Carefully! Don't spray anything directly onto the scanner glass. Mist a lint-free cloth with water and gently, very gently, wipe the glass. If you are just removing dust, this will work. If there are other 'things' on the glass, then you need to go a different route. If there are gooey or gummy things on the glass, use Goo Gone in the same manner as with the water above, but use VERY LITTLE as it can smear. You want to make sure that you don't scratch the glass. When you are done, use canned air or even a hair dryer to blow off any excess 'stuff' that you may not be able to see with the naked eye.

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 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 do I get the platen glass off of my M20i? Either it is stuck or I'm doing something wrong. I need to clean the under side of the glass. Can anybody help?


1. Remove the Document Feeder
2. Remove the Doc Scanner
3. Find the hooks on the Doc Scanner to the right and left to separate the glass frame from the plastic scanner housing.

That should give you access. Best of luck.

How can you clean the glass on a Canon 8600F


Got this from Canon.com: The foggy haze on the glass is actually an anti-glare treatment that has been intentionally applied to the underside of the scanner glass. This treatment lessens the glare from the lamp under the glass and provides better image quality. This haze may not appear uniform because of the shape of the scanner base and the components under the glass. However, the anti-glare treatment has been uniformly applied and the haze is as expected.

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 :)

Clean glass on MP830?


Best left alone this one, even printer technicians dont remove glass on the scanner unit they just replace the whole scanner assembly, the reason? there are a lot of plastic clips holding it together and springs and cables that are easily dislodged,

often the improvement in scan quality isn't as great as one would think.
the scanner assembly can be replaced as a unit for around $200
