Cleaning the Printer Exterior

Clean the printer regularly to maintain better printing quality and help prevent problems.

To ensure a comfortable working environment, clean the printer exterior about once a month.

  1. Turn printer off.

  2. Unplug the power cord from the outlet.


    • Always turn off the printer and unplug the power cord before cleaning or maintenance. Accidentally leaving the printer on poses a risk of injury if you touch moving parts inside the printer.

  3. Wipe away any residue and paper dust with damp cloth that you have wrung out completely and wipe dry with dry cloth.

    • Clean the printer exterior and the power cord plug.

    • Open top cover and output guide and clean parts that come in contact with paper (A, B).


    • Never use flammable solvents such as alcohol, benzene, or thinner. If these substances come into contact with electrical components inside the printer, there is a risk of fire or electrical shock.


    • If the output guide is dirty, it may soil the edge of the paper when the paper is cut. We recommend cleaning the output guide even if it does not appear dirty, because it may actually be covered with paper dust.
