Hello,
Expert:  ElectronicsPete replied 8 months ago.
There may be some grit on the scanning head - try cleaning it with a cloth and lightly grease the rails.

Hi, just checking in on your question. How did things work out for you?
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
It was definitely not grit. Could it be the scanner motor?
Expert:  ElectronicsPete replied 7 months ago.
Yes, the noise could also be coming from the scanner motor - try putting your ear close to it when it is in motion and let me know if it sounds louder...
