Cleaning
Cleaning the Printer Case
Be sure to turn off the printer, and wipe the dirt off the printer case with a dry
cloth or a damp cloth.
CAUTION:
Never clean the product with alcohol, benzine, thinner, or other such solvents.
Doing so may damage or break the parts made of plastic and rubber.
Cleaning the Thermal Head
CAUTION:
After printing, the thermal head and the frame on its side (indicated in the
circle in illustration below) can be very hot. Be careful not to touch it and to let
it cool before you clean it. Do not damage the thermal head by touching it
with your fingers or any hard object.
Turn off the printer, open the roll paper cover, and clean the thermal elements of
the thermal head with a cotton swab moistened with an alcohol solvent (ethanol
or IPA).
Epson recommends cleaning the thermal head periodically (generally every
3 months) to maintain receipt print quality.
