Spares for Epson 1640SU Scanner

Discussion in 'Scanners' started by David Littlewood, Nov 8, 2003.

  1. My daughter has an Epson 1640SU with film adapter, which she uses for
    film scanning. Unfortunately, she has mislaid the 35mm film holder for
    this. Does anyone know where we can get hold of a replacement
    (preferably in the UK)? Or has anyone been in a similar situation and
    found a workaround?

    Otherwise, I can imagine what will happen - dad will end up forking out
    for a new scanner. Still, she does good work!

    Have you contacted Epson? They might be able to provide a replacement part.

    Failing that, flatbed scanners are generally reputed to have reasonably large
    depth-of-field. So she may be able to lay the film right on the flatbed glass,
    or place a piece in a conventional plastic slide mount. Or adapt a negative
    carrier from an film enlarger.

    Good luck. ...pt
