Maintain the printer body

Because the printer ejects ink onto the paper in a fine mist, ink smudges will eventually
appear on the printer case and adjacent surfaces. To remove smudges, stains, or dried
ink from the exterior of the printer, use a soft cloth moistened with water.
When cleaning the printer, keep these tips in mind:

Do not

clean the interior of the printer. Keep all fluids away from the interior.

Do not

use household cleaners or detergent. If a household cleaner or detergent

has been used on the printer, wipe the exterior surfaces with a soft cloth moistened
with water.

Do not

lubricate the support rod that the print cartridge cradle uses to slide back and

forth. Noise is normal when the cradle moves back and forth.
