How should I clean the scanner?
To keep your product operating at its best, clean it periodically using the following procedure.

  1. Turn off the product.

  2. Unplug the AC adapter cord from the product.

  3. Clean the outer case with a cloth dampened with mild detergent and water.

  4. If the glass surface gets dirty, clean it with a soft dry cloth. If the glass surface is stained with grease or some other hard-to-remove materials, use a small amount of glass cleaner and a soft cloth to remove it. Wipe off all remaining liquid.

    Make sure that dust does not build up on the glass surface. Dust can cause spots and straight lines in your scanned images.

  5. Clean the document cover if it gets dirty.

  • Be careful not to spill liquid into the product mechanism or electronic components. This could permanently damage the mechanism and circuitry.

  • Do not spray lubricants into the product.

  • Never open the product case.
