Epson Perfection 2480 scanner fault

  bluetwo 09:58 08 Jun 2017

strong textI inadvertently turned my Epson Perfection 2480 over whilst moving it to a worktop. I was unaware at the time that it should not be turned over unless it has been locked. I should have studied the instruction. The net result is that it works perfectly as an 4 scanner but slides and 35mm film just turn out as a black screen. I would like to have it fixed ut the local Epson printer repair technician said he doesn't do scannes. Can anyone tell me where (economically) I can get it fixed. Thanks to all.

If you do a search in this forum you will find that this exact same problem has occurred a couple of times before. Unfortunately an answer was never found. It does seem that if you turn this scanner over without the lock on then you cause an irreparable fault in the slide scanner section.
