Cleaning the Printer

If the components and the case are dirty or dusty, turn off the printer and clean them using a soft, clean cloth that has been dampened with water. If you cannot remove the dirt, try adding a small amount of mild detergent to the damp cloth.

  • Be careful not to get water onto the printer mechanism or any electrical components. Otherwise, the printer could be damaged.

  • Never use alcohol or paint thinner to clean the components and the case. These chemicals can damage them.

  • Do not touch the parts shown in the following illustration. Doing so may cause a malfunction.
