I have a Prima scan colorado 2600 and recently for some reason the images are coming out dark? Any ideas

Have you checked to make sure the glass plate is clean? also the underneath side of the glass, make sure there is not a bloom on it.

Check manual for calibration of scanner, and also try adjusting brightness/contrast from scanner software.

If non of this helps, how old is the scanner? maybe the lamp is loosing it's brightness.

Try this excellent site for cleaning/maintaining, and repair of scanners. The link was provided last week by one of the forum users, unfortunately, I can't remember who. click here
