I don't think this strip byte count is large at all. With the image dimensions you have quoted, it indicates a density of about 4.4 pixels per byte. As you give no indication of the number of colors of the image, compression used, etc. it is hard to make a guess. > Anyway, when I run this image through my parser that > calls the API TIFFReadRGBAStrip(), it SOMETIMES > outputs an all-black image.

When a program gives different results for different runs, it is almost always due to variables that are used before being initialized, so they contain just whatever their corresponding memory positions contained when they were allocated. Make sure that you correctly initialize any variables (both scalars and arrays) before using them.
