Certain maintenance instructions should be followed for the printer.
Cleanliness of the printer is absolutely essential.
a. Clean and dust all parts of the printer after it has been unpacked
and before it is put into use.
b. Be sure that no scratches are on the printing glass.
c. Wipe fingerprints from the printing glass with a lintfree cloth.
If they do not come off completely, remove the glass and wash with soapy
water. Use a clean, lintfree cloth. Dry with a clean towel and brush off
any lint with a camel's hair brush.
d. Examine the rubber platen surfaces to be sure that no foreign
particles are embedded in them. Remove any foreign particles carefully
without cutting the rubber.
e. Inspect all outside surfaces for cracks, chipped paint, broken or
cracked glass, bent or dented metal parts, rust, mildew, fungi, loose or
missing screws, and accumulations of moisture.
f. Tighten all loose screws and mountings.
g. Inspect all lamps and determine whether replacement is necessary.
h. Inspect all switches and controls for free movement, positive
action, and freedom from binding.
No lubrication of the equipment is required.
