The HP DeskJet 1100C Professional Series printer does not require any scheduled maintenance. Periodic cleaning, however, not only enhances the look of the printer but also maintains it in optimum condition. Cleaning may also make it easier to diagnose a problem.
Maintaining Print Cartridges
In order to maintain optimum print quality, the printer automatically performs the operations of spitting, wiping, and capping the print cartridge nozzles. These operations are not visible to the user and require no user intervention.
Although print cartridges require no routine maintenance, proper use and handling of them will help ensure optimum print quality and print cartridge life.
Maintaining the Printer
The exterior of the printer should be examined for smudges or dust. Clean the exterior with a soft cloth moistened with mild detergent and water.
caution:Clean the printer with water or water mixed with mild detergent only. Using other cleaners or alcohol may damage the printer.
