Re: filmscanners: Microtek ArtixScan 4000T - fault
I purchased my 4000t about 18 months ago. After about 6 months it
started to make a grinding noise and finally refused to accept a
slide or negative. It was returned; the invoice stated"replacement of
motherboard " and it has worked better (and faster)-touch wood- than
when new since its repair. SEND IT BACK ASAP.
