Default help with epson r300 printer

Hello,
I am new to this site but I did read some info re: the Epson R300 printer.
when printing on DVD's, the rollers that role over the top or the DVD surface get ink on them and as the rollers go over the disk surface leave ink smudges
on the disk surface. I have tried the head cleaning routine and physically cleaned the rollers with alcohol pads and it does not help. When I print on 24lb paper it prints perfect every time.

Appreciate any help,
Thanks

You best bet would be to ask about it in our Photo Inkjet Forum. So, I'll move this thread there now for you. Hopefully, one of our members familiar with that printer can offer you some advise.

BTW, Welcome to the forums!

I have never experienced with what you described on my Epson R230 and Epson 1410. I assume you use the CD/DVD in your print dialogue box when print CD/DVD.

Did you push the CD/DVD onto the tray?

I just had this problem happened to me. I pushed the DVD tray into the printer a bit too early (while the printer was just switched on).

I had some ugly ink marks on my DVD. I then cleaned the DVD tray, the bit pushed in the most with alcohol based cleaner, and a little bit on the roller. My problem solved after two DVD prints.

Just my two cents.
