Other way to make your Minolta MS6000 Microfilm work if you have idea to throw it away….

My MS6000 has problem with C2 error code as a result of a bad sensor, I guess. But I am unable to find this sensor part to replace !  No way !
MS6000 Microfilm scanner  is  an obsolete machine. It is made for Library only and it is a vendor machine ! If it has problem , the best way is throw it away since you are unable to find its part (s).

So how you solve this problem to make it back to work ?
