I am trying to add a Epson deskjet to RHL Enterprise but I am having a hard time. It is connected via usb and Red Hat  says the printer is installed but it will not printer. Any help would be great. I think the model is a 750 if that helps.

Are you using the GUI console?
http://localhost:631

through the browser?

What version of Red Hat is it?

Check if cups is running
service cups status
if it is not
service cups start

Open your browser:

Enter the address

http://localhost:631

You need to find your printer in the add a printer option

When you open the web browser, you would find the following heading on the page

CUPS for Administrators
|
----------->Adding Printers and Classes
                           |
                           ---->  Printers ----------> Add Printer  (Try this first, if you don't get success, go to find new printer option)

Have you tried downloading a bug to fix the problem?

Red hat has a bug to fix a similar problem to yours..  here is the link:

So I went to:

CUPS for Administrators
|
----------->Adding Printers and Classes
                           |
                           ---->  Printers ----------> Add Printer  (Try this first, if you don't get success, go to find new printer option

and there is three printers all for the same printer and they say ready to print. However when I try a test page from CUPS it never prints. Note this is a USB printer. Should I delete all the printers and reinstall?

Well, you have to make one of those printers a default printer.  At least one of the printers has to be active and online.

Did you find your printer's exact make while adding it?  

Can you ping the printer's IP address from your server?

Is cups running?

service cups status

If it is not, you have to start it, or restart it anyway.
service cups restart

If it still doesn't work, I would like you to look at anther problem very similar to that of yours that I had solved a few months ago.
