Hi Sara,
The problem may not be with Leica's Slide Writer but with your Surgipath
slides.  We too have been experiencing issues with our slides which are
Surgipath's. Our printer is the Sakura Slide Writer.  We have been told
here that Surgipath has changed the formalation/manufacturing  of the
white paint that these slides are "painted" with.  Surgipath "Europe"
has apparently made some changes and the problem is being corrected.
Unfortunately, right now it's always a ???when we receive a new batch of
slides from our Stores area. Our Surgipath Rep and Surgipath Canada have
been very good about replacing the faulty slides but it has been a
challenge in the midst of our day to day pressures. I would speak with
your Surgipath Rep about this issue
Hope this information is helpful to you.
