Look at the lamp to see if it is dim or burned out; if the lamp is defective, you can contact Microtek here:

When I scan a white or Blu or green line on my paper scan show

It might be that you need to clean the printer heads. Your manual should tell you how to do that; also you might be able to Google an online manual for you printer model.

Is the lamp itself working and turning on? If so then it is the optics that actually scan are bad. or the board that controls them. How long have you owned the scanner?

Scanner doesn't recognise their is a slide loaded in the slide holder

The first thing I'd try is to run the scanner with the Nikon software. When you power on the scanner it goes through a variety of checks, and finally you should have a silent scanner with a solid green light at the front. Start the Nikon software and wait until it finds the scanner, if it doesn't you have a hardware problem with the scanner.

If it goes well to this point insert a card or plastic mounted slide and hit Preview. The scanner should then create and image you see on screen. Next step would be to make a scan. If the slide you're trying to scan isn't card or plastic mounted you'll need the Nikon made carrier.

Hope this helps.

I have canon PIXMA 145. I am not able scan . The moment i place paper and press scan it is showing " printer under repair error code is 2.144.0" Can u suggest me anything. Is it a machanical...

I have many years reparing canon scanners so here is my suggestion to you.

When I do my scanning, and by the way I own a canon pixma also. I do it through the software I never hit the scan button. You can do it through Microsoft paint by using from scanner or camera and aquiring and image. I use paint shop pro so I just open that program and just aquire an image from my scanner. I hope this helps you out but I think its a software problem, because the software takes full control of the scanner if you do it the way I just suggested.

I hope this helps you out.

Black and white scanning, as our scanner scans in colour, I would like to know how to scan in Black in white so to have smaller files. Thanks Sonia

You must select TIFF format for B&W. TIFF G4 format is the smallest. JPG offers both grey and Color outputs.
