printer and switch off your printer at the mains. Please allow the printer to completely shut down so it can reset. In the mean time gently wipe the chip on the cartridge with a dry, lint free cloth to remove any dust or finger prints that may be restricting the cartridge from being read by your printer.
When your printer has been switched off for a couple of minutes please turn back on and allow to fully re-boot, then re-install the cartridge and try to print.
Please let us know how you get on so we know how best to proceed.Answered by Tamara Sawyer (Staff Member) - 4 months ago

Kodak ESP 3250 Printer Review
Expert review of the Kodak ESP 3250 printer 26 April, 2011
If you’re after a printer that can produce lab-quality photographic print, without the price tag, then consider the Kodak ESP 3250 inkjet printer. This all-in-one printer is fantastic value for money: you can print, scan and copy and thanks to Kodak’s low-cost pigment ink cartridges, you can print at a fraction of the cost.
In terms of design, the ESP 3250 is, according to Kodak, an upgrade on the ESP 3. However, from the outside, the dimensions are the same (422 × 300 × 175mm) with the only difference being the addition of a larger LCD monitor on the top of the printer. There is one memory card slot at the front that takes SD cards and MemoryStick. Unfortunately there is no Wi-Fi with just a single USB port at the back, not ideal if you have a number of devices to print from.
Kodak has really set the bar when it comes to entry-level all-in-one printers. If you are in a hurry or print large documents then you’re in luck – the Kodak ESP 3250 inkjet printer churns out 30ppm for draft text documents and 29ppm for colour – making it one of the fastest, budget printers on the market. Print quality is impressive too, pictures look natural without any fading, text is equally impressive, with only slight signs of under-inking.
One area KODAK needs to pay further attention to is the quality of the scanner and copier. The ESP 3250 scanner can handle plain text documents but struggles with graphics. Photographs look slightly shadowed and lack detail that other all-in-one copiers manage to produce. The lack of wireless is another factor which Kodak needs to address, especially as the all-in-one is touted as a home printer. They also need to consider supporting other camera memory cards if they want the ESP 3250 to contend with other photo printers.
