Re: filmscanners: ScanWit Yellow stain

Further to Art's comprehensive troubleshooting tips..

I hope I am wrong, but I have a sneaking suspicion that it's the lamp - & 
therefore will be expensive to fix..
Best of luck - I presume you have spoken/pleaded with Honda Lo?
(Tell him that the good karma you would give out, from receiving a 
replacement unit outside warranty, might bring MANY sales....)


Anyway, if you are unable to get it sorted..., may I also offer a quick, 
totally un-thought-out solution?
Note that this is coming from a non-professional source, so is probably way 
off target..

If the stain is consistent, could you not scan a blank frame to get a 
'profile' of it, then reverse that, maybe blur it a bit, and apply it to 
your image in Photoshop/whatever?  Not a nice addition to your workflow 
(and ask someone *else* how to do it quickly!), but once you got the hang 
of it..
