    I used Windowlene the other day to clean up a printer with ink plastered all over it from a leaked cartridge. The ink cleaned away okay, but so did a couple of serial numbers printed on the case, so be careful. I've also just found Brasso (try the pre-impregnated wadding stuff) to be very useful for cleaning sticky gunk off plastic, you could give that a try.

    A configuration page should give you the serial number - that or if its a network printer then you should be able to get some sort of web interface which again should give you the serial number and other info.

    Copy and paste onto a label type document and print off onto a label and stick it back on - jobs a good un ( providing you dont get the labels stuck on the drum lol )

    Thanks. I'm not worried about the serial number - we buy second-hand printers off eBay for £50, if one goes wrong we throw it out and get a new one. Actually, that's where the problem started - an ink cartridge in an eBay printer had decided to leak all over the inside of the printer and needed cleaning up. I was just suitably impressed by Windowlene's ability to dissolve both leaked ink and factory-printed text. I'm tempted to see just what else it will dissolve...

    AF Foamclene is quite good a removing older 'security' marking if it's just paint/ink rather than chemical etching...

    Hi there. I notice you allow teachers to use dry wipe marker on your boards.
    We have had smartboard 680i's installed recently in rooms where there is no room for regular whiteboards.
    How have you found the dry wipe marker usage? Does it wipe off OK?
    Although our installers, sales rep and even Smart say that the surface is dry wipe compatible, I've heard horror stories.
