Cleaning the inside of your printer
If you want to keep your printouts looking top notch you will need to regularly clean the inside of your printer. By cleaning the inside of your printer regularly you will not only improve it’s results but you will also keep it running smoothly for longer. Cleaning your printer involves more then just giving the outside a quick dust over every now and then!
1: Turn it off
Turn off the printer and make sure that all the parts have stopped functioning. Also, the power light must be off.
2: Clean the Inside
Wipe the outside of the printer and then open the printer cover. You can then see the printer ink cartridges by opening the front lid. Remove the dust accumulated in the area by using a clean dry cloth. There might be spots of ink that also need to be removed.
3: Avoid Circuitry
When you clean the inside you must avoid all the internal circuitry of the printer. Any physical contact with the circuits could end up permanently damaging the printer.
4 – Cleaning Test
You have to clean the printheads or nozzle by giving the ‘Clean’ command from the printer settings on your computer. You can do this by right clicking on the printer icon. Once you choose properties, you will see the maintenance and troubleshooting icon, select this and find your printer model then click select.
You should carry the above out about twice a month to keep your printer in tip top condition!
