Yes you can disassembly this scanner, by unlocking the points of locks (see under the scanner).

Can I disassemble an hp office jet e609n printer, to clean the inside


Wisdom says no. If you want to clean the paper path easily go to an office supply store and get printer cleaning paper. It is sticky on both sides and will remove paper dust from the pick up roller and all the other rollers inside. It will also clean any leftover bits of paper from jams. Any internal dust buildup will be cleaned too.

The glass pannel of the scanner of my Epson Stylus TX100 is cloudy/fogged up/dirty on the inside. How do I clean it?


Do a Google search on how to disassemble it to clean the glass. Before you do this, scan something to see it if works. You don't want to waste hours of time only to discover that it's dead.
These older scanners are dirt cheap so don't waste too much time or money fixing old **** that's gonna fail soon anyway.

The glass became dirty in the inside face I want to clean the glass from the inner side how to disassemble the unit in order to get access to the glass


Of course don't do this if you can avoid it, but I found it somewhat simple (on my 3rd or 4th try). For some reason my scanner came from the factory with a dirty inside glass, and even though it didn't seem to affect the scanning, it bugged me enough to want to clean it. So here's what I did ...

1) lock the lamp (switch on the bottom)

2) open the lid and remove the 2 screws - one left, one right.
(The one in the middle can stay in.)

3) Here's the tricky part - the lid and glass and framing around the glass can slide out toward the back (or top ... toward the screws). Only go out an inch or two.

4) Lift the lid from the front - glass and all and try not to separate the lid from the flat wire attachment. This is designed to come out, so it's okay if it does - it's just hard to get back in!

5) clean the glass. It is glass, so I used isopropol alcohol. Clean with a lent free cloth and make sure all the streaks are gone.

6-9) reverse steps 4 through 1 to reassemble.

10) clean the top surface same as step 5 (prior to plugging it back in of course).

I was afraid I may have been too ******* it when I had to re-insert the wire (mine came out during step 4), but it seems to be working. Hope so because this is a great little scanner. ;)

Hope this helps.

Clean the wire in the drum (remove drum and place it upside down) by moving the blue plastic tab from left to right several times.

It fixed the problem for me.

Dirty glass inside scanner


To clean the glass on the inside you must disassemble the unit so that you have access to the underside of the glass. If you save all your screws and are careful to lay things out in the order you remove the it is easy to put it back together and you do not have to worry about breaking anything.
Once you have access to the underside of the glass I use real windex and newspaper. With the newspaper you get a streak free shine with no lint particles. If there is dust inside the glass there is most likely dust on the scanners optics. Gently clean them the same way. Be gentle when cleaning the scan bar optics. They are not extremely delicate but it will break if you apply too much pressure as it is a long thin piece of glass.
When you put your scanner all back together it will scan as good as new and all the little black specs and streaks will be gone in your scans. I've done this 100+ times and it works every time. If you need help feel free to contact me an I will walk you through it for free.
I hope you found this info detailed enough to fix your scanner yourself, But If you need some help or moral support feel free to E-mail me and I will even call you for free. Make sure to say what you need in your E-mail as I fix a lot of things for people.

You need to disassemble the printer cover, I do not have an exploded view for your specific model, but you should start from the hinges. This job may be tricky, it is not a standard user maintenance operation, I would recommend having it done by a profesional
