I'm scanning slides. (I have several hundred to scan) The scanner works for a bit, then it stops and my computer siezes. I reboot and it does it again. I've gone from 600 dpi to 300 dpi to 150 dpi and no luck. This will happen several times. It seems unrelated to anything consistent, it will stop scanning and everything shuts down, frozen. Only rebooting gets the computer going again. I've tried rebooting the scanner but it will respond only after the computer is rebooted. Incredibly frustrating.

Re: scanning siezes computer and scanner
Hello, I believe that what you are having a power issue on the USB port. This port is limited to a certain total amount of power and if you are using other devices on the usb ports they each take away from the total amount available for use. The fix for this issue would be for you to buy a Powered USB Hub, as it has a transformer that plugs into the wall and will avoid using any of the computer's usb power to run the scanner.

The design of the iConvert slide scanner is that it stores scanned images onboard on an sandisk or sd card. Using an adapter or card reader you can then take those scanned images and place them on your computer.
If the weather band is working, the scanner should be working. To verify operation:
- Move the MODE switch to "Scanner" and power the unit ON. - Press the SVC button (chrome button below display). - Press POL (chrome button below display). - Turn the SQUELCH knob towards the left until scanning stops and you hear a hissing noise. - Turn the SQUELCH knob towards the right slowly until scanning resumes.
If the scanner stops on anything - even noise, it's working.
- Slide the MODE key to "Scanner." - Power the unit ON - Turn the SQUELCH knob to the left until you hear a hissing noise, then turn it the right - slowly - until scanning resumes. - Press HOLD. - Press E (PGM). - Press 0, 1. - Press HOLD. - Enter your first frequency, including the decimal point (EX: 156.055). - Press the E (PGM) key. - Press the UP arrow (above the SCAN key). Scanner will move to channel 02. - Enter your second frequency, including the decimal point. - Press the E (PGM) key.
You should now have two frequencies programmed. Press the SCAN key . . .
If it still will not accept programming, let me know.
I have successfully used my Visioneer 9520 to scan 35mm slides, and they came out perfect. To do this, in my image editing software, I select File/Import/Acquire/Visioneer ScanManger Pro. This opens the VIsioneer scan manager window, where I select "Scan 35mm using:" and then I choose the desired scanning configuration, e.g., "35mm Better, 35mm Best, Custom" etc. See image below.
BTW: After several moves, I have lost my 35mm scanning template. Do you know where I can get another one, or do you know someone who could actually scan theirs and email the image to me? I could then create a duplicate from heavy black construction paper or card stock.
I have had this problem. It has given me hours of frustatation. It would start the scanning process then it would stop or hang at any point along the process. I did the usb thing, no good. What I found was the warmer the day got the sooner it got buggy. I dont blame the scanner, I am pretty sure the problem lies in the PC. The PC heat doesnt seem to affect any other programs, or not that I can tell. It is only when scanning. It also seems that that the more things I add like roc and gem the sooner it gets buggy. Sometimes if I turn these off and it will run a bit more but it will eventually not scan at all. It will all be good after I turn it all off and let it cool down. I have let the scanner cool down before trying again while leaving the computer on but it still stops while scanning. I scan my slides singularly and from photshop. This does not affect the bugginess. I dont use ice on my kodachromes as it seems to get buggy and chops out power lines. I use a soft puffy brush from a camera shop to clean the slide. I have some issues with flairing but only on a few slides. I turn down the analog gain helps only a tiny bit. I try to fix it in photoshop.
Hi, I have the same problem. I am running on the same computer with the same software Nikon Scan without problems. Found out that the problem happens mostly when a crop is selected that just eliminates the scanning frame. Without crop mostly OK. However no reason why and no real solution
Since the scanner works with pictures, make sure that the TMA adapter is plugged into the back of the scanner. Next open the software, HP Photo & Imaging Director. In most versions of Windows, press Start and look for the HP programs heading. Expand this to find the executable file. Alternatively, find the icon on the desktop or find the software in the file explorer (Program Files/HP/ on 32-bit versions, Program Files (x86)/HP) and then the appropriate sub-folder. Now try to scan the slides when they are loading in the adapter.
I hope this helps. Please add a comment with your OS if you are still having problems. Some newer OS versions may have installed generic drivers for the ScanJet 3570C. The generic driver might not communicate with the TMA properly.)
Nah i didnt get into any trouble,, feel free to use us anytime!!! I'm happy the scanner worked if you need any more help you know how to find us..Next time that happens with the scanner try unplugging it restart the system and then plug it back in.. :)
Normally dark lines are a speck of dirt sticking on to the glass and when scanned continuously, it appears as a line. Clean the glass thoroughly. Ensure the slides are dust free. If the lines are appearing in different locations, it means the dust gets removed while scanning. Line in the same place could be because of glass is scratched. The above is common with roller scanners.
For fat bed scanners, there will be no scratch on the glass. It must be from the slides/documents
