How to clean the interior of the printer?

  1. Switch on the printer and open the cover.
  2. Remove the ribbon, and then close the cover.
  3. Press on both sides of the card feeder and detach it from the printer by lifting it up and out.
  4. Remove all remaining cards from the feeder.
  5. Use a new cleaning car, place it in the feeder, and set the feeder back into its slot.
  6. Press the control panel’s push button for one second.
  7. The cleaning process starts.
  8. As the card passes multiple times inside the printer, it cleans the card transport rollers, the cleaning rollers, and the print head as well.
  9. The used card is then ejected to the output hopper. Remove the cleaning card from the hopper and discard it, as it can only be used once.
  10. Place back the ribbon in the printer and the cards in the feeder.
  11. In case the cleaning cycle fails to start, open the cover and close it, then press again the push button.
