I just recently bought an Epson DX8450. I have a Mac OS X, i installed it fine, with the right printer drivers but for some reason whenever I send anything to print, it just feed blank pages and doesn't print anything. It just feeds out the paper until it runs out and says I need to load more paper.
The copier works fine, its just when I print.
Any suggestions to what can be wrong or how it can be fixed?!

Get the latest drivers for mac/tiger and reinstall the printer (make sure you have restarted the mac in between uninstall and reinstall) and most important !!! dont plug in the usb cord until the driver install tells you to
