Question about Pacific Image PrimeFilm 1800 Film Scanner
I have had this PF 1800 silver slide scanner for a few years--it was working fine when I used it about 2 weeks ago. Today it pre scans/scans a slide--the mechanism is moving over the slide--but the resulting image in a completely white box. I reset all of the settings and then I dumped and reloaded the software but that didn't solve the problem. When I look inside I can see the low purple light so I think the bulb is still working. I took the lid off the scanner and blew it off with air. Then I put it back together and ran it--with the front portion of the cover up. I could see that the scanning mechanism was moving over the slide but the resulting image remains blank. What else might I try?

the scanner assembly is getting blocked somewhere internally due to dust collected in the assebly.or it can be due to any of the wire internally gone loose or cut slightly so this problem.

To open the Canoscan 8600 to clean the inside of the glass: Gently pry off the silver "c-shaped" trim piece on the front of the scanner. Slide the silver trim pieces on each side of the scanner forward and remove them. Gently pry off the remaining black trim piece on the front of the unit. This exposes 3 phillips head screws at the front of the scanner. Remove them. Pull straight up on the rear lid of scanner (where the 2 hinges are) to remove the top. This exposes 2 screws at the bottoms of the wells that secure the hinges. Remove them. Now the top is held by only 2 clips - 1 on each side. Pull up gently on the left side of the panel, front and back, and slide the panel back towards the rear. That should free the clip. Repeat for the right side. Take it easy, and you won't break anything.
