To clean the glass
Dirty glass, from fingerprints, smudges, hair, and so on, slows down performance and affects
the accuracy of special features such as fit-to-page and copy.
If streaks or other defects appear only on copies produced using the automatic document
feeder (ADF), clean the scanner strip (step 3). It is not necessary to clean the scanner glass.

Do not use abrasives, acetone, benzene, ammonia, ethyl alcohol, or carbon tetrachloride on
any part of the device; these can damage the device. Do not place liquids directly on the
glass. They might seep under it and damage the device.
3. Clean the scanner strip by using a soft cloth or sponge that has been moistened with
nonabrasive glass cleaner.
4. To prevent spotting, dry the glass by using a chamois or cellulose sponge.
