Question about Epson Stylus Photo R300 InkJet Printer
When I align the arrows, per the manual's instructions, the printer ALWAYS pulls the tray in slightly and then immediately pushes it out and the red error light comes on. As instructed, I close the tray and click the Eject button that the program presents me on my Windows XP Pro screen.
The only times (and these have been very precious few) I am successful in printing onto a CD occurs when I push the tray in more than I am supposed to do--as a result the arrows are not aligned; and then I have to exert a little, but steady pressure on the tray as the printer starts to pull it in. Sometimes it will then go ahead and complete the printing process.
But even then it does not properly align the image printed onto the CD. I have gone through the process in the printer's menu window to move the image, e.g., 4mm left. Whenever I succeed in getting it to print again, I see no realignment of the printed image.
I am extremely frustrated and I really want this printer to faithfully print properly aligned images onto my CDs without me having to hope and pray (and play with it) every time. I will be supremely grateful if you can help me make this thing work as it is supposed to do.
I have owned the printer a few years but this is my first time trying to print onto CDs. I have wasted tons of hours within the past week or so trying to achieve this. Please help!
1. make sure there is enough room to the rear of the printer to allow clearance for the try to pass out the back and back in.
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.
