Why do I keep getting error message (Code 3524)

The Kodak ESP 3 is an all-in-one photo color inkjet printer.
just where the ink holder sits move it to the side manually and you should see a sponge holder thing i think it is for cleaning the ink, beside it is a gear usually abit dirty with ink, this is the gear that has come out of sync. So get a screw driver and try to move it, then press ok try this again and again, also move the ink spongie thing up or down too and keep fiddling with these to parts until it starts to work again. If and when working go to maintenance and go through and select all the options
Wow! There was a guy who had a video on YouTube, with about a half hour of instruction on how to take the machine apart to get to the area that you mentioned, but after I gave up on him (didn't have that much time or ambition), I found your answer here, and I grabbed a screwdriver. After lighting up the area with my cell phone, I found a gear that looked like it hadn't been moving, and I forced it to move, then moved another gear, just to be safe, closed up the machine -- and it was cleared of all error messages. I am SO excited! Thank you so much!
OMG! This is one of those "little problem, little hammer" solutions, but it worked. I messed with the gear near the sponge on the far left side. Had to do it twice, but it worked. I then ran clean print head, calibrate and the like and it's good as new. All gunked up inside, so I might attempt to clean all of the crap out over the weekend, but at least I'm getting work done. Funny but amazing.
So far tried everything on this page. Can’t get the small gear to move. My hand are black from the ink. Seems like the black was just running out of the cartridge. Was always out of black now I know why. Probably be buying a new printer, this one isn’t that old but never really liked it.
