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:

Remove any paper loaded in the printer. Make sure the printer is turned off.

Remove the paper guide. If a pull tractor or an optional cut-sheet feeder is installed, remove it.

Use a soft brush to carefully brush away all dust and dirt from the outer case and paper guide.

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 case.
  • 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.
