Cleaning the Printer

Cleaning the Printer 
To keep your printer operating at its best, you should clean it 
thoroughly several times a year.
Follow these steps to clean your printer:
1. Remove any paper loaded in the printer. Make sure the 
printer is turned off. 
2. Remove the paper guide. If a pull tractor or an optional 
cut-sheet feeder is installed, remove it.
3. Use a soft brush to carefully brush away all dust and dirt from 
the outer case and paper guide.
4. If the outer case or paper guide is still dirty or dusty, clean 
them with a soft, clean cloth dampened with a mild detergent 
dissolved in water. Keep the printer cover in place and lower 
it until it lies flat on the top of the printer to prevent water 
from getting inside the printer.
❏ Never use alcohols or thinners to clean the printer; these 
chemicals can damage the printer components as well as the 
❏ Be careful not to get water onto 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 lubricants can damage the printer mechanism. 
Contact an EPSON dealer if you think lubrication is needed.
