+++++What used to be a great product is not anymore the unit i bought didn't last very long(think about 6 months) Problem is the PRINTER HEAD which is now junk+++++
Kodak is coming out of bankruptcy shortly which may explain the quality of there products in the past year or so....These new print heads are JUNK....I ended up replacing it with a Canon mx432 which amazon had best price on and fast shipping, Canon unit works great so far uses a little more ink then kodak but quality of print appears the same..
The Kodak printer I gave away before getting this one is still working perfectly, guess i should not have upgraded to the wireless Kodak that's junk........... The unit I purchased for my Daughter is still working good for now but I can only assume from what i have encountered from others locally that will change also +++++++++
Most wireless problems are not the printers problem it's your network or old router(still network issues) or how you set it up. I have reset tons of home networks that had printers(all brands) or other products having network issues, there is on occasion the new product is flawed.
Reason most printers have wireless problems, main puter or router restarting. either setup static ip addys on your router or dhcp reservations and bingo no more problems. your router can be lose power and reset all the time and your printer will always be ready as long as you don't do a factory reset on the router
This "Theoretical calculating" I read in one review is just that. It doesn't exist....I have Kodak Printers and install them for customers all the time, without problems most of the time, occasionally we get a bad print head in recent years that's been less and less at first they were a problem. BIG PROBLEM the first couple of models 5 years ago or so, Which REALLY MAKES ME QUESTION SOME OF THESE REVIEWS. A LOT OF THEM
ALL PRINTERS NOW USE THE EXACT SAME METHOD FOR MEASURING INK, PERIOD
This is a quick lesson on how this works inside the ink cartridge
Most standard printers contain ink level sensors in the form of microchips, also known as smart chips. Microchips are miniature circuits consisting of semiconductive devices and other electronic components.
These microchips, typically found on the side of the cartridge, measure the amount of ink already dispensed by counting previously printed characters. The sensors use this amount to estimate the amount of ink remaining in the cartridge.
Once an ink level sensor determines a cartridge is empty, simply refilling the empty cartridge with ink may not register the cartridge as usable by the printer. An ink cartridge chip resetter, available at many office supply and computer stores, corrects this problem by resetting the chip's gauge level.
As I stated before I have had very few problems with these units and i have installed a bunch of Kodak printers. through the years Ive installed all major brands and i can say the quality of prints from KODAK PRINTERS is by far the best with the right paper, that makes a difference with all printers.
Kodak printers are without a doubt cheaper to print then anyone's PERIOD I have customers with all brands of printers and all i can say is there is a world of difference and its not good for the competition. ONE THING the color cartridge is needed to print black sounds bad and NO IT'S NOT A SCAM if a person takes the time to research how there ink works it's pretty easy to understand has a lot to do with getting blacker blacks
I usually don't post on these sites but i have started purchasing from amazon recently on a consistent basis and when reading these reviews it's pretty easy to tell when posters are from competitive companies or really don't even have the product at all but have loyalties to there favorite BRAND NAMES
remember one thing Brand names are just that, I could care less what the name is as long as it PERFORMS
Kodak has performed for me rather well
I'm purchasing the 2170 model today for my daughter who graduated from Graphics design and loves the crisp colors on my printer.
oh the print head problems most people encounter is from not reading instructions completely and installing as per instructions just be careful installing it. watched one customer try slamming it in place needless to say she had problems with that printer from then on. Its not a big deal to install them just be careful
Wish I would had bought more from Amazon earlier. the AMAZON PRIME is awesome "FREE 2 DAY SHIPPING" plus free instant videos what a deal...
After barely printing 25 pages of assorted black-and-white and colour pages, the printer is now useless. Here's why: The print head has stopped supplying Cyan ink during the printing process. This means the printer cannot effectively print anything in colour, and even black prints come out as an ugly faded brown because the printer is designed to mix in colour ink even during all black printing so that your colour cartridges eventually become depleted and need replacing whether you are printing in colour or not.
I have removed the print head and cleaned it with no improvement in print quality. I have read many reviews of this printer where other consumers have experienced the same issues with the print head. Apparently the print heads have a design flaw which causes many of them to quickly malfunction shortly after their initial use. I have no intention of contacting Kodak and subjecting myself to the stress of some off-shore contractor giving me the usual scripted corporate runaround. I will throw the printer on the junk pile and cut my losses, never purchasing another Kodak product as long as live.
Also be aware of two important things: 1) The Kodak ink is cheaper because the cartridges contain very little product, and the Printer drains them dry after minimal use. 2) Even if you have a full black ink cartridge, the Kodak ESP Office 2170 is designed not to operate if the printer detects the colour cartridge is getting low. As I stated earlier in this review, the Kodak ESP Office 2170 uses colour ink even when printing an all black document or picture in order to force you to order new colour ink cartridges even if you never print in colour, shutting down even black and white printing until you replace the colour cartridge. Of course the colour ink cartridges are substantially more expensive than the black ink cartridges.
I am already boycotting HP because they design many models of their printers to shut down if you don't replace your ink cartridges within a pre-programmed time-limit, even if the cartridges are full. These printers will not function until you install new cartridges which contain embedded chips specific to your model.
I am now boycotting Kodak for similarly deceptive business practices, apart from the defective engineering of the Kodak ESP Office 2170.
Can no one provide the consumer with a reliable printer with reasonably priced ink?
what a disappointment , guess i'm going to buy a new printer , it's been to long to send this one back , I can promise you it will not be a Kodak !!, so please buy something other then this printer !!
