Can't scan slides with Heidelberg Linoscan 2200

In the sofware-menu (Linocolor Elite 6.0.9) i can switch between normal scans for photos and scans for slides or negative patterns. This setting I can change on a button at the upper left side on the menu.

So far so easy ...
But no matter which setting I select, I never get a scan from my slides. I'ts always a scan like for a normal photo.

Is it a malfunction in my scanner, could the light needed for such kind of scan be broken, or am I doing something wrong?

Check this link for a bit of info about the scanner. I agree: Heidelberg no longer support the model so you will have a lot of trouble finding spares - I searched a lot and the only place you can find these now seems to be e-bay. I would be tempted to say get a new scanner, but it is just possible that replacing the lamp if you could get one or cleaning the inside may help, but a scanner usually only has a few years life in it. Just possible the lamp is standard, if you can get to it and get a part number from it, perhaps we could find one online. Hope this helps :)

Years ago, upon my suggestion, the company I work for purchased a Linoscan 2200 with the Newcolor 5000 software and I am in need of some updated software. I used the scanner and software on the same...

I am running Newcolor 5000 on an XP box. There are some issues but it does run fine. I just ignore the "out of memory" messages that pop up and keep scanning. Upon booting, the device manager will try to install the scanner (that needs to be on to be recognized). It will need to be cancelled seven times. This happens every boot, not ideal but it's how I do it. For a while I was dual booting to W2K but now just tolerate the eccentricities of Newcolor.

Will a Linotype Hell Ultra 2 Saphir run on a pC?

Yes. Just got mine running on Windows ME. Problem is getting the SCSI set up. Once you get that done, I used Vuescan ( and it works. Slow, but functional. I have yet to get scans of the full scanner screen (10 x 14 inches). But 8 x 10 is working fine.

All my scans come out black

I don't have the same scanner but the same problem and I unplug the scanner from the back of it and waited 1 minute and plugged it back in and it worked. It just might need to rebut itself.

Upgraded to MAC OS X; is there a compatible driver?

This scanner was released back in the late 90's, before Os X was released. Heidelberg discontinued support of all but their high end Nexscan scanners. So unfortunately, newer drivers were never made for this product.
