    Default Cleaning Printer Rollers

    I have an HP 812C Inkjet printer. I have to clean the rollers periodically or it quits picking up the paper (routine for printers, I imagine). Anyway, a friend stopped by while I was cleaning them and told me I shouldn't use alcohol for this. It's what I've always used, and thought it was the way to do it. He didn't know what I SHOULD use....he just heard you shouldn't use alcohol. Anyway, I guess I'd better ask if I'm causing any long-term problems by using alcohol for this and if there's something else I should use.

    Thanks for any thoughts

    Thanks so much, Bear It seems my friend was right....the article in the link says not to use alcohol, but only distilled water on a clean soft cloth. Oh, well, live and learn I guess. Anyway, much appreciated!

    Best....Larry

    Since these are just pick up rollers, a little bit of some thing like Window Cleaner should do it also. However is the roller are "shiny" (Glazed) try a finger nail emery board to knock off a little of the glaze.
