소개

Your printer is bound to collect dust over time, and a lot of this dust rests on the underside of your scanner glass. This affects the quality of your scans.

Cleaning the scanner glass is fairly simple: the scanner tray must be removed prior to removing the scanner glass.

Proper cleaning of your scanner glass will require alcohol and a lint-free cloth.

    • Underneath the control panel will be a flat grey ribbon cable. This cable is attached at the base of the green control board with the other end of the cable located on the back side of the printer's base.

    • Carefully disconnect both ends of the flat grey ribbon cable to release the control panel in its entirety.

      • Only pull from the connector portion of the cable, as pulling on the wires may damage them.

I thought my printer was a goner for sure, then I stumbled on this site. All I had to do was clean the glass- it looked terrible!- and put it all back together. It was easy. I truly appreciate not having to get another printer- THANKS!

Worked great, but it did take more than 2-3 minutes!

This saved me and my printer!! Thx so much! In fact, the dust flocks were just against the internal buses and under the control panel. And I also found out that one can check most of the machine without having to uncable the grey ribbons.

Handle with extreem care though.

Thx thx thx!

Thanks for the tutorial, it saved me a lot of time ;-).

Now I’m back on track printing what I need.

Jose De Araujo - 답글

Thank you so much for the great instructions! I’ve had my printer for over 14 years and it still works great! Just needed to clean the dust under the scanner glass to help get clearer scans of old photos that I am storing on my computer. Hope HP keeps making the ink for this so I can continue to use it for many more years!
