I want to print on a CD (12cm diameter). I've followed the steps that are set out in the ON-SCREEN manual, but it continually tells me to close the inner cover, which if done negates the possibility of using the "F" tray. Am I supposed to tell the printer that I actually want to use the "F" tray.
I've gone on line to find the solution, and bumped into nothing but postings as to how bad this printer is. Have I bought a lemon ???
I have an ip2700 and was having the same issue, however all you need to do is press print (on what ever printing program you are using) then when you get the orange flashing, remove the cd tray and shut the door. The press the resume button. you should be then prompted by an message on your computer to insert the tray again and it just works.. go figure.. its possible you can just skip the first bit and insert the cd tray when prompted.. but I haven't tried as yet.

Sorry a little late only just read your problem. The location is not the bottom tray feeder but the disk tray. In settings change your media type to "Printable Disk" the paper scource should automatically change to "Disk Tray" and hopefully every thing will work OK.
