[filmscanners] Re: Polaroid SS4000 - Delay in calibrating scanner...

I'm unfamiliar with this problem, but I suspect your neg film carrier
has developed a problem.  Make sure the track on the bottom is clean or
grim and grease.  If you have not been using the little brush (which
either should have come with the scanner new or should have been offered
to you ages ago) it is also possible enough dust and such has gotten
over the sensor to cause a problem that the brush can't fix now.  But
that seems unlikely because I believe the sensor is the same for both
film carriers.

That leads me to think that perhaps some type of switch that is actuated
when you change carriers may be slow or damaged.

Before sending it in for repair which can be costly if out of warranty,
try a new film carrier or borrow someone else's (maybe your dealer?) to try.
