Scanner problem

  Sapins 13:20 13 Nov 2003

Hi All,

Sod's law has struck!

I have just this week bought a two port usb 1.0 card so that I can plug in my scanner and a broadband modem to the computer and not use a usb hub, would you believe it my scanner has packed up two months out of warranty. The Epson recommended repairer in the UK will charge £28 for a main board, £30 for labour and another £30 to post it back to france + my postage to the UK. No contest, buy another scanner.

Now that I will probably be buying a new scanner I will go for a usb 2.0 model, but, before I do that can anyone tell me if I can replace the scanners main board myself or should I just throw it away? It really pains me to just chuck something in the bin, especially when it looks so new!!

Any help greatly appreciated,
