    Hi all - I have an Epson Perfection V850 Pro and after scanning heaps of photos I've found that there are a few very minor scratches forming on parts of the scan bed. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on how to fix this?

    Thanks all - Michael

    Pics can help.

    Are you scanning negs right on the glass, using holders, scanning mounted slides etc etc.

    Is it showing up in the scans at all? One method would be wiping down with isopropyl alcohol between sessions, using a dust cover and making sure all materials placed on the scanning bed are clean before placing down.
