Question about HP OfficeJet 6110 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

HP 6110 scanner glass is cloudy

The glass is cloudy with a streak, but it appears to be on the underside of the glass, and not on top the glass, as I open the cover. It's almost like windows when the seal leaks and they become foggy.

How do I clean the underside?

Thanks for your help!

    I have the same, glass is getting cloudy underneath, with a stripe as well.

    Wonder, how to get the glass out for cleaning ?

    By every scan there is a sqeaky sound, like something is touchting it.

Here is how, but it seems a lot of work.

- Remove all the torx-screws
- Remove the little glass on the left side
- Remove the Control Panel Cover (lifted it a little with a screwdriver and released two latches)
- Remove the Control Panel itself (another two latches&move to the left)
- The whole top of the 6110 is attached to the bottom with 4 latches. I remove that, turn it around and clean the glass.

Note: The cables between 6110-bottom and control panel/feeding unit are long enough to set those things aside.

Scanner window is cloudy on bottom. needs to be wiped clean


if you are a technical kind of guy you may want to download the service manual from MAISE MANUALS to see the correct proceedure to remove the platen glass without damaging your scanner!
attempting to do this without good instruction will most definatley be a bad day for your printer this job would likely take me about 3/4hr to complete as to remove the glass several covers need removing.

I have a vertical black line on the right side of my copies


Go to the HP website and read their solution. Here is what I found:
Issue When you copy, fax, or scan an original, the resulting output contains vertical bands, lines, or streaks in one or more colors. When you print the original, the output is normal. Figure 1: Sample output with vertical white or black linesc01892760.gif Figure 2: Sample output with vertical colored bands or linesc01892761.gif Solution one: Reset the All-in-One If there is static interference, or loose connections with the product, this can result in bands or lines in the copy, fax, or scan output. To resolve this issue, check the product connections and reset the product.
  1. Make sure the product is powered on, and then disconnect the power cord from the product.
  2. Disconnect the USB cable from the product, and then disconnect it from the computer.
  3. Reconnect the USB cable to the computer, and then reconnect it securely to the product.
  4. Disconnect the power cord from the wall outlet, and then reconnect it to the wall outlet.
  5. Reconnect the power cord to the product.
  6. Press the Power button (c01892763.gif ) to turn on the product.
  • If these steps resolved the issue , you do not need to continue troubleshooting.
  • If the issue persists , see the next solution.
Solution two: Clean the All-in-One and make a blank copy If the scanner glass or the white underside of the lid has fingerprints, smudges, lint, dust, or other debris, this can slow performance and affect copy and scan quality. To resolve this issue, clean the All-in-One. Before you begin, gather the following materials:
  • Several clean, soft, lint-free cloths
  • Mild glass cleaner
CAUTION: Use only glass cleaner to clean the scanner glass. Do not use cleaners that contain abrasives, acetone, benzene, or carbon tetrachloride. These substances can damage the product. Avoid isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) because it can leave streaks on the glass. Step one: Clean the scanner glass and lid
  1. Press the Power button (c01892763.gif ) to turn off the product, and disconnect the power cord from the product.
  2. Open the scanner lid. Figure 3: Open the scanner lidc01760887.gif NOTE: Your product might vary in appearance from the one shown in the figure, but the solution is the same.
  3. Spray a clean, soft, lint-free cloth with mild glass cleaner. CAUTION: Do not spray the glass cleaner directly on the glass to avoid damaging the scanner.
  4. Wipe the scanner glass and the white underside of the scanner lid with the dampened cloth. Figure 4: Scanner glassc01891674.gif Figure 5: Scanner lidc01891675.gif
  5. Dry the scanner glass thoroughly with a clean, dry cloth, or chamois to prevent spotting, and then dry the white underside of the scanner lid. NOTE: Do not use paper-based wipes or tissues that can leave fiber residue.
  6. Close the scanner lid.
  7. Reconnect the power cord to the product, and press the Power button (c01892763.gif ) to turn on the product.
Step two: Make a blank copy
  1. Remove any originals from the scanner glass.
  2. Load plain white paper in the input tray.
  3. Press Start Copy Black to make a blank copy.
If the copy is clean, there is no need to continue troubleshooting. If the copy has vertical bands, lines, or streaks, there might be dust inside the product, poor internal connections, or the product might be damaged. See the next solution. Solution three: Service the All-in-One If you have completed all the steps listed above and are still experiencing a problem, service the product. Causes
  • Static interference
  • Loose USB cable or power cord connection
  • Fingerprints, smudges, lint, or dust on the scanner glass
  • Dirt or debris on the scanner lid
  • Scratched or damaged scanner glass
  • Poor internal connections
  • Dirt or debris inside the product
  • Damaged or faulty scanner bulb or parts

My HP3030 scanner glass is dusty on the underside


Yes you can. Just be careful not to force any movement of the scanner lamp. Be gentle. Otherwise you have nothing to fear.

Hp office jet 6110 all in one


THE Office Jet 6110xi has the problem is the scanner carriage having a problem when it looses power. The carriage does not "see" the signal it needs to indicate to the scanner carriage has reached the end of the scan deck -- I open the scanner top (remove screws, lift ONLY several inches leaving the front "clips" or "clamps" connected so the rear part of the top deck lifts up).

I have wiped the glass and the scanner carriage.

THE BEST THING THAT SEEMS TO WORK IS TO MAKE SURE THE THIN PLASTIC INSERT BETWEEN THE GLASS AND THE PLASTIC DECK --- WHICH IS NOT SEEM FROM THE TOP SCANNING DECK BUT ONLY FROM THE UNDERSIDE WHILE HOLDING UP THE DECK --- IS PROPERLY SEATED SO THE SCANNER CARRIAGE "SEES" IT.

ALSO HAVING WORKED IS SOME COMPRESSED AIR BLOWING IN THE SCANNER CARRIAGE AREA. I PRESUME SO DUST GETS IN THERE AND THE AIR REMOVES IT.

This happens almost every time the scanner/printer looses power, so I usually try to avoid unplugging it or shutting it off!!!

Finally, do not give up. This can be fixed. Sometimes it took 2 minutes, sometimes it took an hour of cleaning, wiping, blowing air into it.....
