Hi, I was scanning 6 views strips, B&W 16 bits 4000ppi, with the multiple scanning device, everything was fine when I noticed a dark line on all the photos of the last stripe at the same location. See photo A. No such line on the previous stripes scanned during the same session. Photo B shows a magnification, the dark line appears to contain some information. No visible line on the stripes. When I did the scan again, but this time with the stripe upside down, the line was still there, at the same location of the scan (lower side, i.e. this time superimposed on the sky). When I switched off the machine for 20', and scanned back the stripes, the line had disappeared. previously, the scanner had been working for about 1 hour, while a total of 4 stripes had been scanned with the same conditions. I have never seen this phenomenon since I bought this machine in ~2007, and I feel quite nervous since here in France Nikon is not servicing it any more. Is this just an insignificant blip, or the beginning of the end? Thank you in advance for your comments.
