Our 3212 SM machine is printing negative scans with the image squashed. 4x6 vertical is printed 6x4 horizontally with the picture squashed to fit. We had a light source failure and replaced  a power supply. Fixed the light source problem but created a different problem.

Pictures from digital files are fine. Only negative scans are squashed.

These are mechanical problems — the teeth on the toothed pulley of the driving motor in the AFC have been erased. Increasing the belt tension can help. Adjusting the belt tension is done by shifting the drive motor.

Distortion from the film carrier would be from left to right, this distortion appears to be from top to bottom, assuming this is 35mm film. So this issue can't be caused by a film carrier advance problem unless it is half frame or from 120 6x4.5 film.

For verification, you need to scan negatives on AFC135. If there are no problems there, then the reason is in the mechanics of AFC120.

The solution: New used s2 scanner. Once balanced, focused and what ever else needed to be done and I am back in business. HOWEVER...

The paper feed on the all the paper sizes feeds an extra 1/8" on the first picture's trailing edge. Where would I find the adjustment to solve this problem.
