Any calibration to perform on v700 scanner - Epson Perfection V700 PHOTO Flatbed Scanner

    Hi FixYa Team,
    Although both locking mechanism on the V700 scanner are unlocked, the V700 is presently making a loud grinding/clicking/clashing noise during the scans of negatives.
    No problem or noise in scanning photo, it is just the top carriage scanner for negatives that is starting this noise once crossing 2.3" of the scanning area in the preview of the professional mode.
    Do you think I am facing a mechanical problem, and I am wondering if any alignment or calibration can be done, or any other idea on what to do beside returning to Epson. Actually I have made two experiment:
    1) doing a preview scan and let it go to the end with all the noise and than selecting an area of scan W-8" and H=2.3" and then scanning effectively - no noise during this short scan as it did not cross the area line of (H=2.3")
    2) repeating 1) for the preview scan but pulling out the connector of the top cover of the scanner connecting to the base. The preview will take time but will scan with no noise as the Top part is not activated although the preview is set for negatives.
    Hoping that you will be able to help and suggest, thank you

You have to use the "FILM AREA GUIDE" included with the scanner. This black plastic guide leaves a small area at the top of the glass open so that the scanner can calibrate itself at the start of each scan. Use the guide or leave at least 8mm between the top of your film and the top of the scanner glass.

Does the soft ware in the V700 support early colour negative material ? I can find Ilford HP5 but not Ilfocolour !

There isn't a specific template for that film, but you can try out with generic settings and see how it goes. I rarely use the specific film settings from scanner software, and always prefer to adjust them to each roll I scan. Good luck with that! :)

Yes the scanner is compatible with a downloaded driver from epson. however some of the supplied third party software may not be. Also with MACS the push button scan may not work.

When I scan colour slides the image gets cropped

Uncheck the option that says "Thumbnail" and draw individual marquees for the area on the slide you want to scan. Not very elegant but it works.
