Most places inside the printer were not effected, but unbeknownst to the person cleaning the very expensive printer, there was an optical sensor hidden deep inside the printer whose job it was to sense if a piece of paper had cleared the paper path or not–if the eye could not see anything, the printer assumed there was a piece of paper blocking it’s vision. In order to scan film on a flatbed you have to have the manufacturer’s device that actually has a moving light that tracks with the scan head, without it you’re never going to get anywhere. What i’d like to know is the real life experience and feedback from film scanner users whether dedicated or flatbed, if I get a dedicated one i’ll keep this as flatbed use. Dedicated film scanners are the way to go for 35mm. Some of the options available to you will vary depending on your operating system e. No need to get the latest since it does pretty much the same thing. No funny business, just a whole heap of Lomography love right to your inbox.

Cleaning the Internal Glass of an Epson Scanner ยท Lomography

Digital ICE is very nice, I almost never have any dust or scratches to fix and I am scanning color negatives that are 20 to 35 years old. Epson Product Setup contains everything you need to use your Epson product.

You can see some of the scans of negatives from the ‘s at: Follow the steps provide in the following link to perform clean boot. I’m using an older version of Nikon Scan, and while it has gotten sick once or twice reinstall timeit works well.


Expression Home XP Tip: Place your scanner on a space where you have some room to work; I used my bed. The little pyramid-of-mirrors that HP sells as a single-slide adapter isn’t worth much.

That’s how he came up with a very special concept for the series he shot with the Diana Instant Square for us. If the eye stayed obstructed, the printer assumed there was a paper jam, displayed an “Paper Jam” error code and refused to work again until the paper jam was cleared. It chugs through 4 slides in about 6 minutes with the following settings: Put the screws back in and reconnect everything. I can’t imagine why you care about the fact that they aren’t being manufactured anymore, there are probably enough of them out there already.

I scan the 35mm at dpi, the 6×6 at dpi, and the 4×5 at dpi. No need to get the latest since it does pretty much the same thing. Thanks for your feedback, it helps us improve the site.

I will look into them more but your say first. Thanks for marking this as the answer. No funny business, just a whole heap of Lomography love right to your inbox. This is how I did it. It works well with old Kodachrome, very well with color print film, and is the only one I’ve seen that translates color interneg and print film well.

For some older products the recommendation may be to use a compatible driver for a previous operating system instead e. It does just fine for 4×5 and up, but at dpi does not have enough resolution for my tastes for medium format and 35mm. All scanners work on both computer platforms.

We recommend if available for your product that you download and install Epson Product Setup.
