Took it apart and cleaned it, working great now.
Fantastic. I have noticed the haze on the interior surface of the glass on my Canon 8800F, and could not figure out how to open the case to clean the glass. I just found online the service manual, and hope to open the case in following the illustrations (unfortunately no textual descriptions to accompany the illustrations!)
i just pulled out the service manual, and in spite of poor descriptions to accompany the drawings, I managed to get the glass cover off and the haze on the underside of the glass cleaned off, and things screwed back together, all in maybe 20 minutes. If I had to do it again, it would certainly be a faster process, since I know know how the parts interlock together...only 4 screws to remove. It certainly helped to watch a YouTube on the 8600F, showing where 2 of the 4 screws were located!
