Cleaning the ADF

Clean the ADF if you experience paper feed or scanned image quality problems, or you see a message on your computer telling you to clean it.
Caution:
Do not use a hard brush, alcohol, or paint thinner to clean the product or you may damage it. Do not use oil or other lubricants inside the product or let water get inside it. Do not open the product case. Do not press the surface of the scanner glass with any force and be careful not to scratch or damage the scanner glass. A damaged glass surface can decrease the scan quality.
