Maintaining the scanner

Periodically, certain tasks are required to maintain optimum print quality.

Cleaning the exterior of the scanner

1

Make sure the scanner is turned off and unplugged from the wall outlet.

CAUTION—SHOCK HAZARD: To avoid the risk of electric shock when cleaning the exterior of the scanner,

unplug the power cord from the wall outlet and disconnect all cables from the scanner before proceeding.

2

Remove paper from the standard exit bin.

3

Dampen a clean, lint-free cloth with water.

Warning—Potential Damage: Do not use household cleaners or detergents, as they may damage the finish of the

scanner.

4

Wipe only the exterior of the scanner, including the exit tray.

Warning—Potential Damage: Using a damp cloth to clean the interior may cause damage to your scanner.

5

Make sure the paper support and exit tray are dry before using the scanner.

Cleaning the scanner glass

Clean the scanner glass if you encounter print quality problems, such as streaks on copied or scanned images.

1

Slightly dampen a soft, lint-free cloth or paper towel with water.

2

Open the scanner cover.

Cleaning the ADF glass

1

Slightly dampen a soft, lint-free cloth or paper towel with water.
Notes:

You may also dampen a paper towel with ammonia-free, deionized glass cleaner.

The cleaning kit for the scanner glass could also be used for this task.

2

Open the ADF cover.

3

Wipe the upper and lower ADF glass until they are clean and dry.

4

Close the ADF cover.

Cleaning the ADF parts

Clean the ADF parts periodically to ensure the ADF feeds paper properly. Residue on the ADF parts may cause scan

quality issues and false paper jam messages.

Wipe the touch screen with the wet cloth first, and then with the dry cloth.

Warning—Potential Damage: Do not use liquids, household cleaners, or detergents, as they may damage the touch

screen.

Storing supplies

Choose a cool, clean storage area for the printer supplies. Store supplies right side up in their original packing until you

are ready to use them.
Do not expose supplies to:

Direct sunlight

Temperatures above 35°C (95°F)

High humidity above 80%

Note: The computer must be connected to the same network as the scanner.

1

Type the scanner IP address or host name in the address field of your Web browser.
If you do not know the IP address or host name of the scanner, then you can:

View the information on the scanner control panel home screen, or in the TCP/IP section under the

Networks/Ports menu.

Print a network setup page or menu settings page and locate the information in the TCP/IP section.

2

Click Device Status.
The Device Status page appears, displaying a summary of supply levels.

Ordering a maintenance kit

When 

80 Routine maintenance

 appears, order a maintenance kit. The maintenance kit contains all the items

necessary to replace the pick rollers, the charge roll, the transfer roller, and the fuser.

Notes:

Using certain types of paper may require more frequent replacement of the maintenance kit.

The charge roll, fuser, pick rollers, and transfer roller can also be individually ordered and replaced as necessary.

To check the fuser type (T1 or T2) installed in the printer, remove the print cartridge, and then view the label on

the fuser.

Securing the memory before moving the scanner

Statement of Volatility

Your scanner contains various types of memory that are capable of storing device and network settings, information

from embedded solutions, and user data. The following are the types of memory and the types of data they store:

Volatile memory—Your device utilizes standard Random Access Memory (RAM) to temporarily buffer user data

during simple print and copy jobs.

Non-volatile memory—Your device may utilize two forms of non-volatile memory: EEPROM and NAND (flash

memory). Both types are used to store the operating system, device settings, network information, scanner and

bookmark settings, and embedded solutions.

Hard disk memory—Some devices have a hard disk drive installed. The scanner hard disk is designed for

device-specific functionality and cannot be used for long term storage for data that is not print-related. The hard

disk does not provide the capability for users to extract information, create folders, create disk or network file

shares, or FTP information directly from a client device. The hard disk can retain buffered user data from complex

scan, print, copy, and fax jobs, as well as form data, and font data.

There are several circumstances where you may want to erase the contents of memory of devices installed in the

scanner. A partial list includes:

The scanner is being decommissioned.

The scanner hard drive is being replaced.

The scanner is being moved to a different department or location.

The scanner is being serviced by someone from outside your organization.

The scanner is being removed from your premises for service.

Disposing of a printer or scanner hard drive

Note: Not all printers or scanners have a hard disk installed.
In high-security environments, it may be necessary to take additional steps to ensure that confidential data stored on

the scanner hard disk cannot be accessed once the scanner—or its hard disk—is removed from your premises.

Degaussing—Flushes the hard drive with a magnetic field that erases stored data

Crushing—Physically compresses the hard disk to break component parts and render them unreadable

Milling—Physically shreds the hard disk into small metal bits

Note: The only way to guarantee that all data is completely erased is to physically destroy each memory device on

which data could have been stored.

Erasing volatile memory

The volatile memory (RAM) installed in your scanner requires a power source to retain information. To erase the

buffered data, simply power down the device.

Erasing non-volatile memory

Individual settings, device and network settings, security settings, and embedded solutions—Erase information

and settings by selecting Wipe All Settings in the Configuration menu.

Fax data—Erase fax settings and data by selecting Wipe All Settings in the Configuration menu.

bar appears.
The scanner performs a power-on sequence, and then the Configuration menu appears. When the scanner is fully

powered up, the touch screen displays a list of functions, instead of the standard home screen icons.

3

Touch Wipe All Settings.
The scanner will reboot several times during this process.

Note: Wipe All Settings securely removes device settings, solutions, jobs, faxes, and passwords in the scanner.

3

Touch Wipe Disk, and then touch one of the following:

Wipe disk (fast)—This lets you overwrite the disk with all zeroes in a single pass.

Wipe disk (secure)—This lets you overwrite the disk with random bit patterns several times, followed by a

verification pass. A secure overwrite is compliant with the DoD 5220.22-M standard for securely erasing data

from a hard disk. Highly confidential information should be wiped using this method.

4

Touch Yes to proceed with disk wiping. A status bar will indicate the progress of the disk wiping task.

Note: Disk wiping can take from several minutes to more than an hour, during which the scanner will be unavailable

for other user tasks.

5

Touch Back > Exit Config Menu.

The scanner will power-on reset, and then return to normal operating mode.

Moving the scanner

Before moving the scanner

CAUTION—POTENTIAL INJURY: Before moving the scanner, follow these guidelines to avoid personal injury or

scanner damage:

Turn off the scanner using the power switch, and then unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.

Warning—Potential Damage: Damage to the scanner caused by improper moving is not covered by the scanner

warranty.

Moving the scanner to another location

Warning—Potential Damage: Damage to the scanner caused by improper moving is not covered by the scanner

warranty.
