The Hewlett-Packard LaserJet 1320 printer can print black-and-white documents and has a printing speed of up to 22 pages per minute. To maintain the printer's printing quality, you have to clean the printer occasionally. Cleaning the printer can also solve minor problems with your printer.


Step 1

Clean the external parts of the printer. Turn off the printer, disconnect the power cable from the power outlet and unplug the data cable connecting the printer to the computer. Dampen a clean cloth with water and use it to clean the printer surfaces. While cleaning, ensure that no water gets inside the printer.
