    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.

Regards,

What are the approved cleaning fluids for use on the underside of the object glass?


  • Use any fluid approved for use on glasses or camera lenses. Glasses and photo lenses have coatings that should not be subjected to be acidic cleaners. Windex, for example should never be used on car window tint... who knew?!?

How to Clean Scanner Glass


Steps how to clean scanner glass

1. Unplug the power cord.
2. Clean the outer case with a cloth dampened with a mild detergent and water.
3. If the document table glass gets dirty, clean it with a soft dry cloth. If the glass is stained with grease or some other hard-to-remove material, use a small amount of glass cleaner and a soft cloth to remove it. Wipe off all remaining liquid.
4. Ensure that there is no dust on the glass of the document table. Dust can cause white spots in your scanned images.

*** CAUTION: Do not press on the document table glass too hard.

5. Be careful not to scratch or damage the document table glass, and do not use a hard or abrasive brush to clean it. A damaged glass surface can decrease the scanning quality.
6. Never use alcohol, paint thinner or corrosive solvent to clean the scanner. These chemicals can damage the scanner components as well as the case.
7. Be careful not to spill liquid into the scanner mechanism or electronic components. This could permanently damage the mechanism and circuitry.
8. Do not spray lubricants inside the scanner.
9. Never open the scanner case.

***NOTE: Wipe the inside of the document cover and the scanner's document table before scanning transparencies.

How to clean the underside of the glass in a HP scanjet 2400


Hi ,
You probably already found this :

According to it , you should normaly contact a HP technician to have the job done . Nevertheless , I succeeded to clean the underside of the glass inside a HP Scanjet 5470C wich seems similar to your model 2400 . If you take of the lid of the unit , you should find two screws in the opening of the hinges . Unscrew them and lift up the the whole top of the unit . You might encounter somme kind of resistance during the operation but I finally succeeded to get the it free that way .
Best regards .

How do you clean the underside of hp5590 glass?


Detach the ADF assembly. Remove the 4 case screws from the scanner bottom. The case has a notch at the back that has to be unclipped to separate the top and bottom. Clean the glass underside repeatedly, I use methylated spirits on soft toilet roll. Check in the glare of the scanner light, and reassemble.

Cleaning underside of glass on 610 scanner glass has mildew on underside


Ok. Found this question on-line as I also wanted to know the answer. Couldnt find an answer so I just decided to have a go myself. It was quite easy really. Lift the lid upwards and gently push it backwards from the hinged end and it will unclip. With the scanner facing away from you, undo the only 2 screws visible at the back. Then gently lift up and push forward towards the front. You can see thru the glass 3 plasic lugs holding the front down. With a little wiggle the cover with the glass attached will come away from the slotted holes where the plastic lugs go. Clean glass an carefully replace lid in the reverse order. Pete

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 :)
