Question about Epson Stylus Photo R300 InkJet Printer
I can print photos no problem, but when I try to print a CD/DVD it won't do it. The tray feeds in and then feeds straight out. The printer asks me to reload the tray and press the maintenance button, which I do, and it does the same again. There is nothing in the troubleshooting guide to cover this so any help would be appreciated.
The answer to this is to insert the cd tray then click to print then when its about to print put some light pressure with your fingers and you will see the tray will go in and it willl print just fine does it with mine all the time so thats what i do to rememedy the problem...good luck

I have the same printers. On the cd tray there is some small thin protrusions that are supposed to be thin enough to be easily caught by the rollers. Sometimes these do not go in between the rollers for the tray to continue in. Check and see if they are dammaged. A possible solution (but not recommended if you are not familiar with working plastic), is to try to make the tips a bit thinner so they will be caught by the rollers. The rollers are spring loaded so they will grip the material. This may or may not be your problem. It is what I have found quite frequently.

Solution: Bought a new feeder tray. Works a treat.

You need to push the tray in until it is held between the rollers.

Mine did the same, whilst they are very, very fussy the main problem is that you need a few inches of clear space at the rear of the printer when you print CD/DVD because the tray has to be able to pass out the back of the printer before being drawn back in.
