    I scan postage stamps and this little buddy has completed
    around 80,000 at a rough guess.

    Recently, moire marks have been appearing across the odd image,
    I thought the de screen may have been turned off by little enquiring
    fingers,
    I have "re set" all defaults, now scanned images at 600dpi are all hazy
    and lack definition.

    Any suggestions of what may have happened? or is it just tired out
    and needs replacing.

    Whilst on the subject, would like to archive pre-war stamp magazines
    they consist of approx 60, A4 pages, double if I take out the staples.
    Black and white.
    May I solicit some recommendations of a medium priced ADF duplex scanner
    would $500 AUD cover it?

    Thanks.
