Take out the paper trey if it has one or just look for paper or any debre that may be caught in the gears or blocking the paper path. Once you have removed anything thats in the way, unplug it and plug it back in to clear the error. You may have to remove some of the parts to get to wherever the jam is.

Hp desk jet 3512 making banging noise on start up and say cartridge jam


Probably a CARRIAGE jam, not likely a cartridge jam. Paper dust and stray ink can cause the end of carriage sensor(s) to malfunction. This will cause the carriage to crash into the stops. Sometimes cleaning the sensors can solve this. Other times the crash damages the carriage drive gears and basically requires the printer to be replaced. Repair is not really an option as these things are so inexpensive they are manufactured as throw-away items.

HP 7410 Poor printing, carriage jam message(fake), loud noise


Check the plastic strip that you'll see along the carriage track. Make sure it's clean. Take a soft cloth and dampen it. Run it up and down the strip and make sure it's clean. If there's any ink on it, it could cause carriage jams. The strip has tiny lines on it which tell the electronics where the carriage is. If the strip is dirty, you'll get jam messages and sometimes the carriage will slam against one end or the other.

Stalled printer cartridges


Sounds like an issue with the print carriage. When it's out of alignment and tries to print, it can make awful noises. HP.com has a web page that describes a number of troubleshooting steps when you have print carriage issues:

Carriage Jam Errors

There's also a related web page having to do with the noise coming from the printer:

Noisy Print Carriage

Hope this helps. Good luck.
