You had a hard day at work. It’s time to go home and chill with your friends over a glass of beer. But the last important job of the day that you thought would be a slice of cake is slowly turning into the mystery of Sherlock Holmes. Your printer isn’t just able to print. Maybe it needs some cleaning.
Step-by-step guide on How to clean Lexmark printer rollers
If you’re trying to clean the Lexmark printer rollers, shielding gloves should be used to avoid being coated in ink. It helps not only to prevent the printer from being damaged by the oil on your skin.
Step 1: Turn the device off. Switch off the machine and disconnect the power supply. Make sure the machine doesn’t have electricity. Do not try to turn on the printer to clean it. This would affect the device.
Step 2: Open the printer. Push the release hatch that can be found on the left side of the printer. This will open the printer’s main door.
Step 3: Please remove the cartridge. Keep the handle of the toner cartridge with both hands. Pull up and out at an angle of 45 degrees until it is removed from the printer.
Step 4: Find the roller. Close halfway through the main door before you see a roller. As the roller moves with the door, you’re not going to be able to look at the rollers until you close the door halfway. Identify the mounting arms of the roller until you can see the roller.
Step 5: Please remove the roller. Press one of the mounting arms gently outside on both sides. This releases the rollers out of the arms. Once it’s loosened, take the printer out of the roller.
Step 6: Wash with warm water. Take the roller for cleaning under warm running water. Wipe the roller surface with a soft cloth. This clears the roller of any ink or dust particles. Dry the roller until it is scorched.
Step 7: Reinstall the roller. Replace the roller of the printer in its place. Reattach both of the mounting arms of the roller to hold it in place. Open the lid and replace the cartridge inside. When you have done this, you cleaned the printer roller successfully.
You now know how to clean Lexmark printer rollers.
