Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles. If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive. It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.
I'm not familiar with the Epson Stylus printers, but I'm going to hazard a guess. If the paper does not move at all, the paper pickup feed mechanism is at fault. One of two methods is used to pick up the sheet. Either the front lower portion of the tray is lifted up to force the top sheet into the feed roller, or the feed roller is connected to a drop-swivel to drop the feed roller onto the top sheet of paper. You'll need to look carefully at the feed mechanism to determine if a gear or clutch is failing. If the paper moves into the machine about 1/2 inch and then stops, either the first paper feed roller past the pickup roller may be at fault. Also check to see if the paper sensor between the paper pickup roller and the first feed roller is working properly.
Good day!! Try to Head Cleaning the printer, go to your printer
properties and then "Maintenance you should see the head cleaning.. and then try to print some test page see if there's a changes in quality of the print.
When you first start the printer, the print head is moved over a rubber blade to "wipe" the print head. Sometimes it will also carry out a head-cleaning cycle. The sheet-feeding roller is rotated to ensure it is in the correct position. So, it seems likely that the squeak comes from the paper feed mechanism. The problem is, you will have to remove the printer top cover to make a more detailed diagnosis. This is not simple without the right tools and knowledge. If you feel game to give it a try, you can obtain the Service Manual quite cheaply from the internet - see for example:
