Question about Nikon CoolScan V ED Film Scanner
I just installed coolscan v ed. I've scanned a number of photos and they all come out (after scanning) with a razor thin straight line running through the photo. It looks as if someone took an incredibly sharp object and ran it along a ruler over the photo. I can't tell for sure, but I think the line is close to the same spot every time. I have run through several negative strips (black and white and color) and its happened with each one. The strips are also from different rolls of film. I do not have digital ice4 enabled, but saw no reason to as these negatives are less than a week old. The photos that I had printed at the photolab don't show this line.
I solved my problem.
It's pretty personal, but I hope it can help others.
First: I might have created the problem myself because I slightly adapted the slide-mount.
Why?: Some time ago I had some unwilling films the automatic! film-mount wouldn't swallow, so I had to use the manually operated slide mount.
I adapted a slide housing a bit, so it could take and transport film.
To be short: In the end, there was transparent, (but also reflective) material inside the Coolscan V housing, close to the slide.
I removed it.
Second, I turned the scanner 45 degrees, and gave it a calculated whack on the side. (like you did with your tele in the 6ties, but a bit more carefull )
Don't know which one did the trick, or both. I can send a sample.
