How to replace a broken scanner glass?

History

A picture frame fell on top of the printer and cracked the scanner glass, scanner not working. Is there a replacement glass and how do i replace it?

scanner not working after frame broke glass

Dorman Charles,

try http://www.everprint.com, you need to know the part no. I believe they also have manuals. You can also try http://www.fixyourownprinter.com I've been lucky and got a service manual from there recently.

You might try to find a non-printing machine on eBay. These things are sold as a loss leader to get you to buy ink. Rarely are they worth trying to fix. A new one on Amazon is about $75.00: http://www.amazon.com/HP-Photosmart-Prin...

This price includes $25 worth of ink. Some things are just made to be disposable and ink jet printers are at the top of the list. Laser printers are becoming the same way, a full set of toners cost about what the whole thing does. Sorry

+ I fully agree with what mayer says here. I would like to add that you may be better off looking to Craigslist.org for your local area to find another one to use or acquire your glass. I see AIO printers like yours for free all the time in my area. People give them away once they figure out they can buy another printer for the same price (or less) of replacing the ink cartridges.

ABCellars,

a quick scan of ebay and the like show that it's cheaper to buy new... ho hum.

pollytintop,

+ agreed with all of the above comments. Even if you got the manual for the how, you still have to find the new glass which in itself is an obvious challenge. This is one of those cases where economics should outweigh the need to fix it :-)

Open up the printer, take out the old glass, get some new picture glass 3mm cut to size, stick it in using sticky fixer strip. Cost £5. Satisafaction: great.
