Scanning OLD Negatives - old browning? Scanner is cutting half

I have old B & W Negatives that measure 4.25" x 2.75" ,I tried to scan with the only slide insert that it would fit in. It scanned nicely with thw exception that the epson scanner software cut the image in half. It it is as if it sees it as 2 different images. I tried to reset the software to scan the image to match the original siaze and even tried a manual set. This did not work. There must be a setting I am missing.

My Canoscan lide 700f will no longer scan negatives


Hello try to reinstall the software for the scanner from here:

http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/scanners/film_negative_scanners/canoscan_lide_700f#DriversAndSoftware

Please select your windows system 32 or 64 bit.
Download the driver and uninstall the old software before you install the new.

Canon does make an driver upgrade once a while to fix previous problems with the software.

Hope this will help you

How do I scan negatives?


You can try scanning negatives the same way you scan prints, but the results may not be great. Scanners that are designed to scan negatives usually have some way to put light behind the negative to make sure it scans with enough contrast. They often also come with special holders for negatives. I don't know if your model was specifically meant to do negatives, but you can't hurt anything by trying.

After you scan a negative you need to convert it to a positive. The scanner may have come with software that can do this. If not, IrfanView is a free program that can do that as well as much more. It's a great general-purpose image viewer, so it's worth downloading in any case.

I am looking for instructions on this product.


Step 1: Open the scanner lid and remove the Transparent Materials Adapter (TMA).
Step 2: Place your slides or negatives into the appropriate template. Follow the orientation indicated by the icons on the template.
Step 3: Tip: If you are scanning fewer than the maximum number of negatives with the TMA, cover the empty spaces with the provided light shields to avoid letting any extra light in
Step 4: Place the template on the scanner glass, aligning the arrow on the template with the indicated mark on the scanner bed.
Step 5: Close the scanner lid and press the Scan Film button (or select the Scan Film option if you're using the HP Solution Center application on your PC).
Step 6: In the Scanning from dialog box, click Change Settings.
Step 7: Under Scan Shortcut Settings, select your Scan Type (either Negatives (TMA) or Slides or Positives (TMA)).
Step 8: Under Scan To select Save to file. Then click Scan.
Step 9: Under the Save Location dialog box, click Browse and enter the destination folder of your choice. Click OK and follow any on-screen instructions to finish scanning. The scan will be sent to the destination folder you selected. s.gif s.gif

The light on the lid, for scanning negatives won't move


You will most likely find that the FAU cable that connects the lift up lid part to the lower part of the scanner has at least one fractured wire within it. There are eight quite fine wires and the constant opening and closing of the lid has caused this to occur. Unless you have some micro-surgery skills and a small soldering iron it's off to the scanner shop, I'm afraid.
