Question about Nikon COOLSCAN 5000 ED Film Scanner
I have an 18 month old Nikon Coolscan 5000 ED scanner. It worked well for a while, but is no longer working. I can enter a slide, press preview, and it does that fine. However, when I hit scan, it starts, then after 5 or 6 seconds it stops. The dialogue box "acquiring scan" remains open, but nothing happens (even after 10-15 minutes). I have tried reinstalling the software (same problem) and also checked to see if there is a more recent software upgrade available on the Nikon US site (there isn't).
I am using Windows XP Professional software.
Have you tried resetting the scanner itself?

best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.
