Hi Folks -

OK, so I bought a refurbished scanner (Epson V550 - $114 off of Amazon). Now, yes, it was a refurb, but I figured that it was...you know...fixed. *Got it out of the box, loaded up the software, hooked everything up, popped in a 120 negative and...nothing. Powered up, but it won’t talk to the computer. To double check, I even hooked up my work computer as well - nada. Now, I get to box it up and send it back. Not a major thing, but kind of a pain in the balls...

*Before I set it up, I had to do some cleaning because I have this condition where if I see a horizontal surface, I gotta put shit on it. That took half an hour or so...but at least it’s clean, now...
