Cnecting to a computer

What OS is installed on your computer? The Samsung SCX-6220 is listed as compatible with several versions of Windows, including Win7 x64. The drivers for the SCX-6220 are the same as those here: . You'll need the appropriate printer and scanner drivers for the OS and the SmarThru software (two different tabs under the Manuals and Downloads tab).

Then use the USB or parallel printer port depending on your computer (for Windows only Win98+ supported USB) and the cables you have available. The USB port is below the telephone jacks and the parallel port along the side of the telephone jacks. All of the ports are on the left side. A network card can be installed on the back of the printer.

I hope this helps.

Samsung scx-4100 scanner error - cannot detect device "Samsung.."

I just fixed this problem for my computer. Try installing the scanner driver. You probably have the printer driver installed but the scanner driver is needed for Smarthru

Can't scan documents

For the system to work completely; you need the print driver, scan driver and smarthru4.

Once you install the scan driver (available on Samsung website); the issue will go away.

Also, another trick; instead of using the smart thru - which is kind of awkward, download Picasa 3 and if you have installed the scan driver correctly, you can use Picasa to import the scans by controlling the printer. It also allws for some other tweaks that are not so easy to get to in Smart Thru.

In addition to Picasa you can use several other graphic applications to scan the image.

Good luck.

Problem scanning with samsung scx 4521f


Sorry to have missed your initial posting...

In any case, to my understanding, this particular printer is likewise capable of USB connection. Perhaps you can try connecting it pure USB and go through the installation again. this might simplify interface and communications between notebook and scanner/printer.

If for some reason you would want to retain Printer/Parallel to Notebook/USB, you need to check your Imaging Devices in the notebook's Device Manager and verify that all drivers are installed for the Samsung SCX-4521F. There should be no yellow or red marks. If there are or if the Samsung SCX-4521F instance is not present, you may need to reinstall using the Add Hardware Option in the Control Panel. You may need to manually select the imaging device/scanner. This holds true if you are using Windows XP.

If you are using Vista, you may need to download all the Vista drivers from the Samsung website. Further, pls be informed that to my knowledge, Vista has certain issues with USB ports. Microsoft has issued a patch/update specifically for this concern. It may be downloaded from here or here.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Cannot print from Lap top using usb adapter to cannon printer.

It sounds that your problem might be on the USB to paralel adapter. Do you have another printer ti try it with ? Check the configuration for this adapter.
Good luck
