Underside of scanner bed needs cleaned


Start by taking the back cover off. Then the 2 side covers, being careful not to break the speaker wires.
There will be 2 screws holding the sanner into the machine, you need to remove them. Carefully disconnect the ribbon cable, remove the ground screw, and all the connectors to the scanner and document feeder. It will have to be popped backward to unlatch it from the frame.
Remove the document feeder, take notice how you remove the wires so you can route them properly when reassemling.
Remove the screws holding the control consol and the scanner together.
There also will be some plastic tabs holding it snapped together. Seperate the glass frame from the remainder of the scanner.
disasseble the scanner head carefully being cautious not to break the lamps so you can clean the mirrors. Then clean the underside of the glass.
Then in reerse order, taking your time, reasseble the machine. Make sure to route the wires properly and carefully.
A bit time consuming, but the scanner must be removed and disassembled to clean it.

How to clean underside of platen?


The underside of the scanner glass can only be reached by a a canon service tech. The compartment is supposed to be sealed and dust-free, so if it has gotten dirty, you should send the unit back to Canon for servicing.
