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.

A) Please refrain from shouting, it is considered rude.

B) Fixya does not sell or supply equipment of any kind - I really feel that your tirade should be directed to the supplier or manufacturer of the item you appear to be unable to operate - my advice is not to shout at them, as if you do so it is unlikely they will take it kindly either.

tweak the USB cable at the back socket of the box...there's a certain point where the cable will actually work and then you will have an image on the screen...sort of not quite completely fully in to the socket.

you're meant to be able to see an image on the screen and it's a manufacturing fault I think. good luck!

No option to scan Film Negatives


In order to see these options, you must have the Film Adapter Unit (FAU) attached to the scanner. The FAU is designed to scan in 35mm film, either positive or negative. The scanner has no options to scan in mounted 35mm slides.

Does the scanner work for scanning at all? If not, you may have a communication problem between the computer and the scanner, i.e., the computer doesn't know how the scanner is configured so it doesn't show the options. If it's a communication problem, check for any other USB devices that might interfere with communication. Especially, some printers seem to take over communications. Try disconnecting all other USB devices (except keyboard, mouse, etc.), reboot, and see if the situation corrects itself.

Also, try the online troubleshooting database for this model at this link.
