Did it ever work?
If not, why not return them under warranty?
I have 2 Microtek X6 Scanners, a SCSI and a parallell port Model, I also have the 35mm Negative Light Lid as well as the Large format Light lid.
The problem that I have is that the Scanners both work fine and work with the 35mm Light attached, but do not work with the Large format Light lid.
Before you say that the lid is U/S, I have had this lid checked by a reputable electrician and it is OK.
The Problem: Whilst Scanning large format Negatives the Light lid will activte as if to scan, IE the light comes on then the platter moves but as soon as it reaches the negative it shuts itself down, sometimes with an error code, but most times not, I have written to Microtek in Holland to no avail. any help most appreciated.
