    The User Guide offers no steps beyond the basics....and then nothing.
    I am using Mac OS X, networked to the printer. Printing is OK, incoming faxes received OK.

    I had a jam when trying to scan. After clearing the jam, the scanner won't start when I hit the Enter key.

You have to scan through your computer printers/scanners area. I had this problem, too, but that seemed to fix it for me.

    How do you scan with Samsung SCX-4725fn?

    Having encountered this issue, I read the manual. The only way I found it to work was to press scan and then choose the application that you want to use. I normally just choose scan to Paint. Then launch Paint on your pc, Go to File and select From Scanner and Camera and your image will appear in Paint. (not the easiest scan method in the world but it works; I have tried selecting the other applications on the scanner menu but haven't had any success.
