Question about Epson Stylus Photo R220 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Epson Stylus R220 CD Print Smears after printing.

After printing on a CD the image is still wet after 24 hours. I thought it might be a bad batch of printable cd's, but the initial 4 cd's printed perfectly from the same batch.

It seems that the ink is not attaching to the cd's. Test Pages on regular paper works fine.

I tried cleaning the jets, replacing some cartridges, and doing an alignment test, also tried different brightness settings, ink is still smearing on the cd's

Any advice would be appreciated.

It has to be a bad batch or the wrong system.
Are you sure that the disks are labeled inkjet printable and not lightscribe?
Most printables are white in color and lightscribes are tannish.

I have feint lines across photos and have done head clean. Epson Stylus photo R220.


Well, here's your problem: that's a six year-old printer. I used to have it and and 2007 I replaced it with an Epson Stylus Photo RX595 AIO because like the R220, the RX595 has the ability to print directly onto inkjet printable CD's/DVD's. Your printheads/nozzles are shot and all the cleaning in the world will not fix them and it's certainly won't be cost effective to have repaired when you can get a current model for less than the repair price. Mine went after two years. Honestly, it's amazing that this printer lasted as long as it has. Six years has to be some kind of record.
Here are the current CD/DVD printing models from Epson.

Firstly make sure that the print is within the printable area of the disc. Any ink on the hub or outside edge will never dry. Check the inner/outer diameter setting in the print CD program.

Epson recommend that he discs are left to dry for 24 hours before use but in my experience they are dry in an hour or so although I am in Spain & it's 33C right now!!

What is the source of the images you are printing, perhaps lower the resolution of the image?

You can try changing the default printer settings "media type" from "CD/DVD" to "CD/DVD Premium Surface".

You can try playing with the brightness setting under the printer options advanced menu.

Lastly Epson advise trying different brands of disc until you find one that works!!

Let me know how it works out.

Best regards.

hello babu,
the problem is not with the printer, problem is with your general knowledge, to print on cd/dvd surface means you have to stick the sticker (cd label sticker) on the cd, then put the cd on the printer to print.
ok
bye bye
hope u will soon understand......
