Question about Nikon COOLSCAN 5000 ED Film Scanner

1 Answer

Grey scanning color

I just got a replacement Nikon Coolscan 5000 scanner (the old one broke) and the quality of the repalcement is not good. The pictures come in very grey and the color gets washed out. Anyone ever seen this?

Did you remove the previous driver/software from the other scanner? I suppose you have already tried uninstall/reinstall driver/software, Likely you should have the updated firmware if this is a current scanner. Also, you may want to try importing the scanner source from a different imaging program to see if it has to do with the manufacture software.

Nikon Coolscan Slide Feeder Jam Solution

593662b.jpg
Do you find your older slides, cardboard slides, or irregular slides jam in the Nikon SF-210 Slide Feeder for your Nikon CoolScan 5000?

Try this solution:

Take a AAA battery and place it in rear, left side of the slide feeding tray as pictured below:

The slides will fan out nicely, and your Nikon CoolScan will no longer try to load more than one at a time. Instead it will load them one at a time, 50 per tray, and you can actually walk away from it and let it do its job, just the way you intended to when you bought the SF-210 slide feeder attachment!

I hope that helps.

You're not going to be happy with this answer:

Nikon has formally sworn off doing ANY future software updates for their scanners. They stopped at 10.4 (pre-Leopard)

See
- http://support.nikonusa.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/16811
and

Yes, there are a LOT of people VERY unhappy with this answer, but we're all kind of stuck with it.
