This printer has a scanner cover that pivots to gain access to the printer. The cover has a curved plastic support arm that must be gently pried off the scanner part in order to expose an otherwise inaccessible screw.

There are also three other hidden screws which must be removed prior to disassembly of your printer.


No parts specified.

    • Lift open the scanner cover.

    • Gently pry off the scanner cover support arm. This is the scariest part as the arm is all plastic. There is a small nob projecting into the path of the slider in the middle of the arm. Hold the cover open to minimize contact with the support arm while prying.

    • Carefully remove part of the printer badge on the front right hand side of the printer. Underneath you will expose the first of three hidden screws.
