Cleaning Your Scanner

To keep your product working at its best, you should clean it several times a year.
Do not use a hard brush, alcohol, or paint thinner to clean the product or you may damage it. Do not use oil or other lubricants inside the product or let water get inside it. Do not open the product case. Do not press the surface of the scanner glass with any force and be careful not to scratch or damage the scanner glass. A damaged glass surface can decrease the scan quality.
  1. Turn off the scanner.
  2. Unplug the AC adapter.
  3. Disconnect the USB cable.
  4. Clean the outer case with a cloth dampened with mild detergent and water.
  5. If the scanner glass gets dirty, clean it with a soft, dry cloth. If the glass surface is stained with grease or some other hard-to-remove material, use a small amount of glass cleaner on a soft cloth to remove it. Wipe off all remaining liquid.

    Note: Do not spray glass cleaner directly on the scanner glass.
  6. Clean the glass areas shown using the Epson cleaning kit.

    Note: Do not use the Epson cleaning kit to clean the document glass.
  7. Clean the document mat in the same manner as the scanner glass.

    Note: Do not let dust build up on the scanner glass or document mat. Dust on the scanner glass can cause spots in your scanned images. Dust on the smaller glass can cause lines and streaks in your scanned images.
  8. Open the ADF cover and use a soft, dry cloth to clean the interior of the ADF and the rollers shown here.

    The rollers only turn in one direction. Do not force the rollers to turn in the wrong direction or you may damage your scanner.

    Do not touch the separation pad inside the ADF cover or you may damage your scanner.
