Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
I noticed that you recommended oil for the scanning lamp track, but didn't say what kind. I rarely use my scanner, so it has had a hard time starting up lately. I cleaned the track by hand and there was a little black residue. I find that the more I use it, the better it works. Would you recommend WD-40 or sewing machine oil or silicone lubricant or graphite lubricant or what?
I had the same problem with my Epson v200 scanner. I took it apart and rubbed - sparingly! - a little white grease in its track. It works fine now, but I have not used it much since I greased it. A tube of white grease should be about $3 in an auto parts store.
