[filmscanners] Re: Polaroid SS4000 - Delay in calibratingscanner...

Hi Vasilis,

You can always try reinstalling the software and the firmware in the
scanner.  The film carrier is heavier, and if something is not grasping
the carrier tightly enough, it may slip more easily than the slide carrier.

If there is any slippage, the calibration will be delayed because the
scanner needs to get the carrier in place so that the front cut out is
positioned in the scanner to allow for light to go through that window
for each calibration.  There are both gross and fine movements made and
if the gross movement is slipping, it can take time to get positioned
correctly for calibration.
