Upgrade your Mac OS to 10.4 ($129US), download the latest printer software (free) from Epson and you will find these problems solved.

I installed a new printer: Epson Stylus SX445W. When installing, the program announced an error and closed down. Scanning and printing photos from the SD card work well, but I cannot print from my...

Any number of possible reasons why the drivers didn't install properly but that's basically what seems to have happened.
Try uninstalling the driver, downloading the latest version (for your operating system) from the Epson Support section of their website and then reinstalling.
Remember to have the printer turned off and the usb cable disconnected until prompted to do so.
Might also be worth disconnecting from the internet (for safety) and disabling any of your anti-virus or other software while you install the drivers as they can sometimes cause problems.
Obviously once you're done, re-enable anything you disabled and reconnect to the internet as normal.
With a little luck that should cure the problem.

Found this on the Web. If you find helpful, pls rate me.
Here is the link for all the discussions regarding this error.

Welcome to Apple Discussions

Go to: Apple > System Preferences > Print & Fax > Print and reselect your printer in the Default printer: box near the bottom of the panel. Then next in the same Print & Fax preference panel, select Open Print Queue: and Delete all the Jobs in the Status box and try printing something again.

have no idea exactly what that error means, but now I suspect that when you "Trashed the EPSON folder in HD\Library\Printers\Epson" you trashed an important part of the OS X and not the installed Epson software.

If you have a backup Time Machine, a backup clone or that file is still in the trash you need to restore it "HD/Library/Printers/Epson/InkjetPrinters2 or whatever" back to the correct location, run Repair Permissions and hope that fixes it. If not then backup all your files, because it seems like you may have to completely reinstall the OS X....

Good Luck.....

Epson CX3900 will copy and scan. but will not print from laptop

1st analysis: your os is infected by a virus, try re-install your os again in slow/normal formatting mode, but save your important files in other drive, to be scanned later by an updated anti-virus software.
2nd; try to open u'r laptop find the location of RAM card/s its a black(with memory chips attached) to it unplug it from its socket (if it has 2 RAM cards do it to both) them plug/insert it in again, static charge must have been build up on these devices that affects some OS component such as dll (direct link library programs). hope this tips help... ;-) good day
