There are 3 screws, one's at the left side of the unit on the top corner (this is the one that's visible), the other 2 are under the silver cover, which houses the dial panel and the LCD, in order to remove the panel you have to use a flat head screw driver or something like that, and pop out the dial cover starting from the top right corner then the left side and eventually the bottom part, and then, using something that can fit through the square hole near the bottom of the dials under the cover which you've just removed, press the lock inside and simultaneously pull(slide) the panel towards the front of the unit, there then you will see the two other torx screws

Good Luck

I just removed the panel on mine, and after following the instructions above and breaking the tabs off the back of the key panel, I found that there is just one catch holding the thing on. Insert something long and flat at the bottom to depress the tab inside, and just slide the whole panel towards the front. Should come off nice and easy. Then just pop out the ribbon cable and the 2 screws that are revealed, along with the visible screw on the top, and you'll be able to lift the back part of the top off.

To get the front of the top off, there are 2 tabs holding on the front where the angled pieces meet. Insert something flat right in the middle and gently lift up on the front and that will release the first one, and then doing the same about a half inch from the left should release the second. If you have trouble spotting them, lifting up on the back about a half inch and looking under the glass towards the front will show you where they are.

Good luck.

So here is what I did....before you start you will need a security bit..I got a whole set for 4 bucks on sale at harbor freight. i used CR-VT 10 these are handy for all kinds of panels on electronics.... First I carefully popped off the cover around the key pad. I used a butter knife. Second i took off the panel underneath with the display and key pad..there are two tabs near the bottom. When it comes off you will see a ribbon cable attached, it easily comes out make sure you plug it back in the same way. Now you will find three security screws that need to be taken out, two under the keypad area and one in the opposite corner. slowly lift up toward the front and the other corner should pop out if you took out three screws. clean glass and put back together. Hope this helps everyone out.

I have a sharp ar-bc 260 have perfect black lines on copies only copy mode print mode is fine

Clean all your glass including the thin strip on the left side that handles scanning for the doc feeder. Run copies both off the glass and the doc feeder. If the line is still there then take off the glass, dust the inside scan cavity and dust your 3 mirrors with a new, lint free rag. Make sure your glass is completely clean before you put it back on.

2210 making noises right back side,originally said needs relignment,know it says scanner failure

Hello, Tim.

Often, the problem is that the scanner mirror needs to be cleaned.

If you are comfortable, disassemble and clean the scanner equipment. Sticks, glasses and mirrors, all should be accessible.

Some notes:
- Clean everything with glass cleaner
- Check where the white stripe is on the bottom of the glass plate
- Put a mark on the plastic, where this stripe is located, so you know the location of the stripe on the outside as well.
- Enlarge this mark, so it is on the main body as well
- Remove the glass again
- Align the scan head by hand, so that the bottom mirror is exactly on line with your mark
- Put everything back together
- Be careful, don't move the scan unit
- Turn it on when it's complete

If still a problem, the unit needs to be serviced.

Hope this helps.

HP OfficeJet J5780 Vertical Black Line Prints when copying or scaning only. Cleaned rollers and changed black ink cartrigde. Still problem.

Have you tried cleaning the document feeders Scan Glass? (small glass under doc feeder ~ 1" by 9") Most times there is dirt spot on this glass, causing a shadow on scans and copies.
Try copying from the large glass by lifting doc feeder / platen cover and manually placing original. If no line copying or scanning manually from large glass, then small scan glass is deffenitely the culprit. Hope this helps.

I need to scan a document and save as a word doc.

As long as you just 'scan' - using the scanner only then its driver will open the program that came with it. To save it to either a MS document imaging, Word, Powerpoint, Clip Organizer, another photo program, etc, these have to be opened and you do it from any of these.
Your web building program probbly have this function too.

HP scanner is not giving the true color and the image is fuzzy

You could try cleaning the glass and the scanner assembly for starters, especially if You had this printer a relatively long time or use it quite a lot.  Try the cleaning, then explore the driver ifthere is a problem - maybe reinstalling. If all this fails you may be having a failing scanner bulb.

HP Laserjet3030 steaks/lines in flatbed photo scans.

Are printed pages clean?
If so, clean the narrow strip of glass on the left side of the main scan glass.
If printed pages are dirty as well, then probably a defective toner cartridge -replace

*please rate me:)

Can't get scanner to work

Try oprning up Windows Photo Gallery, then File tab at top, then click on Import from Scanner or Camera.

The HP should come up as an option, so click on it.

I found that with upgrade to Vista, the actual SCAN button on the HP 2210 did not work -- but this back door through Photo Gallery lets me scan and import the scan as a jpg file.

Clean inside of printer glass

NOTE: The underneath side of the scanner glass cannot be cleaned on any product. This is unlikely to be necessary and should only be done by an authorized service provider.

This note is found on that website. For an authorized service provider near you: (in Canada)
(in USA)
