Hi Caranzodigi,
I am also using EPSON R-230 but I get excellent print quality on the CD & DVD's, It appears that you are not using the correct CD/DVD media for printing, You cant print on any CD/DVD it has to be a specific grade and normally its mentioned on the packing "PRINTABLE". On this type of CD/DVD you will never face this problem of wet ink & bad results. Infact the ink gets dry as soon as it gets printed. I hope this solves your problem

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.
bye bye
hope u will soon understand......

Hi all,

I bought an Epson R230. This is the first time i bought a printer in my life. The normal paper print quality is decent .. but yesterday i tried to print directly on my white surface DVD .. and the print quality is HORRIBLE epson r230 - frown.gif

Here is the DVD:

Now when i print on it the CD cover i made, the quality is really really bad. Morever, i printed on it last night (more than 12hrs before) and the ink is still wet.

Here is the print quality:

I checked the nozzle and the test came out fine.

Then i tried to print again (wasted my 2nd DVD frown.gif ) and the result was still same as above.

What is the problem? can anyone please help me?

Who else use r230 here? can anyone post the pictures of their cd print quality for me? please?

Do i have any problem within the printer? confused.gif

Before i format my pc i get a very good quality, but after i formatted my pc i get a horrible print quality.

Hoping to get all the answers.

Thanks in advance!

Remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and connect the Printer to be detected and installed. Check printer properties to see the ink levels.
Use head cleaning before a test is taken . It is possible that the head is not reacting to the need of the command , can be an issue with ink drying , can also be poor ink cartridge contacts

My Epson Stylus R230 has both red lights blinking alternately

Your printer has reach its maximum count of cleaning and printing. This need to be reset using epson adjustment program. But before resetting make sure that you have replace the waste pad inside your printer or it is much better to point outside the hose where the waste ink goes out.

Printing is really slow almost 10 mins to print i am using Vista and have had updated the driver for vista but still

Epson R230 print slow at PHOTO, very slow at BEST PHOTO, if you do not need photo quality prints try printng at TEXT AND IMAGE for faster printing and the quality is still good. Also try to lower the resolution of that you are about to print, high the resoluton images takes longer time to print. Hope this will help you, Good luck!
