Question about Nikon COOLSCAN IV ED LS40

1 Answer

SA-21will not pull film strip into chamber

Had my LS-40 for a long time, was great, but now it will not pull the film
strip in when I hand feed it. When I open the SA-21 and insert the film my
hand, it will be auto rejected when I power up. Looks like the system is not
sensing the entry of the film strip? Are there sensors in the SA-21 and how
to I get to them?

thanks,

BMac

    This is bernie410, the problem poster. Problem cleared by turning the scanner off, removing the SA-21 from the scanner body, powering on and getting the quick flashing

    "error" light, then powering off, re-inserting the SA-21 strip scanner and then powering up again. Seems to have needed that cycle to correct itself.



    thanks,

Put the film in after it is powered up. The unit needs to run through a power-up and calibrate cycle first. Once powered up, the until will feed the film in once it reaches a certain point into the machine.

The unit is supposed to kick the film back out when you close down the scanning software. If your film ever gets stuck try this to get it out. DO NOT force the SA-21 out of the machine with film stuck in it.

I've got Nikon F65. I cannot load film. The motor which load up the film doesn't move at all. Please help!


I don't know this model but you can try this.Drop the film canister in and pull the film strip out and place on the film advance sprocket.Rotate the sprocket by hand/thumb until film is seated (1 turn). If the auto feed is working you will be OK. 2 other things ,1 of course load film in dark area, 2 check the batteries on the camera first, if they are week your film advance wont work ,Good Luck.

I can not open the back of the camera to load new film and battary


The battery gets loaded at the bottem of the camera, and if you use the rewind now which i believe is on the left hand side on the top, if you pull that up it will release the chamber of the back, but make sure you press the button on the bottom in and rewind the film before opening the back, otheriwise your film strip is useless. cause its exposed. :) good luck

My gun fires but only loads the nail 20-30% of the time. I tried taking it apart but don't know where to look for the problem. Please help!


The problem will reside in the nail chamber. Most likely you have junk there or a scored feed area. Check the plunger and feed area for dirt and/or scoring to determine what exactly is holding up your advancing of strip nails.

I have no idea how to put my film in the "Pentax mz-m" camera? Someone help me. I'm new to this as I am just doing photography at school!


Pull up on the rewind knob ( left side ) to open the film door. put film cassette in chamber then lower rewind knob and pull enough film leader to the take up spool. attach film to spool. close the film door then advance the film to #1 on the counter.

Paper feed pulling to the right during paper feed


Dear all,
Error code 5100 indicates CR (carriage return) error occurs. There are 2 possibilities of this case: Film timing **** strip is dirty or carriage part is faulty. Look inside your printer. There is a film, installed in horizontal position. Try to clean this film first;wipe carefully with moistened clothe. If the problem still persist, it seems that carriage is faulty.
Regards,
