    My Epson R340, ever since new had trouble accepting the cd tray. I took it in for repair and was told there was nothing wrong with it . This is the standard if the repair facility can not fix it.They just want their warranty money.

    After I got it back I still had to load it 2-3 times to get it accept a cd. I called them back and I was told it was me not the printer. I new then I was in for a nightmare until it completly broke .

    Now it is out of warranty and just keeps spitting the cd back out. It has always went two clicks backward and the tray just sat there . Then the error message would pop up tray loaded incorrectly frload and press start.

    Then it would usually work after one or two trys.

    I also have the same problem with trying to print on CD's/DVD Interestingly I also have a R280 with the exact same problem. I usually have to reposition the tray 2 or 3 times before it will feed correctly. Often the print head will traverse before the tray positions itself creating a noise and leaving residual ink on the front edge of the CD tray. If I don't immedaitely clean the front edge of the tray, the CD will have blotches of ink all over it.

    I am very frustrated and have not been able to find out why

Epson 1400 simply pulls blank paper through when I try to print

I've had the same problem. Drives ya nuts. Found that error said dvd/vcr release something or other on the epson print monitor. In any case, I found that if the front door isn't securely closed. (the front door you open to insert the dvd thingie, the paper will just feed or not feed at all. Once the door is closed on the front, the feed works fine again.

Mac OS 10.5 Leopard

I had the same problem with an Epson R340 printer and Epson Print CD software after installing Leopard.  Here's what I did.  Go to System Preferences.  Select Print & Fax.  Select the "+" box on the lower left part of the screen.  Select Epson Printer  -- USB and click "Add" and "continue" in the box that comes up (if it does). Now see if Epson Print CD will print to a CD.  If it does, great.  You can now actually go back to System Preferences and Print & Fax and delete the printer you just added by clicking on the "-" box and Epson Print CD will still work.  Now I found another problem with printing. The CD printing is now off center to the right and down, so in Epson Print CD program you have to click on print and from the print screen click on "Position Adjustment" in the bottom left corner.  I've found the perfect position is 3.5 mm up and 3.5 mm left to make everything print perfectly.  Good luck.

Cd tray not feeding

I had the same problem. My printer was sitting too far back in the cabinet and the cd tray was hitting the back wall when it was pulling it throuh. I moved the printer forward and the obstruction in the back was no longer an issue. It started printing all cd's just fine.
