Remove the exposed screw that was covered by the power button panel. Do not try and torque the screw from an angle. This will ruin the screw's head, and make it even more difficult to remove the screw. Only remove it as already described.

  • This screw is placed awkwardly. We found holding a T9 bit in a pair of needle nose pliers gave us enough leverage to pull it up.

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.
