First suggestion would be to connect scanner to another PC to see if the problem persists. Might also help to try to scan with alternative material (mix if slides and negatives) to narrow down where the issue lies. You could also play with features such as Digital ICE on and off. I'm afraid if none of these produce a functioning scanner you will need to contact Nikon to arrange a repair. There is really nothing the typical user can do to fix these machines at home.

Well not a complete solution but. . . It will help. 1st Digital Ice will screw up when trying to use it's infrared on Kodakrome so either don't use it or better yet don't use Nikons scanner utils. I use both Silverfast and Vuescan and will never look back yes they both solved this but the real issue is inside but do download a trial of vuescan before you go any further.
Your problem might be a cleaning of the mirror since mounted slides might "curve" in the frame differently and accentuate this issue. Look at this site I clean mine once every 6000 scans which works out to about once or twice a month.

I also recommend (a must do) is run your scanner on its side if you own a sf-210 feeder you already are so look at how this unit attaches on nikon's site or in your manual and do it. This way the guts are on their side (mirror not lying almost flat for all the dust to fall onto it).
Good Luck Morphoto.ca

SOURCE: Nikon scan was unsable to find any active device

I may have a solution for the unrecognized film holder/clunking problem.  The fix is not for the faint of heart, but you can do it yourself and save a bunch of money.  The problem lies in the two rails inside the scanner that the film carrier rides on.  After unplugging you scanner, remove the 8 screws from the rear of the unit and slide the cover rearward about 3/4" and then lift it straight off.  Inside you will see two shiny machined rods running from front to back.  The problem is those two rods have dried up lubricant on them and the film carrier drags a bit during film carrier insertion and/or scans.  The easiest way I found to clean the rods is to remove the front cover (look for screws inside on each side), and then carefully slide those rods out (but NOT all the way) and wipe off what is exposed and then apply a little silicone lubricant to the rods (be very careful to not get any down into the lens area).  Then slide the rods back in and repeat for the portion that is exposed in the rear.  Carefully re-assemble everything and you should be all set.  This fix worked for me on an 8000ED that I purchased used on eBay.  Hope this helps someone.  Brian

The card is not locked.The other message is Memory card error. I have tried two cards they both get the same message, but when I put in the one that came with the camera a 16mg card , it works fine


Solution 1 • Unlock focus area selector. • Auto-area AF selected for Custom Setting 2 (AFarea mode): choose another mode. • Press shutter-release button halfway to turn monitor o?¬? or activate exposure meter • Memory card is full, locked, or not inserted. • Flash is charging. • Camera is not in focus. • CPU lens with aperture ring attached without locking aperture at highest f/-number. • Non-CPU lens is attached: rotate camera mode dial to M. • Mode dial rotated to S after shutter speed of bulb selected in mode M: choose new shutter speed • P, S, A, and M modes: lower ?¬? ash. • Digital Vari-Program modes: turn ?¬? ash o?¬? Turn long exposure noise reduction o?¬? Turn long exposure noise reduction o?¬? Press multi selector up or down or rotate sub-command dial to choose photo information displayed Select All for Playback folder. Note that Current will automatically be selected when next photo is taken • Select On for Rotate tall. • Photo was taken with O?¬? selected for Auto image rotation. • Camera orientation was changed while shutter-release button was pressed in continuous shooting mode. • Camera was pointed up or down when photo was taken Use Nikon-approved card. • Card may be damaged. Contact retailer or Nikonauthorized service representative. • Delete unwanted ?¬ les or insert new memory car after removing and replacing the memory card and powering off then back on your cam, you may see how the system now registers your photos will having to click back and forth between AUTO and MAN. I posted very closely related troubleshooting steps to take in order to prevent your CAM from performing badly. Check your CAM batteries to ensure they are using only approved NIKON batteries as anything else will cause you lots of errors and potential problems. When you using the timer or remote options, remember these are controlled by battery as well, radio frequency, and radio wave lengths. When you press the button to take a photo, inspect the button, press firmly for a second and release. If your button is not performing the way it should, inspect it to see if any wear and tear is visible to you. Check free deprey around the button such as DUST, HAIR BUILDUP, and small particals that are hardly visible to the human eye. With very low velocity pressure air, blow around the shoot button as build up will cause the same error your experiencing. I SUSPECT THE NEWER CARD IS NOT COMPATIBLE AS THE OLDER CARD IS

There are several factors that can contribute to getting better focus and improved results. 1. Auto Focus / Auto Exposure lock. Press the shutter button down HALF WAY. The camera will attempt to adjust exposure to the current lighting environment for maximum benefit. Then the camera will automatically correct the focus based on objects in the center of the display. If the camera can automatically set the focus and exposure, the LED by the viewfinder will turn GREEN. If the camera can not adjust the settings automatically, the LED will turn RED. This process usually takes about two to three seconds. 2. Be sure not to cover the sensor on the front of the camera with your finger. This will disable the automatic focus and exposure controls. 3. Rely on the Rear LCD Display. When in doubt, trust the LCD. The LCD will display the subject more accurately than the viewfinder. This will help with "framing" the subject, or determining if you have enough light for proper exposure. 4. Motion can cause a "blur" effect. Either motion of the subject, or motion by the photographer. This phenomenon is just like traditional photography. Moving objects may appear to blur, and this will be even more evident in lower lighting situations as the shutter speed slows down to allow for more light. The shutter will react faster in bright light, and motion will not be as apparent.
