Cleaning the Printer
To keep your printer working at its best, you should clean it several times a year.
Follow these steps:
1. Turn off the printer, unplug the power cord, and disconnect the printer cable.
2. Remove all the paper from the sheet feeder.
3. Clean the exterior of the printer with a soft, damp cloth.
4. Clean ink out of the printer’s interior with a soft, damp cloth.
Don’t touch the gears inside the printer.
Never use alcohol or thinner for cleaning; they can damage
the printer components and case.
Don’t use a hard or abrasive brush.
Don’t get water on the printer components and don’t spray
lubricants or oils inside the printer.
Don’t use any cleaning sheets included with special media;
they may jam inside the printer.
