    Default scanner problems - need advice

    I bought some of the 20K scanners (with DMX board) on ebay and the galvos shipped unmounted to the block.

    What's the correct procedure for mounting/aligning them? Can you rotate them in the block when they are in powered on?

    Also they seem much noiser than the DT40s I own - is this normal?

    [At one point I could swear I saw smoke coming out of the 'X']

    I've contacted the seller, but not heard back from him yet - I was wondering what the best course of action is...?

    ---------------------

    Update:

    The X galvo has settled down a bit - it's still 'singing' but not as loud. Images appear to have some kind of oscillation in X as you can see from the figure 8 display.

    Y looks fine. X is hosed. Did you buy them new or used? I wouldn't fool around with them unless they are out of warranty and you can't return them. Maybe they tuning is out of whack.
