Tips for a great answer:
To open the Canoscan 8600 to clean the inside of the glass: Gently pry off the silver "c-shaped" trim piece on the front of the scanner. Slide the silver trim pieces on each side of the scanner forward and remove them. Gently pry off the remaining black trim piece on the front of the unit. This exposes 3 phillips head screws at the front of the scanner. Remove them. Pull straight up on the rear lid of scanner (where the 2 hinges are) to remove the top. This exposes 2 screws at the bottoms of the wells that secure the hinges. Remove them. Now the top is held by only 2 clips - 1 on each side. Pull up gently on the left side of the panel, front and back, and slide the panel back towards the rear. That should free the clip. Repeat for the right side. Take it easy, and you won't break anything.
