Very useful to mention which Epson model you have.

Uninstall and reinstall all printer software.

Sounds very like a paper pick up problem, sometimes the solution can be as simple as lightly roughing up the rubber paper pick up wheel with sandpaper/emeryboard or the likes, to remove the slipery surface polish, in other cases it requires a replacement wheel

At a guess, there's a sensor in there that is either malfunctioning, or is being affected by perhaps a scrap of waste paper that's got into the mechanism. Can you open up the printer and have a thorough look?
