Based on the lights you are already out of one or more ink cartridge or an ink cartridge is not being recognized/expended.
-You cannot print if any ink cartridge is expended.
-Leave the empty cartridge installed in the printer until you have obtained a replacement.
Once you start the ink cartridge replacement procedure, you must complete all the steps in one session.
1. Open the printer cover and press the INK REPLACEMENT button, located under the printer's cover. The print head moves to the center and the lights flash.
2. Lift up the ink cartridge clamp. The cartridge rises up from its holder.
3. Remove the cartridge and dispose of it carefully. If ink gets on your hands, wash them with soap and water. If ink gets in your eyes, flush them immediately with water.
4. Unpack the new ink cartridge and remove the yellow tape. You must remove the yellow tape from the top of the cartridge. Do not remove the clear seal underneath the cartridge. Do not touch the green circuit board on the back of the cartridge, or you may inhibit normal operation and printing.
5. Tilt the new cartridge toward you slightly as you insert it. Lower the cartridge so that the tabs rest on the hooks. Do not place the cartridge tabs under the hooks.
6. Press down firmly on the ink cartridge clamp until it snaps in place.
7. If you need to replace the other ink cartridge, repeat steps 2 through 6 before continuing with step 8.
8. Press the INK REPLACEMENT button and close the printer cover. The printer begins charging the ink delivery system.
9. Wait until ink charging is finished (the power light stops flashing and the red error light goes out).

You must surely have sorted this one out by now Doris! However, if you haven't, how to change print cartridges on a
DX7450 is very clearly explained in the user handbook (on the CD that
came with your printer). Insert the CD and select "Custom Install" then "Users Guide". Once its installed, double click the new Epson Icon on your screen and selct "Printing" then "Replacing Ink Cartridges". If you don't have a CD, download the User's Guide from the Epson website at http://www.epson.com - just choose your locale, then select Get Drivers and Support - Printers.

Even if you had the manual there would be no mention as to how to replace the waste ink pads! This is a common problem to all ink-jet printers. The best way to clean it is to just get the carriage out of the way by pulling the power while it is initializing and wipe the pad with a flat head screwdriver to remove the built-up black ink. The black ink is organic material & will build up as the color inks are dyes and will not build up!
Use warm water on a paper towel to clean up any messes made.

Windows uses a foreign language information file when installing a printer driver via USB. This then installs the associated foreign printer driver and utility files.
This can be corrected with a full uninstall of the printer driver. The standard uninstall will not remove the original foreign language files. Please follow the steps below to install the English version of the printer driver:
Switch off and disconnect the printer. Go to Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel, and remove EPSON PRINTER SOFTWARE (this may be named in a foreign language like 'EPSON DRUCKER SOFTWARE' - when you are at this stage and have selected to 'change/remove' this item, a window will appear titled 'EPSON Printer Utility' - above the icons of each of your EPSON printers will be a 'Printer Model' tab and 'Utility' tab (Note, if there is no Utility Tab then just continue). Please click on one of the printers so it is highlighted, then select 'Utility' - please tick every box listed in the 'Utility' section and select 'OK'. Answer positively to all questions and once the uninstall is complete, you will need to follow the same procedure to remove the other EPSON printer drivers by clicking on 'EPSON PRINTER SOFTWARE' again and 'CHANGE/REMOVE'.
Open up Windows Explorer or My Computer, and navigate to the drive (usually C) where windows is installed. Browse to the folders called windows/inf on XP, or winnt/inf on 2000. If you can not locate the INF folder please go into the START MENU and select RUN. If there is any text within this box please remove and type C:\windows\inf and press enter. Please be advised that 'C' represents the hard drive on your PC. If your hard drive is a different letter please amend as necessary.
Find the files labelled OEMxx.inf or OEMxx, where xx is a number from 00, 01, 02 etc upwards. You will need to double click on each INF file in turn, and if it says “SEIKO EPSON” or “EPSON” within the first few lines, then you need to close the file, and then delete it. Please also can you delete the corresponding PNF. Repeat this until all EPSON INF files are removed.
Note: You cannot open a PNF file.
Staying in Explorer or My Computer, stay within the windows folder (winnt folder on 2000) and navigate to system32/spool/drivers, and go into the folder named "w32x86". Delete any folders that begin with "epson", and then restart. Once rebooted, empty the recycle bin, and attempt reinstallation of printer, using the instructions below.
MAKE SURE YOUR PRINTER IS STILL SWITCHED OFF AND DISCONNECTED AT THIS POINT. Insert your driver CD. Double Left Click on My Computer and select your CD drive by right clicking on the CD icon and select open. When you first open/browse the CD-Rom then you should see various folders. Please browse to the Common Folder. Within here select the Printer Driver Folder then choose the WinVISTA/XP_2k folder. Run the Setup.exe file and complete the installation as normal making sure you only connect the printer when requested to do so.
Once this has completed installing, please remove the CD from the CD drive and reboot the PC. The foreign language tabs will now appear in English.

Why bother with expensive cartridges/refills. Get a CISS for your printer. It will save you TONS of MONEY, never change a cartridge again and it will pay for itself in a month.
