Clean the Scanning Area

  • Be sure to turn OFF the power and disconnect the power cord before cleaning the machine.
  • Do not use tissue paper, paper towels, or similar materials for cleaning. Paper tissue powders or fine threads may remain inside the machine and cause problems such as a blocked Print Head and poor printing results. Use a soft cloth to avoid scratching the components.
  • Never use volatile liquids such as thinners, benzene, acetone, or any other chemical cleaner to clean the machine; these can damage the machine' s components.
