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?! 
(thanks)

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
Link:
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.

Regards.

Installing epson dx8450


Hi french22, when ever you get an error message like the one you have. Run windows update. After windows update opens choose the Custom button. It's windows that provides USB drivers. If your using Vista my suggestions may not help but you have nothing to loose.
Windows scans your notebook. (Which is a good thing).
Un-install the printer software you have listed from control panel.
Hook your printer up completely but leave the power button on the printer to off. Than during a restart enter your notebooks bios. I think pressing either the F12 or F10 key will load the bios for a notebook. Find plug and play OS & change it from Yes to No.
This keeps windows from assigning IRQ's to your hardware devices. Windows makes too many mistakes from time to time.
I looked everywhere for your Epson Stylus dx8450, (US) & could not find it. Had to go to Epson Europe. arrrrrrrg! I picked Vista for the driver page below.
http://esupport.epson-europe.com/ProductHome.aspx?lng=en-GB&data=lkuCfcvA9cwvvTQvZBj4Do8njW9o0vUIeGCYznQY84EU003D

If I picked wrong than go to this link & fill in the 3 windows.
http://esupport.epson-europe.com/SupportHome.aspx?lng=en-GB&data=0ccCGROWIYM58zV3pqc84YT0DcLI1RrpNUFXBv299cYU003D
Lastly if you could not find Epson software in the control panel Add/Remove programs than use windows search & find Epson & delete it. Also remove Epson Stylus dx8450 from the regestry.
Click strart, run & type in the run window regedit click ok.
Click Edit, find & type in Epson Stylus dx8450 & delete it. Close all opened windows & restart the notebook.
Load either your cdrom or download the driver from the net & try again to install the software. Out of info. God I hate Vista. You may end up talking with tech support for your notebook.
The problem is not you.

Have a great weekend!
Mike

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 epson.com, 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
