    Ok, I have a CanoScan 8600F -- I have to uninstall first, right? Sorry, not real good at this. Don't know how to print screen and get it posted. :-(

  • Chatta Jan 20, 2008

    for some strange reason, I cannot print screen. I hold ctrl and then hit print screen and nothing happens. and yes, my printer is on :-)

  • Chatta Jan 20, 2008

    This says a web page cannot be found. I have adobe which opens most files.

  • Chatta Jan 20, 2008

    I have gone on line with Canon and they said they would reply. Maybe I can get some help from them.

    Take a snap shot of your screen CTRL + PRINT SCREEN and upload it here ( in th box where you type, its the second icon to the top) and we will see whats happening

  • Rishi Roshan Ali Jan 20, 2008

    Well thats why you cant scan negatives, the scanner has to be set to scan it specifically, Could you post your scanner make and model for me and if you could, a snap shot of the settings part of your screen for the scanner.. While you are doing this, please reinstall your scanner driver as well..

  • Rishi Roshan Ali Jan 20, 2008

The 35mm strips won,t fit in my holder how should I be inserting them in the holder


The holder that takes 35 mm negative strips on one side and 4, 35 mm slides on the other has a plastic frame that holds the 35 mm film in place. To load film you have to first remove that frame by putting your finger in the opening by the large "A" and popping that end up. The frame fits in only one direction and must be clipped back in by first engaging the two small fingers into openings at the end opposite to the "A" and the lowering the retainer down snapping the 3 sets of 3 clips as you work toward the "A".

I have a Coolscan IV with the coolscan 3 Software, and i have a mac book pro. The following message appears: Error "Could not send look up tables to scanner.", Please help me


Try upgrading to v4.02 driver. You may need to download 4.0 first as 4.02 may only upgrade from 4.0. The scanner runs with v4.02 on my Mackbook pro but I can only scan using the slide adapter and the film holder at present. The film adapter will not work but i'm not sure if this is a hardware or software problem.

  • Click Settings > Scan Settings > Button Settings at the bottom of the left pane.

  • Click the Scan Picture Button tab. Under "Scan to" select the program you would like to edit the image with after the scan is finished.

Select the program you would like to use to open each type of scan, or select "Save to File" and the desired file type. Select your preferences under the Document or Picture menus based on the type of image or document you will scan most often using this button. Ensure that the "Show Preview" check box is checked for each button type. Click "OK."
  • Place your document or picture on the glass. If scanning film, place the 35 mm negative or slide in the special adapter provided by HP.

Click "Scan" and then "OK" to see the scan preview.

    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.
