Question about Canon CanoScan 8400F Film Scanner
You will most likely find that the FAU (what the hell is FAU?!) cable that connects the lift-up lid to the lower part of the scanner has at least one of the eight wires within it fractured. This cable was made far too rigid to cope with the multiple number of times that you will be opening and closing the lid and it's a poor do from Canon that they allowed this to get through to production. I tried to obtain a replacement cable from the UK Canon service agents but was told, as expected, that it couldn't supply it. If you're a dab hand with small wires and a soldering iron, it's quite possible to make a repair and save a bit more of the world's resources from going in the dustbin and then buying another equally poorly made, expensive piece of ****, from China.
