Question about Nikon Super Coolscan 8000 ED Film Scanner

1 Answer

Tray is stuck

My Nikon Super Coolscan 8000 ED has the 35 mm tray stuck inside it with two strips of negatives. it makes a really terrible sound every time I turn it on. I called Nikon Tech Support and they said I'd have to send it to New York to get it fixed, I would like to avoid this. I've tried powering it down and letting it sit for a few days, but that has not done anything at all. Help, please.

The gear train is probably jammed or stripped. You would be best off to send it out rather than mess with it.

You could take it apart, but there will not be much you can do yourself with it. If you mess it up even more, you will increase the repair cost.

When you send the unit out, tell them to send you back the negatives ASAP, and you are willing to pay the postage.

As they say "stuff" happens. This is all part of doing business...

Nikon Super Coolscan Jam Solution

e487dc7.jpg

Do you find your older slides, cardboard slides, or irregular slides jam in the Nikon SF-210 Slide Feeder for your Nikon CoolScan 4000?

Try this solution:

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

3448982.jpg

The slides will fan out nicely, and your Nikon CoolScan 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.

Will not recognize 5th image on negative strip because 4 and 5 overlap (slight double exposure). How do I scan 5th image?


I inserted my negative holder in backwards on my Nikon 5000 35 mm scanner. Then I could get the last (5th) slide scanned. But I can not get the scanner to work on my new IMac because of no working driver. Silver Fast has no drivers for the Nikon 5000

Recently upgraded from Windows Vista to Windows 7. Where can I get correct drivers to run with my Nikon Super Coolscan slide scanner LS-4000 ED model. I have Nikon Scan 3.0 twain software. Stu Milligan


Hello there.
This will help you if you have 64-bit Windows 7, because officially, there is not windows 7 64 bit driver.
Just read and do everything.

Otherwise, if you have windows 7 32bit click here:

To check bits, go right click on My Computer, Properties, and you will see it.

Hi Good day!!! yes based on what you've said you hear something suspicious in your unit. maybe something wrong with the gears. I'll suggest to contact your local technician to check your unit because it is very risky if you open it on your own.
