I just downloaded OS X Yosemite and my Kodak ESP 7 all in one printer stopped printing from Safari. I've gone through all the maintenance steps to update my driver and check internal printer problems and I get good test prints from the tests but noting will print from mail or Safari. How do I fix it?
Kodak has posted an unsupported hack that has been reported to enable printing to a Kodak printer not supported in OS X 10.10 ("Yosemite"). Perhaps it would have the same effect with some other kinds of printers that aren't supported in Yosemite. I have no information about that, one way or the other.
I have not tested the hack myself and I don't know all the possible effects. As far as I know it will not break the compatibility of printing software that is already compatible with Yosemite. It may degrade the security of the web administration interface of CUPS. That interface is not enabled by default, and will not be enabled by the procedure described here. Even if it were enabled, I know of no way it could be exploited, with or without the modification. Nevertheless, if you have enabled the web administration interface, you should disable it if you decide to follow these instructions. If you don't know what the web administration interface is, you haven't enabled it.
I called apple support and they didn't have an answer for me. In their view it was my responsibility to check out my printer before loading the Yosemite and Kodak needed to work out a driver that would work with them. Wow. I guess I just had this great faith that Apple would have worked this out with a company as big as Kodak but that's life. I already loaded my iPhoto so I can't even go back to what I had without not being able to use my photos. I am really disappointed with this whole mess. I have to buy a new printer or go to the library or someplace with a compatible printer. This isn't too easy with an IMAC. Thanks for your comments. There really isn't an answer for me I guess.
Kodak isn't in the printer business anymore. There is another thread here where someone posted that Kodak would contract to have the drivers updated, but that's the only viable solution from Apple's point of view since these changes in Yosemite are security related.

Inside the box, you find the printer, nicely wrapped and padded (as shown in Figure 2). You will also find the ink cartridges covered in plastic and the print head encased in foil, as shown in Figure 3.
Unpacking the box and the printing materials reveals the printer itself, shown in Figure 4, along with other materials, shown in Figure 5. These include the Kodak black ink cartridge, Kodak color ink cartridge, paper sample pack, power supply, adapter cord, Startup Guide, and Kodak Printer Software for the PC and the Mac. The sample pack includes 5 sheets of 4" x 6" (10 x 15 cm) Kodak Ultra Premium Photo Paper and 10 sheets of letter-sized (8 " x 11", 216 279 mm) Ultimate Paper.
Kodak's ESP 7 lets you print crisp text documents or colorful, long-lasting photos from anywhere in your home or office. This versatile all-in-one printer features built-in Wi-Fi, so multiple users on a wireless PC network can enjoy easy access. It's more than just a printer, too — the ESP 7 also makes quick work of all your scanning and copying tasks. And if you've seen Kodak's "printervention" commercials on TV, you know that their highly affordable replacement ink cartridges help you save big on printing costs.
Easy image transferPrinting your photos is a snap. The ESP 7 connects directly to most newer digital cameras via a handy, front-panel USB input. Or, you can pop your camera's memory card into the printer's built-in card reader. The big 3" viewscreen makes it easy to select the photos you'd like to print. You'll get vivid 4" x 6" borderless photos in as little as 28 seconds. Or delight your friends and family with large, beautifully detailed 8-1/2" x 11" prints created just for them. The ESP 7 also hooks up to any computer with a USB port for printing pictures and text documents.
Control Panel: The ESP7 has a large intuitive control panel with an adjustable angle. In addition to the 3" LCD monitor, the control panel has numerous control buttons and status icons for most of the printer's operations.
Memory Card Slots: The printer has multiple slots on the front panel for inserting memory cards. Only one memory card can be read at a time. The ESP7 supports the following memory cards, used in most digital cameras:
USB Interface: The printer has two USB ports. The front-panel USB (Type A) is for connecting external devices to the printer. This USB 2.0 Full Speed port can be used with PictBridge-compliant cameras and USB Flash Drives. The rear-panel USB (Type B) is for connecting the printer to your computer, and is USB 2.0 High Speed compliant.
Ink Cartridges: The ESP7 uses a 6-color, 2-cartridge pigment-based ink system. There is a dedicated black ink tank for text, and another 5-color (including black) cartridge for photos. You can monitor ink levels on the control panel, and in the printer software. You can purchase the ink cartridges separately (738BLACK and 738COLOR) or in a combo pack (738COMBO).
Duplexer: The ESP7 has a built-in duplexer, which saves paper by allowing you to print on both sides of the page. Two-sided printing is possible on plain paper only, and requires the printer to be connected to a computer.
Auto-Detect Media: The printer can automatically detect plain paper, photo paper, and transparencies. When Kodak Photo paper is used, the barcode on the back of the paper is detected and the image quality is optimized automatically for best results.
PictBridge: You can connect this printer directly to any PictBridge-compliant digital camera. PictBridge is a standard that allows you to connect a PictBridge-compliant digital camera directly to a PictBridge-compliant printer and make prints, regardless of brand.
Overview: The ESP7 can scan text and images and convert them into electronic data, which is sent to your computer. The printer must be connected to a computer in order to scan using the ESP7. You can scan to the Kodak Home Center (included in the software), a memory card or USB flash drive connected to the front panel of the printer, to a third-party scanner software application, or as a file on your computer.
Kodak All-in-One Printer Software: The ESP7 comes with the Kodak All-in-One Printer Home Center Software on CD-ROM. The software is compatible with your Windows XP or Vista computer or your Macintosh OS X computer. With the software you can:
The ESP 3 has a sleeker design than the original Kodak printers, thanks to a black case and a slightly shrunken size: 6.9 by 16.6 by 11.8 inches (HWD). Inside, however, not much has changed from last year's models, with the same ink system as before, the same low claimed cost per page, and similar speed and output quality.
It can print, scan, and copy, and it can print directly from PictBridge cameras, but it can't print directly from memory cards or USB keys. On the other hand, the memory card slots on the front panel let you transfer files from memory cards to your computer, and then print them, and you can do the same with files on USB keys, using the PictBridge connector. So although you're losing a little convenience by not being able to print directly, you're not losing any important capabilities. And the feature's absence means that the printer doesn't need a color LCD for previewing photos or the electronics to process the files that are on the memory card or USB key, all of which saves some money and helps keep the AIO's price down.
Setup is easy. Remove the packing materials, load paper, install the printhead and ink cartridges, and plug in the power cord. Then connect a USB cable to your computer and run the automated installation routine. I installed the printer under Windows XP, but according to Kodak the distribution disc includes drivers for Vista, and there's a separate disc for Mac OS X 10.4.8 and above. Kodak also sells an optional external Bluetooth adapter ($49.99 direct) for printing from camera phones and other Bluetooth devices.
The ink cartridges are the same as in earlier Kodak printers: There's a black cartridge and a color cartridge that includes cyan, yellow, magenta, a second black ink for photos, and a clear protective coating. The clear coat fills in white space on photos to ensure an even gloss and improve durability. The claimed cost per page is the same as for the earlier printers, too, at 2.3 cents per monochrome page and 6.9 cents per color page. (The claim is a little lower than it was last year when I reviewed the 5300, based on tests that weren't yet finished when we printed that review.)
Print speed is sluggish for business applications but reasonably fast for photos. I timed it on our business applications suite at a total 21 minutes 3 seconds (using QualityLogic's hardware and software for timing, www.qualitylogic.com). That's faster than the somewhat more expensive Dell 948 All-In-One Printer, which took 26:37, but it's also notably slower than the less expensive Epson NX400, which took 15:20. The ESP 3's speed for photos is much better, averaging 1:07 for 4-by-6s and 2:12 for 8-by-10s, compared with 2:06 and 4:31 for the Dell 948, and 2:41 and 6:11 for the Epson NX400.
