Here are the steps:

Remove and set aside the scanner cover

With printer facing away from you, remove the screw from under the right-hand corner of the lid at the very back behind the hinge. Then remove the two (shorter) screws from the top of the lid, in the square openings.

Turn the printer around, and carefully raise the entire lid. At this point, it is advisable to place a cloth over the printer innards, in case you drop a screw. Remove the three screws along the front of the lid, inside the round recesses, pointing upwards.

Remove the two screws on each side of the lid, pointing upwards.

Gently coax the dark gray cover away from the lighter gray base of the lid. It is probably easier to do this by pulling the front corners slightly outwards, and sliding a finger in between. The top of the lid should come off easily, exposing the underside of the glass.

After cleaning, replace the cover carefully. The lid must be up, and the posts of the hinges must align with the holes at the back. In stall the two (short) screws in these locations first, then replace all the remaining longer screws.

Good luck!!

How do i clean underside of platen glass Canon MP160


for mp160, flip the cover open, the one that you open to gain access to the ink cartridge. you will see two screws at the underside of the scanner base. unscrew both. gently pull down at the front control panel and pop up the front lip of the plastic that holds the platen glass. then, at the back of the printer, adjacent to the paper loading tray, just below the platen glass cover, you will see two clip like stuff. remove the tray by pulling it upwards vigorously but firmly. then, get a flat screw driver to pry these up to release the lock. then, facing the printer, gently pull the whole of the platen glass, together with its plastic frame, towards you. do this while gently rocking the platen glass up and down, or left and right. to return the platen glass, reverse the process.

When I feed pages through the automatic feeder, the copies come out with a streak on them. If I put them directly on the glass it doesn't happen. I have cleaned the platen glass with no result.??


It is a cleaning issue. There is a piece of glass about an inch wide that is next to the platen glass or inside the auto document feeder that is probably dirty depending on your model. Open up the document feeder as if you were clearing an original document jam. Look for a piece of glass inside the ADF, it will run the length of the document feeder. There is probably some dirt or another popular problem is white out. Clean off the glass with glass cleaner or alcohol and it should fix the problem.

Scanner/Printer imageCLASS MF6550


Does it do it on prints aswell as copies?

If so open up the Left hand side door if you peer inside at the fuser (hot bit) can you see any damage. if so needs replacement.

Also could be the drum, look in the same area at the green/blue cylinder, these do up to approx 30,000 pages.

Hope this helps.

How do I clean the INSIDE glass/platen?


You mean the inside of the scanner glass? (The platten is a part of the print unit),

You'll have to remove the sides and read cover. Unplug the scanner wires and remove the scanner assembly. Separate the document feeder from the scanner bed. Open the covers of the scanner bed (usually there are screws holding it together). Remove the glass and clean it. Reverse the process to reassemble.

Be careful. Canon multipasses are built a little like a Chinese puzzle box. There are little snaps everywhere as well as screws. Watch out you don't force anything and cause the snaps to break.

Platen is open message, What is the platen?


Platen is usually referred to as the Copy glass ( Platen Glass) this is where you lift the top to put it onto the glass to make a copy.
Never heard of this message , was it serviced? usually the techs open it to clean the Optics (mirrors) inside.There should be a metal plate with 2-4 screws that hold it.

Black streaks across the page


hello,first of all,make a copy true the adf,and the next on the platen glass,if both copys are good,then the problem is inside the machine,i.e.drum unit or fuser roller damage.
if the strikes only occurs,by using the adf,then cleaning the scanner platen glass,it is the small glass unit!!! on the left side,from the big platen glass..

good luck Sjeuf
