My ad is for the professional cleaning of the internals of your Polaroid Sprintscan 4000 35mm film scanner


Signs of dirty optics
1. Pictures have haze
2. Bright areas have a "glow"
3. Lack of Detail
4. Blurry images
5. Colors are not vivid
6. Boot-up issues
7. Scanner may act confused with extensive internal debris/dust

Let's face it- some people take things apart and always have a screw or two left over. Let a pro clean and calibrate it.

If your scanner doesn't function - email me first

30+ years of computer, electronics and repair experience.

Thinking of buying a $3000 scanner when you have a good one already that beats the others in many reviews? Excellent color accuracy and level of detail in shadows, supported by many software packages. Almost no noise/speckling in shadow areas. Polaroid made a very good product- you bought it, and you wish it worked like it did before. Many of the newer scanners have poor CCD sensors which add speckling/noise to dark areas- then they add features to reduce the noise and dust and image artifacts. SHeeesh. See with Polaroid, you didn't have all that speckling to begin with. Of course, that was when it was clean internally.

Only problem- dirty optics? No problem.

Not sure if yours needs cleaning? - Send a scan by email I'll take a look.

Got a question? Send email or phone.
