Cleaning the Inside of the Machine (Bottom Plate Cleaning)
This section explains how to clean the inside of the machine. If the inside of the machine becomes dirty, printed paper may get dirty, so we recommend performing cleaning regularly.

2.Remove any paper from the Rear Tray.

3.Open the Paper Output Tray.
Put your finger in the center of the top of the Paper Output Tray and open it gently.

4.Open the Output Tray Extension.

5.Fold a single sheet of A4 or Letter-sized plain paper in half widthwise, then unfold the paper.

6.Load this and only this sheet of paper on the Rear Tray with the open side facing to the front.
(A) Load the paper after unfolding it.

7.Select Settings on the HOME screen, then press the OK button.
The Settings screen is displayed.

8.Select Maintenance, then press the OK button.
The Maintenance screen is displayed.

9.Select Bottom plate cleaning, then press the OK button.
The confirmation screen is displayed.

10.Select Yes, then press the OK button.
The paper cleans the inside of the machine as it feeds through the machine.
Check the folded part of the ejected paper. If it is smudged with ink, perform Bottom Plate Cleaning again.
If the problem is not resolved after performing cleaning again, the protrusions inside the machine may be stained. Clean them according to instructions.
  • When performing Bottom Plate Cleaning again, be sure to use a new piece of paper.
