Epson Stylus Photo R1800
I know that this is quite an old machine now but I dont really want to have to change, Normal printing is OK but with cds, it keeps saying there is a paper jam (no paper is used when printing cdS). I cannot see anything that would cause this problem i.e. something jammed in the path of the cd holder.

Reasons for Epson printer will not print from computer

Not properly connected to the electrical supply. Not set as a default printer. Low ink levels. Jammed paper.

Epson printers are compatible with various brands of inkjet printable CDs, DVDs and Blu-ray discs, including Memorex, Imation, Maxell, TDK, Verbatim, Mitsui, Ritek, Taiyo Yuden and others.
Head cleaning, ink charging, or ink drying is in progress

Check to see if the Pause light is flashing. If so, the printer is in the process of head cleaning, ink charging, or ink drying.

Go to “User Configuration” > “Administrative Templates” > “Windows Components” > “File Explorer“. Open the “Remove CD Burning Features” setting.
Right click on the Explorer key and select New -> “DWORD (32-bit) Value” and give it a name of NoCDBurning. Double click on it and enter a value of 1. restart your machine to make changes affect.
If your PC or the LCD screen on your printer is telling you that your ink cartridges are full but no ink is passing through to the paper, then it`s most likely that you are dealing with a clogged printhead. Blurry documents and images that appear faded are also signs that it`s time to remove the excess ink.
EPSON Print CD allows you to create CD and DVD labels. After you create the label, you can print it on 12-cm CDs and DVDs or 8-cm CDs and DVDs.
Turning the power ON/OFF while the print monitor screen is displayed may cause the printer driver to go off-line and make printing impossible. In this case, open the [Printers / Printers and Faxes / Devices and Printers] folder on the computer and check if your printer driver is shown as off-line.
Sometimes Print Spooler service can keep stopping because of Print Spooler files – too many, pending, or corrupt files. Deleting your print spooler files can clear pending print jobs, or the too many files or solve the corrupt files to resolve the problem.
To play a CD or DVD

Insert the disc you want to play into the drive. Typically, the disc will start playing automatically. If it doesn`t play, or if you want to play a disc that is already inserted, open Windows Media Player, and then, in the Player Library, select the disc name in the navigation pane.

Right-click the drive name and select Enable. You might have to restart the computer. The drive should work correctly after it is enabled. If the drive cannot be enabled, a required software service or driver is disabled or not functioning properly.
A stuck CD may be caused by a non-functioning or weakened motor that doesn`t have enough power to push the CD out of the player. The additional assistance from pliers or tweezers may create enough force to eject the CD.
Windows 10

Press Windows + E on the keyboard to open File Explorer. Right-click the optical drive and choose Eject from the pop-up menu.

If you have a memory card in the printer`s memory card slot, drag the memory card icon on your desktop to the trash. Then press the card eject button to eject the card. Insert the printer software CD-ROM in your drive. Then double-click the EPSON CD-ROM icon.
