Unable to scan b/w neg's correctly using Digital ICE
I am unable to scan black/white negatives correctly using Digital ICE.
Any C-41 Neg's work great, but when using older b/w neg's (ie: Koday Tri-X), the finished scan comes out looking like a bad xerox copy.
When I uncheck the Digital ICE, scan looks fine...except all the dust & scratches really stand out. which leaves a lot of wasted time trying to correct in Photoshop.
Re: unable to scan b/w neg's correctly using Digital ICE
Unfortunately, you cannot use Digital ICE on B&W films due to silver particles contained within the film. The Digital ICE future only works with C-41 (negatives) and E-6 (slides) processed films, but not B&W films.

RED IS USUALLY POSITIVE RED-WHITE IS MORE THAN LIKELY NEGATIVE TO CHECK SPEAKER POLARITY: 1. HOOK LEADS UP AS I DESCRIBED 2.TAKE A AAA,AA,C,OR D BATTERY 3.CONNECT POSITIVE SIDE TO POS ON BATTERY...NEGATIVE TO NEG END...... 4. IF SPEAKER "CONE" PUFFS OUTWARD..POLARITY IS CORRECT. IF IT PULLS INWARD..POLARITY IS REVERSED

Try using a slightly off-white background sheet behind the negative (glass-negative-sheet-scanner lid) first, or a "frame" around the negative that is anything but white... some scanners have an auto-detect feature that may be skewed for one reason or another.
Another trick, from a photographer friend, is to take saran wrap or another transparent but non-reflective material and place as a filter between the negative and glass, thus reducing glare. The sharpness may be lessened, but the glare is also lessened...
tdohnke-So you need a wiring diagram,well lets see what we got
red-accessory-12volt key switched
white-left front speaker-positive
white with black stripe-left front speaker negative
grey-right front speaker-pos.-
grey w/black stripe-right front-neg.
green w/black stripe-left rear-neg
purple w/black stripe-right rear-neg.
blue- remote turn on
orange w/white stripe-dimmer-optional
Try out this diagram,they are pretty much all the same now,if I missed any let me know. cooltek Mar,4/08
318lawless- these wires are the speaker outputs,the white is left front positive and the white with the black strip is left front negative. grey right front positive, the grey/black is neg. the purple is right rear,purple black neg.green is left rear,green black isneg. If you have any further questions let me know. cooltek Mar,3/08
Or check the battery with a DVM(digital volt meter).
Or get some batteries and connect in series to equal to that voltage and use two wire leads. One lead to -negative side of the battery, other lead to +positive. Now, -neg to neg of camera and +pos to pos of camera.
You now have power to the camera to test. This will save money rather than buying the camera's battery for testing. AA, C or D will work, just look on the camera's battery to see the right voltage.
Examples: with two batteries (1.5VDC + 1.5VDC = 3..0VDC). So -(negative) of one battery to + (positive) of the second battery with solder.
-(-neg, battery, pos+) solder to -(neg, 2nd battery, pos+)+
left side , use black wire on -(Neg) and solder right side, use red wire on +(Pos) and solder.
Now you have two leads, use those to connect to camera.
