Introduction

Make sure to clean the glass and lid backing to remove any dust.  This insures that copies and scans remain clean and clear.

Cleaning the Printer/Scanner/Copier

Step one: Exterior

Use a soft cloth or slightly moistened sponge to wipe dust, smudges, and stains off the case. The interior of the unit does not require cleaning. Keep fluids away from the control panel and the interior of the unit.

Make sure to NOT use alcohol to clean the exterior, this could potentially damage the unit.

Step two: Glass

  1. Press the “On” button to turn off the unit.
  2. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the unit.
  3. Raise the lid.
  4. Clean the glass with a soft cloth or sponge slightly moistened with a non-abrasive glass cleaner.
    Note: The manufacturer advises to NOT use any abrasives to clean the glass.  Also do NOT used chemicals like acetone (found in many cleaners and nail polish removers), benzene or carbon tetrachloride (used in industrial surface cleaning agents).  Using these liquids could result in the liquid getting under the glass and damaging the internal circuits or parts.
  5. Dry the glass with a chamois, microfiber or cellulose sponge to prevent spotting.
  6. Connect the power cord to the back of the unit.
  7. Press the On ( ) button to turn on the unit.

Step three: Clean the lid backing

  1. Press the On button to turn off the unit.
  2. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the unit.
  3. Raise the lid.
  4. Clean the white document backing with a soft cloth or sponge slightly moistened with a mild soap and warm water.  Do NOT scrub the backing, simply wipe and shake the backing lightly to dislodge any dust or debris.
  5. Dry the backing with a chamois, mircofiber or soft cloth.  This is important as paper-towels or more abrasive cloths might result in scratches.
  6. If further cleaning is needed, repeat the previous steps using isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol and then wipe the backing thoroughly with a damp cloth to remove any residual alcohol.  Use the alcohol carefully so as not to spill any on the device (as noted above, this should damage it).
  7. Connect the power cord to the back of the unit.
  8. Press the On button again to turn on the unit.

There you have it!  If you have any questions please leave a comment.
