From the sounds of things, the issue may be a logic board issue if it is erroring out the same way each time. Many times a small scap piece of paper can get stuck inside the printer causing the paper error, but pressing the OK button would not clear the error which leads me to believe it is a logic board issue. May be time for a new printer.

C5180 Keeps repeating: Clear Paper Jam. Despite looking very carefully there appears to be no paper or jam. Powered off and retried a number of times without success


You need to open up the printer in order to truly look carefully. Sometimes it just needs a good cleaning internally, dusted, swiped with alcohol. Sensors can be very delicate.
