Question about Nikon Super Coolscan 4000 ED Film Scanner (35 mm)

1 Answer

Overall Blue Tint

I haven't used the 4000 in a while. I lit it up today and started scanning some slides but the results are all tinted with an overall blue.

I'm using Nikon Scan 4.0.3 on a Vista machine.

Anyone seen this before?

Re: Overall Blue Tint

You might try resetting the "settings" to factory defaults and then scanning again. I have seen strange tints if the settings get set incorrectly, not sure exactly what is wrong. However, using factory defaults corrects the problem, then change settings one at a time.

It's not necessary to delete the previous scanned photo. To scan another slide, place it in the scanner and press the PREVIEW button.

Hp scanjet2300c scans have a yellow tint and black patches.

The best way to check if the scanner is okay or not is by installing on another computer. First try B&W, then try color. IF it works may be your OS or driver (of the old comp) is corrupted.

Random black lines on scanned slides

Normally dark lines are a speck of dirt sticking on to the glass and when scanned continuously, it appears as a line. Clean the glass thoroughly. Ensure the slides are dust free. If the lines are appearing in different locations, it means the dust gets removed while scanning. Line in the same place could be because of glass is scratched. The above is common with roller scanners.

For fat bed scanners, there will be no scratch on the glass. It must be from the slides/documents

Trouble ejecting slide from SF200 nikon coolscan 4000 ed

open the case of the scanner, and check to make sure that the ejection mechanism is not malfunctioning, or jammed someway.  If this is not the problem, try using thinner slides as thicker ones could also cause this.  If all else fails try un plugging the scanner for a few minutes, and try again.
