This step is easier with two people. Carefully have one person lift the hood of the printer 2-3 inches above where it was resting. Remove the ribbon cables and wires attaching the motherboard (the only green PCB board) to the hood by gently pulling upward on them. When all three cables are removed, lift the hood away from the printer and set it aside.

After having the hood removed and disassembled, locate the scanner. Adjust the scanner wheel such that  fits into the  path. If the black ribbon cable is twisted, untwist it so it appears as shown.
