Any techies out there? I've just got an HP 4500C which is an excellent bit
of kit, but want to use it
with a full size light box. I can't see anything in the existing HP
software to allow this and assume that it autodetects the presence of the
transparent materials adapter when plugged in. The manual says that for
anything bigger than the standard TMA add-on the slides or negs should be
scanned against a white sheet, using the internal light ,but this distorts
the colour values and contrast (the latter especially on B&W as the silver
in the emulsion reflects light) and any dust or watermarks show up
strongly.HP support couldn't help, suggesting that I write to Palo Alto.
Circuit diagrams and pin-outs are not apparently available
Can anyone out there suggest a method - software fix or perhaps a dummy TMA
plug configuration - that will allow me to scan without the internal lamp
Any help would be appreciated.
