    Not really it would require taking the whole scanner apart.

    Is the glass not removable?
     Have a new piece of glass cut, and replace it.

If the scratch is not to deep you can polish it out with lots of  elbow grease and cigarette ashes. Their are also products n the market to polish scratches out of glass. A really light rubbing compound like for 3M might work.

Hi
if you scan documents through ADF (auto document feeder), open the scanner lid and check / clean the thin strip of glass on left of the main scanner panel. Use windex or similar window cleaner.
good luck

Try scanning a few documents in full size mode (scannerrs maximum), If you observe a line in the same location in all images, you can conclude that there is either a scratch in the glass (due to stapler pins) or dirt stuck firmly. Try cleaning with Isopropyl alcohol. For absolute emergency, you can wet a cotton bud in after shave and clean the right spot, take care not to touch any other part other than the glass. If glass is scratched, you need to replace it.

What causes a line down the middle of copied pages


There is something on your scan glass. My guess is you are getting the line on your copies when you run the original through the document feeder. If you get lines through the document feeder but not on copies made off the glass then it is a dirty scan glass. There is a thin glass strip where the document feeder feeds the original. Usually something like white out that did not dry smears off an original and ends up on this thin strip of glass. Scratch it off with your finger nail and use some glass cleaner to resolve the problem. The scan glass is about 1/2 an inch to an inch wide and will be on the same side of the machine that the copier feeds the originals in on.

Do you use the automatic document feeder (ADF) when you photocopy and fax? Do you use the platen (lift the cover up) when you scan a document? If so, you probably have some dirt or foreign material in the ADF scanner area, which is a thin glass area to the left of the glass platen. Clean this area with a damp cloth and dry it before trying again. There is a plastic strip covering this area, and if this is scratched it can be removed and replaced.

Panasonic UF-490 - Two streaks down page


Either the glass is scratched or the sensor has gone bad that is used to scan the image.  Are you using a document feeder or laying it flat on the glass?  If you are laying it flat on the glass then it is most likely a sensor going bad.  If you are feeding it through the document feeder it could be that the feeder itself needs to be cleaned, or the paper path through the feeder.
If it is the sensor you will need to send it out for repair.  There may be an option to re-calibrate the scanner in the software, that may help if the sensor has just degraded and not failed.
I hope that helps.

Scanner inserts vertical line on some documents


Clean the glass with IsoPropyl Alcohol. Dont use any other solvent. A speck of dust stuck to the glass can give a continuous line in the output
