Question about Braun MULTIMAG SlideScan 4000
Hi all, got a bit of a wierd one. I'm currently over half way through a run of 6,000 slides, and the slidescan has started to place black bands on the slides in random positions and random thickness. It appears to not be scanner random areas of the slides. I've installed it on several machines with the same results so I know it must be the scanner.
Just wondering if anyone has had this problem before and of course if there was any work around for this.
Thanks in advance !
The problem is likely to be a failure of the ribbon cable between the scanning head PCB and the mother board. This is a 28 pin cable, the cable run is poor, the type of cable is IMHO not the best for this application and is too short. The continuous flexing of this cable as the the scanner scans results in fractures of the copper. Replacement of the cable is required.

Normally dark lines are a speck of dirt sticking on to the glass and when scanned continuously, it appears as a line. Clean the glass thoroughly. Ensure the slides are dust free. If the lines are appearing in different locations, it means the dust gets removed while scanning. Line in the same place could be because of glass is scratched. The above is common with roller scanners.
For fat bed scanners, there will be no scratch on the glass. It must be from the slides/documents
