Maintaining the printer

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

Cleaning the exterior of the printer

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 printer.

5

Make sure all areas of the printer are dry before beginning a new print job.

Replacing the toner cartridge

trained personnel to lift it safely.

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

printer damage:

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

Disconnect all cords and cables from the printer before moving it.

Lift the printer off of the optional drawer and set it aside instead of trying to lift the drawer and printer at the same 

time.
