Got this from Canon.com: The foggy haze on the glass is actually an anti-glare treatment that has been intentionally applied to the underside of the scanner glass. This treatment lessens the glare from the lamp under the glass and provides better image quality. This haze may not appear uniform because of the shape of the scanner base and the components under the glass. However, the anti-glare treatment has been uniformly applied and the haze is as expected.

To open the Canoscan 8600 to clean the inside of the glass: Gently pry off the silver "c-shaped" trim piece on the front of the scanner. Slide the silver trim pieces on each side of the scanner forward and remove them. Gently pry off the remaining black trim piece on the front of the unit. This exposes 3 phillips head screws at the front of the scanner. Remove them. Pull straight up on the rear lid of scanner (where the 2 hinges are) to remove the top. This exposes 2 screws at the bottoms of the wells that secure the hinges. Remove them. Now the top is held by only 2 clips - 1 on each side. Pull up gently on the left side of the panel, front and back, and slide the panel back towards the rear. That should free the clip. Repeat for the right side. Take it easy, and you won't break anything.

I have a CanoScan 8600F. When I want to scan I get the not enough space on the target disk


This seems to happen quite often with the Canon scanners. If you know you have enough space on your hard drive, open the CanoScan Toolbox, then click on Settings and change the folder where the temporary files are stored to another folder of your choice, or create a new one in your documents.

the 8600F.

Lost setup CD


Hi,

go to the canon website. There you find all the drivers and setup programs that were on the disk for download.

I did the search for you. Go to this link:

CanoScan 8600F support


Select your operating system and you will see download links appear.
