Remove the transparency unit from the scanner. Then carefully remove the six screws holding the hinge. Use WD 40 to lubricate hinge.

On the Canon scanner 7580, the lid is not closing all the way, which prevents scanning function. I believe the gray handle release that lifts the scanner and resets the scanner may be broken. How do you...

There grey handle does not reset the scanner. When you press, it pulls back the catch on both sides. If it is working properly, you may need to adjust the two small notches where the catch is held. You can slightly move it so that the scanner closes properly.

I have this same problem every time.....first unplug it.....I use a clean cloth that is soaked in Rubbing Alcohol (not nail polish remover, but pure rubbing alcohol). I basically open up the back, and clean each roller. There are two green tabs at the top of the back of the scanner. These need to be opened up (be careful, because the parts sort of fall out if you're not careful, and they are difficult to re-assemble).

Again, wipe everything down with the rubbing alcohol. Close up the upper tabs. Make sure you wipe down the glass slits on both the door (front-of-the-page scanning port) and on the unit itsel (back-of-the-page scanning port). Before you close up the back door, let it sit for about 5 minutes, allowing the rubbing alcohol to evaporate.

Filmy appearance and spots on the underneath of glass

Today I opened my V200 without much problems. First unscrew the two screws under the lid. Then turn the V200 upside down. Lift the base plate up, gently, beginning at the back (a little twisting is needed). Take care not to force anything. It took me 10 minutes. Fold everything open like a suitcase, then clean the glass inside...
To close again start with the front (sort of click system)

Resetting PaperPort after paper jam

I found the solution to this problem. Whenever the paper jammed in the feed tray, I was pulling the jammed paper out without opening the door of the feed tray. Apparently, PaperPort gets confused and does not know how to proceed. Now when I get a paper jam, I open the door of the feed tray, take out the paper, click on the paper jam error message in PaperPort, reset the paper in the feed tray, and then hit "scan." Works like a charm.

Slide holder is stuck in Dimage scanner

I solved the issue by opening the casing of the scanner after having unplugged it front the computer and it's power supply.

There are 3 rounded head screws that I unscrewed to do this.

1) The single screw at the back of the unit.
2) The two screws that are closest to the rear of the unit underneath the unit.

The tricky part is that the casing that makes up the sides, top and the back of the unit has to then be pulled back and a bit up to be released and the plastic hings of the casing will catch parts of the internal frame. Therefore great care and patience must be taken when pulling the case back and off of the rest of the frame of the unit.

With the casing removed, I slowly pushed the film holder towards the back of the unit until the front door of the casing could be fully opened manually, and then using one hand I kept the door open while slowly pushing the film holder towards the front of the unit with the other hand.

After that I put the casing back on, and the unit is running normally again, although I suspect that this jamming is a sign of wear and tear on this unit as it has been used a lot.


There is a mirror within the unit and I would advise as a precaution that no contact should be made with that mirror unless you are willing to risk the unit not being able to focus properly or showing smudges or scratch marks on the produces scans!

Transparency adaptor won't close

Remove the transparency adaptor from the scanner bed (unscrew the two smaller screws, then slide back and off) and then remove the glass (and plastic frame) of the transparency adapter (there are six screws).


By the hinge there is a small white plastic switch. Usually the transparency adaptor hits this when it's closed, letting your computer know that it is ready to scan. What I did, as bcvideo did, was take duct tape and firmly taped the switch to the side of the transparency adaptor, using several small strips of tape.


The scanner works well now. You may need/want to put something on top of the scanner if it does not fully close.
