    I just bought a new 20" iMac running OSX 10.5.4  and after installing the Samsung drivers from the CD and also from their website - I have the identical problem.   The print queue dialog pops up on the Mac, the green light blinks on the Samsung device.. the motor whirls.. then.. nothing.   The print job disappears from the queue but no paper is forthcoming from the printer... any solutions out there???

    We have an apple network with a time capsule as the router. At the beginning we used to print directly from the computer, and it worked, now we connected the printer to the TC and sometimes it worked, and sometimes the printer decides to respond hours later. We tried to connect the printer directly to the computer again, but now it is not responding at all any more. I updated the drivers but this does not seem to help either...

I fixed the problem by downloading other Samsung drivers from the Samsung websiet.  In the end I think it was the SCX 4300 driver that worked.

Managed to solve the problem, through choosing add another printer (in the box, after choosing Print). Then my Mac looked automatically for drivers, which this time worked (the ones installed from CD and downloaded from www.samsung.com didn't)

Just brought my SCX 4100 into use in my office, worked perfectly at home on a Windows XP system but in the office on a vista system the printer works fine, the copy function within smart thru 4 functions...


Did you install the correct driver including the scan driver? The drivers are available at the Samsung Site: http://www.samsung.com/us/support/downloads/SCX-4100 . Click on the Driver tab for most or the Software Tab for the SmarThru4 program. Make sure to get the correct version for the OS on the office computer. Generic OS drivers often only run the printe, not the scanner. Uninstall the generic driver before attempting to nstall the Samsung driver.

Next check the data cable. Scanners require bi-directional communication with the computer and can fail when the printer works.

I hope this helps.

I/O error when trying to scan. Used to work OK


Good day Sir,
These are my suggested solutions.
  • There ma be a copying or printing job in progress. When the job is complete, try your job again.
  • The selected port is currently being used. Restart your computer and try again.
  • The scanner driver is not installed or the operating environment is not setup properly.
  • Ensure that the machine is properly connected and the power is on, then restart your computer.
  • The USB cable may be improperly connected or the power may be off.
Thank you and God bless.

SCX-4200 cannot make multiple copies


I believe on this unit that when you increase the # of copies, you have to press the set or enter button to accept the amount, then press copy. Most small Samsungs are like that.
