    I have an epson perfection 1660 scanner that was giving a 'badly scrambled'
    images. It looked kind of like a tv picture with horizontal sync lost.

    I took it apart and re-seated all the 'flexable cables' at each end and it
    fixed it.

    please pardon my infinite ignorance, the set-of-things-I-do-not-know is an
    infinite set.

    Thus spake bz:
    Tried that. I even took out the loooong flex cable that follows the
    bulb/camera carriage and ohm'd it out. It was OK. Still, no joy.

    It's binned.
