| The dust mote strikes again
| You could call this situation "the looping cycle"
| this happens because there is a dust particle sitting on the
| 'registration' sensor, the one which sets the carrier into the 'start'
| position...
| since it is blinded by the dust spek, it keeps the carrier moving back
| and forth, for as long as it will take to find the 'registration'
| indicator on the film carrier... which might be eternity time...
| blowing air into the left channel located into the tunnel should
| dislodge the disruptive dust speck... the sensor 'sits' in this area...
| also a good precaution, is to blow air onto the carrier, specially the
| under channel on the left side...to remove any dust which might then
| finds its way on this sensor...
| the only thing, keep the air can upright while using it, other wise...
| funny how a dust mote can blind a sensor searching for a unique marking,
| into an 'eternal' movement, but this kind of situations happens all the
| time, around us....
