It sounds like you're having much the same problem with the LS-2000 that
I've just discovered, with light areas on the neg flaring onto the
surroundings. It shows up on slides too, white leaks onto black.

I was worried it might be mis-aligned optics, from transporting the scanner
(which I borrow some weekends) without it's locking screws in place.

Please tell me you haven't moved yours recently. Because then it must be
dust on the lens, which means it's not my fault! And probably easier to fix.
Anyone know how to clean a scanner's lens?

My example: (as one line!)
