Scanner Tips 2 " Don'ts "


<span>Never apply solution directly on the scanner glass. If you find that the glass is dirty or has a slight dust or smoke film underneath and on the inside, do not unscrew the lid and try to clean it from inside. It's always advisable to call an authorized service center. </span><br /> <span>Never use abrasives, isopropyl alcohol, benzene, acetone etc on the scanner glass, as this will streak and cloud the glass, and can Even cause damage. </span><br /> <span>Never place your scanner near heating vents or windows, or other locations where moisture might affect its functioning. Also remember: If you are moving the scanner from one place to another, make sure that the transportation lock is enabled, as this prevents the CCD array mechanism from moving. Push down the lock, which is located at the back of the scanner. Remember to unlock the scanner before you attempt to operate it, or you may end up damaging it. </span>

On a scanned document there is a line down the right hand side as if there is a mark on the paper. This is not the case and is only showing on the scanned document. How do I rectify this?


This line is being caused by something stuck to your scanner glass. It simply needs to be cleaned. The scanner glass is going to be located in 1 of 2 places. Most common is location is just to the left side of the large scanner glass. So lift up your document feeder and look at the large glass where you may sometimes place an original to be scanned or copied. Now look just to the left of that glass. Do you see a much thinner "strip" of glass? If so then clean this strip glass with a soft cloth and a bit of glass cleaner or water. If there is no strip glass located here then it will be located inside of the feeder area where you documents are fed in to be scanned. These feeder units usually just pop open. If your documents go in face up the the strip glass will be on the upper portion. More common is the face down feeding which means the glass will be on the bottom. Sometimes a flashlight is handy here. Just open up the feeder unit and look for a thin strip of glass that runs from the front towards the back. It is about 1 inch wide. Once you locate it just clean it as mentioned above. Close everything back up and give it a try.
Eccentially what is happening here is that something has gotten stuck to the glass and since when scanning, the documents are "dragged" past this glass, anything that is stuck or stationary on the glass is read as a solid line.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

2210 making noises right back side,originally said needs relignment,know it says scanner failure


Hello, Tim.

Often, the problem is that the scanner mirror needs to be cleaned.

If you are comfortable, disassemble and clean the scanner equipment. Sticks, glasses and mirrors, all should be accessible.

Some notes:
- Clean everything with glass cleaner
- Check where the white stripe is on the bottom of the glass plate
- Put a mark on the plastic, where this stripe is located, so you know the location of the stripe on the outside as well.
- Enlarge this mark, so it is on the main body as well
- Remove the glass again
- Align the scan head by hand, so that the bottom mirror is exactly on line with your mark
- Put everything back together
- Be careful, don't move the scan unit
- Turn it on when it's complete

If still a problem, the unit needs to be serviced.

Hope this helps.

How to Clean the inner part of the glass for scanning


Generally you should not have to clean the underside of the glass unless you are in a high dust environment. This would require disassembly of most of the printer itself. The glass is held in by double-sided tape or a bead of glue, so don't try to remove the glass sheet itself.

The easy part is the beginning, removing the scanner cover. Next you will have to locate screws around the outside and start taking panels off. Keep note of the panels and the screws. After the side panels are off, there should be a set of screws around the scanner itself that hold the scanner and plastic casing with the scanner glass. Once those are removed, the scanner glass with its frame should be able to be removed. From there you can use whatever you would like for glass cleaning, make sure it is streak free.

Older scanners make this easier. Most of them are 4-6 screws and the top half pops off and can be easily cleaned. A multifunction isn't so fun in this sense.

Hope this helps!
