I am also experiencing the same thing with the Epson CX7400. I got it for 70 bucks at Comp USA close out today and was told it would be fine but it ain't jiving so far. I have scoured the net tonight to find a gimp print driver for it but to no avail.
Anyone got any ideas?
Thanks in advance,

I suspect you have 10.4.11 since 4.1 won't run on an Intel Mac.
This is the Leopard forum not Tiger.
In the Finder click on Go>Utilities and double click on printer setup utility.
Once the program loads click on Printer Setup Utility menu and choose to reset printing system.
Direct connect the printer via usb and turn it on.
Check the Epson web site and there is a printer driver dated Nov 19 posted for your machine.
Download and run the installer.
If you find an uninstall option when opening the installer uninstall first, the reinstall.
Then restart the computer.
Then test to see if the printer shows up when you go to print in the print dialogue.
same deal here. Got a Cx7400 along with a new Macbook Pro which is running Leopard.
I installed the latest driver from the Epson site (dated Nov 2007).
Under OSX, the printer always shows job as STOPPED and cannot be convinced to print.
This printer was hooked up to an HP notebook running XP and worked fine. Back on the Macbook Pro, I installed the Windows driver in Parallels and CAN print from Windows on the Macbook which tells me it is not a hardware problem. There are no error messages and the printer itself displays no error code. The print queue just fills up with jobs shown as stopped.
I've followed all of your instructions, and I still can't solve this problem. I've reset the Printer Setup Utility, downloaded what seems to be the appropriate driver (10.4.4-10.5), and restarted my computer. After downloading the file, I run the Vise X installer, which says "EPSON Stylus(TM) CX7300/CX7400/CX8300/CX8400 printer software." After installing the driver, shouldn't it show up in the list of drivers, under "EPSON"? Do I need to do anything more? This is getting incredibly frustrating.
For reference, I'm running OS 10.4.11 on a brand new MacBook.
I followed the directions that were given above with no luck. I tried about 3 or 4 times, following the directions to the T. In my frustration, I got up to go grab a beer and when I cam back, the computer had recognized the new driver and now it works perfectly. The moral of this story is that patience is a virtue. All the previous times, I would go to the drop down list to see if the printer had been added to the list. All the while the little progress wheel was spinning away and was looking for the driver and I was to impatient to let it do its job. So if you have had no luck at all, then give it about 5 minutes to search for the driver. BTW, I am on a 700MHz G4 Emac with 512 Mb memory and it works like new.
