Question about Canon PIXMA MP830 All-In-One InkJet Printer
The inside of the platen is dirty and needs cleaning. How do I open the scanner portion to clean the glass?
You mean the inside of the scanner glass? (The platten is a part of the print unit),
You'll have to remove the sides and read cover. Unplug the scanner wires and remove the scanner assembly. Separate the document feeder from the scanner bed. Open the covers of the scanner bed (usually there are screws holding it together). Remove the glass and clean it. Reverse the process to reassemble.
Be careful. Canon multipasses are built a little like a Chinese puzzle box. There are little snaps everywhere as well as screws. Watch out you don't force anything and cause the snaps to break.
