Question about Nikon Super Coolscan 5000 ED Film Scanner
Well not a complete solution but. . . It will help.
1st Digital Ice will screw up when trying to use it's infrared on Kodakrome so either don't use it or better yet don't use Nikons scanner utils. I use both Silverfast and Vuescan and will never look back yes they both solved this but the real issue is inside but do download a trial of vuescan before you go any further.
Your problem might be a cleaning of the mirror since mounted slides might "curve" in the frame differently and accentuate this issue. Look at this site I clean mine once every 6000 scans which works out to about once or twice a month.
I also recommend (a must do) is run your scanner on its side if you own a sf-210 feeder you already are so look at how this unit attaches on nikon's site or in your manual and do it. This way the guts are on their side (mirror not lying almost flat for all the dust to fall onto it).
Good Luck Morphoto.ca

You must have to send it for repair. You will be charged a little for repairing. Thank you.
