[filmscanners] Re: Multi-coloured lines in images...
Maybe it is of 0 (zero) interest to anyone , but my HP 6200c ... a very
expensive unit finally decided to DIE ! ... and this just after 3 years from
the EXPENSIVE purchase and VERY FEW scans performed .
I have brought the unit to repair centre (no way HP will receive the unit !
... not even if I would have carried at their central premises here in Italy
!) and the final sentence is ... not repairable , frow it in the GARBAGE !
... (and actually the TRASH is the PROPER PLACE for THIS HP STUFF !) ...
I have been ripped following the ads of HP and is reputation (quite amazing
how this kind of brand can have such a reputation with stuff like this sold
in the marketplace) ... the scan was NEVER able to scan a slide despite the
specifications ... then I discovered the feature being a simple MIRROR
!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ... such a cheat !
the installation always being TRICKY under W98 and almost impossible in the
the operations always randomly working / crashing .... and the past 6 months
with 2 big brown/multicolor bands on the scans ...
I will never buy an HP product any more and I strongly suggest everybody to
look for other brands more serious , with better and more reliable products
, LAST BUT NOT LEAST with a BETTER CUSTOMER CARE OVERALL !
