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.

I have a Nikon Coolscann 8000 and a Mac computer. I only have the original software with the 8000 and it will not upload with the newer Mac operating systems. How do I get updated software for the 8000.


I have successfully downloaded NikonScan 4.2 on my MacPro running Snow Leopard (10.6.6) and my Nikon LS8000ED seems to work fine. I ran a test scan and it worked with no problem.

Nikon 4.0.2 isn't supported on 10.5

I suggest you look at VueScan which does work under 10.5 and 10.6 with your scanner, and they have a free download to test first

Nikon Coolscan5000 won't work with 10.5.5 Leopard


I just made a post to this site... The only work around I have found to work is this: http://support.nikontech.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/9780

Put the plug-in into the import/export plug-in folder for Photoshop. Then, import the slide directly through Photoshop's Import function.

Hopefully this helps...

Nikon Super Cool Scan 9000 ED doesn't start. No green light, no nothing.


There are now quite some cases on the internet mentioning that their ED 9000 (mine is a ED 8000) won't start anymore. These scanners easily seem to break, and Nikon offers no solutions at all, they even won't repair my 'old' 8000.
