If you need to service, fix or maintain your printer, keep the following tips in mind:
- Safety first
If you have to open the printer to remove a paper jam, refill a cartridge, or for any other reason, be sure to turn the power off first. Make sure your exposed hand doesn’t come in contact with any moving parts or hot fusers.
- Cleaning printer heads
At some point, you may notice that the images on your documents aren’t printing clearly and that there are thin white lines running across dark ink patches. This can indicate that the printer heads should be cleaned. To make sure you are doing this correctly, either contact your Xerox supplier or check the instructions in the manual. Some of the latest multi-function printers have self-cleaning options that you can activate with the click of a button.
