Question about Plustek OpticFilm 7200i Film Scanner

Open Question

Plustek OF 7200i: Scanning assembly can move one way only.

When I try to run the unit without case it appears the scanning assembly will make a valid pass (rear-to-front) only if previously moved back manually (it's driven by a single motor via a worm screw). So it's either the motor is not engaging in reverse when it should or the circuitry misdetects the assembly's position thinking it's in the rear when in fact it's not.

SOURCE: negatives scan as negatives and not as pictures with the plustek 7300

In the Twain driver for your intellscan, there should be a selection for the type of scan. It should be set to "black & White Negative" or "Color Negative". The program you use to edit the scanned file should be able to change it to a positive if the scanned result is still negative. Programs such as Photoshop, Paint shop Pro etc can use Twain to have the scanner scan directly into them. There the phot (negative) can be edited and saved.

SOURCE: I have a Plustek OpticFilm

It is quite possible that there is another piece of software that is clashing with your Plustek OpticFilm scanner. It is hard to tell which software is having a clash. If you remove that software from your system you will obtain the desired results. I suspect the SP3 of Windows XP may be responsible for this because Microsoft has indicated that Windows XP SP3 is not for everyone. If you install Windows XP SP2 uninstalling XP SP3 your problem can definitely be rectified.
Good Luck!

Grey and blue strips appearing when scanning slides


This scanner does not work properly with Windows 7 and there is no fix yet that I know. Also, if you have another scanner installed, such as an all-in-one printer, it will cause conflicts. Having both Windows 7 and another scanner installed would cause this problem. Sorry it's not a fix, but without knowing your operating system (it takes a beefy computer to run) and your setup I can't be more specific.

I haven't used my Optic Fil 7200i (plustek) since upgrading to Windows7. Also, I have moved and my software disk didn't make it in the move! Is there a way to get one mailed to me: Bailey...


Hi,

You can purchase the software disk from this link:
http://plustek.com/usa/buy-parts-and-accessories.html


Alternately, you can download the installation software/driver free of cost from the manufacturer's download website by clicking this link

On the page which opens, enter OpticFilm 7200i in the Serach box under "Option 1: Search By Product Name" and click the Search button (See attached image)

Then select OpticFilm 7200i from the results window. Download the driver in .zip format from the list which opens. After the download completes, extract the .zip file to open the driver file.

Here is the direct link to the driver file.

Hope this solves your problem. Thanks for using FixYa.

No drivers for Plustek Film Scanner


You may have to uninstall the old software and then go ahead and download the software again. It has the windows 7 drivers in there then install it by running the setup file. You can also go into the device manager and right click on the device in there and manually update the drivers in there by telling it the folder that the drivers are located in.

Need AC Power Supply Adapter for Plustek OpticFilm 7200 Scanner


I revisited the Plustek website and found a page where I could send an email to customer service describing my problem. About 24 hours later I received a reply which included an attached order form with the price and the appropriate shipping and tax filled out for the item I needed. The order form instructs one to fill out your particulars and fax the form to Plustek. I have no fax capability so, after a phone call, I was instructed to send the form as an attachment to an email to the customer rep. I received confirmation of my order so, I presume that my order is in the pipeline.

Computer


If the Scanner was plugged into the computer before the software was installed, the computer does not know what to make of the unknown device, (which it cannot identify). This is why it is recommended that the software is installed before connecting a camera scanner or printer. If you check in "Device manager" you may find unknown devices listed under "Other devices" if you remove these and then disconect and reconnect your scanner, it should then detect the scanner correctly.
