Konica Minolta PS3000 scanner scans too light

Hi there,

I work at a University and our library's document scanner has over the last month started scanning too light to see the scans. The image adjustment in the software has been set as dark as possible (which helped when the issue first started) but now the scans are unreadable and too light no matter what. What component could be the culprit?

SOURCE: Scanned image appears to have an exposure problem

Are you using the software from HP? It sucks. Use the one provided my your operating system works great. Go your Control Panel, Printer and other Hardwares and click Scanners, make a shortcut to your task or start menu and Scan Away!!!!

Have you right clicked on the .exe file of windows 7 executable for the Minolta scanner to select compatibility to switch it back to xp.Have you tried to use third party twain drivers for scan software such as silverfast or vuescan instead?

Will this scanner work on Vista or must I use in on a computer that has XP? How do I get it to work with Vista? Would it be easier if I got Windows 7?


You have to replace the original Konica Minolta driver with the custom one I have created below. Here are the detailed steps.

1) Install the Konica Minolta XP software in Vista/Win7.
2) Plug in your DImage Scanner into a USB port and turn it on with the door closed. It will detect and install the original Konica Minolta Driver.
3) Create an empty folder on you harddrive (for instance go to my computer, double click on the c: drive, then right click and create a new folder named newminolta).
4) Open windows notepad and copy the following into it:
; sonyscanners.inf -- Sony (Konica Minolta) Film Drivers
;
;
; Beta driver for Windows Vista and Windows 7 operating
; systems for all known Sony film scanners.

5. Now save you new notepad file in the directory you created as sonyscanners.inf NOT as sonyscanners.inf.txt or sonyscanners.txt (i.e. c: ewminoltasonyscanners.inf)
6. Go to system control panel (may have to change control panel to classic view to see system).

9. Right click on Minolta XXXX (depending on model) and click on driver tab. Select Update Driver.
10. Select Browse my computer for driver software.
11. Select Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer.
12. Select Have Disk
13. Browse to c: ewminoltasonyscanners.inf and click OK
14. Click Next. Windows should now say it updated driver.
15. Run Dimage software with door closed. Wait for it to initialize and green light stops blinking.
16. Open door and insert film holder and start scanning.
17. If you are trying to use a Minolta 5400 with firewire in Windows 7, you have to change your 1394 driver to the legacy windows 1394 driver in order for the scanner to detect. Google for instructions as it's too detailed to add in here.
18. The above driver should relink virtually all known Minolta scanners (USB/SCSI/Firewire) to the Windows TWAIN driver so it will work with the legacy Minolta software.

I do not have an answer for you, unfortunately, as my Dual Scan IV is doing almost the same thing....my unit will not load the 35mm film slider - when it tries to load, it makes a fairly loud clicking or ratchetting sound. This occurs each time I push the film into the unit. Have you had any replies or have you found a solution to the problem. Thanks and good luck.

Konica Minolta DiMAGE Scan Dual IV Film Scanner driver in an IMac


DS Dual 4 even works with SnowLeopard on a CoreDuo MBP. But it doesn not support Autofocus when used under USB2. You have to use a USB1.1 Port, if you want to use autofocus function. Every time the software crashes, because you tried e.g. to use autofocus with USB2, you will have to close the application, go to the folder User/Library/Preferences/DS Dual4/... and look whether there is a file name something like "MFSlib...." and pull it to the trash bin. You can start the application again. PS.: Your keyboard USB port is a USB 1.1 port!

Scanning documents


You have to install driver with software, you can get it from www.konicaminolta.eu
Also you can scan with MS office or other Windows software, if you installed Twain scanner driver.
Find driver and software link below:

2nd Request for Dimage Scan Dual IV Sharing error


  I JUST SOLVED THIS PROBLEM! These people are right you do have to reinstall the software but it was much more complicated.  Using spotlight, which is the the little magnifying glass in the upper most right hand corner of your screen you have to search for and delete a bunch of things that are not in the folder in applications but in documents instead. Anyway, I searched the words "Dimage", "dual", "Konica", "Minolta", "scan" and "idh". The idh things are some kind of plug-ins (I think). I warn you, all of these words brought up random stuff that should not be deleted (mostly images but also some documents) . Be careful, when I typed in the word "scan" over 600 items came up and it was hard to separate what was photoshop related and what was scanner related. Once you get rid of every file related to the scanner, restart your computer. Then reload the software and restart your computer again. After this the scanner should fire right up and the light will stop blinking. I was able to scan a tray of slides and a strip of negs too. One more thing. Don't forget to "dump your trash" before you restart your computer for the fist time Even things in the trash will stop it from opening. If it doesn't work you probably just missed a file somewhere.
