If you have carried out 4 to 5 head cleans, waited about 8 hours and done another 3 or head cleans doing nozzle checks after each clean (as recommended by the manual) and there is still no improvement then you will need a third party head cleaning solution such as this one:
Other makes & brands are available just google "inkjet head cleaning solution" Hope this helps.

Hi, this printer is "clever" in that you don't adjust the thickness setting it does it itself.
It does this based on the paper type you set in the printer properties, see the table below for the different types of paper it will accept & the setting you need to use.
For this paper Select this paper type setting Plain paper, sheets Epson Premium Ink Jet Plain Paper Epson Bright White Ink Jet Paper plain papers Epson Ultra Glossy Photo Paper Epson Ultra Glossy Epson Premium Glossy Photo Paper Epson Premium Glossy Epson Premium Semigloss Photo Paper Epson Premium Semigloss Epson Glossy Photo Paper Epson Glossy Epson Matte Paper - Heavyweight Epson Double-Sided Matte Paper Epson Matte Epson Photo Quality Ink Jet Cards Epson Photo Quality Ink Jet Epson Photo Stickers Epson Photo Stickers Envelopes Envelope
Hope this is of help.

Is media transparent? Epson paper sensor think that no paper. Put white stiker at top left and right of media (about 1 cm height and 2 cm width). It's for tricky sensor.

Nothing to adjust feed mechanics. If it's temporaly print, you must feeed paper 1 by 1, and when printer grab paper, push paper by hand. If it's routine print, you can adjust the pick up rubber at paper feedr mechanic. Add double tape ( 1 mm, soft) below top rubber. I have done it, and printer can grab/feed paper up to 350 grams.

Be sure you are using genuine epson ink. Epson printers are "smart" and will not allow generic ink to work properly. Even after you replace a generic with a genuine it may take several print outs and alignments to get it to print again.
