Nikon coolscan 5000ed, film stuck, will not eject


If you switch off the scanner you should then be able to remove the grey film holder, even though the film strip will still be inside. Then, press the small button above the film entry slit to open the front of the holder. Pull up the top cover, ease the bright metal holder strip forward then lift the metal flap that holds down the film strip. At this point you should be able to remove the film strip. Re=assemble and try again.
Good luck.

SA-21will not pull film strip into chamber


Put the film in after it is powered up. The unit needs to run through a power-up and calibrate cycle first. Once powered up, the until will feed the film in once it reaches a certain point into the machine.

The unit is supposed to kick the film back out when you close down the scanning software. If your film ever gets stuck try this to get it out. DO NOT force the SA-21 out of the machine with film stuck in it.

Not to sound rude, but are you inserting it with the arrows pointing into the scanner?  That is the first step. Afterwards makesure you have the scanner on and the green light is not blinking.

Close the scan program --turn off and unplug the scanner---plug the LS9000 back in and turn it on----reopen the scan program--this is my method on my LS-8000--It does this quite often !

The scanner has a lock which locks the film adapter into the scanner when film is inserted. You probably still have film in the adapter from the last time you used it. If the adapter is pulled to remove it, the connector can become disconnected, which prevents the film from coming out, but the latch is still engaged. With the scanner off, push in the adapter to mate the internal connector. Turn the scanner on then off, the film should eject. Once the film is ejected, the adapter should be able to be removed. Refer to your manual for reference to this problem, I have experienced once before. Once you figure it out, you will not forget, I guarantee.
