    It doesn't appear to be dust, but looks slightly milky. It seems to make my scanned photos less sharp looking. I have figured out how to remove most of what is needed except for the front control panel. It has a couple of holes underneath, but I'm not sure if they have screws or ?

    I don't see any tabs - I think it has to do what the 2 holes under the front panel, but I'm not sure how to engage them

    you shouldn't have too, when you scan does it show up on the scan?

    you can purchase can air compressed, see if you can blow it off before removing the glass

Just be careful not to damage anything
the front part might be 'snapped' on, look to see if there are any tabs that you could push in to let the front face come off.
Also, if you get to this point of the glass underneath, look in the system to see what may have caused it.
Lastly, most importantly, make sure every thing is UNPLUGGED so you don't ground it out.

    get a small Philips screw driver and insert in the two holes. most likely these are holes for screws. it will not be a standard screw head type, they use only Philipps head screws

    try that

Where is the carrriage located on my hp 7310 officejet printer?

The carriage is the unit that holds your ink cartridges, usually parked on the right side. When you have carriage stall or carriage jam you usually need to clean the clear plastic strip that runs across behind the carriage assembly, and make sure there are no scraps stopping the travel of the carriage.

You can check the white guide bar that sits above the glass, any marks on there will leave a streak because it is the white reference for the scanner. after that you will probably need a new scan assembly because sometimes single elements will burn out.

HP 7310 All-In-One giving a dark line one scans and copies

I had the same problem but figured it out. Both sections of the top of the printer open and under the left side there is a separate "scanner window" that you can't see unless you open that side. lift your regular scan tray and then pull the left side up (it opens out to the left) and then left the piece that is under it. You should be able to see the thin scanner window. You can clean it with rubbing alcohol or even windex.
