Cleaning the Printer

To keep your printer operating at its best, clean it thoroughly several times a year as follows.

Unplug the printer's power cord.

Remove any paper from the sheet feeder.

Use a soft brush to carefully clean away all dust and dirt from the sheet feeder.

If the outer case or the inside of the sheet feeder is dirty, clean it with a soft, clean cloth dampened with mild detergent. Keep the printer cover closed to prevent water getting inside.

If the inside of the printer accidentally gets soiled with ink, wipe it off with a damp cloth.

Be careful not to touch the gears inside of the printer.

  • Be careful not to wipe the carriage shaft.
  • Never use alcohols or thinners to clean the printer; these chemicals can damage the components as well as the case.
  • Be careful not to get water on the printer mechanism or electronic components.
  • Do not use a hard or abrasive brush.
  • Do not spray the inside of the printer with lubricants; unsuitable oils can damage the mechanism. Contact your dealer or a qualified service person if lubrication is needed.
