You need to completely delete and reinstall your drivers and Smart Panel software. Delete the printer from the [Printers & Faxes] menu in [Control Panel]. After that, go again into [Control Panel], then into [Add Remove Programs] and search (in alphabetical order) for the Samsung Status Monitor. Thenclick on [Remove].

After you are finished, reinstall from the original CD keeping in mind not to connect the unit untill the installation procedure tells you to do so.

Be blessed.

I don't know how long it takes for a solution to appear here. I posted one, then had to login, so not sure it got posted.

Anyway, the problem is the Windows firewall program, or any firewall program running on your local computer. The samsung monitor has two-way communication with the computer, and the firewall will stop the communication, which is why it appears to be non-responsive, when in fact it is disallowed from responding.

Turn off the Windows firewall and use a hardware router to isolate your LAN from the WAN. I posted a more complete answer, if it appears, then I won't need to elaborate further.

    Here is more info

    On the router, select an internal address other than the default, which is usually

    Use one of the approved PRIVATE address blocks from this list - - -

    Also, choose one that ends with .1, for example and use a netmask of so the LAN has 255 local addresses (Class C subnet).

    Then hand out addresses from and hand out 50 addresses, enough for most SOHO (Small Office Home Office) networks.

    This is more secure, in my opinion, than running Windows Firewall, or any firewall on the computer itself, especially when your LAN has active devices on it (like the samsung printer, or a network attached storage device) that need to communicate to and from your computer. The Windows Firewall interferes with this, and caused me the same problem you are describing.

    Reinstalling the software may help, but I doubt it. Just remove the WIndows Firewall.

    If you are tired of seeing the Windows popup about how your machine is at risk, go to the control panel, run the Security Center application, turn off the firewall and under the Resources area on the left, "change the way Security Center alerts me" and remove the checkmark from the firewall, or the other items if you wish.

    If that doesn't fix the problem, go ahead and turn on the firewall and try to solve the problem another way. I ended up with McAfee personal firewall, and it does NOT interfere with my LAN access, and the firewall sort of comes automatically with the virus protection built into McAfee.

    Whatever you do, get a router between your LAN and the public WAN, that's a minimum requirement for safe use of the internet.
