HP LaserJet 1022, 1022n, 1022nw, and 1022n xi Printers - Cleaning the Printer

Clean the outside of the printer

Clean the outside of the printer with a clean, damp cloth when necessary.
  caution:
Do not use ammonia-based cleaners on or around the printer.
During the printing process, media, toner, and dust particles can accumulate inside the printer. Over time, this buildup can cause print quality problems, such as toner specks or smearing, and paper jams. To correct and prevent these types of problems, you can clean the print cartridge area and the printer media path.

Cleaning the print cartridge area

You do not need to clean the print cartridge area often. However, cleaning this area can improve the quality of your printed sheets.
  1. Turn the printer off.
  2. Unplug the power cord.

  3. Wait for the printer to cool.
  4. Open the print cartridge door, and remove the print cartridge.
      caution:
    To prevent damage, do not expose the print cartridge to light. Cover the print cartridge if necessary. Also, do not touch the black sponge transfer roller inside the printer. By doing so, you can damage the printer.

Cleaning the printer media path

If you are experiencing toner specks or dots on the printouts, you can use the HP LaserJet cleaning utility to remove excess media and toner particles that can accumulate on the fuser assembly and rollers. Cleaning the media path might extend the life of the printer.
note:
For best results use a sheet of transparency. If you do not have any transparencies, you can use copier-grade paper, 70 to 90 g/m2 (18 to 24 lb), with a smooth surface.
  1. Make sure that the printer is idle and the Ready light is on.
  2. Load the media in the input tray.
  3. Print a cleaning page. Access the printer properties (or printing preferences in Windows 2000 and XP).
note:
The cleaning process takes approximately three minutes. The cleaning page will stop periodically during the cleaning process. Do not turn the printer off until the cleaning process has finished. You might need to repeat the cleaning process several times to thoroughly clean the printer.
