    Has anyone had a Canon Canoscan (or for that matter any other flatbed film scanner) suddenly turn crap? For no reason I can see, the top light (the one for the film) on mine has now become unbelievably slow and occasionally sounds like it's in pain. It still scans - if I'm prepared to wait 10 mins for a single 35mm negative.

    Naturally, it's just out of warranty. I should point out that I previously had a problem, took it into Canon service and was told there was no problem. There was a problem, but it was just about small enough that I ignored it. But oh how happy with Canon I am now...
