    Hi Shaggy,



    Many thanks...the 6700U doesnt have screws, just glued plastic strips down the side. Managed to prise them off and did a 100% successful repair.



    Many thanks for the assistance!!

How do you open case to clean inside of glass


Lock the carriage first! Remove the two medium-sized Phillips screws under the hinge and the small one over the small plastic cover plate. Remove that cover plate. Slide the top tray (glass and cover) off the frame by pulling laterally in the direction of the hinge. It will snap out if you work on it. Clean the glass. Slide tray back in and seat it securely. Put the large screws in to hold the carriage. You won't be able to screw them in if the cover isn't seated right. Now make sure the 5-conductor ribbon cable that is under the small plastic cover plate gets stuck back in the socket. You just push it into the tiny black socket. I think that tells the scanner what's going on with the cover. Then reinstall the cover plate. Now you should be good to go! Don't forget to unlock the carriage.

How do I open up a CanoScan LIDE50 so I can reattach a loose cable?


Hi,

Most (but not all) desktop scanners' casing are locked in place by bottom screws. Often these screws (2~4) would be underneath the rubber feet/pad of the scanner or a sticker. In some models, there are narrow slots underneath. These slots are the locking points of the top cover and would require the use of a flat screwdriver to pry open. Still others are simple snap locks at the front/rear portion of the junctions of the top and bottom cover/panel. Other than the screw type, most opening would require a bit of force to un-snap the locks. It helps to slightly pry the joints open with a flat tool such as a metal ruler and force only on the areas determined to have the snaps.

Should you be successful in prying the halves apart, the glass is held in place sometimes by an angular plastic strip locked in place by 2 small screws.

The driver is available here. Pls be reminded that drivers are OS specific.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up of should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Lock Switch and IF cable


Mine was doing the same thing. When I get on the program, before I click "acquire" to preview and scan, I click OFF the toolbox and then everything seems to be okay and I can go ahead and scan.
