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 the printer:

Remove any paper loaded in the printer, and turn off the printer.

Remove the paper guide. If 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 and the paper guide are still dirty or dusty, clean them with a soft, clean cloth dampened with mild detergent dissolved in water. Keep the printer cover and front cover closed to prevent water from getting inside the printer.

  • Never use alcohol or thinners to clean the printer; these chemicals can damage the printer 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 printer mechanism. Contact your Epson dealer if you think lubrication is needed.
