Cleaning the Printer
The printer nozzles must always be kept clean. Wipe the printer face (nozzles) at least twice a day with a paper towel dipped in an acetone-based cleaner. We recommend Klean-Strip® Acetone (special purpose thinner, cleaner, and remover) that can be found at any hardware store in the paint department.
For caked ink, use a soft brush dipped in the acetone cleaner.
Do NOT use...
- No alcohol should ever be used.
- To prevent lint particles from damaging the print heads, do NOT use a rag or cloth.
- The cleaning solution used for flushing the valves is not recommended either. Acetone is more effective for dried ink.
