Epson Perfection V30 Scanner

Selected FAQ

How should I clean the scanner?
To keep your scanner operating at its best, clean it periodically as described below.


  • Do not spray glass cleaner directly on the scanner glass; the fluid might leak inside the scanner and damage it.

  • Do not press the glass surface of the document table with any force.

  • Be careful not to scratch or damage the glass surface of the document table, and do not use a hard or abrasive brush to clean it. A damaged glass surface can decrease the scan quality.

  • Never use alcohol, thinner, or corrosive solvent to clean the scanner. These chemicals can damage the scanner components and the case.

  • Be careful not to spill liquid into the scanner mechanism or electronic components. This could permanently damage the mechanism and circuitry.

  • Do not spray lubricants inside the scanner.

  • Never open the scanner case. If you think repairs or adjustments are necessary, contact Epson.

  1. Press the  Power buttton for 3 seconds to turn off the scanner.

  2. Unplug the power cord from the scanner.

  3. Clean the outer case with a cloth dampened with mild detergent and water.

  4. If the glass surface of the document table gets dirty, clean it with a soft dry cloth. If the glass surface is stained with grease or some other hard-to-remove material, use a small amount of glass cleaner on a soft microfiber cloth to remove it. Wipe off all remaining liquid.
