Epson R220 keeps 'spitting' CD/DVD tray out when trying to print?

Hi, After some utterly brilliant help from FruitBat and Spuds last night with my old R285 printer, I thought Id dig out my R220 and try the same 'cure'. Unfortunately this did not work but id still like a bit of help if someone has any ideas please?

Basically, when i try to load a CD or DVD to print, the printer takes the tray in, thinks about it for a while, takes it all in, brings it back, the printer head looks as if it is about to print on the CD/DVD and then spits the tray out again. This happens over and over and it never actually prints.

Please could i have some ideas please?

Thank you.

Make sure there is enought clearance at the back to allow the tray to emerge fully, its a fairly common problem

If the above suggestion fails, then check that the cd/dvd is installed correctly or as a 'correct and compatible type of disk with appropriate writing capacity'. There are some unsuitable disks that will end up as coasters or tea mats. Are you using the same type of disks, without having previous problems?.

Another possible suggestion: Uninstall the printer from the computer, then reinstall as a new device, using the latest appropriate driver.

Thank you. There is plenty of room behind the printer. The DVDs are fine and work fine on the repaired R285. The software that works perfect on the R285 is the same software that I use on the R220?

Hi,

Any more ideas how to solve this problem? There is plenty of room at the back of the printer and the same software lets my R285 print perfectly?

What happens if you print a page first (just a few lines) and then try and print a CD?

Ah, exactly the same im afraid- it takes the tray in, feeds it out until the cd is being 'checked over' by the ink heads....and then spits it all out. So frustrating!
