Question about Canon CanoScan 8400F Film Scanner
IS THERE A LIGHT SOURCE INSIDE OF THE LID OF THIS SCANNER? ALTHOUGH THE FAU CABLE IS PLUGGED IN I SEE NO LIGHT FROM THE LID TO BACKLIGHT SLIDES IN THE SCANNER .
Please see my other postings (wireguy) regarding this same problem. It's caused by a faulty FAU cable.

Thanks Wireguy, I guess this confirms what the Canon agent and Canon Australia told me, but I just hoped some-one had outwitted them and fixed this problem. So yes, its off to the scanner shop or maybe I'll get lucky and someone will sell one on Ebay. Thanks for your advice. Cheers, Ross

If you open the top..you see where the whiteis on the top of the lid. If it is pointing straight up and down, at the top of the lid there is a black tab to allow you to remove the white backing. That is used just for scanning regular items like documents and photos. To scan the film or slides this must be removed. Once it is you will see the lighting that is used for the film. Hope this helps
