  2. Remove the ribbon, and then close the cover.
  3. Press on both sides of the card feeder and detach it from the printer by lifting it up and out.
  4. Remove all remaining cards from the feeder.
  5. Use a new cleaning car, place it in the feeder, and set the feeder back into its slot.
  6. Press the control panel’s push button for one second.
  7. The cleaning process starts.
