  • Hi Tony,
    
    
    Let me offer you lots of encouragement on that SS4000 DIY page.  Mine has
    been idle for 2+ years as well except for a similar initialization failure
    months ago.
    
    Thanks in advance.
    Bob G

    Sorry for the slow response.
    
    I'd hazard a guess that in 3 or so years of disuse, either lubricant on
    the carriage mechanism has dried out so the scanner motors are unable to
    rack the carriage through initialisation, or you have a poor plug
    connection.
    
    I will be putting up a page about DIY servicing of the '4000 ASAP which
    may help. I didn't plan to, but mine just threw a wobbly right when I was
    on deadline to scan some 1983 negs, and I *had* to fix it, and this time
    took a few photos whilst it was apart.
