Re: Accidently pulled our square shaped plug in back of...
Sounds like you are referring to the USB cable that connects the printer to the computer. Are you sure you reconnected it properly? If the printer does not power on you could also be talking about the power cable. Be sure all connections are properly connected and not damaged then restart the printer and computer.

Usually the printers have only one USB port. If you had broke it, then it can be replaced (if mainboard is NOT DAMAGED). USB port is very cheep but you will need tools and skills to replace it. There is only USB input port(from flash memory stick) in front of the printer
Going to need far more information.
Have you Installed this printer? software and drivers?
Is there any signs of life on the printer? Is the power lead ok?
Is the USB cable (or whatever type of cable you are using) plugged in and ok (try a replacement)
Get back if it still does not work
Majority of printers today use a 'square D' type USB cable. The 'square D' comes from the unique shape of the plug that goes into the printer. The other end of cable will be a typical rectangular slot and will work with any laptop or desktop with a USB port. You may have more than one USB port on either side and maybe even one on the back of laptop. Some printer manufacturers do not ship cable with printer. If you need to get one, retailers like Walmart and Radioshack typically carrie them. Take account the distance between printer and laptop so you can get the right length. As for windows 7, you can get drivers for Epson printers on the Epson website. Click the downloads link. Select your printer product and operating system. Driver downloads are free and do not require registration.
In pulling out the envelope, I guess I pulled the machine just enough to loosen the power plug at the back of the printer/scanner. It appeared to be plugged in, but wasn't, just enough to not make contact. Thus it baffled me why it wouldn't turn on, nor show any signs of life.--
