Question about Epson 4880 Stylus Pro InkJet Printer

This sounds like a gear problem. There is a large plastic gear that drives a couple smaller gears to feed the paper, as it prints. The printer will have to be disassembled and the gear inspected for damage- it sounds like a tooth or two are bad, which would explain the problem occuring later in the paper feed.
You can take it into a Computer repair shop to see what they think, but I would contact Epson just to see if they can offer you a better solution.
Even if you discovered a bad gear yourself, the part can be hard to order, and you often have to go through an authorized dealer, just to get a part.
Often it's better to just get a new printer due to the cost of repair.

Good luck, and hope this helps.
