System Maintenance Maintaining the Comdial DX-80 digital telephone system is a combination of customer database changes, facilities and apparatus moves, adds and changes. These requirements are accomplished by practicing the techniques, illustrations and step-by-step instructions listed in the previous sections of this manual. When properly installed, the Comdial DX-80 is relatively maintenance-free. From time to time the digital telephone instruments may become dirty or dusty and require cleaning. We suggest the use of a clean, dry cotton (or other soft, absorbent) cloth to wipe the instrument clean. The use of chemicals to clean the telephone plastics is NOT recommended since some chemicals can cause permanent damage to the telephone finish. If deep soiling conditions exist, many specialized telephone cleaning solutions will provide satisfactory results. When trying any cleaner for the first time, apply the cleaner to a small sample area on the underside of the instrument. If the expected results are achieved, proceed with cleaning the remainder of the telephone.
