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?

    Resetting to default is not working for me. I'm seeing the same blue tint. Any other ideas? Thanks.

    Tried resetting and nothing. The light is clearly magenta as it moves across during the scan. I would have thought it should be white. Is an LED blown?

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.

I need to get rid of the blue tint on all my pictures

Have you checked your camera's white balance setting ? Try setting it to 'Auto' and see if that helps. If not, then there may be a fault in the camera's electronics, which would indicate repair or replacement.

Turned on computer today and my screen is blue green, does not change using monitor buttons?

Sounds like you are using an analog standard VGA cable interface. Since the menu has the correct coloring, it is not the monitors fault. Check the connections of the video cable at each end to ensure they are tight and not kinked. If they are ok, try using a different video cable. If thew problem still exists after that, it is probably the video card in the computer.

Contrast really dark but seems to improve after the tv has been on several hours

You may have a problem with the inverters in the unit, they are responsible for lighting up the back panel. Check or have checked the power supply voltage to the inverters, should be around 18-24 volts DC. Also leaky capacitors on the power supply will cause this issue as well as leaky or puffy capacitors on the inverter.
