Re: CD-R tray problems

I had the same problem, canon said nothing wrong with printer, solution I found was to slightly lift the rear of the tray as it fed in, as it appeared to hit something on way in when fed by itself

Re: CD-R tray problems

Same as RickyOz. I think the tray become warped and triggers a sensor. Lift teh back of the tray to straighten it as it goes in.

Re: CD-R tray problems

I finally got the printer to work by manually pushing the disk into the printer just before the error message appears.

My Epson Artisan 730 Printer keeps ejecting its CD/DVD Print tray, saying that there is a cd there. There, of course isn't. Can anyone help me? I really need to print.

My husband adjusted the CD/DVD tray, then we selected the icon that looks like a wrench on the printer's message window, then "restore default settings" on it. Turned computer off then on again, and it FINALLY started working again :)

How do I print onto cd?

Please follow these steps:
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.
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.
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.
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.

Epson stylus r1800 problem with printing on cd/dvd

Try this :

Disconnect the printer from the computer.
Turn it off & make sure the CD/DVD tray is closed then turn it back on.


Here's generic instruction for you:

If you are receiving an error pertaining to the CD TRAY NOT BEING INSERTED CORRECTLY, please do the following:

-Don't force the CD/DVD tray into the printer.
-Make sure your printer is powered on, and the output tray is in the upper position.
-Please ensure there is at least 3 inches of space behind the printer, or the CD tray may eject.

Included, are the correct CD/DVD loading instructions. Please follow the instructions below:

1. Ensure the printer is powered on. Remove any paper from the sheet feeder.
2. Push in the paper support extension on the printer, and close the paper support.
3. Push in the output tray extensions, but leave the tray open.
4. Lift the output tray. Place one hand on the top of the printer, and pull up on the output tray until it stops. Lay the tray down in the upper position.
5. Place the CD or DVD into the CD TRAY with the white (or printable) side facing up. Note: To print on small 8cm CDs, please place the small CD ring on the tray first, then place the CD inside the ring.
6. Slide the tray into the tray guides located in the output tray. Push in the guide until the arrow on the tray matches up to the arrow on the tray guide.
7. Press the PAPER button to load the CD/DVD into the printing position. The CD is correctly loaded when the printer's POWER button stops flashing.

General tips for CD and DVD printing:
-Burn data/video/images onto CDs or DVDs before attempting to print on them.
-Do not use thermal-printable or regular CDs or DVDs in the printer.
-Moisture or fingerprints on the printable surface of the CD may cause marks or smearing to appear after printing.
-All printable inkjet media is different. Some surfaces will absorb ink better than others. If output appears banded, faded, or streaky, print a Nozzle Check pattern to confirm that all colors of ink are printing completely. If the ink does not completely dry or smears after 24 hours curing time, you may need to use the Epson Print CD tools to adjust (lower) the print density.
-The only supported resolution for CD/DVD printing is 1440 dpi (aka "Photo")
-Borderless printing and printing on the "inner circle" (plastic around central hole) of CDs is not supported.
-Do not use the "print preview" feature provided by the Epson printer driver as it will only show the image on a blank field and does not offer a clear indicator of where the image will print.
-The Epson Print CD software works best with JPG images and may not import some TIFF images.

Cd tray error Canon Pixma MP810

Sorry a little late only just read your problem.
The location is not the bottom tray feeder but the disk tray. In settings change your media type to "Printable Disk" the paper scource should automatically change to "Disk Tray" and hopefully every thing will work OK.

2. when initiating the processes and thing start to happen gentle pressure on the back of the try to help the start the ball rolling helps
3. Do examine the lead in strips at the front of the try to ensure they are no distorted.

And 4 a search og Google and EBay can reveal a revised design tray for a modest sum.

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.

Will not print cd covers

Describe what YOU call CD covers? There is an anomaly here. Are you simply printing onto a4 paper for jewel case inserts or do you mean actually printing onto the CD.

Printer cd problem Epson R220

Hey Nala1, Try a print job again, but this time try helping the tray into the printer with a little push. Be gentle and do not try to force it in. If the tray is taken in and works fine, you should try cleaning the rubber roller at the front of the machine that pull the tray in. If the tray feeds part way and the print head runs back and forth a couple of times before the tray is ejected again, try cleaning the white marks on the tray. Use something like windowlene (windex) and a piece of kitchen paper. Also, if you have the old style tray with the thin clear plastic strip on the leading edge, make sure it is straight and in good health.
