For the most effective cleaning use an electric duster to remove dust, dirt, and debris introduced into the open image area to keep it running at peak efficiency.
This type of device delivers its payload of high volume air flow without propellant, up to 70 cubic feet per minute using an electric motor. Use a device with a removable dust filter on the bottom of the unit which pulls right out for easy cleaning.
1. Attach micro cleaning tool nozzle onto canister's discharge outlet.
2. Turn on electric motor to initiate flow of air.
3. Place nozzle over the open imaging area directing air flow precisely into the crevice moving in a deliberate systematic manner repeatedly back and forth for a minimum of 6 complete passes.
4. Pull the nozzle away from the open imaging area continuing to discharge air through nozzle and make wide sweeping passes over the entirety of the photograph scan path in opened scanner to remove any remaining dust, dirt, and debris.
Alternatively, use a micro vacuum for computer equipment to remove any dust and debris the inside of the scanner by using the suction method offered by this type of cleaning device.
A static whisk brush can also be used to gently clean the mirrors inside the open imaging area.
Note: NEVER use any dispensing system delivering its payload of compressed air using a propellant under pressure. Droplets of propellant are suspended with this type of system as very fine particles or droplets and will damage the scanning element.
NEVER use any liquid, or fluid soaked cleaning object in the open imaging area. Residual droplets of the cleaning liquid are suspended with this type of system as very fine particles or droplets and will damage the scanning element.
