Question about Heidelberg Linoscan 1450 Flatbed Scanner
Stuartrome, Noggin gave you some very good suggestions on how to solve your problem. Allow me to add my opinion. Although Heidelberg offers very good scanners, I think over the years the quality of their customer service has dropped. It really depends upon which customer is spends more money. (fact of life) I think for the quality of the final "product" you are trying to achieve, it would be best to invest in another more current model. I would stay away from discontinued models or those close to "end of life" cycles even though they are cheaper. This link gives you some reviews HP, Epson, Microteck, not a lot, but at least a start for selecting the model that meets your needs. These are "high end scanners". http://www.imaging-resource.com/SCAN1.HTM I hope this answer helps to solve your problem. Also they may be several buyers out there who might need your older machine for parts or even for personal use. Check that out to minimize your costs.

Check this link for a bit of info about the scanner. http://www.hwkb.com/Uwe/Forum.aspx/scanner/973/Heidelberg-Linoscan-1450-sparepart-and-driver-for-Windows I agree: Heidelberg no longer support the model so you will have a lot of trouble finding spares - I searched a lot and the only place you can find these now seems to be e-bay. I would be tempted to say get a new scanner, but it is just possible that replacing the lamp if you could get one or cleaning the inside may help, but a scanner usually only has a few years life in it. Just possible the lamp is standard, if you can get to it and get a part number from it, perhaps we could find one online. Hope this helps :)
