How to Replace Shattered Scanner Glass

Accidents happen to the best of us, and if you accidentally drop your scanner from the table, or knock something heavy into it, then your scanner glass can break or shatter. You might think that the best solution is to throw the whole scanner away and replace it, but there is something that you can do to fix the glass.

Step 1: Remove the Glass

You will first need to remove the shattered glass. This may be easy to remove using some safety gloves, but you may also need a hammer to break it into acceptable lumps. Once all of the broken pieces are removed, unscrew the sides of the scanner, and lift out the frame of the glass.

Step 2: Insert New Glass

You should then take your piece of new glass, and place it into the frame. It is much easier if you have had it cut down to size by the glassmaker. You may also choose to get specially fitted glass which cannot be cut once it has been fired. When you have the right fit, screw the frame together.

Step 3: Refit the Frame

Once the glass is in place, refit the frame into the scanner, and screw into position. Tighten the bolts, and test the scanner to make sure that it is running correctly.
