    Are you running on a Microsoft windows os or macintosh?
    In any cases, make sure that the printer settings is correct.

What jackboy suggested is a good one however if ever you already checked on your printer then it should be the settings in your computer.

R300 error message close cd dvd guide the guide is closed but it will not print


Have you contacted Epson directly? I had a problem with the R200 some time ago and it was down to the tracking of the CD/DVD tray being out of alignment. Due to cost of the printers now it is not worth paying to get them fixed. Lookout for Epson deals where you can trade in your old R300 for a newer model. I still have my R200 still going strong and an RX858.I am sorry I have no firm advice to fix it direct.Mac#

CD/DVD guide error
When turning on the printer or printing on paper, the CD/DVD guide is open.
Close the CD/DVD guide.

Carriage error
The print head carriage is obstructed by jammed paper or other foreign material and cannot return to the home position.
Turn off the printer. Open the paper support and the printer cover then remove any paper or other obstructions from the paper path by hand. Then, turn the printer back on.

I keep getting the close the cd/dvd guide


When you flip the main cover up, and flip the CD/DVD tray down, look at the cartridge color guide label (the colored dots). See the LIGHT CYAN dot? Directly across from that dot around underneath the gray cover is supposed to be a little plastic fin. That fin pushes the sensor switch in the CD/DVD tray to let the printer know if it is open or closed. If it breaks off, then the printer always thinks the tray is open. If it's broken off, you will have to either stick a toothpick or something into the switch, or glue a new thin piece of plastic in its place.

It sounds that there is a possible hardware failure concerning CD/DVD guide cover. We can try this to resolved that issue:

1. Turn off the printer.
2. Close & open the CD/DVD guide cover for three times and make sure that the CD/DVD tray is not inserted.
3. Close CD/DVD guide, Turn the printer on. If printer is ready, press the maintenance button.
4. Try printing again.

If the above step wont resolved that issue your printer may need to send to a nearest Epson Authorized Service Center.

If you had to push the tray up hard, it could just be that the sensor is now mis-aligned and not detecting the draw is closed. You can check the voltages from the sensor to determine if the sensor is switching. Get yourself a service manual for the printer (aaprox £3.50/ $7.00) to help you get to the sensor and test it's funtion.
