    I have a epson Stylus R220 and until recently has worked fine. Now it will feed the tray in but then it pushes it all the way out. Any ideas, do I need a need a Tray?

    I have the same problem. Bought a new style tray but it still won't even take the tray in a bit. Just kicks it out and the center red light comes on solid and the green flashes. The software says to remove tray/realign then push red lit button on printer. Pushing this button does nothing at all. I have to cancel print, close tray door and reset printer. Nothing I've tried works...HELP!

Hey Nala1, Try a print job again, but this time try helping the tray into the printer with a little push. Be gentle and do not try to force it in. If the tray is taken in and works fine, you should try cleaning the rubber roller at the front of the machine that pull the tray in. If the tray feeds part way and the print head runs back and forth a couple of times before the tray is ejected again, try cleaning the white marks on the tray. Use something like windowlene (windex) and a piece of kitchen paper. Also, if you have the old style tray with the thin clear plastic strip on the leading edge, make sure it is straight and in good health.

I'm having trouble printing on cds (they won't load) with my epson stylus photo r220. I've followed the directions, lined the tray up properly. Set the settings for cd/dvd. Tried old and new software.

Depends how long you have had your printer, epson are well know for the rollers that takes the paper in getting worn, and so does the cd/dvd tray, eventually you have to push the tray in by hand to get the thing started, somtimes changing the disk tray helps, if youve got a spare one,

R220 printing on cd tray instead of disk

double check how you are inserting the tray into the printer. It should be with the cd in the holder, facing upwards and cd in first.

Epson r220 cd

You can actually buy an original software/driver cd disk for your printer if you call Epson's technical support line 562-276-4367.
As I called them it was just around 10 bucks and I have all the software bundled with my R260.
