Old HP All in one printer C 4180 page feed problem

Said printer works well, except that now, it tends to miss picking up roughly every other page. So I then have to manually - and gently - feed the page in. Sometimes I have 3 or 4 tries before succeeding.
I've tried wiping what I can reach through the access at the back, but it feels/sounds as if something on the right hand side is catching/ missing as the paper moves through.
Any ideas?

My BiL repairs computers etc - his advice would be buy a new printer, because any repair would probably cost more. Sounds like something has just worn out tbh.

Thanks NellG. I kind of expected that in this modern age, but its just irritating me that it will feed paper without help randomly half of the time!

Have you tried HP online support, it's free? We have two HPs in our home and I use the help facility quite often.
I hate to throw out electronic equipment and will persevere until, if possible, I get a solution.
I spent ages recently sorting my all in one and was delighted when I got it up and running again, as good as new. It could be the tiniest scrap of paper stuck to the rollers.
