Question about HP Scanjet 6300c Flatbed Scanner
These brown stripes on the right and left hand edge of the scan window are caused by smoking near the scanner. The front side mirrors located on the moving scan head need to be cleaned. You can accomplish this by removing the top of the scanner which includes the glass. Remove the clip that tensions the small but long cogged belt. Don't worry about repositioning the assembly correctly, the scanner will reset its position information when it initializes. Once the mirrors are removed, do not handle the mirrored surfaces excessively. Clean very carefully with some liquid soap and set on a clean towel. Dry with clean cotton balls and alcohol if required. Reinstall in their proper locations, making sure the clips hold the mirrors in the correct position. Replace the belt and tensioning clip. Replace the top of the scanner.
Start up the scanner and let it initialize. You should be off an running.
