Quote from Chris: "Once the cover was loose I
simply unplugged the small ribbon cable that attaches to the front
controls. I used the cleaning procedure as described on your web-site [Canon8400F]
(thanks again for this). I did not dig any deeper than cleaning the haze
off the platen as I was not sure where any mirrors were located. I might
tackle that aspect in the future if needed. Perhaps I should not have, but
dishwashing soap (Dawn) did not remove the haze very well so I did end up
using blue Windex. I can't discern any adverse effects on the window.
There is still a trace of haze left, but it is much better than it was.
Re-assembly was simply the reverse of the above."
I recommend using Isopropyl Alcohol for cleaning the glass instead of Windex. Webmaster
