Disconnect and remove the lid. Remove the two screws on the back of the base. Then use a screwdriver or flat blade to slightly open the back seam. Beginning at the back, run a blade up inside the upper part of the side seam. You will need to release three catches on each side. Once the sides are loose, raise the back of the top, while pushing forward, and the two snap catches at the front will release. The top then lifts off and you can clean the glass. Reassemble in reverse order.

I have never done that particular one, but you can remove the glass and clean the bottom. Most are fairly easily removed by removing a few screws. And yes, almost every one of these things do gather dust on the inside. Most come from the factory with it :>)

3490 photos wont feed out after scanning


The Epson 3490 is a flatbed scanner that has an optional business card/4x6 photo auto feeder. Do you have the optional feeder attached & plugged into the correct connecter on the back of the scanner? Also, make sure the Epson scanning software has been configured to use the auto feeder. http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/ProductQuickSpec.jsp?BV_UseBVCookie=yes&oid=48059604&category=

How do I clean the underside of the glass on the 2450 epson perfection scanner?


Scanners are not meant to be user serviceable. This means that to clean the inside of the scanner, its better that it be brought to the manufacturer who can do this in a safe and correct manner. Believe me, it is worth doing this than ending up having a non-working scanner.

My epson 3490 photo scanner isn't working theres a red light on the front of the scanner which is flashing


If the start button light is flashing red, it is because of one of the following problems:

  • The scanner is not connected to your computer properly or your software is not fully installed.
  • The transportation lock is locked. Slide the lock to the unlock position.
After trying these solutions, unplug the scanner to turn it off, then plug it back in.

Scanning 110 negative film


I just finished scanning many 110 film strips. You need to lay the strip along the inside edge of slot A and scan in normal preview mode. On the preview strip, put a marquee around each individual photo and scan each one separately. Worked fine for me.
