Lide 600F - problem scanning negatives


I am using a Canoscan Lide 600F with Windows, used it for years, excellent results.  I decided to scan some old colour negatives, the first go worked and I was delighted.  Next day, using precisely the same settings, it produced an error message.  I detached the film adapter, did an ordinary pdf, re-attached the film adapter (same settings as before) and once more it worked ok.  I changed the film strip and then got the error message once again.  I cannot see why this should work sometimes and not others and wonder if anyone has a solution.  The error message is "The film could not be detected. Please check if the Select Source is correct, or confirm the film is set correctly and execute preview".
