Nikon Coolscan III LS-30 repairs

I have just experienced a problem with my scanner. I recieve a message stating the staging screw needs to be removed. The screw is not installed and the scanner ran fine a day ago. Nikon no longer supports the older model. What is your advice? Is there a company that will service it?

I would like to connect my old SCSI coolscan iii


If your macbook doesn't have the correct SCSI card (SCSI II - d-sub mini 50 pin x2 connector) installed, you aren't going to be able to do this. You will need to find this SCSI card and install it in a computer that will accept it.

Nikon Coolscan 9000 not recognized by XP computer anymore....


I read and would like to thank, the person who mentioned this as a solution. It was stated that if you have more than one firewire on your computer, when you open the Nikon, both signals, or whatever happens in computerland, don't connect. Upon removing the drive in the other firewire, Nikon clicks in everytime. Answer: have only ONE active firewire at a time. You may need to unplug the cable to the scanner and reconnect. But that's it. I've not had any problems since
