Epson R1800 paper feed problem

Got an Epson R1800 that has just developed a problem with the paper feed.

Using A4 in the top feed hopper. When you go to print it draws the paper in but instead of lining it up to print it just feeds it all the way through and out the front and issues a paper feed error.

Dont mind stripping it down if someone knows what the problem is.... Faulty mechanical sensor or failure of an electronic sensor and its location.
Probably just dirty pickup rollers which are not grabbing the paper correctly and therefore is missing the timing at the sensors.

Just clean the rollers with a product such as Platenclene and all should be well
