I hate to say it this way, but that is just SO pathetic! From what I
understand, fixing it would require a firmware modification to both
calibrate three lines instead of one, and then to use three calibration
lines instead of one. Having written a LOT of embedded firmware, and
designed a few scanners, I just can't imagine what their problem is. My
only guess is there is something else that prohibits them from fixing
it...what, I don't know... Did they happen to mention WHY they won't fix
