How do I get the platen glass off of my M20i? Either it is stuck or I'm doing something wrong. I need to clean the under side of the glass. Can anybody help?

1. Remove the Document Feeder
2. Remove the Doc Scanner
3. Find the hooks on the Doc Scanner to the right and left to separate the glass frame from the plastic scanner housing.

That should give you access. Best of luck.

The screen says the Paten glass needs to be cleaned. What is the paten glass? Also when copies are made a black line is showing up on the edge of the copy.


Hi,
platen glass means that you need to clean the copy glass - glass where you put the originals for copying.
If you have an auto document cleaner there is also small glass on left side of "platen glass" wich is seen when you open the copy machine cover or dadf.

The black line is probably from dirt on copy glass, I pressume because courectour liquid ( most common ). use some stronger detergent or wd-40 to disolve the dirt and clean with glass detergent and dry it.

If you still have the black line try to print something from machine.If you do not have it on print its the copy glass problem - clean it - again.

Pls.rate

Adjustment for light copies on a xerox m20i


You will need to do a couple of things, 1 remove, disassemble the scanner and thoroughly clean it, and while you have the scanner out, remove and clean the laser.
The toner cartridge may also be defective. that metering blade in that cartridge fails and causes light images also.
If you need instructions on how to remove and clean the scanner and laser let me know, I will type them out to you.
Not hard, just time consuming.
If you print out a report how does that look? If prints look fine and just the copies are light, then the mirrors in the scanner head a re probably fogged up. All the plastic in that scanner causes that same film on your scanner optics as you develop on your car windshield. Same process.

This gives step-by-step instructions on how to clean the area dealing with the platen glass.

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

Sounds like a dirty seal glass. Clean the glass on the left side of the scanner. The 1/2 inch strip of glass.

Verical line(s) problem with canon mp780


Hi Nick, It's ONLY when you copy? I start by cleaning the platen glass. Wipe the Platen Glass with a clean, soft, lint-free cloth moistened with water. Then wipe with a clean, soft, dry, lint-free cloth making sure not to leave any residue, especially on the Platen Glass. If you have trouble getting the scanning area clean, wipe with diluted mild detergent (for dish washing). Do the same thing for the white area under the platen lid. If this does not resolve the problem let me know. His Dudeness
