    Imacon Flextight II problem...

    Hi

    I just bought a mildy used Imacon Flextight II, and it has been working
    flawlessly for 30+ scans, but all of sudden the upper lamp/tube died. Of course I though it was just burned out, so I replaced it with a new one, but to my greatest fear, it still does not work, so PLEASE help, I'm in the middle of scanning for a big exibition so this comes at a real bad time...(and NO i can not afford doing all this scanning at a lab) ...all help will be widely appreciated...

    What I find strange is that, the scanner works without the lamp/tube (but scans do not look good) But there is no message or light blinking saying anything is wrong. So I tried to scan just using a LED flashlight, and this actually made the scans, way better...of course this is not the solution, but it leads me to think (if this is a motherboard problem) that I actually could exchange the whole lamp/tube with it's holder and everything (and yes it's own power source) but I hate the idea of "hacking" my Imacon scanner....
