I have a Photosmart C7180 All-In-One Printer and the Printer has been having some errors (unrelated and fixed), but now the printer ran out of paper so I canceled the print because I knew it would mess up the print (it was double-sided) and then Windows said the printer was out of paper and wouldn't let me print, but the printer doesn't have the error (I tried to print a piece of notebook paper from the Setup Menu and it's fine).
This is the first time it's happened, and I am not sure if the error is because of Windows or the printer. The computer has Windows 7 and has the HP drivers so the printer's page in Devices and Printers has the HP logo and everything.
I connected with a USB cable, WiFi and Bluetooth.

Also, if this will help;
The past errors were after I canceled the print and would continue and the printer would print weird symbols like fancy Fs and smilies faces instead of what I wanted.

This article should cover the issue you are experiencing with the out of paper error. This article should help with the strange symbols. Give the steps outlined a shot and let us know if it helps.
Best of Luck!
