Cleaning Inside the Printer (Bottom Plate Cleaning)

Remove stains from the inside of the printer. If the inside of the printer becomes dirty, printed paper may get dirty, so we recommend performing cleaning regularly.

You will need two sheets of A4 or Letter-sized plain paper.

  1. Make sure that the printer is powered on.

  2. Select Setup icon (Setup) on the HOME screen.

  3. Select Maintenance.

  4. Select Bottom plate cleaning.

    The confirmation screen will appear.

  5. Select Yes.

  6. Follow the message to remove any paper from the rear tray, then press the OK button.

  7. Load only one sheet of A4 or Letter-sized plain paper in the rear tray, then press the OK button.

  8. Fold the other sheet of A4 or Letter-sized plain paper in half widthwise, then unfold the paper, then press the OK button.

  9. Load this sheet of paper on the paper loaded in step 7 with the open side facing you.

    Load the folded sheet of paper with the open side facing you

  10. Set the paper thickness lever (A) to the right.

    Slide the paper thickness lever (A) to the right (shown in inset)

  11. Press the OK button.

    The paper cleans the inside of the printer and only the paper folded in step 9 is ejected.

    Check the folded parts of the ejected paper. If they are smudged with ink, perform a bottom plate cleaning again.

  12. When the completion message appears, select OK.

     When performing a bottom plate cleaning again, be sure to use a new piece of paper.

If the problem is not resolved after performing cleaning again, the protrusions inside the printer may be stained. Wipe off any ink from the protrusions using a cotton swab or the like.

 Be sure to turn off the power and unplug the power cord before cleaning the printer.
