Sounds like you are using an incandescent lamp as your light source?

For best results using a digicam with a slide copier I'd suggest that you buy yourself one of those lights that uses a daylight bulb. Or just buy a daylight bulb for your table lamp. Daylight bulb may also be called "full spectrum"

And you can also try manually setting your white balance. Select the manual white balance option and do it with no slide in the copier while it is illuminated by whatever light you are using normally.

And finally, try using the slide copier by a well-lit window with outside daylight if using the camera on Auto white balance.
