[filmscanners] Re: Cleaning LS2000 optic?



There was reference by someone here... ages ago... with regard to cleaning a
Nikon 4000ED. I posted a question as to how it was done and never got a
reply... so, just in case someone here knows the feasibility of cleaning
that particular scanner... would appreciate a feedback.... (it's a major
hassle for me to send it to a Nikon service centre as there's none where i
live....)

Thanks....

Sounds its most likely a dirty mirror which needs cleaning which is what
happened to mine. I have cleaned mine which resolved the problem. Heaps of
dust collects on and in the scanner if you like it or not.

order before I do so, and I've noticed it flares visibly with some scans- I
assume the lens needs cleaning. Can anyone tell me anything about this- is
it straightforward? Is it as simple as removing the cover and there the lens
is in front of you, visible and accessible? TIA for any info.
