Trying to convert slides to digital images

Images scan like a "static" ish old television??? I can see part of the image, but it never comes in clear AT all...

    I have exactly the same problem. It's been happening for the past few months on and off, but now it's constant when I try to scan 120 film. 


    The scanner makes a different noise, when the static/noisy image comes up and the light moves a lot more slowly. 


    I have found the only thing that works is scanning a different negative - it doesn't like certain images weirdly.

To scan a slide is difficult, and it is alomst impossible to get a clear image. since slide needs intense light to show a clean image. the scaners' light bar just not enough light to reflect back to get a clean image.
you may get the same result if you take them to a professional for conversion.
I don't have any suggestion at this time.


any one???

I've read but not tried it, that you must cut out a piece of cardboard the same size as your scanning area. Put one slide in the middle of the cardboard and trace. cut out the piece of cardboard that you traced. Place the cardboard on your scanning area and place slides one by one in the hole that you've cut. Take a flourescent torche or light and hold it directly behind the slide, scan now. Apparently this works.
Trys and let me know

Rainbow static on Plasma Tv


The color static, if we are talking about the same thing, is usually a digital signal interference. Check cables, and digital converter if used.

Is this TV digital


This is not a digital TV. This TV has only an NTSC (analog) tuner. A converter will be needed to tune digital broadcast TV stations, your CATV or satellite company supplies a converter to allow this set to display programs.

The display is limited to "480P" resolution, called "Enhanced Definition", which is a step up from the traditional NTSC standard of "480i" resolution or "Standard Definition". ("P is "progressive scan" and "i" is "interlaced scan"). Progressive scan provides a better picture quality when compared to interlaced scan images. High Definition or "HD" is a signal that contains data that allows display of images with 720P, 1080i and 1080P resolutions (the larger numbers indicate more information, or higher picture quality). Your TV will receive all signals, SD, ED and HD, but will down convert to ED. Signals can be brought into the set via 2 composite-video connections, 1 each component- and S-video, an RF antenna/cable-box/VCR input, and a 15-pin D-Sub analog RGB input. More info can be found here.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thank you.

Alignment is not the issue with my printer... i keep getting a shadow behind my letters and images I print, but not on typed documents... only scanned ones or copied and pasted images into word... so...


The shadows are common from scanned images. You might want to hold the book you are trying to scan in a better angle so that the scanner can read it more clearly. Then your scans won't have that many shadows.

Cannon 4400F Scanner


I had the same problem with about 1 out of every 16 slides when I first got the scanner. The only way I found around it was to rearrange the slides and try again. I started scanning through the ScanGear software instead of Canon Toolbox, and haven't had that problem since. I've scanned about 6,000 slides and negatives so far.

Lines and broken digitized images on the viewing screen

Listen folks, these tv.s do not operate as the old tv. The tv breaks down, you simply change the board you know that has the problem only. You can solve the problem yourself if you want, but you have to know how to diagnose a problem in the new tv. First, you have a power supply board, main digital board, inverter board, and converter board. In your case you need to change the main input digital board. You can e-mail me at Stevebuy31@hotmail.com

Adobe interface issues


We have also seen that Adobe Acrobat doesn't produce very clear scans (with a range of scanners). Adobe gives very good pdf file size but it downsamples images.
