Our lab purchased a FluorImager SI last year.  We have had three 
service calls so far to repair problems similar to the one you
describe.  We are very concerned about the reliability of this
expensive instrument.  MD's response is always prompt and efficient
but the service calls are starting to get expensive and the downtime
is affecting our work.
