Home hardware experts I need advise!

Bought this just over a year ago - forget where. I am certain its out of warranty. Used maybe 10 times. Cannon CanoScan 8400F

while scanning a doc today, the made weird noise and got stuck. I took it apart and the plastic gears are broken.

Where do I get replacement for the gear ?? Thanks

suggest you take it to a local r/c hobby shop. they should have a replacement gear that would fit.

Don't know if they'll sell to the general public, but try Precision Roller (http://www.precisionroller.com/).

If they have the part, but won't sell to you, PM me and I'll run it through my account.

The only other place I can think of is World of Fax (www.worldoffax.com).

I'll keep my ears open, though.
