epson 'perfection 4990 photo' opened it up - cleaned *both* sides

dave

now I've done it, took a deep breath and opened up both sides of the
case, dismantled it some, cleaned both sides of both glasses: the upper
lid glass, *and* the lower 'base' unit glass too. the lower part was
-very- difficult to figure out how to open, but I did it...

all illustrated and documented online, in 20 nice clear 800 x 600 images

http://machines.pandela.net/epson_perfection_4990_photo_scanner_dismantling/

by the way, I'm still looking for epson 4990 parts, used, broken, or
maybe even new. I need

= the 35mm filmstrips holder (reportedly epson part number 631204), and

= the 35mm 'mounted slides' holder (reportedly epson number 81105), and

= the white vinyl over foam thing that goes inside the upper lid, aka
"reflective document mat", part number unknown.

these things would be nice to procure my friends. give me a holler, or
shoot me an e-mail,

many thanks :)

Dave try one to these places. They are in the business of supplying parts
for some Epson printers and maybe scanners.

Check the Epson site to find a repair facility. You can get parts at
any authorized Epson repair facility. For some reason Epson doesn't
sell their film holders directly and they only sell them as a pack as
a spare part.
