Art, Where and how did you find someone who was able to clean off the plasticizer haze without getting more dirt on the glass than was there previously? The Epson Authorized tech that worked on my new scanner made a mild dust problem into a bad dust-and-Windex-smear problem. Please let me/us know who and where the competent people you have used are, for future reference. Thanks (and sorry for being so obsessive on this topic; I'm waiting to receive yet another Epson 2450 as I write). - David = = = Original message = = = David J.

I've had all of my flatbeds open to clean plasticizer haze, usually when new or a few weeks old. Since then, the build up is very slow. That makes some sense, since the scanners are usually exposed to the worst conditions during shipment from the orient, and because the most plasticizer is evaporating off of the plastic early in the plastic's life.
