    I have a mimaki JFX200 printer. I have some dried ink buildup on the lenses for the UV lights. I was wondering if anyone out there has any idea on how to clean these, how to take them out for cleaning or even what they are made out of. Thank you!

    I searched everywhere and the only thing I found said to periodically remove dust and build up from the lamps. Two precautions you want to take into account are not to try to clean the lamps right after they are done being used as they can be hot and cause injury to you or to the machine. The other is to not scrub too hard. If you do you could make scratches on the surface that will mess up the way the light shines through. It doesn't say which cleaning solution to use so I don't want to recommend something that may cause issues although if it were me I would just use alcohol and a lint free swab.

    For what it's worth, that's what I was told to use on our Anapurna...

    A lint free cloth with F200 cleaning solution or alcohol is fine. This machine has LED lamps so there's no heat to worry about. If you getting ink build up frequently you might want to verify you head gap is not to big.
