We have had this problem many times. It seems that the culprit is H2O in the 
Xylene in the staining row or the Xylene that is used before coverslipping. 
Our solution is more frequent xylene changes. Hope this helps you.

Subject: [Histonet] Sakura Tape coverslipper Help

I am having a problem with the tape leaving brownish dry spots on harder 
tissues and even some smaller skin tags. We are using plenty of xylene on 
each slide. Has anyone seen this Problem using the tape?  I am wondering if 
our xylene is the problem.  The xylene we are using is good quality, but it 
is called XYLENES with an "S" on the end.  The coverslipper is brand new and 
functions great.  I just can't figure out the dry spots in the tissue. Plase 
Help !
