Proper maintenance of your copier will ensure that it continues to work like new. If you clean the laser printer heads, you can help to extend the lifespan of the printer, and you will keep it working at the optimal level. Before you start, put on the proper safety gear. Laser printer heads can release harmful particles, and you want to wear safety glasses, a ventilation mask and latex gloves to combat the problem. In addition, people standing near you should also wear protective gear.
In the next step, allow for the printer to cool down. When cleaning your printer, always unplug the machine before you start. Wait a minimum of an hour after you have unplugged your printer to guarantee that it has cooled down. After it has cooled, remove the toner cartridge and clean inside the machine. You will want to send time putting the cloth on the cartridge to dislodge particles that could be stuck on it. Also, look inside the machine, and if you notice that the toner leaked, clean it using a toner vacuum. Once you have cleaned the area, you can put everything back and close the printer.
