Re: filmscanners: Used Nikon LS-20 for sale

They claimed that they have cleaned it, and that it was working properly
AFTER their action. I could not make out any difference in the results
before and after, judging from test scans.

Simple: at the time I had it serviced, I had not intended to sell it,
because I had hoped that the service would remedy the problem. I've had had
an extended discussion with Nikon's service agant about the whole affair,
but they were uncooperative. After that, I didn't pursue the matter further
because I considered it a waste of time, nerves, and money.

Thanks,

Karsten
