    Great idea! I have just stated to play around with 555 IC (actually 556 but at the moment I'm only using one of the 555 halves).

    I'll post as soon as I have a new scan image, but at the moment I have a lot to do at work so things a progressing slowly. I managed to remove the lens array and lighting though.

    Keep all the good ideas coming.

    Thanks!

    Here you can see the first sample image of the IRIScan back. I hope I can improve on this.

    I just built a solder free test setup with flashing IR LED. I can adjust the frequency with the potentiometer. If I can figure out how to improve the image, it could be worth trying to get a more permanent setup with a transistor instead of IR LED, and using the batteries in the scanner.

    I need to try different combinations of IR LED frequency and camera turning speed. Also try with "high" or "low" resolution with color mode or black and white mode.

    I have been building/using scanner cameras for a long time. There is a trick to make the work almos as a digital camera. Right now I have a 9x12 and 2 5x7 and a brownie 4x5 with scanners.
