Epson Epson Expression XP-600

Black ink leaking when printing cd's

My actual model is an Epson XP-610, but cant find it in the model list.

Nearly everytime I print onto a cd I get a large black streak down the left hand side of the cd as though the black ink has 'leaked'. Sometimes cleaning the printheads solves the problem but I have to clean the heads everytime before I print onto a cd.(sometimes cleaning has to be performed 2 - 3 times which is a drain on the ink cartridge). When printing onto paper it's o.k., just faults when printing onto cd's.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Cheers, Dave.

I had the same problem printing discs on the XP-620. It turned out to be ink on the rollers. I'm not sure how ink got there, but cleaning the rollers seemed to fix the problem. I used disposable wipes with a small amount of alcohol and inserted the cd tray just enough to rotate the rollers. Not sure if alcohol is best to use but it worked.
