If it is dirty on the underside, you will have to take the scavver unit apart.
Here is the service manual.

How to clean the underside of the scanner glass on an HP4400C flatbed scanner.


This is acutally easier than it looks. I just had the same problem with a cloudy film starting to form underneath the glass on my older HP 4400C scanner.

First completely remove the hinged top lid by lifting straight up on both long ends of the lid - notice the 2 hinges on the back end of the lid will come straight up and out of the body of the scanner, still attached to the lid.

Next look down inside the 2 hinge holes (on the main body of the scanner where the lid hinges just came out of) and you will see a screw in each hole. Remove both screws using a phillips screwdriver. This will allow the rear end of the scanner to come apart enough so you can now lift it up a few inches to separate it and get your hand inside there to clean the underside of the glass with a soft cloth - BUT JUST REMEMBER THE FRONT END OF THE SCANNER WILL STILL BE CONNECTED, so don't pull it too far apart because it could snap and break something that is still holding the front end together. (I could not figure out how to separate the front end piece, and then I realized I didn't have to).

So on the rear end of the scanner, now carefully pull the light upper colored plastic apart from the lower dark plastic just enough so you can get your hand inside the compartment and use a soft cloth to clean the underside of the glass. I just used a small piece of an old cotton t-shirt with a couple little dabs of water on it and then just kept rubbing the dirty areas on the underside of the glass over and over until all the dust film/streaks disappeared and the glass was once again clean and all clear.

Then gently lower the glass back down and line up the plastic pieces together on the rear end and put the 2 screws back in the hinge holes, and then reinsert the hinges in their slots and lower the lid back on top of the scanner glass and it is ready to go again !!

Hope this works for you like it did for me.

I using lexmark x215 i dont have cd but i installed drivery from lexmark site now my printer is ok but i dont know how to scan my docunments bc i dont have scan software where i scan my docunments so tell...


  1. Check the connections between the two machines.
  2. Lift the printer's document lid. Examine the scanning surface and the underside of the lid for dust and fingerprints.
  3. Put the document you wish to scan face-down on the glass. Use the alignment markers to help you square up the object. These are usually found on the left-hand edge of the scanning area.
  4. Close the printer's document lid slowly so the document does not shift position.
  5. Select a scan resolution. The higher the dpi (dots per inch) count, the sharper and more detailed the image.
  6. Push the scan button. You may have to do this on the printer itself or on your computer.
  7. Check the preview of your scan on your computer. Depending on your all-in-one printer and software, you may have to prompt your computer to display the preview for you.
  8. Edit the image as it appears on your computer if you want to make changes. Your scanning software might let you enlarge, resize or otherwise manipulate the final product.StepAccept the scan and save. Return the original document to a safe location.

I need to clean the underside of the glass on my Canonscan Lide20


How on earth did the underside of the glass get dirty?

Ok, never mind that... in the end, it's NOT worth it. In the old days, you could have since scanners were as big as printers are today... but now they are definitely NOT designed for the consumer to service. The scanner is designed for accuracy, even if you were to get it all apart, the odds that you maintain the precision and integrity of the bulb, the track on which the bulb moves, etc, are very slim.

Suggestion... How is the printer you have holding up? If it's getting on in age, it may be a wise investment to purchase a dual scanner/printer (as long as you are spending the money).

Hope that helps :)

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.
