Cleaning an Inkjet Printer?

Most inkjets have a self-cleaning process you can access from your printer's control panel. If that process doesn't remedy the problem, try one of the following. Remember to check your manufacturer's documentation and the product documentation to be sure it is right for your printer.

1. Inkjet cleaning cartridges flush dirt and debris out of clogged printer nozzles, restoring the quality of your prints and prolonging the life of your print heads. However, take care that the cleaning fluid you use is approved for your brand and model of printer.

2. Before cleaning inside your inkjet, turn it off and unplug it. Let it cool down if necessary.

3. Dust, hair, and lint from inexpensive papers can gum up your printer’s rollers. A computer vacuum is usually a safe way to remove debris.

4. Roller cleaning sheets can help in cleaning print rollers. Again, check documentation before use.

Tip: Most manufacturers recommend against using compressed air since the propellant may add moisture to the inside of your printer.
