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

1 Answer

Nikon Coolscan 4000ED

In the middle of a batch scan using the SF200 slide feeder the scanner stopped working with a computer generated note saying a hardware fault had occured, power off and try again. I tried as told but the computer is not recognising the scanner now. The green LED comes on then starts flashing rapidly which the troubleshooting says is a hardware fault. Can you give me any quick fixes or does it have to go away for repair? Solutions already tried are, power off/on connected with the computer on, connected with the computer off, disconnected from the computer, SF200 installed, not installed, powered off overnight - all with the same flashing LED result.

Just curious... did you unplug the unit for a period of time, or did you only power it off? I would definitely unplug it for about ten minutes, then plug it back in.

Problems with batch scans and with filing using a non-Nikon code system


Did you try saving your choice of settings as user settings ? That way, they will serve as defaults for all subsequent scans.

Nikon Coolscan IV ED Jam Solution Do you find your older slides, cardboard...


Nikon Coolscan IV ED Jam Solution

926fb88.jpg

Do you find your older slides, cardboard slides, or irregular slides jam in the Nikon SF-210 Slide Feeder for your Nikon CoolScan IV ED?

Try this solution:

Take a AAA battery and place it in rear, left side of the slide feeding tray as pictured below:

4f7ce74.jpg

The slides will fan out nicely, and your Nikon CoolScan IV ED will no longer try to load more than one at a time. Instead it will load them one at a time, 50 per tray, and you can actually walk away from it and let it do its job, just the way you intended to when you bought the SF-210 slide feeder attachment!

I hope that helps.

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.

Fix that Jamming Slide in your Nikon CoolScan 5000ED / SF-210 Slide Feeder


I balked when someone whispered this tip to me; the thought of putting foreign objects into my Nikon CoolScan 5000ED slide scanner with its SF-210 slide feeder seemed asking for trouble.

After about a thousand slides worth of experience, and many batches that seemed to jam every other slide, I gave it a try and boy did it do the trick.

The SF-210 slide feeder works flawlessly with newer, thicker, plastic slide mounts, but if you are archiving and digitizing older, cardboard slides like I am then here's what wasn't printed in the CoolScan user's manual:

Take a AAA battery and place it in rear, left side of the slide feeding tray as pictured below.

Instead it will load them one at a time, 50 per tray, and you can actually walk away from it and let it do its job, just the way you intended to when you bought the SF-210 slide feeder attachment!

I hope that helps.
