Connecting epsom DX7450 printer to my toshiba satelite laptop
I have tried to connect the printer to my laptop via a USB. The laptop does not recognize the device. I connected the printer with the disc provided and have tried to re install the drivers, but still not working.
The printer will work OK on its own.

If you are using Windows you will get a chime sound when you plug & unplug a usb cable. I would try using a different USB port on the laptop and see what happens. Did the dog/cat/hamster chew on the cable maybe? I would also try another USB A-B cable.
You need a simple USB Printer Cable to connect the printer to USB Port of the Laptop, which is easily from any Computer Accessories store. Below is the picture of the cable. The normal USB plug (on the left) goes to the USB Post of the PC and the square one at the right should be connected to the printer.
you could have one of several problems here.
i,d suggest printing several test pages, and observe whether the red comes through after this.
if this does,nt work remove the cartridge, and replace ensuring the cartridge goes in with a firm click.
finally if you have the original software installed for the printer, try a head cleaning operation.
