1. Overview

Thank you for your purchase of a Nikon LS-2000 scanner for 35 mm film. The LS-2000 is a high-speed, high-resolution scanner capable of producing images suited to a wide variety of tasks, including desk-top publishing, design, and multi-media publishing. Its modular design allows you to change from scanning 35 mm slides to scanning 35 mm strip film on the fly, while optional adapters are available for scanning IX240 film and multiple consecutive slides. The LS-2000 uses a high-speed SCSI interface for connection to computers running Mac OS System Software 7.1 or later, Windows 95 or later, or Windows NT 4.0 or later. The scanner driver software provided with your scanner, Nikon Scan 2.0, offers sophisticated pre-scan editing of images, including precise color correction, contrast, and brightness adjustment. Nikon Scan can be launched from any TWAIN-compliant application under Windows or in any application that supports Adobe Photoshop plug-ins (version 2.0 or higher) on the Macintosh. Nikon Scan can also be used as a stand-alone application, allowing you to save scanned images to disk without the help of another application. The users manuals for the LS-2000 and Nikon Scan are divided into three parts. This Users Guide offers a brief introduction to setting up the scanner and scanning images using Nikon Scan. More detailed reference manuals for the scanner and for Nikon Scan are provided on CD-ROM. To read these manuals you will need to install the Adobe Acrobat Reader software included on the reference CD. In addition, a one-page Fast Track Guide is provided for experienced users who want to get started with the minimum of instruction. Where appropriate, this guide will refer readers to the reference manuals or Fast Track Guide for more information. References to the manuals on CD are indicated by a icon in the margin, references to the Fast Track Guide by a icon.
The chapters that follow provide a step-by-step guide to installing your scanner and using Nikon Scan to scan 35 mm slides or strip film. The next chapter, Parts and Accessories, lists the things you should find packaged with your LS-2000 and names the parts of the scanner.

3. Setup
This chapter takes you step-by-step through the process of setting up the LS-2000 and installing Nikon Scan.

Setting up the LS-2000

This section outlines the steps involved in connecting the LS-2000 to a computer. Before using your scanner, you will need to complete the following steps: select a suitable location for the scanner remove the transport locking screws connect the power and SCSI cables set the SCSI ID Step 1Choose a location for the scanner Before connecting the LS-2000 to your computer, choose a flat, stable location for it, free from vibration and dust. Do not install your scanner where: it would be exposed to direct or reflected sunlight it would be subject to condensation or drastic changes in temperature it would be subject to radio interference from other electronic devices the temperature exceeds 35C (95F) or falls below 10C (50F) other objects would block the scanners vents

The scanner has feet both on its base and on one side, making it possible to place the scanner either on its base or on its side. When installing the scanner, leave enough space free for ease of operation. There should be at least 5 cm (2) of space above the unit, and 10 cm (4) behind. Space requirements are illustrated below. When installing the scanner on its base
Caution: The scanner must be installed with the feet down, as shown in the illustrations on these pages. Do not store or operate the scanner in any other orientation.
When installing the scanner on its side
Step 2Remove the transport locking screws Once the scanner is installed, slide the front cover open. Using a coin, remove the transport locking screws from the adapter slot and side panel and screw them into the holes provided on the rear panel. The adapter slot contains a guard to prevent the transport screw from falling into the scan mechanism when the transport screw is removed. After removing the transport screw from the adapter slot and screwing it into one of the holes on the rear of the scanner, remove the guard and store it in a safe place. Caution: Never turn the scanner on with the locking screws in place. Turning the power on in these circumstances could damage the scanner. Note: Replace the locking screws and guard when transporting the scanner (see the LS-2000 Reference Manual).
Step 3Connect the power cable Before connecting the power cable, confirm that the scanner is off and that the transport locking screws have been removed from the side of the scanner and adapter slot. The scanner is off when the end of the power switch marked 0 is down.

Power switch off

Attach the female end of the power cable to the AC connector on the rear of the scanner and insert the male end into a generalpurpose household outlet. Safety Precautions Use an AC power supply of 50/60Hz and a voltage of from 100V240V. Be sure to use a power cord rated for the appropriate voltage. At voltages of more than AC 125V: use a power cord that complies with the safety standards of the country in which it is used, which has a plug rated for AC 250V, 15A (NEMA 6P-15) and insulation of SVT type or better, and which is more than AWG18 in thickness. At voltages of AC 125V or less: use a power cord that complies with the safety standards of the country in which it is used, which has a plug rated for AC 125V, 10A and insulation of SVT type or better, and which is more than AWG18 in thickness. Do not damage or modify the power cable. Fire or electric shock may result if the cable is placed under heavy objects, exposed to heat or flame, or forcibly tugged or bent.
Should the insulation become damaged and the wires become exposed, contact your retailer or Nikon service office for replacement. Continued use could cause fire or electric shock. Do not handle the cable when your hands are wet. Doing so could cause electric shock. The outlet into which the power cable is plugged must be grounded. Failure to ground the power supply could result in electric shock. The scanner and all devices to which it is connected must be connected to a common ground. If a common ground is not used, a ground loop could occur, causing electric shock or static noise. Do not plug the power cord into an extension cord or multipleoutlet extension, as this could result in fire or malfunction.

Use an independent outlet whenever possible. If the scanner is plugged into an outlet to which a household appliance such as a vacuum cleaner or air-conditioner is connected, the scanners power supply may be subject to noise. Unplug the power cable by pulling on the plug, not on the cable itself. Pulling directly on the cord could result in damage that could cause fire or electric shock.
The shape of the cable depends on the country of sale
Do not connect or disconnect the cable while the power is on.
Step 4Connect the SCSI cable The LS-2000 connects to your computer by a Small Computer Systems Interface, or SCSI. To use a SCSI connection, you will need an appropriate SCSI cable and, in the case of IBM PC/AT compatible computers, a SCSI extension board (SCSI adapter) or PCMCIA card (see the FastTrack Guide and the LS-2000 Reference Manual for details). This section describes the procedure to connecting the LS-2000 to a SCSI chain made up of your computer and SCSI devices connected to it in a series. SCSI devices cannot be connected while the power is on. Before connecting the scanner to the SCSI chain, be sure that the computer and all other devices in the chain, including the scanner, are off. How the scanner should be connected to the chain depends on whether it is to be located between other devices or attached at the end of the chain.
When the scanner is the last device in the chain 1. Set the terminator switch on the rear of the scanner to ON
2. Connect the SCSI cable to either of the two SCSI connectors on the rear of the scanner and connect the other end to the next device in the chain
Scanner only external device in chain

Other SCSI device

Scanner last of several external devices
When the scanner is between other devices 1. Set the terminator switch on the rear of the scanner to OFF
2. Connect the SCSI cable from one of the devices in the chain to either of the connectors on the rear of the scanner, then connect a cable to the remaining connector and attach the other end to a connector on the next device in the chain

OFF SCSI ON

Terminator

3. Confirm that the last device in the chain is terminated Note: If the last device in the chain has an unused SCSI connector, a separate terminator should be attached to it, even if the device is connected to the SCSI chain using a through terminator.

SCSI connection checklist Turn off the computer, the LS-2000, and all SCSI devices before connecting the scanner. Be sure that the devices at both ends of the SCSI chain are terminated. If the host computer is a Macintosh, the chain will already be terminated at the computer end. In the case of IBM PC/AT compatibles in a chain which contains external devices only, the chain should be terminated at the SCSI board. In the case of a chain which includes internal devices, you may need to remove termination from the board and terminate the last internal device. The maximum number of SCSI devices that can be connected in a single chain is eight, including the computer and any internal SCSI devices such as hard disks or CD-ROM drives. The total length of cabling in the SCSI chain should be no more than six meters (twenty feet). The longer the cabling, the less reliable the connection.
Safety Precautions Do not damage the SCSI cablings protective insulation. Do not forcibly tug or bend SCSI cables, place cables under heavy objects or expose them to heat or flame. When disconnecting cables, handle the cable by the connector, not by the cable itself. Should the insulation be damaged or the internal wiring exposed, replace the cable immediately. Do not handle SCSI cables or devices when your hands are wet.
Step 5Set the scanners SCSI ID Each device in the SCSI chain has a unique ID, which is a number between zero and seven that the computer uses to distinguish between different devices. When connecting the LS-2000 to a SCSI chain, the scanners SCSI ID must be set to a number that is not shared by any of the other devices, including the computer itself. The scanners SCSI ID is indicated by the SCSI ID dial on the rear panel. Before the scanner leaves the factory, the ID is set to 2.

SCSI ID 4

When choosing another ID for the scanner, bear in mind that the computer will usually have an ID of either 0 or 7, and that internal hard disks often have IDs of 0 or 1. In the case of Macintosh computers, the computer will have an ID of 7, while the internal hard disk and CD-ROM drive often have IDs of 0 and 3, respectively. In general, it is recommended that you set the scanners ID to any number other than zero, one, three, and seven that is not used by another SCSI device. Caution: Assigning the same ID to two different devices could render the computer system inoperable or result in important data on a hard disk being lost or corrupted.
To change the scanners ID, turn the scanner off. Then, using a screwdriver, turn the dial on the back of the scanner to choose a new ID.

SCSI NB

Note: The LS-2000 conforms to Level 1 of the SCAM (SCSI Configured Auto-Magically) SCSI-selection standard, which allows some computers to set the scanners ID automatically. If your computers operating system supports Plug&Play and the SCSI host (computer or SCSI extension board) conforms to SCAM, the scanner may be automatically assigned an ID which differs from that set using the SCSI ID dial. SCAM will not assign conflicting IDs to SCSI devices.

SCSI 0

4. Scanning

This chapter takes you step-by-step through the process using Nikon Scan to scan images with your LS-2000. Step 1Turn on your computer After turning on the scanner and any other peripheral devices, turn on your computer. Step 2Start Nikon Scan Nikon Scan can be used to scan images into third-party host applications such as Adobe Photoshop, or it can be used as a standalone application for scanning images and saving them to disk. To start Nikon Scan from another application, select Nikon Scan from the applications list of acquire or import sources. To use Nikon Scan as a stand-alone application, select Nikon Scan from the Start menu (Windows) or double-click the Nikon Scan icon in the folder to which Nikon Scan has been installed. Whether Nikon Nikon Scan Scan is opened directly or from a host application, the Nikon Scan icon scan window will appear on the desktop after a brief pause while the program locates and identifies the scanner.

The scan window

Step 3Insert an adapter in the scanner The LS-2000 comes with separate adapters for scanning mounted 35 mm slides and strips of 35 mm film containing up to six frames each. Either adapter can be inserted in the scanner while the scanner is on. Before mounting an adapter in the adapter slot, check that the scanners status LED is glowing steadily. Adapters should not be inserted or removed while the status LED is blinking. Open the scanners front cover and slide the adapter in as shown in the illustrations below, stopping when the adapter is fully inserted. In the case of the SA-20, be sure that the connectors on the rear of the adapter are fully inserted in the connectors at the back of the adapter slot.
Inserting the MA-20 SLIDE MOUNT ADAPTER
Inserting the SA-20 STRIP FILM ADAPTER
A plastic tray is provided with the strip-film adapter to catch film ejected from the scanner. This tray is attached to the adapter as shown below.
Cautions Wait until the status LED glows steadily or the scanner is off before inserting or removing adapters. Do not replace adapters while the scanner is operating. If an adapter does not slide in smoothly, remove it from the adapter slot and try again. Do not use force.
Step 4Insert film Insert the film to be scanned into the adapters film slot. When the scanner is installed on its side, the film should be oriented so that the photograph or frame number is not reversed. When inserting slides, the short side of the aperture should face toward the scanner.
To scan a film strip with the SA-20 strip-film adapter, grasp the film lightly by both edges and slide it into the film slot a short distance. The adapters feed mechanism will be activated and the film will be fed into the scanner automatically.
Cautions Examine the film for use in the SA-20 carefully prior to scanning. Film must be flat or curl slightly towards the emulsion surface (film should fit in the gauge on top of the adapter). Film cannot be used in the adapter if: there is tape on the film the film has been folded the perforations have been torn the film has been cut on an angle or torn Film that cannot be scanned in the SA-20 can be scanned in the MA-20 slide adapter using the FH-2 film holder (see the LS2000 Reference Manual). Film must be clean and free from fingerprints. In the case of the SA-20, the presence of dirt could cause damage to the film. Before scanning, remove dust with a blower and gently wipe off any finger prints with a soft, dry cloth.

Safety Precautions

Observe the following safety precautions when installing and operating the LS-2000: Do not allow your fingers, hair, or clothing into the film insertion slot Do not insert your fingers, hair, or clothing into the film insertion slot on the front of the scanner when the power is on and a film adapter is in place. Doing so could result in injury. Use an appropriate power supply Use an AC power supply of 50/60Hz and a voltage of from 100V240V. Be sure to use a power cord rated for the appropriate voltage. At voltages of more than AC 125V: use a power cord that complies with the safety standards of the country in which it is used, which has a plug rated for AC 250V, 15A (NEMA 6P-15) and insulation of SVT type or better, and which is more than AWG18 in thickness. At voltages of AC 125V or less: use a power cord that complies with the safety standards of the country in which it is used, which has a plug rated for AC 125V, 10A and insulation of SVT type or better, and which is more than AWG18 in thickness.
Connect the scanner to ground The outlet into which the power cable is plugged must be grounded. Failure to ground the power supply could result in electric shock.
* The shape of the cable may vary depending on the country of sale.
The scanner and all devices to which it is connected must be connected to a common ground. If a common ground is not used, a ground loop could occur, causing electric shock or noise static. Do not ground the outlet to a gas or water pipe.
When handling the power and SCSI cables Unplug the power cable by pulling on the plug, not on the cable itself. Pulling directly on the cord could result in damage that could cause fire or electric shock.
Do not damage or modify the power or SCSI cables. Fire or electric shock may result if the cables are placed under heavy objects, exposed to heat or flame, or forcibly tugged or bent. Should the insulation of the cables become damaged and the wires become exposed, contact your retailer or Nikon service office for information on repair or replacement. Continued use could cause fire or electric shock. Do not plug the power cord into an extension cord or multipleoutlet extension, as this could result in fire or malfunction.
When connecting or disconnecting the SCSI cable, handle the cable by the connector. Do not pull on the cable itself.

Setup: Connecting the SCSI Cable

- 21 -

SCSI devices are connected to the computer in a daisy chain. Up to eight devices, including the computer and any internal SCSI devices such as hard drives and CD-ROM drives, can be connected in a SCSI chain. The first and last devices in the chain must be terminated, i.e., fitted with special circuitry to reduce noise, making the connection more reliable. If the LS-2000 is the last device in the chain, it can be terminated using the termination switch on the rear of the scanner. Except in the case of some laptop computers requiring external terminators, the other end of the chain will be terminated inside the computer, either at the SCSI adapter or at an internal drive. In the case of IBM PC/AT computers with internal SCSI devices, it may be necessary to remove termination from the SCSI adapter board before connecting external devices. To connect the scanner to the SCSI chain, a SCSI cable with a male half-pitch 50-pin connector is required. The other end of the cable must match the connector on the devices to which the scanner is to be connected. For direct connection to most Macintosh computers, a 25-pin D-sub connector will be required (Macintosh laptop computers use a different type of connector). SCSI boards for IBM PC/AT computers will usually be provided with a 25-pin D-sub connector, a 50-pin Centronics connector, or a half-pitch 50-pin connector with the pins arranged in two separate rows or attached to a central finger. If the correct type of cable is not available, an adapter can be attached to one or both ends of the cable. To prevent interference, SCSI cabling should be of a high-impedance type and be as short as possible. The total length of cabling in a SCSI chain must not exceed six meters (twenty feet), but be aware that the reliability of the SCSI interface will drop as the length of the cable increases. Setup: Connecting the SCSI Cable

A SCSI cable is provided with scanners sold in the United States and Canada. If your scanner was purchased in another region, before connecting the SCSI cable you should attach the ferrite core provided with your scanner (the cable provided to customers in the United States and Canada does not require a core). Place the SCSI cable in the center of the open core and close the core tightly. The core should be attached as far as possible from the scanner; i.e., as close as possible to the other device to which the cable is attached. Attach the plastic tie on the scanner side of the core to prevent the core from sliding out of position.
2. Place tie around cable and pull tight

SCSI devices cannot be connected while the power is on. Before connecting the scanner to the SCSI chain, be sure that the computer and all other devices in the chain, including the scanner, are off. How the scanner should be connected to the chain depends on whether it is to be located between other devices or attached at the end of the chain. When the scanner is the last device in the chain Set the terminator switch on the rear of the scanner to ON.
Connect the other end of the cable to the next device in the chain. If the scanner is the only external device in the chain, connect the cable to the computers SCSI port.

Caution: Do not touch the connector pins with your fingers or with metal objects, as this could result in static electricity damaging one or more of the devices in the SCSI chain.
When the scanner is between other devices Set the terminator switch on the rear of the scanner to OFF.
Connect a second SCSI cable to the other of the two connectors on the rear of the scanner, then connect the other end of the cable to another SCSI device. Confirm that the last device in the chain is terminated.

Other SCSI device

Connect one end of the SCSI cable to either of the connectors on the rear of the scanner, then connect the other end to one of the devices in the chain.

SCSI Connection Checklist Turn off the computer, the LS-2000, and all SCSI devices before connecting the scanner. Be sure that the devices at both ends of the SCSI chain are terminated. If the host computer is a Macintosh, the chain will already be terminated at the computer end. In the case of IBM PC/AT compatibles in a chain which contains external devices only, the chain should be terminated at the SCSI board. In the case of a chain which includes internal devices, you may need to remove termination from the board and terminate the last internal device. The maximum number of SCSI devices that can be connected in a single chain is eight, including the computer and any internal SCSI devices such as hard disks or CD-ROM drives. The total length of cabling in the SCSI chain should be no more than six meters (twenty feet). The longer the cabling, the less reliable the connection. When using a SCSI extension board with an IBM PC/AT compatible computer, be sure that you have the latest available driver software for your board. If you experience trouble with SCSI connections, contact the manufacturer to learn whether an updated driver has been released.

Setting the SCSI ID

Each device in the SCSI chain has a unique ID, which is a number between zero and seven that the computer uses to distinguish between different devices. When connecting the LS-2000 to a SCSI chain, the scanners SCSI ID must be set to a number that is not shared by any of the other devices, including the computer itself. The scanners SCSI ID is indicated by the SCSI ID dial on the rear panel. Before the scanner leaves the factory, the ID is set to 2.

SCSI ID 4

When choosing another ID for the scanner, bear in mind that the computer will usually have an ID of either 0 or 7, and that internal hard disks often have IDs of 0 or 1. In the case of Macintosh computers, the computer will have an ID of 7, while the internal hard disk and CD-ROM drive often have IDs of 0 and 3, respectively. In general, it is recommended that you set the scanners ID to any number other than zero, one, three, and seven that is not used by another SCSI device. Caution: Assigning the same ID to two different devices could render the computer system inoperable or result in important data on a hard disk being lost or corrupted.

- 25 -

To change the scanners ID, turn the scanner off. Then, using a screwdriver, turn the dial on the back of the scanner to choose a new ID.
Note: The LS-2000 conforms to Level 1 of the SCAM (SCSI Configuration Auto-Magically) SCSI-selection standard, which allows some computers to set the scanners ID automatically. If your computers operating system supports Plug&Play and the SCSI host (computer or SCSI extension board) conforms to SCAM, the scanner may be automatically assigned an ID which differs from that set using the SCSI ID dial. SCAM will not assign conflicting IDs to SCSI devices.

Using the Scanner
This chapter covers basic scanner operations, from turning the scanner on to replacing adapters and inserting and removing film. Actual scanning is outlined in the Users Guide and described in more detail in the software reference manuals.
Inserting and Removing Adapters
The LS-2000 uses a variety of adapters to scan different types of film. Adapters are provided for scanning single 35 mm slide mounts and 35 mm film in strips of from two to six frames. Other adapters are available separately for scanning IX240 film and for consecutive scanning of 35 mm slides. All of these adapters can be mounted on the scanner while the scanner is on and connected to a computer. To mount an adapter, check that the status LED is glowing steadily. Adapters can not be inserted or removed while the status LED is blinking. Open the scanners front cover and slide the adapter in as shown below, stopping when the adapter is firmly in place.

Turning the Scanner On

Before turning on your computer, turn on the scanner and any other peripheral devices. The scanner is on when the end of the power switch labeled 1 is down.

Power switch on (1 down)

When the scanner is turned on, the status LED will blink while the scanner initializes. Initialization is complete when the LED glows steadily. Once initialization has completed, turn on any other peripheral devices and then start the computer.
(The illustration above shows the slide adapter. The direction of insertion for other adapters is shown below.)
Using the Scanner: Turning the Scanner On

- 27 -

Cautions Wait until the status LED glows steadily or the scanner is off before inserting or removing adapters. Do not replace adapters while the scanner is operating. If an adapter does not slide in smoothly, remove it from the adapter slot and try again. Do not use force.
Using the MA-20 SLIDE MOUNT ADAPTER
When scanning 35 mm slides, insert the slide adapter into the scanner, stopping when the adapter is firmly in place. The adapter should be oriented relative to the scanner as shown in the illustration below.
Inserting slides Film has an emulsion surface and a base; when examined under a light, the emulsion side is dull and the base shiny. Looked at from the base side, the image is exactly as it would appear in a printed photograph, while when seen from the emulsion side, the image is reversed.

When the scanner is installed on its side, insert the slides with the base up and the short side of the aperture facing the scanner. Insert the slide smoothly into the scanner, stopping when it contacts the back of the slot.
The correct orientations for inserting landscape and portrait slides are shown below. If the slides are inserted with the top and bottom of the image reversed, this can be corrected after scanning using the software provided with your scanner. Portrait (tall) slide
If the scanner is installed on its base, the shiny surface of the film should face to the left and the emulsion surface to the right.
Using the Scanner: Using the MA-20 SLIDE MOUNT ADAPTER

- 29 -

Landscape (wide) slide
Do not insert slides with the longer side of the aperture facing the scanner. The scanner will be unable to scan the edges of the film.
Note: The best possible results can be achieved only with clean slides. Before scanning, remove dust from the film with a blower and wipe the slide gently with a soft, dry cloth to remove fingerprints.

- 30 -

Slides can be removed from the scanner by pressing the eject button to eject the slide from the adapter and then pulling the slide the rest of the way out with your fingers.
Cautions Do not attempt to insert or eject slides while scanning is in progress. Do not move the scanner or subject it to shock or vibration while scanning is in progress. Slides must be between 1.0 mm and 3.2 mm in thickness. If the surface of the mount is rough, you may experience some resistance when inserting or removing the slide. Do not leave slides in the adapter for extended periods.

Using the FH-2 to scan strip-film
The SA-20 STRIP FILM ADAPTER is provided to scan 35 mm film in strips of from two to six frames. The SA-20s automatic feed and eject mechanisms however require film that is flat, cut straight across at the ends, free from adhesive tape and has all perforations intact (see Using the SA-20 STRIP FILM ADAPTER, following). Film that cannot be scanned using the SA-20 can be scanned in the MA-20 using the FH-2 strip-film holder provided with your scanner. This section details how to insert film in the FH-2 and scan it using the MA-20. Step 1Open the FH-2 Holding the FH-2 with the Nikon logo facing upwards, unlatch the holder by the snaps and flip it open.
Step 2Place film in the holder Place a strip of 35 mm film on the lower holder, oriented so that the frame numbers are not reversed. Align each frame in the film with an aperture in the lower holder.

The sixth frame will be scanned
The third frame will be scanned

- 33 -

Slide the film holder into the slide adapter until the holder touches the back of the film slot. Do not attempt to force the holder in past the mark.
Cautions If the holder does not slide smoothly into the adapter film slot, remove it from the adapter and try again. Do not use force. The film holder is for use with the MA-20 only. Do not attempt to use the holder with other adapters.

Cautions Do not attempt to insert film while scanning is in progress. Do not remove the adapter or turn the scanner off when there is film in the adapter. Use the driver software provided with your scanner to eject the film. Do not leave film in the adapter for extended periods Do not move the scanner while scanning is in progress. Examine the film carefully prior to scanning. Film cannot be used in the adapter if: there is tape on the film the film has been folded the perforations have been torn the film has been cut on an angle or torn Film that cannot be used in the SA-20 can be scanned with the MA-20 using the FH-2 film holder provided with your scanner (see Using the MA-20 SLIDE MOUNT ADAPTER, above). Film for use in the SA-20 must be clean and free from fingerprints. If there is dirt on the film, damage to the film could result. Before scanning, remove dust with a blower and gently wipe off any finger prints with a soft, dry cloth. What to do if film jams in the adapter If film cannot be ejected from the scanner using the software provided or does not eject automatically after ten minutes have passed with no operation being performed, you will need to remove the film from the adapter by hand. The process for clearing jams is given below. Note: If the SA-20 jams repeatedly, clean the adapter as described in the following section. Using the Scanner: Using the SA-20 STRIP FILM ADAPTER
When no film is visible in the film slot Step 1Remove the adapter from the scanner Wait until the status LED glows steadily, then slide the adapter from the scanner. If the status LED is flashing rapidly, close all programs and turn off the computer, then turn off your scanner and remove the adapter. Step 2Open the adapter With a coin or screwdriver, loosen the screw on top of the adapter and open the top cover.

Step 3Remove the film The jammed film will be visible in the feed mechanism at the rear of the adapter. Grasp the film gently by both edges and pull it slightly upwards, being careful not to damage the film.
Once the end of the film is free, pull the film slowly backwards out of the adapter with one hand while guiding the free end with the other, being sure that the film does not catch on the adapter or other objects. Keep the angle at which film is pulled from the adapter as low as possible to prevent damage to the film. Step 4Close the adapter Close the adapter and, with a coin or screwdriver, tighten the screw on the top of the adapter until the top portion of the adapter is securely in place. When film protrudes from the film slot Step 1Remove the adapter from the scanner

Magazine cover

Slides can be loaded into the feed magazine up to the load mark. Do not attempt to fill the magazine past this point. Once the feed magazine is loaded, release the push plate from the notch and slide it back until rests against the slides.
Feed magazine Notch Push plate Load mark
Close the magazine cover. You are now ready to begin scanning. For details on consecutive scanning of multiple slides, refer to the software reference manual for your platform.

- 43 -

Cautions Slides must be from 1.0 mm to 3.2 mm thick. Mounts with rough surfaces could cause the feeder to jam. Do not use mounts with peeling or burred edges, mounts to which seals or labels have been affixed, or mounts with sharp corners. Such mounts could jam the feeder or cause problems during scanning. Avoid slides with warped mounts. Warped slides may jam if placed in the feeder as shown below.
Slide feeder viewed from above
Do not load slides into the feeder with the longer side of the aperture facing the scanner, as this could damage the film or slide mount or cause the feeder to jam. Insert slides as shown by the insertion guide sticker next to the feed magazine (see illustration on page 43).
Insertion guide sticker To LS-2000

Warped slide mount

Do not load slides in the feed magazine past the load mark, as this may cause the feeder to jam. Do not move the scanner while scanning is in progress. Remove scanned slides from the ejection magazine before the magazine is full. Continuing scanning when there is no room left in the ejection magazine could jam the feeder. Do not remove the feeder while scanning is in progress. Before turning the scanner off or removing the feeder, make sure that all slides have been removed from the magazine and that the last slide to be fed has been ejected.
The feeder does not function equally well with all makes of slide mount. Makes that have projecting parts or are not of an even thickness may jam in the feeder.

- 44 -

Removing slides Slides will be sent to the ejection magazine after scanning. To remove slides from the ejection magazine, pull back the push plate and remove the slides. Slides must be removed before the ejection magazine fills up. Using the feed-mechanism attachment
The attachment utility window will appear on the desktop. If more than one scanner is attached to your computer and powered on, select the scanner to which the SF-200 is attached from the select a scanner pop-up menu.
Thick mounts (over 2 mm thick) with rounded edges may not feed properly when used with the SF-200. A removable plastic part is provided for attachment to the feed mechanism, enabling the scanner to feed such slides. A special attachment utility program, provided with the Nikon Scan software that came with your scanner, is required both when attaching this part to Open the SF-200s magazine cover, pull back the feed pushand removing it from the feed mechanism. plate to the end of its grove, and hook it in the notch so that it To attach the feed-mechanism attachment, both your scanner does not spring back to its original position. and computer must be on.

Maintenance
This chapter describes how to clean, store, and transport the LS-2000.

Storage

When you do not plan to use the scanner for an extended period of time, remove any film that may be in the adapters and take the adapters out of the adapter slot. Turn off the scanner, unplug it, and disconnect it from the computer. Close the sliding cover to prevent the accumulation of dust inside the adapter slot. Store the LS-2000 in a dry, well-ventilated environment, away from electronic equipment such as televisions or radios which produce strong magnetic fields. Do not store the scanner where the temperature exceeds 60C (140F) or goes below -20C (-4F), or where the relative humidity falls below 20% or exceeds 90%.

Cleaning

Before cleaning the scanner, turn it off and unplug the power cord. Remove adapters from the scanner before cleaning them. The exterior of the adapters and the front of the scanner are made of plastic, and consequently cannot be cleaned with volatile cleaners such as alcohol or paint thinner. Use a blower to blow off dust or wipe the surface with a dry cloth. Remove dirt from the metal rear panel of the scanner using a soft, dry cloth. If this is not sufficient to remove all dirt, clean with a cloth that has been slightly dampened with a neutral detergent or liquid soap. Cautions Do not use water or a volatile liquid such as alcohol, benzine, or thinner. Should any of these liquids come in contact with the interior of the scanner, fire, electric shock, or malfunction could result. Volatile liquids such as alcohol, benzine, or thinner could stain the exterior of the scanner and adapters. Periodically unplug the power and SCSI cables and wipe the dust off with a damp cloth. Do not allow dust to collect on the plug, as this could cause fire.

Are both ends of the SCSI chain terminated? If the SCSI chain is not properly terminated, you will experience intermittent problems with all SCSI devices. The chain must be terminated at both ends: if you have a IBM PC/AT compatible with a SCSI expansion board and no internal SCSI devices, check that the board is terminated (refer to the manufacturers manual). If you are using an IBM PC/AT compatible with a SCSI expansion board and internal SCSI devices, remove termination from the board and terminate the last internal device in the chain. If the scanner is connected at the end of the chain, set the terminator switch to ON. If the scanner is connected between other SCSI devices, terminate the last device in the chain and set the terminator switch on the scanner to OFF. If there is an unused SCSI connector at the end of the chain, place an independent terminator on this connector even if the device is connected to the chain using a through terminator. See Setup in this manual. Does the cabling total more than six meters in length? For a reliable connection, SCSI cabling should be as short as possible. Use short, high-impedance cables. Is the scanners ID the same as that of another SCSI device? Each SCSI device must have a unique ID. Set the scanners ID to a number not used by any other devices in the chain. Remember that the computer is assigned an ID, usually 0 or 7, while internal hard disks often have IDs of 0 or 1. In the case of Macintosh computers, the host computer has an ID of 7 while 0 and 3 may be assigned to an internal hard disk or CD-ROM drive.
