Epson R230 won't take CD tray anymore...
Hi all. Epson R230, prints standard paper just fine, nozzle check says everything is great(no gaps), WAS printing CD's until yesterday, now it won't
I did some CD's yesterday, then turned the printer off as usual - everything went smoothly and as expected.
Today, I try to print a CD, and the printer flatly refuses to even take the tray in.
When you tell it to print a CD, the printer makes two short noises like it normally does JUST BEFORE IT GRABS THE TRAY, then refuses to take the tray, pops up with a message on the screen that the CD tray is misaligned(it isn't) and to realign and press the paper button, which is now lit up red(but not blinking - on all the time). It is important to note at this point, that the printer does not even try to suck the tray in, so it is NOT the common problem most Epson R series owners tend to have with the tray not going in without a gentle push to help it along...
No amount of resetting the tray or pushing of the paper button clears the problem.
If I shut the CD tray cover, the printer reinitalizes and you can still print paper, but open the cover and try the CD again, and you get exactly the same error as already described.
Anyone seen this problem?
I really need this fixed, and I am not willing to buy another printer, as it really is still working, there is obviously something wrong with a sensor somewhere. It looks like I will have to pull the printer to bits, but I would be very grateful if anyone else who may have had this problem, would chime in with their 2c please...
