Cleaning the Printer

Cleaning the exterior of the printer

To keep your printer operating at its best, clean it thoroughly several times a year by using the following instructions.
Never use alcohol or thinner to clean the printer. These chemicals can damage the printer.
Use a soft, dry, clean cloth to clean the LCD screen. Do not use liquid or chemical cleaners on the LCD screen.
Use a soft, dry, clean the glass surface of the document table. If the glass surface is stained with grease or some other hard-to-remove material, use a small amount of glass cleaner and a soft cloth to remove it. Wipe off all remaining liquid.
Do not press the glass surface of the document table with any force.
Be careful not to scratch or damage the glass surface of the document table, and do not use a hard or abrasive brush to clean it. A damaged glass surface can decrease the scan quality.
Close the paper support and the feeder guard after you use the printer to protect the printer from dust.
