Check the paper feed path and ensure there is nothing blocking the feed path; sometimes blowing compressed air through the scanner will help. Please make sure the scanner is powered off before using compressed air.

Sometimes, printers are finicky—there may be paper loaded, but if the printer can`t grab hold, it`s going to think it`s empty. Try removing the paper tray, re-aligning the paper, and sliding it back in. In other instances, there may be some paper jammed in the mechanism.
The paper-width guide is pressed against the paper stack too tightly. The paper tray is not completely inserted into the product. The paper settings in the print driver do not match the paper loaded in the paper tray. The rubber paper-feed rollers are dusty.

There are different methods of paper feeding. With dot matrix printers, paper is often feed through pins on a wheel that grab and slowly move paper through the printer. With inkjet and other page printers, paper is fed through the printer with rollers that grab and move the paper through the printer.
The Print Spooler is software built into the Windows operating system that temporarily stores print jobs in the computer`s memory until the printer is ready to print them. In some circumstances you may need to stop and/or restart the service.
Your Epson printer may have failed to recognize the new ink cartridge, or its ink level system has read it as empty.
