precision does not repair scanners, i just called them, so your helo was of no use
thanks for trying
not sure this was worth $30
new link is to Precision camera as well
Second link is to a different company in Texas. It's called precision camera and video. It's been a little while since I've worked with them, but the guy that I dealt with's name is Dave. The first link I sent you is for a different company with the same name in Conneticut.
i contaced both links, neither work on scanners. second link directed me to a third company, also in Texas, but they cannot help either.
in the meantime, i contacted Nikon parts directly, who poked around and discovered there was a new part number fotrthe PS and they do have them in stock, so now i get to take the scanner back to Nikon.
