Usually the paper source is set to Auto in Printing Preferences so if you put paper in manual tray it will feed from manual tray and will override the tray 1 selection. If you specifically want to change it to a tray disabling tray 1 you can do so if you go into Control Panel, Printer and right click on the printer and select Printing Preferences and then on Paper menu change the paper source.
When you look into the tray with the flashlight, you say the top rollers are spinning, are they touching the paper? Pull open the tray and while you look from the back with the light, close the tray and see if the paper is being lifted to meet that top roller. Take out all the paper and watch it again. Make sure that the platform that the paper sits on in the tray is free to move up. Sounds like it is jammed. Also check that roller that isn't spinning. Try to GENTLY rotate it with your fingers. If it does rotate, replace the tray. If the paper in the tray doesn't lift, replace the tray.
if you remove paper tray you will see rubber feed rollers that pickup the paper, sometimes when they really dirty they wont feed the paper, you can try cleaning them with some windex or alcohol but do no try to rotate them as there is a clutch and it can break, after gently cleaning the rollers wait a few minutes to dry, and try printing again... if still having a problem it may be either the rollers are worn or some other mechanical problem.
