Maintenance:
Cleaning the printer's cover
Inkjet printers print by spraying a fine mist of ink from the print head onto the
paper. In some situations, small amounts of ink from the printing process may be
deposited on the printer case and become visible over time. If this situation occurs, the
exterior of the printer can be cleaned with a soft cloth, moistened with water to remove
ink deposits, dust, smudges, and fingerprints. A mild detergent may be used if necessary
on the exterior. Do not use harsh household cleaners as they may damage the finish of the
printer case.
Cleaning the printer's interior components
All inkjet printers produce a small amount of ink residue that may build up inside
the printer's case. This is normal. There is no need to clean this residue. Alcohol or other
cleaners may damage the printer and should not be used. Cleaning the interior of the
printer should be limited to cleaning only the ink cartridges. Do not clean anything else
inside the printer. Keep all liquids away from the inside of the printer.
CAUTION: Do not clean or lubricate the carriage rod. Cleaning or lubricating the rod
may reduce its life. The ink present on the rod will not hinder the
operation of the product. The carriage rod is the shaft inside the printer on
which the print cartridges move back and forth.

Manual for MantraJet 1100 rev 1.03
Cleaning the ink cartridges
Clean the Inkjet print cartridges when lines or dots are missing from printed text
and graphics. The missing lines and dots will appear as white lines throughout the text
and graphics. This may be caused by the spray nozzles being clogged or by the cartridge
running out of ink. If the inkjet print cartridge is running out of ink, replace the cartridge.
If it is not low on ink, try one of the following solutions:
Using control panel:
• Click the Windows Start button in the bottom left corner of a task bar.
• Click the Settings.
• Click Control Panel.
• Double-click Printers And Faxes icon.
• Right-click on the MantraJet 1100 icon.
• Select Printing Preferences.
• Click the Utilities tab.
• Click the Clean button, then follow the on-screen instructions.
Using print dialog box:
• In the software application you are trying to print from, click File, then Print. The
Print dialog opens.
• Click the Properties button and select the Services tab.
• Click the Utilities tab.
• Click the Clean button, then follow the on-screen instructions.
