Are you using original HP ink? Otherwise it looks like the printer itself might have problems.

Incase you have put the inks in the wrong holes, it will be a printer fault.  It maybe a case that one of the inks aren't working, or the whole thing is busted.  Regardless, talk to customer support.

The header said "Epson printer test page" and it is printing to an HP?! Wrong driver?

Why are you not using the Test Print from Windows 7 or HP's Printer test?
