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.

How do I remove the glass from my HP 3210 all-in-one printer? I need to clean the underside of the glass. Thanks


Remove the 2 #10 torx screws which are in front of the glass area. Remove the platen cover by lifting it straight up (after opening it) and pressing in on the two spots marked on the hinge. The platen cover can now be lifted out of its hinge slots. Unplug the wire which powers the platen cover light and set the cover aside. Now remove the three additional #10 torx screws along the rear of the machine. The whole top including the glass can now be lifter up and off the machine. Clean the glass with a good glass cleaner and a soft cloth or lens paper. Make sure there is no lint on the glass and reverse the order to reassemble it.

I have a ricoh 2232c. Do you know how I can clean


In order to clean the optics, you have to remove the two optic covers (one over the **** glass on the left and one on the rear side of the main platen glass). Each cover should have 2 or 3 screws.

Clean the **** glass and platen glass with alcohol and a lint-free rag (both sides) and blow compressed air onto the mirrors, lamp, and reflector. It's a good idea to turn off the copier before doing this.

When reassembling, clean the white strip on the underside of the **** glass cover as well.

How do i clean underside of platen glass Canon MP160


for mp160, flip the cover open, the one that you open to gain access to the ink cartridge. you will see two screws at the underside of the scanner base. unscrew both. gently pull down at the front control panel and pop up the front lip of the plastic that holds the platen glass. then, at the back of the printer, adjacent to the paper loading tray, just below the platen glass cover, you will see two clip like stuff. remove the tray by pulling it upwards vigorously but firmly. then, get a flat screw driver to pry these up to release the lock. then, facing the printer, gently pull the whole of the platen glass, together with its plastic frame, towards you. do this while gently rocking the platen glass up and down, or left and right. to return the platen glass, reverse the process.

Mf6530 always says platen glass dirty but I've even cleaned both sides


Found the solution at http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=SupportDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=239&modelid=13170&kbpage=yes , then enter "clean platen glass" in the search window, and select item #1 "ERROR LCD: PLATEN GLASS DIRTY, CLEAN PLATEN GLASS ". This gives step-by-step instructions on how to clean the area dealing with the platen glass.

White spots on scanned photos


There's probably nothing you can do for dust under the glass, but in the Advanced settings for your scanner, there is an option to turn on "Reduce Dust & Scratches", with three different 'strengths'. You may want to try this to see if it helps.

How to clean underside of platen?


The underside of the scanner glass can only be reached by a a canon service tech. The compartment is supposed to be sealed and dust-free, so if it has gotten dirty, you should send the unit back to Canon for servicing.
