The Nikon LS 2000 Film

The lubricant has become sticky and is acting more like adhesive than lubricant. This is the most common cause of malfunction in the LS-2000 and LS-30 scanners. It's a quite curable condition. Nikon LS-2000 and LS-30 film scanner service and repair is available. Check seller pjferrante2 on eBay. Scanner performance backed for 12 months. Very reasonable price.

The LS 2000 scanner shows

Hi,

Stepper motor failure, it means just that or it could be the drive servo, if you can hear it running then it could well be there is something jammed or the drive belt the drives the sensor has come adfrift.

All a stepper motor is basically is the thing that drives the spindle pulley, the rotator is a magnetic disc or drum mounted inside a field coil, a complete reverse to a normal motor as we all know of... a armature mounted inside a magnet.

A stepper motor does not use brushes since the magnetic drum does the rotating in a pair of field coils.

If you could get your hands on a broken scanner, need not be the same model but certainly needs to be the same part numbers of the parts you are replacing.


Hope this helps!!

Connecting a Nikon LS200 slide scanner to a PowerBook G4

Yes - get hold of an Adaptec USB2XCHANGE SCSI-USB cable and download Vuescan software (www.hamrick.com). This works perfectly on LS2000 - Macbook Pro combo.

MESSAGE TO PUT FILM IN SCANNER WHEN SLIDE IS IN SCANNER

I had exactly the same symptoms and it was solved by using the screw on the stepper motor as described in:

http://www.pcreview.co.uk/forums/thread-1936922.php

You have to take the two metal covers off and then the plastic front, to reveal the motor. Use a screwdriver to move the carriage back and forward by a cm or so, leaving it near the front again, but not tightly - say half a turn away from the end-stop.

Good luck

Hardware error

the problem is that the scan sledge gets stuck if arriving at end of screw. To fix:
Open scanner by unscrewing the four screws in the back - this will allow ypu to slide the sides slighly backwards and then remove. Then take the plastic front of (press the plastic tap on top with screwdriver). You will the see a small brass screw center bottom at the front. Loosen this a few turn and try again (you may have to try a few times)...

Good luck

I purchased a used LS2000

The connector is SCSI connector, this technology is still widely in use and is a standard on Macs.

You will need to buy a SCSI adapter.

You will also need to install Windows drivers.

You find drivers at the bottom of this page.

Here the adapter:

When I set up my LS-2000 scanner with VueScan

the problem is very likely with the scanner not detecting that there's a slide in there already. Try cleaning the scanner.
