Question about Umax Astra 1200S Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

How do I access the underside of the Flatbed scanner to clean it?

The glass on the flatbed scanner, Dexxa brand, but Artec AS6E product, dropss down, and I am unable to detect anyway in which to access the 'inside' of the scanner, so I can repair or replace whatever is necessary to restore the glass so it does not drop down anymore. The user manual provides no relief, and I can not find any way of accessing that area, ie. separate the top from the bottom, etc. If anybody knows how to access the inside of the scanner 'box' so I can clean the bottom of the glass, and apply double-sided fibreglass tape or ??? to re-secure the glass, please advise. Thank you! Arjay The glass in our ten year old scanner also came loose. There are two phillips head screws on the top. If you unscrew them the case comes apart. Look for screws. I'm trying to clean the adhesive off the glass and the plastic, and a suitable replacement double-sided tape.

Re: How do I access the underside of the Flatbed scanner...

Remove the lid by lifting up. There are two philips head screws exposed. Remove screws and lift top of scanner off. Pay particular attention to thumb wheel position when lifting. Go to computer repair center and buy double sided tape. replace tape and reverse process

How i can scan multiple pages in one file ??

You need a document feeder. The printer has on or it doesn't. If it does you usually place the documents face up in the overhead feeder and the scan sensor in the printer will detect a load of paper in the feeder and choose to there instead of a single sheet under the glass.
