Question about Epson Perfection V100 Flatbed Scanner
There are some fungus in side of my scanner glass. It is visible scanned pictures. How can I clean it? My scanner is Epson perfection 660.
The cover of the V600 scanner is also pretty straightforward to take apart and clean. The screws to take out are on the underside of the cover and there's one on the back. Once those are out it's pretty easy to separate the two parts.
The thing that has the light(s) in it will swing up while staying connected to the belt that drives it, usually, But even if it comes off the belt, it's pretty easy to put it back on. The scanner seems to calibrate it's position, so you need not worry about getting it re-attached in exactly the right position. I've done this a few times and it always worked just fine afterwards.
Cleaing the inside of the cover is particular important if you live where roaches are a problem. Roaches just love to nest inside this scanner, and can easily crawl in through the holes in the cover. I've covered most of those holes with tape, but the holes where the hinges are are more problematic. I've stated storing the scanner in a roach-proff box between sessions.
This is a FANTASTIC scanner - it does a superb job scanning medium format film.

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.
