Question about Scanners

6 Answers

I purchased a stratford labs digital image copier model GFP-001 to convert slides to digital pics. Have it installed on my computer (windows xp) but can not get it to scan a clear image. No website available to access help came with the device and can't find it online... any suggestions? Thank you. I have the Stratford Labs GFP-001 Digital Image Copier. It does not work properly. How do I contact the manufacturer for assistance or replacement. You can't even register the dam thing. It does have a serial number but what good is it?

    I got the GFP001 for XMAS and tried using it today. It never seems to do anything when you calibrate it. All the slides I scanned have missing information on one edge and a corresponding black area on the opposite edge. The slides look centered in the mount, but the scanned image is skewed. Also, the slides washed out and color shifted even though they were good exposures with good color saturation.

    If you find a solution to this, would you mind emailing me as well. I am currently researching too and will post if I learn anything!



    Thanks in advance,

    My parents bought it and I'm trying to convert their slides but I have these problems:



    1. No online support. I figured out why and it's because Stratford Labs is not a scanner maker, it's a branding company.

    2. Calibration does nothing

    3. Slides show only white. Their excuse/way out is it's overexposed to begin with which is a lie, because I brought it to a photo place to check.



    With that said, the slides that do come out look ok, would be great if I could get it to work consistently. If anyone can help, it'd be greatly appreciated.

Just found the company that actually makes "Stratford Labs" scanners. Called them very helpful, still sending this one back. They actually answer the phone when you call, that's a plus.
1-847-550-9998 Affillated is the name of the company.

It's a Bell+Howell scanner. They have a troubleshooting guide here :

I've tried 2 different USB ports without success, but the third detected my scanner.


Good luck.

Need an driver update to Windows 7


Most VISTA software and drivers will work with Windows 7. If you get an error trying to load it, it may be because the installer looks for the OS identifier and it is not XP or VISTA. IF that happens, you can right click on the installer file/icon, and select "compatibilty mode" for VISTA to attempt to make it work. This is rarely necessary, however.

Installed the JB5323 Jobar Slide & Negative Scanner into a Window's 7 Professional contained in my Dell and it will not give me all the different things it has. It won't convert the negative...


You don't need any special software or hardware to do this, and it's really easy too! Open one of the saved image files of the negative scan using Microsoft Paint. It's under Start -> Accessories.

Now click select in at the top, and then right click anywhere on the image. At the very bottom of the menu, there should be an 'invert colors' option. Click it. Your negative should now be a normal picture =).

I have recently purchased a new tower which includes Windows7. I have a Canon N650U scanner. I am having trouble installing it. Please help!


Unfortunately the manufacturer has chosen not to support this scanner under either Vista or Windows 7. If you have Windows 7 Professional or Ultimate, you can install the XP mode (a virtual XP computer). You will probably be able to install the scanner in the XP machine. The drivers are listed as being for Windows 98 and Windows 2000; I have never found any Win2K device that didn't install under XP.

You may need to save the images to an external media to transfer them from one "machine" to the other.

I hope this helps.
