How often do you need to clean my product?

  • The printer needs only minimal cleaning. If you notice a decline in print quality or when you've replaced the developer cartridge, clean the inside of the printer as described in this section. You should also clean the printer cover every few months. Fine dust particles can collect inside the printer. Follow these steps to clean the inside of the printer and the paper feeder:
    1. Make sure the printer is turned off.
    2. Open the printer cover. Warning: Opening the printer cover exposes the fuser, which is marked "CAUTION Hot Surface Avoid Contact." Be careful not to touch the fuser. If the printer has been in use, the fuser may be very hot.
    3. Remove the developer cartridge and the photoconductor.
    4. Remove any dirt inside the printer with a clean, dry, lint-free cloth. Do not use compressed air. If you have paper feed problems, clean the paper feed rollers by opening the roller cover and wiping the rollers with a clean, dry, lint-free cloth.
