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.
For best results use a sheet of transparency. If you do not have any transparencies, you can use copier
grade media (18 to 24 lb. or 70 to 90 g/m
) with a smooth surface.
Make sure that the printer is idle and the Ready light is on.
Load the media in the input tray.
Access the printer properties. See
Printer properties (driver)
for instructions. Click the
tab, and click
The cleaning process takes approximately 2 minutes.
