If the white strip is attached to the scanner lid (rather than the glass itself) then I guess I don't understand with or agree with Phil's statement above. This is the case for the low-end flatbed scanners that I've had apart. If the white strip is attached to the glass, then there may still be some klugey options... 1. If the old white strip is self-adhesive, it might be possible to transfer it to the new glass, but it would have to be located precisely on the new sheet, and without smudging the white strip. 2. Maybe find a piece of very white tape, or some other very white, very uniform sheet which could substitute for the old white strip. Again, it would have to be located very carefully. Remember that Charlie said this wasn't a high-end scanner. rafe b. - Turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short.
