Question about Epson Perfection 2400 Photo Flatbed Scanner
Used my scanner for a about 2 weeks this past summer (August) Took it out to use again and found the glass was very clouded. Couldn't scan pictures or documents at any contrast or resolution to compensate for the fog. I wiped the glass surface (outside) with a vinegar, water and dishsoap solution but it didn't help. Looks like the cloudiness is from the inside of the glass. How do I fix this?
You have a damp room, you need to put a sachet in the scanner the ones you get with new shoes or electrical devices in the packaging. this will clear up the scanner also have one in the room you can buy tubs that remove water vapor from the room .

SOURCE: scanner glass clean
Cleaning the glass is rather simple. Take the 2 screws under the cover out. Now gently lift the top part of the scanner (some force may be needed). Then the scanner is in 2 parts and the glass can be cleaned inside and outside with a wet wipe glass cleaning pad. Dry the glass with a towel and inspect the glass with a lamp, that no cleanser remains are left. Now install the scanner in reverse order.

Do a Google search on how to disassemble it to clean the glass. Before you do this, scan something to see it if works. You don't want to waste hours of time only to discover that it's dead.
These older scanners are dirt cheap so don't waste too much time or money fixing old **** that's gonna fail soon anyway.
