cannon 8800f

reduced screen shotscreenshot.pngHello, this is my first message so hope it all goes well.

Before I retired I was a semi-profesional freelance photograher.

In those days it was film only and I acumulated quite a Large stock.

To ensure these photo's did not deteriorate even though they were Kodachrome

I started to digitize them with a scanner, a cannon 8800f in any spare time I had.

lately the scanner has been playing up when in preview it leaves black bars on

the edges of the scanned pic's. I have noticed that this problem occurs more often

with long use time or when the ambient temp is high.

Has anyone else had this problem with their scanner and did they find a cure?
