Here is my problem: I calibrate the scanner, scan the text, and then the output is sort of acceptable. Then I do it again, and the output worsens instead of getting any better. It's like my scanner has a negative learning curve... what do I do wrong? The scanner is basically useless.
Thank you very much for your help! Marie Muschalek

For those having the "Executes calibration. Pull out the film and place the Film Adapter Unit at Frame 1." issue and cannot calibrate the scanner for NEGATIVE FILM, it took me ages to figure out how to solve it.
Solution: calibrate the frame, WITHOUT any film, adapter plug and placed in frame 1, and proceed to do the calibration WITH THE SCANNER COVER OPEN.
Before I tried everyhing, install new drivers for Windows 8.1, MP Navigator, and nothing happen. Now it works like the first day. Hope it helps! it certainly helped me.
You might have to calibrate the scanner from time to time. The software included should have some type of calibration options. Without calibration, the scanner's "scanning capabilities" deteriorate over time.
The first thing that you should try is to calibrate the scanner. If you don't have the calibration paper you can use a blank white 8 1/2 x 11 sheet. This should clear it up. If it fails calibration after repeated tries you most likely have broken the lens or the image sensor is no longer working. If that is the case then there isn't much you can do i would suggest contacting the manufacturer and hoping that unit is still in warranty.
Try recalibrating it. If you don't have calibration sheets, buy them at:
