Noisy HP DeskJet 850C

My DeskJet 850C is printing ok, but often makes a harsh clattering noise as it prepares to print. A call to HP did provide some help...they told me how to clean a couple of parts with a damp cloth. This seems to help for a few prints but the problem soon returns. A computer shop service guy has quoted $A65.00 to give it a thorough clean. Can I do this myself? If so, how do I go about it and is cleaning likely to fix the problem? Thanks in advance.
