There are sensors in the paper path. Just blow air to ensure that there is no shreds of paper is blocking the sensor.

1st step. Remove the lid. It just pulls out at the hinge end by lifting straight up, horizontal if you like. Where the two lid posts insert in the scanner body you will find 2 screws, undo them, no need to remove at this point, too hard. Rememeber you left them in there though.
2nd step. Around the 4 buttons at the control end is a striped trim panel that is the full width of the scanner. Locate the join between this trim and the light grey underside of the scanner body and just left and right of the COPY & EMAIL buttons, Using your fingernails lift with some gentle force. This edge will pop up. Note, the trim panel has 3 location tabs that insert under the grey border edge around the glass. So pop the front edge first and pull towards yourself.
3rd step. Once this trim is removed you will note 4 little grey plugs equally spaced under this area. remove the plugs and you will find 4 screws. Unscrew them, no need to remove, remember point above.
4th step. Time for CAUTION. You will be able to lift the upper part of the scanner up in which the glass is mounted. ***There is a lead with little play connected to the 4 buttons PCB which is attached to the upper panel. To ensure you don't damage it accidently when cleaning the glass you can remove the 2 screws attaching it to the upper panel.
5th step. See if you can wipe it, with a VERY SOFT LINT FREE cloth, without putting you finger on it somewhere......................
6th step. reassembly is the same in reverse

I made contact with cannon and received this reply.
I was satisfied with the answer but the question still remained on how to remove the glass should i wish to do so.
Also after there answer... would there then be a problem if i did clean the reverse side.
Their answer was initialy this...
The foggy haze on the glass is actually an anti-glare treatment that has
been intentionally applied to the underside of the scanner glass. This
treatment lessens the glare from the lamp under the glass and provides
better image quality. This haze may not appear uniform because of the
shape of the scanner base and the components under the glass. However,
the anti-glare treatment has been uniformly applied and the haze is as
expected. The treatment should not affect the scan quality or output of

to check the page count install the driver and setup the scanner as a "scanner device" on your computer. Once you have done that , go to the "control panel" than "scanners and printers". Right-click on the device that says "Cannon DR-9080C" and select "properties". The device information will appear, than select the "counter" tab on the information box; the scan count will be listed.

There is a paper sensor just under the rolers in the lifting tray. Clean the area thoroughly with a damp cloth. Keep some sheets and try ]count only'. If it works then the sensor is okay, then you can try your scanning. If it is not sensing paper, check the sensor or connections to the sensor.
