> I'm going to figure out if i can clean mine or > if i have to send it to N.Y. I have cleaned the mirror and lens on mine many times with no trouble at all. And removing the dust makes a huge difference in the quality of scans. I generally brush any dust off very gently with a Q-tip from the mirror; the lens rarely collects much dust, but the mirror rapidly becomes thick with it. On rare occasions, I've moistened the Q-tip with a bit of Kodak lens cleaner as well, but that usually isn't necessary.
