Remove the papers from the feed tray and look through the paper path for any obstructions.
Load the print papers and make sure they are correctly aligned on the feed tray.

How do i align head on printer

Hi Good day!! To Align read this

1. Raise the input tray, which you may fold over the top for compact storage. Lower the output tray at the bottom.

2. Slide the "paper-width guide" on the input tray to the left. This is the small, adjustable tab situated where you will place the stack of paper.

3. Load a small stack of paper into the input tray. Make sure short side is forward and the print side is up. For some paper, it makes no difference which side is up. Slide the stack down until it stops.

4. Slide the paper-width guide to the right, snug up against the stack of paper to ensure proper alignment.

Method 2:

1. click start
2. click printer and faxes
3. right click your installed printer and then properties
4. click printing preferences
5. click maintenance tab
there you should see alignment option click it

Can not print on to cds

I have R265 ... make sure the tray is set up in the corner and aligned properly. and check if perhaps there's a corner of the tray missing due to an accidental damage or something and the lases senses it's not there, which causes the printer to think it's not aligned right

Epson Stylus R320 - cant align the CD tray to print....keeps showing error.

This printer has a bad system tray. If doesn't work in regular way, try inserting the cd tray from the back using the back slot and see what happen (usually works)

Cd printing problem

Hi there
I had a similar problem and could'nt figure out why the cd tray was not going all the way through. Then I realised that I was being dense and had the printer too close to the wall and the tray could'nt feed "through" properly. Check your distances. Maybe you're not as dense as me but check just in case.

I have installed the HP Photosmart C7280 All-in-One and tried to print an article off the computer. I have paper loaded in the tray-I get a message Out of Paper. Load paper face down in Main Tray. What's...

I experienced the same problem on a HP Photosmart C7280 All-in-one printer. The problem was that the light-blue plastic piece, which covers half of the printing paper tray, had gotten out of alignment with the gray piece which covers the other half of the paper stack. Pull the blue plastic tray out and align it properly.

Epson stylus r200

(1) Check you have about 6 inches clearance at the back of the printer
(2) When loading the CD Tray, Align the arrows then when the printer starts to feed the tray, give the tray a gentle push towards the back of its direction of travel. That seems to help on my R200
