Question about Epson Stylus DX4850 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Epson DX8450 not printing

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?!

    Note: Resetting the printing system will remove all printers from the Printer list. You'll need to Add the printers you want again.

  • Restart your Mac.

  • Reinstall the Mac OS X 10.6.x upgrade.

  • From the Apple menu, select System Preferences and then click Print & Fax.

  • Turn on the printer. Your Mac will add the printer automatically. If your printer does not appear automatically try the following:

    • Update your version of Mac OS X 10.6.x. If there is a driver available for your printer in a later version of Mac OS X 10.6.x, your Mac will automatically add the printer when you turn the printer on.

    • Check if there is a Macintosh OS X 10.6.x driver available from the Drivers & Downloads page for your product. If it's available, download the driver and follow the on-screen installation instructions to install driver.

    I have a Mac Book. Recently installed an all-in-one epson sx515w. Whenever I try to print, a popup window says ''remaining ink level. Then, I get the message ''printer currently off line'' Can anyone...

    First of all, check to make sure your printer's USB cable is securely connected in your Macbook's USB port.

    Next, make sure your Epson SX515W has the latest drivers installed for your current version of Mac OS X
    Mac OS X Drivers for Epson SX515W

    If you already have the updated printer drivers for your Epson SX515W already installed,
    go into System Preferences> Print & Fax and see if the printer is displayed in the Printer window. If it is, click the "-" Minus button and remove your current printer.
    * Click the "+" Plus button and re-add that printer.
    Once you do, make to set it as the default printer.
    - Now attempt to print a test page from any document you have.

    See if this does the trick. If if does not, just let me know.

    Communication error

    Marky12, if the printer works fine on the vista system then you can eliminate a hardware fault. sounds like a driver or install issue. remove the printer completely from the mac (uninstall software, drivers and unplug) then go to, choose your countrey and head to the support and downloads section. 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
    Good luck
