GPa Rocks: Great video. Now I have removed all the fog from the underside of the glass. Next project -- I need help to replace the light bulb for scanning slides/film. I've removed 4 visible screws. With some difficulty I've been able to separate the cover at the hinge end and I'm able to reach in to the area where the light is. The front of the cover is still tightly secured with 2 screws that are "hidden" under the rubber cushions on the lid. Remove these screws and the lid should separate. Where does one find a replacement lamp (P01728063524)?
Will Pickrell: Great help, thanks!
Andrew Fuller: Excellent. Thank you for the video. I had exactly the same issue with the fog. All clean now!!!
Erwin de Groot: Thanks, very helpfull tutorial. My 8600f developed quite a fog at the underside of the glass.
Lat Long: Thank you "teweview". I'm happy with my clean glass now. You could teach Harry Houdini a few tricks.
Gerrit Harteveld: Thanks for the video. I love this scanner, best piece of kit i ever bought. Bought it under Windows XP and under Windows 10 the drivers/software still works.
imfletcher6: Love you, man. Thank you so much. This is a big saver.!! Thank you for doing the hard work to figure this out!!
Carlos del Burgo del Burgo: Excelent. Many Thanks for sharing!
gino48: Thanks very much for an excellent video. I had tolerated foggy scanner glass for way too long and your clear instructions and video provided the motivation to get this done, and indeed, it took only a few minutes. Thanks again.
S Swan: Am trying to clean the top section / lid of my canonscan8800F without any luck. That section of the scanner is used to scan slides, film etc. However, there is an enormous amount of dust on the this upper scanning area.
Have tried taking the top section apart without getting anywhere. There are three screws and once removed nothing wants to budge.
Anyone with experience cleaning this section of the scanner please let me know.
mep2510: Many thanks for posting this video. Found it very helpful
Ali Grant: Many Thanks The one I bought from eBay was badly fogged and dusty. Probably due to it sitting unused for a year or two. At last a useful YouTube video and NO annoying music !!
Bob Gleason: Thank-you so much for posting this video - I have used this procedure a couple of times now and am delinquent in my thanks......... It works like a charm.
Dennis Chapman: I had the same problem with my 8600F as did you.....the inside glass was fogged. I tried to figure a way to take it apart, but to no avail. I called Canon and they could not provide me with a service manual, and it was going to cost $125 + to fix a scanner worth about the same. Thanks for your Youtube Video; you have saved me money, time and frustration. I cannot thank you enough for your clear and explicit video. There is no way that I would have figured it out on my own without breaking something..and I am a very tech guy (having built radios, computers and other electronic stuff). Thanks again..YOU ARE THE MAN !!!!
zilfondel: Vinegar is one of the best cleaning agents for glass, btw. Rubbing alcohol also works well.
Jean Degryse: blablabla
DG Playerman: Thank you for taking the time to make this video. I have had this scanner for years and it does an excellent job but the fog inside was driving me crazy. I just hated seeing the fog. Canon told me that this was normal so I just accepted it. I just clean the glass this weekend with no problems. The glass is crystal clean.
Peter Kalinak: Actually I just found it is much more easier to open 8800f, just release four screws and front panel. thats it :)
Peter Kalinak: Great video, I have the same problem with 8800f, I am going to try. In general be carreful with magnets, it can influence you mechanics if its metal. cheers :)
Юрий Перепелицын: Thanks for this video!
