How do I print onto cd?


Please follow these steps:
1.
Turn your printer on. Most power buttons are located on the top of the printer. Press and hold down the button until its LED light turns green.
2.
Choose the image or text you desire to print onto the CD. On your computer, open the image or text you desire to print. images should be opened by clicking on your computer's "Start" icon and selecting the "Pictures" tab folder within the Start menu. When the Pictures folder opens, click on the image you desire to print onto the CD to enlarge it. If you are planning to print text onto the CD, open the text in Microsoft Word or any other desktop publishing program you may have on your computer.
3.
Insert the CD into the printer. Press the "Eject" button that can be found on your CD printing enabled printer. A CD tray will open automatically. Place the CD into the tray print side up. Close the CD tray. The printer will begin working to detect the CD. Once the CD is detected, your printer's LED light will either flash green or another indication color.
4.
Print the image or text onto the CD. For image printing, click on the enlarged image's tab that will be on your computer's taskbar. You will see a horizontal row of action icons below the image. Click on the thumbnail image of a printer to print the image onto the disc. For text printing, simply click on the "File" action on the navigation menu in your desktop publishing document. Click "Print" within the "File" drop down menu. The image or text will be sent to the printer once you choose the "Print" action.
5 .
Remove the CD from the printing tray. The CD will be fed through the printer during the printing process. Once the process is complete, the CD will come through the bottom of the printing tray. Take the CD from the tray when it reaches the bottom.
The above mentioned steps must help you. In case of any difficulty please revert back.

The cd writer/dvd tray on my hp pavilion 533w will not open. When I press the button to open the green light comes on and I can hear a whirring sound but then the light goes out and tray doesn't open....


I understand you can't find that pin hole that's supposed to be there. but just to clarify it's supposed to be on the face of the cd/dvd, not the case. also, just trying to help, did you try opening it WHILE your pc was booting up? maybe try from windows explorer and right click on the drive from that window and try eject or open option.

The tray on my Arcam Alpha 6 CD player will not eject and refuses to budge. Neither the remote control nor the load button on the front of the unit will make it open.


It's either the gear on the tray loading mechanism or it's drive belt. The gear is made of a soft material and the teeth wear down on the hard tray rack. Get hold of Arcam and order TP21H replacement part and belt. The same happened to me and the gear had perished. In the meantime stick something onto the front of the tray that you can use to pull it open after you have pressed the 'load' key. Place your CD in the tray, press the 'load' key and push the tray closed manually. The player will work like this until you can replace the gear/belt.

I bought the cd changer with my unit & two cds are stuck in it. This happened the third time I used the unit.


Hello,

this is a mechanism problem. Also, maybe something might have hooked the cd tray and made it stuck.

What you have to do now is to open the player by unscrewing the cover, so that you can gain access to the mechanism inside the player.

After you must have opened the cover, plug the cd changer to light, power it on and use you hand to pull out the tray while you press open button.

Also make observations on the disc tray while you press the open button and check the disc tray and look for what is making it stuck and refuse to open. This is why you need use your hand to support the disc tray by pushing it open from the inside.

I wish you good luck.

DVD Door Won't Open


I have this problem with my DVD rom too. I don't know if we have the same ones or not. I took mine apart to try and diagnose the problem, and it turns out that there was this thing inside that wasn't dropping down all the way to allow the tray to slide out, it was staying locked in place.
I was unable to find a cure for this.
However, I found that when I press the button to open the DVD rom, when it fails to open, I give the top of mt computer a slap, and it un-locks the mechanism and the DVD tray slides out properly.
I hope this helps.
