Epson Perfection 3490 PHOTO Flatbed Scanner - dirt under glass plate

I have a 2 year old Epson Perfection 3490 PHOTO Flatbed scanner which is usually switched on when my computer is on. Just above the place where the scanning head is parked there is a white deposit on the glass. It appears to be coming from the printed circuit board on the scanning head. My question is does anyone know how to dismantle the glass plate safely so that I can clean the inside surface?

I'd be grateful for any help.

Henry

Hi Dave!

Go to a good elecronic store and buy a power cord.
Juste be sure that you have the info about the cord you lost.
You will find that info here:

Just make sure that the voltage and the amphere is correct.
Any good elecrtonic store have replacement cords stored.

Good luck to you

SOURCE: How do I clean the inside of the glass on the Epson 3490 Scanner?

Disconnect and remove the lid. Remove the two screws on the back of the base. Then use a screwdriver or flat blade to slightly open the back seam. Beginning at the back, run a blade up inside the upper part of the side seam. You will need to release three catches on each side. Once the sides are loose, raise the back of the top, while pushing forward, and the two snap catches at the front will release. The top then lifts off and you can clean the glass. Reassemble in reverse order.

3490 photos wont feed out after scanning


The Epson 3490 is a flatbed scanner that has an optional business card/4x6 photo auto feeder. Do you have the optional feeder attached & plugged into the correct connecter on the back of the scanner? Also, make sure the Epson scanning software has been configured to use the auto feeder. http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/ProductQuickSpec.jsp?BV_UseBVCookie=yes&oid=48059604&category=

My epson 3490 photo scanner isn't working theres a red light on the front of the scanner which is flashing


If the start button light is flashing red, it is because of one of the following problems:

  • The scanner is not connected to your computer properly or your software is not fully installed.
  • The transportation lock is locked. Slide the lock to the unlock position.
After trying these solutions, unplug the scanner to turn it off, then plug it back in.

Epson 3490 Scanner not communicating properly with PC


The new PC was Vista and the CD that came with the scanner completed loading a driver without complaint. However, a new driver was needed for Vista. After downloading the new driver from Epson, uninstalling the old driver and installing the new driver, it worked.
