Introduction

The buttons located on the side panel of the printer help communicate with functions that need to be performed such as scanning, copying, printing photos and turning the device on and off. Sometimes these buttons get stuck and need to be cleaned or replaced.

Go to the left side of the printer and locate the control panel with the buttons on it. Take a plastic opening tool and stick it in the crack between the top of the panel and the body of the printer.
