Question about Epson Perfection 1240U Flatbed Scanner
The glass platen of the scanner has become detached and has fallen down. What sort of adhesive or double-sided tape is recommended to attach the glass to the plastic of the scanner body? Bear in mind that the glass is mounted beneath the upper body so the adhesive or tape must be strong enough to support the weight of the glass.
The glass plate in scanners is almost always held in by some kind of 2 sided adhesive tape AND plastic clips. Th adhesive probably failed, but the glass plate is probably at an angle and not resting on the plastic clips correctly. These act as a failsafe in this very situation, so the glass plate doesn't break or damage the scanner guts.
Anyway, if you want a permanent repair, this is the tape you should use: Amazon com 3M Scotch Heavy Duty Mounting Tape Clear 4010 Double Sided...
It will definitely support the weight of the glass and then some. Be careful with this stuff, it will remove paint (or worse) from drywall. You should only need 4 strips, one for each edge of the glass. Apply it firmly to the glass, then stick the glass onto the plastic bracket.
