Question about Nikon Super Coolscan 5000 ED Film Scanner

1 Answer

Saved files appear as small dark line

I have been using the scanner for months now and have had no problem with over 2000 slides. Today, I was scanning a batch of newer plastic slides and one became stuck as it entered the scanner. This happens every now and then, so I wasn't too concerned and just pulled it out. I didn't damage any of the hardware, but something must have happened.... Every new file appears as a small dark line in a white field. The previews look perfect and gorgeous, but when I scan the actual slides, some glitch occurs. Usually the slides take about 30 seconds to scan, but now they are being ejected after about 10 seconds, and I can hear that the scanner is not doing what it used to. I am not sure what to do at this point. Can you help me?

    Got the exact same problem, after about 3500 slides. No changes to config, settings etc.: a total surprise.

For unexplainable reasons, the Software seems to set it self to a crop of 17x1 pixels. Therefore, the files are small and the pictures essentially a small line. A reset of settings to factory defaults corrects this.

There's nothing you can do to make that scanner work for a Mac because it was made (and its software) exclusively for Windows.

You could try:
-use the scanner and its software on a Windows computer -go to a computer shop and have the slides scanned and saved on your flash drive

Has the scanned slides each been given a File name and saved on the Hard Drive? If yes , burn the files onto a disk from the hard driver using the file names to burn.

Scans slides too dark.


maybe the slides are too dark, in other words, the pictures you took didn't have enough exposure therefore you it shows up dark.. You could always use photoshop or someother photo manipulation software to lighten the scan, same thing happens with my hp scanner with slide adapter, if it slides just show up dark, lightening it with software will help, unless it is unsaturated/shadows too dark, etc..

Hope this helps.

Line on Scanned Documents


There is a spot on the thin strip of glass that sits next to the large scanner glass. Because you are moving the paper when using the feeder, a spot appears as a line. Shining a flashlight on the glass can help you locate it. You can scrape it off with a finger nail or clean it with a damp cloth.

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
