    I have just the same problem. My pictures show some white strips (artistically placed, I have to admit) due to the dust shown in the inside face.

Hey! I've just find the solution. The only thing you need is a multi-screwdriver to take out the two screws sitted on the backside, then use a screwdriver with a plain point to separate the dark grey plastic piece from the light grey one (use a few toothpicks to keep every flap open). When you get all the flaps open just pull the light grey piece (the bottom one) and separate the dark one with the lid and the glass. Now you can clean conscientiounly the glass. Be sure to put in its right place the back little plastic piece that covers the power connector before closing your scanner when it's clean. Close it introducing the front side before and pressing over every flap. Work done! enjoy you Epson scanner!

I apologize for my english, maybe I've used any unconvenient word, but I think you'll understand it.

Why is there a line on the left side of my copy when I use the ADF on my Canon Image Clas D1150? It does not do it when the flatbed is used. Please help. Thanks, Joann


When lines appear on copies of documents fed through the ADF, it typically means that there is some kind of dirt or foreign material on the glass that the document passes over. A different window is used when scanning from the ADF as opposed to the flatbed. The flatbed window is large, often much larger than a standard sheet of paper. The ADF window, on the other hand, is small and slender. It doesn't need to be large because the document moves over it (as opposed to the flatbed, where the document is stationary while the scanner moves under it).

The ADF window is usually situated next to the flatbed glass on the side of the scanner where the ADF takes in the paper. Open the scanner lid (as though you were going to make a copy on the flatbed) and find the slender piece of glass just under where the ADF would be when the lid is closed. Once you've located the ADF glass, use a mild glass cleaner and a lint-free cloth to gently clean the surface of the glass. If you are able to see the foreign material, you can remove it by hand, but be sure to clean the glass thoroughly afterwards, as fingerprints can also cause poor quality copies.

After the glass has been cleaned, test the ADF copy function and make sure the line has disappeared. If it has not, you may need to remove the slender glass and clean the underside (though this is almost never required, as the underside is protected from environmental debris).

If you find this solution helpful, please leave a positive rating!

Try cleaning the scanner glass real good with alcohol. If that doesn't help, you may have to get a tecchnician to disassemble it to clean the underside of the glass and the scanner.

When I scan a document with a white bacground, it prints with a light grey background.


This is a fairly common problem with copiers. It is usually caused by a dirty optical path, an overtoned condition, or failing developer. If you are qualified to do so, I would say clean the optical path by removing the glass and cleaning the underside of the glass and all the mirrors.

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.
