Clean the scanner glass

Dust or dirt on the scanner glass, scanner lid backing, or scanner frame can slow down performance,

degrade the quality of scans, and affect the accuracy of special features such as fitting copies to

a certain page size.
To clean the scanner glass
WARNING! Before cleaning the printer, turn the printer off by pressing (the Power button) and

unplug the power cord from the electrical socket.

Lift the scanner lid.


Clean the scanner glass and lid backing by using a soft, lint-free cloth that has been sprayed

with a mild glass cleaner.

CAUTION: Use only glass cleaner to clean the scanner glass. Avoid cleaners that contain

abrasives, acetone, benzene, and carbon tetrachloride, all of which can damage the scanner

glass. Avoid isopropyl alcohol because it can leave streaks on the scanner glass.
CAUTION: Do not spray the glass cleaner directly on the scanner glass. If too much glass

cleaner is applied, the cleaner could leak under the scanner glass and damage the scanner.


Close the scanner lid, and turn on the printer.
