HP Z Series Workstations - Routine Care

General cleaning safety precautions
  • Never use solvents or flammable solutions to clean the workstation.
  • Never immerse any component in water or cleaning solutions; apply any liquids to a clean cloth and then use the cloth on the component.
  • Always unplug the workstation before cleaning the keyboard, mouse, or air vents.
  • Always disconnect the keyboard before cleaning it.
  • Wear safety glasses equipped with side shields when cleaning the keyboard.
Cleaning the workstation case
  • Follow the safety precautions presented (General cleaning safety precautions) at the beginning of this document before cleaning the workstation case.
  • To remove light stains or dirt, use plain water with a clean, lint-free cloth or swab.
  • For stronger stains, use a mild dish washing liquid diluted with water. Rinse well by wiping it with a cloth or swab dampened with clear water.
  • For stubborn stains, use isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol. No rinsing is required because the alcohol evaporates quickly and does not leave a residue.
  • After cleaning, always wipe the workstation with a clean, lint-free cloth.
  • Occasionally, clean the air vents on the workstation. Lint and other foreign matter can block the vents and limit the airflow.
Cleaning the keyboard
  caution:
Use safety glasses equipped with side shields before attempting to clean debris from under the keys.
  • Follow the safety precautions presented (General cleaning safety precautions) at the beginning of this document before cleaning the keyboard.
  • Visible debris underneath or between the keys can be removed by vacuuming or shaking.
  • Canned, pressurized air can be used to clean debris from under the keys. Use caution because too much air pressure can dislodge lubricants applied under the wide keys.
  • If you remove a key, use a specially designed key remover to prevent damage to the keys. This tool is available from many electronic supply outlets.
      caution:
    Never remove a wide key (like the space bar key) from the keyboard. If these keys are improperly removed or installed, the keyboard might not function properly.
  • Clean under a key with a swab moistened with isopropyl alcohol and squeezed out. Be careful not to wipe away lubricants necessary for proper key functions. Allow the parts to air dry before reassembly.
  • Use tweezers to remove any fibers or dirt in confined areas.
Cleaning the monitor
  • Follow the safety precautions presented (General cleaning safety precautions) at the beginning of this document before cleaning the monitor.
  • To clean the monitor, wipe the monitor screen with a towelette designed for cleaning monitors or a clean cloth moistened with water.
      caution:
    Do not use sprays or aerosols directly on the screen—the liquid might seep into the housing and damage a component.
    Never use solvents or flammable liquids on the monitor because display or housing damage may result.
Cleaning the mouse
  1. Follow the safety precautions presented (General cleaning safety precautions) at the beginning of this document before cleaning the mouse.
  2. Remove the mouse ball from the housing by removing the retaining plate.
  3. Clean the mouse ball.
  4. Pull out any debris from the ball socket, and wipe the ball with a clean, dry cloth.
  5. Reassemble the mouse.
