Cleaning Exterior Surfaces

Be sure to use a soft and dry cloth such as eyeglasses cleaning cloth and wipe off dirt on the surface gently. Smooth out wrinkles on the cloth if necessary before cleaning.


  • Before cleaning the printer, turn it off and unplug it.

    • The power cannot be turned off while the printer is sending or receiving a fax, or when unsent faxes are stored in the printer's memory. Make sure the printer has finished sending or receiving faxes before turning it off.
    • Remember that faxes cannot be sent or received while the printer is off.
    • Unplugging the printer will reset the date/time setting and erase all documents in the printer's memory. Send faxes, print documents, or save jobs to a memory card as needed before unplugging the printer.
  • To avoid scratching surfaces, do not clean with tissue paper, paper towels, or rough-textured cloth. Additionally, paper dust or fibers may remain in the printer and clog the print head or affect printing quality.
  • Never clean the printer with detergent or volatile chemicals such as thinner, benzine, or acetone, which may cause malfunction or damage surfaces.
  • When cleaning the touch screen, use a soft cloth such as an eyeglass cloth to wipe the surface. Do not press down too firmly. Never wipe the touch screen with cleaners containing organic solvents.
