The scanner fails to see/detect the end of the strip. You would
experience the same problem if you tried to feed it e.g. a 36-frame
strip - that's how I know ;-)

No, I don't know how it senses the end of the strip; my guess is some
kind of simple electronics connected to the scan sensor array. Maybe you
have a bit of dust on the sensor?
