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 HP toolbox. See
Using the hp toolbox
for instructions. Click the
tab, and click
Print Quality Tools. Select the cleaning page.
The cleaning process takes approximately 2 minutes. The cleaning page will stop periodically during
the cleaning process. Do not turn the printer off until the cleaning process has finished. You might
need to repeat the cleaning process several times to thoroughly clean the printer.
