CD/DVD tray problem

I have been using the R220 for a while and I really like it. I've run about a hundred CDs and DVDs through it and now it is giving me a problem. It will print about a third of the disc and then eject without finishing. I've made sure that there is plenty of room at the rear of the unit, and I've sanded the bottom of the tray to roughen it. Nothing has worked. Anybody have any suggestions? Thanks!

    New Twist!

    Since my last post I've discovered that the problem only happens with glossy discs. Matte surface discs print fine! Any ideas?

Had the same problem .Your Cd/DVD insert tray is still partialy slipping, even though you dont notice it yourself.All you can do is rough it up a bit more until it bites in properly or buy another from Epson(not recomended £15.99) hope this helps

Well now that is interesting. Imagine all a printer can do is squirt ink What it sqirts ink on does not matter. the printer cant tell- only you can tell whether the result is good or bad So why it is only partially printing has nothing to do with the disk as such. Go to www.fixyourownprinter.com and put to them your question.

My unit is a DVP3140, purchased 2006 or 2007. As soon as I got it, I changed the code to region 0 so that I could play the DVDs I bought when I lived in Italy. It worked great for about 3.5 years of...


By changing to Region 0 you've changed the Laser control and subsequently the Laser is failing earlier than it would have done under normal operation.

The only solution would be to replace the Laser which is not normally cost effective and often unavailable anyway.

CDs may still play for a period of time as these require less power as there isn't as much information to read as a DVD.

There really isn't software that you need to burn DVDs or CDs with Windows. Use Windows Media Center to burn your CDs or DVDs.
Here are some burning software links below or you can google search for some.

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,

After printing a CD lable, I get a paper jam or CD/DVD tray jam, when the tray is already removed for the next CD. I must re power the printer to print one or two CD


Normal 0 21 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} I read from other comments that the markers on the tray must be clean. As I already printed several hundred CD/DVD the leading marker on the tray was badly marked. Tried to clean it with an eraser but I got very bad result. I tough I could paint it with some white paint but instead I use micro correction tape and white the marker. I had it working for 10 CD in a row, not bad for a cheap patch.

Where can I order a new CD/DVD tray
?

HP dvd740b does not detect blank CDs and DVDs


Hi,

i think you,ve hit the nail-on-the-head.
The laser has to power up highrer to write a DVD, or ocassionally have a dual laser. 1 for read/write CD. And 1 For Read/Write DVD.
Certain cd roms, only use CD- media. it,s probably worth checking which media is supported by the drive.
Also check the drives aren,t conflicting, on the same ide channel, sometimes swapping channels, ide primary/secondary can help, or swiitching Master/Slave/cable select jumpers on the drives Themselves.

My LG DVD writer GSA-H55N not detecting CDs and some DVDs


Some DVD/CD drivers have two lasers: one for DVD and the other for CD. Not sure if this is your case but looks like the laser for CD discs is gone. The only way to repair it to replace the pickup mechanism. Anyway, it's hard to diagnose your issue as it may be caused by drivers, dust, software that interferes with the CD/DVD drivers, etc.

My hp photosmart c5580 won't print the correct ink color on dvds


Unless a printer is specifically designed to PRINT on CDs or DVDS, that's the problem. Usually a program called "LightScribe" is used to print on CDs or DVDs right in your DVD/CD Drive. For printers, use a Self Adhesive DVD/CD PAPER Label(s) that you can buy in the store. Inserting DVDs or CDs through a printer can really mess them up and Damage the rollers inside!

DVD tray makes noise when it rotates


This noise can be casued by two things:

1) The tray is not completely in the loaded position and the "clamper" is rubbing. Replace the loading belt and the loading sequence will complete and the noise should stop.

2) The "CD table" that is part of the spindle motor assembly has slipped a bit. This will make the CD/DVD ride too low and strike the lower tray support. This will require that the table be "re-aligned" to the proper height which may not be possible on your model without special measurement equipment. The height is critical to proper operation of the unit.


Try replacing the load belt first and report your results.

Thanks,
Dan

Epson stylus r1800 problem with printing on cd/dvd


Try this :

Disconnect the printer from the computer.
Turn it off & make sure the CD/DVD tray is closed then turn it back on.

***

Here's generic instruction for you:

If you are receiving an error pertaining to the CD TRAY NOT BEING INSERTED CORRECTLY, please do the following:

Recommendations:
-Don't force the CD/DVD tray into the printer.
-Make sure your printer is powered on, and the output tray is in the upper position.
-Please ensure there is at least 3 inches of space behind the printer, or the CD tray may eject.

Included, are the correct CD/DVD loading instructions. Please follow the instructions below:

CD/DVD LOADING:
1. Ensure the printer is powered on. Remove any paper from the sheet feeder.
2. Push in the paper support extension on the printer, and close the paper support.
3. Push in the output tray extensions, but leave the tray open.
4. Lift the output tray. Place one hand on the top of the printer, and pull up on the output tray until it stops. Lay the tray down in the upper position.
5. Place the CD or DVD into the CD TRAY with the white (or printable) side facing up. Note: To print on small 8cm CDs, please place the small CD ring on the tray first, then place the CD inside the ring.
6. Slide the tray into the tray guides located in the output tray. Push in the guide until the arrow on the tray matches up to the arrow on the tray guide.
7. Press the PAPER button to load the CD/DVD into the printing position. The CD is correctly loaded when the printer's POWER button stops flashing.

General tips for CD and DVD printing:
-Burn data/video/images onto CDs or DVDs before attempting to print on them.
-Do not use thermal-printable or regular CDs or DVDs in the printer.
-Moisture or fingerprints on the printable surface of the CD may cause marks or smearing to appear after printing.
-All printable inkjet media is different. Some surfaces will absorb ink better than others. If output appears banded, faded, or streaky, print a Nozzle Check pattern to confirm that all colors of ink are printing completely. If the ink does not completely dry or smears after 24 hours curing time, you may need to use the Epson Print CD tools to adjust (lower) the print density.
-The only supported resolution for CD/DVD printing is 1440 dpi (aka "Photo")
-Borderless printing and printing on the "inner circle" (plastic around central hole) of CDs is not supported.
-Do not use the "print preview" feature provided by the Epson printer driver as it will only show the image on a blank field and does not offer a clear indicator of where the image will print.
-The Epson Print CD software works best with JPG images and may not import some TIFF images.
