Make sure that there is at least 3 inches of clearance behind the printer. sometimes the tray is ejected because it is bumping into an object which is obstructing it behind the printer. this solved the problem for me, i found the answer on Epsoms FAQ's

Clean the white parts on the caddy and also clean the entry/exit rollers (use windowlene and a sponge). If you still have problems see my previous posts about under head cleaning and just complete a quick clean.

This should get you going again.

Epson Stylus Photo R300 Inkjet Printer When I try to print on a cd/dvd I line up the arrows hit print but it keeps telling me to close the cd/dvd tray, there is no way it will print with this tray.

The cd/dvd tray door has a small opening on right edge. Inside there is a slide switch. Use a toothpick to see if it is stuck. Check where it closes to the main body. A thin strip protrudes out to mate and close the plastic actuator of the switch. The door may not be closing well enough the actuate the switch. Make sure it is fully closed and retry to print. Also, there will be a small click as you raist the door before it snaps into place. If not, check to see if there may be some debris causing it to not actuate properly.
Good luck,

Epson stylus photo R300 cd/dvd tray not set correctly

I had the same problem. Restarted the printer. Reinstalled the drivers. Scratched my head ... nothing! then I moved the printer away from the wall - problem solved! I can't say that this will work for you but if everything else is working, as it was and still is on mine then it's worth a try.
What I didn't realsie was that the cd tray comes out of the back of the printer when it's checking the alignment. I had inadvertantly pushed the printer back, too close to the wall. Moved it forward slightly and it's fixed.
Hope that solves it for everyone.

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)

Hi Chillyslade,

Try this..

Close the CD/DVD guide, then press the font28.gif maintenance button.
If the CD/DVD tray is inserted, remove the CD/DVD tray, then close the CD/DVD guide

Hope this works, kindly let me know by providing your valuable rating.

Yes I had a similar problem and in fact returned my printer for a replacement. You need clearance as the CD tray emerges some 2.5 to 3 inches behind the printer. If the tray hits an obstacle it is unable to correctly line up for printing and the trat is rejected
