If this scanner is like most there are relatively few moving parts ­ a
scanner head, two rails, a stepper motor and a belt/geartrain. Iąd try small
dabs of grease on the rails on which the head slides and see if that does
it. A tiny bit more on the gear shafts might be in order. My guess is the
rails are dry and the head is squealing as it moves along.
