General Maintenance

If you need to clean the computer by doing more than wiping it down with a clean
cloth, follow these instructions:


Turn off your computer and display, if a display is connected.


Disconnect the computer power cable from the electrical outlet or power strip. If your
display is connected to an outlet, disconnect it as well.


Disconnect the display’s cables from the computer.


Wipe the computer case surfaces lightly with a clean, soft cloth dampened with water.


Don’t use alcohol, aerosol sprays, solvents, or abrasives that might damage

the finish on the case.

Protecting Your Optical Drive

To keep your optical drive working properly:


Position your computer so that the drive tray doesn’t bump into anything when
it opens.


Close the drive when you’re not using it.


Do not put anything on the drive tray when it is open.


Do not touch the optical drive lens with your fingers. Do not wipe the lens with a
paper towel or other abrasive surface. If you need to clean the lens, see an Apple
Authorized Service Provider for a lens cleaner.


Keep your computer away from any source of moisture.

Laser Information for Optical Disc Drive

For your safety, have the optical drive serviced only by an Apple Authorized
Service Provider.


Making adjustments or performing procedures other than those specified

in your equipment’s manual may result in hazardous radiation exposure. The optical
disc drive in your computer contains a laser that is safe in normal use but that may be
harmful to your eyes if disassembled.
