This section presents information about how to care for and maintain the scanner. For the latest maintenance information, see www.hp.com/go/sj5000s4 or www.hp.com/go/sj7000s3.
Clean the product
Occasional cleaning of the scanner helps ensure high-quality scans. The amount of care necessary depends on several factors, including the amount of use and the environment. Perform routine cleaning as necessary.
Clean the scanning strips
To clean the scanning strip components, follow these steps:
  1. Press the Power button to turn off the scanner, and then disconnect the USB cable and power supply from the scanner.
  2. Pull forward on the latch to open the document feeder hatch.

  3. Clean the scanning strips with a soft, lint-free cloth that has been sprayed with a mild glass cleaner.

      caution:
    Use only glass cleaner to clean the scanning strips. Avoid cleaners that contain abrasives, acetone, benzene, and carbon tetrachloride, all of which can damage the scanning strips. Avoid isopropyl alcohol because it can leave streaks on the scanning strips.
    Do not spray the glass cleaner directly on the scanning strips.
  4. Dry the scanning strips with a dry, soft, lint-free cloth. Wipe the strips of gray, reflective material on each strip.
  5. Close the document feeder hatch, reconnect the USB cable and power supply to the scanner, and then press the Power button to turn on the scanner. The scanner is now ready to use.
Clean the paper path
If scanned images have streaks or scratches, use an HP paper path cleaning cloth to clean the paper path.
  note:
If you experience repeated document jams, clean the rollers.
To clean the paper path, follow these steps:
  1. Open the sealed HP paper path cleaning cloth container, starting at the notch. Take care not to tear the cleaning cloth.
  2. Remove the cleaning cloth and unfold it.
  3. Load the unfolded cloth into the input tray.

  4. Launch the HP Scanner Tools Utility, and then click the Maintenance tab.
  5. Feed the cloth through the scanner.
    Under Clean Paper Path, click Clean to feed the cloth through the scanner.
      caution:
    Wait two minutes for the components to dry before proceeding to the next step.
  6. Place up to five pages of printed paper in the scanner. Scan and view the results.
  7. If streaks still appear, repeat steps 3 through 6.
    The cleaning cloth can be cycled through the scanner up to five times within 30 minutes. After that, the cloth will dry out. If repeated cycling of the cleaning cloth does not remove the streaks from the scanned images, clean the rollers.
  8. Under Record Cleaning Paper Path, click Record Cleaning to log this cleaning activity and update the paper path cleaning history.

  • The HP Scanner Tools Utility indicates that cleaning is needed.
  • You experience repeated document jams.
  • The document feeder does not pull pages through the paper path.
  • The scanned images are elongated.
  • You frequently scan any of the following types of documents: coated paper, chemically treated documents such as carbonless paper, documents with a large amount of calcium carbonate, documents written with or written on with pencil, documents on which the toner has not fused.
To clean the rollers, follow these steps:
  1. Press the Power button to turn off the scanner, and then disconnect the USB cable and power supply from the scanner.
