SOURCE: paper won't feed
My CX4800 developed the same problem. It was an excellent machine until then. I tried everything I could think of, and finally decided it must be the rather large feed in rollers at the right of the paper bin (one below and one above the paper) that had worn too smooth to pull the paper in. It works fine if I will give the sheet a "push" when it starts to go down - but who has time to stand there and push each piece in! It would really be nice if Epson would provide us with inexpensive replacement rollers and instructions for installing them. Guess they had rather we just buy a new printer - which I did, a CX7800, only to find that it will not take the heavy weight photo paper. :-(
Sorry I couldn't help more.

Okay.. 1st off I'm probably going to the jumped on for this... But.. I fix and/or make them work printers, computers and all sorts of electronic gear. For a living... Yes .. the manufacturer will tell you not to use alcohol to clean the rollers. but it does work. Windex (ammonia) will clean the heads at times. I also use Scotch brite pads to clean the pickup rollers. We get them in about 8x10 inch pads.
I will spay some alcohol on the end where the pick up roller is. Place the pad in normal paper tray. Most printers have a cam shaped one on the right, left or in the middle. That gets the paper moving. The pad is way to thick to actually move and will cause a jam indication on the printer. But what happens is the roller will slip on the pad and clean itself. Pretend you cleared the jam a couple of times and the printer will try to pick up the 'paper' and jam again. A couple of these and the pick up roller (cam shaped) will usually be good to go. The other option (the best) is to buy a new pickup roller for the printer. But cleaning will work for the short term. What happens on most printers is the roller gets very smooth from normal use and then won't pick up the paper for the rest of the trip through the printer. I have used a piece of fine grade sand paper, but you have to hold it so it won't go through the printer and it makes a gritty mess... Once I orderd a 'printer cleaner' from HP and all it was, was a couple of pieces of scotch brite glued to a fancy holder to match the spacing of the rollers. That's when I started using sheets of the stuff. Just pretend they are a piece of printer paper. In the worst case I have used belt dressing and then alcohol to clean most of it off. Alcohol has a tendency to soften the rubber on the pickup roller. That's why the company says don't use it. But you can by rubber rejuvenator that is mainly alcohol.. Go figure.........

Did you check the thickness? My printer won't feed paper that's to think or thick properly it sould say in the manual what thickness of paper you should use.
