Question about Microtek ScanMaker X6 Flatbed Scanner
Follow these steps to clean the scanner :
Open up your scanner's lid. It does not matter if the scanner is on or off for this basic, regular cleaning.
Wipe down the glass surface with a dry, lint-free microfiber cloth. This will remove any dust or other fine particles that have accumulated on the scanner. You should remove excess dust every day or two.
Scan a blank sheet of white paper into your computer and look for visible discoloration. A white sheet will provide a clean, blank slate to view the scanner's overall quality. If you notice any irregularities on the white sheet, you need to do more thorough, semi-regular cleaning.
Turn off the scanner and open up the lid.
Spray a small amount of "mild glass cleaner" on a soft, clean cloth as recommended by Scanner-Magic.com.
Wipe the scanner's glass to thoroughly clean the area. You should perform this semi-regular cleaning at least every two weeks or sooner if a white sheet of paper indicates discoloration.
Keep the scanner's lid open for a few minutes until all excess glass cleaner has dried.
