Have you tried a cleaning cycle? If not, try one. Now run a nozzle check using the status monitor (right click the little printer icon in the bottom right corner of the screen and select nozzle check). Is there any sign of ink on the paper. Try up to three cleaning cycles. If ink is now flowing, but not yet perfectly, don't carry out any more cleaning cycles. Just leave the printer for 24 hours (to allow any air in the print head to disperse). Then repeat the cleaning cycle/wait process. It may take a while to restore a perfect nozzle check print. If these actions produce no positive results, report back.

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
If it doesn't feed any paper at all (even regular sheets) and you already have tried loading just 1 sheet it still doesn't feed it...means that it is an issue with the hardware itself particularly the paper sensor. This is usally caused a paper jam and clearing out the jam in the incorrect manner. If your printer is still within the 1-year warranty from the date of purchase, I recommend that you contact Epson technical support for a replacement or service center referral in you area if beyond warranty period. They may also provide you with other options suitable for you needs
You probably have a sticky paper feed sensor or a small bit of paper stuck under or around the sensor. Unfortunately the sensor is really difficult to get too without pulling the machine apart, but can be done if you take your time. The sensor is visible looking into the machine just adjacent to the printhead when it is parked behind the metal support
and if u have any lines on the paper when you print, it is most likely paper fluff or a hair struck under the printhead. Put a small soft cloth on the paper feed platen and run the printhead over it gently. Turn the printer off and then open the cover. Turn the machine on and when the printhead moves off the cleaning station, pull the plug out (this won't hurt the machine). then place the piece of cloth on the platen and slide thge printhead over it. Don't force anything. There will be mild resistance but not much.
If this seems too much, then a service agent might be your best choice but expect to pay around $50-$60 for the job.
