Question about Samsung SCX 4200 All-In-One Laser Printer

1 Answer

Scanning Using the wizard on my SCX 4200, I can't find any way to control the size of the scanned text copy or the font size. Also, when scanning a half page of text, the font size is greatly increased and no matter whether I select Portrait or Landscape, it comes out in Landscape. Can anyone help?

Re: Scanning

Check your printer settings and make sure that "fit to page" is not selected.

How to scan into my computer

Hello, I am happy to help you with your question. Samsung SCX-4200 supplies software calls Samsung Smarthru. This software application includes a scan command. The software is locagted on the CD that accompanied the printer.

Here are some excerpts from the manual:

Your machine offers the following ways to scan an image:

• From TWAIN-compliant software: You can use other

software including Adobe Photoshop Deluxe and Adobe


• From the Windows images Acquisition (WIA) driver: Your

machine supports the WIA driver for scanning images.

• From the Samsung SmarThru software: Launch Samsung

SmarThru and open Scan To to begin scanning.

NOTE: To scan with your machine, you must install the

Loading document

You can use the document glass to load an original document

for copying and scanning.

1 Lift and open the document cover.

2 Place the document face down on the document glass

and align it with the registration guide at the top left

corner of the glass.

3 Close the document cover. Be careful not to move the



• Leaving the document cover open while copying may affect

copy quality and toner consumption.

So, basically, if you have the software installed. Open the Smarthru software, load your original onto the glass, face down, and close the lid. Select scan, the software may provide you with a preview of the scanned image. Once you scan the document, you must save it to a location on your hard drive, often it is called "My Scans" in your "my documents" file.

I hope that this is helpful. I have attached a link directly to the Samsung website manual for your model

Sharing with Samba/Cups

To my best knowledge, you cannot. The drivers and scanning software on your unit are not designed to support network protocols. Your unit does not come with an Ethernet adapter and it is not available as an option. When Samsung fits an equipment with a network card (such as the SCX-4521FN) the drivers and software are enabled for network use. By the way, your toner will only last for 3,000 pages. Are you sure it's a good idea to share such such a small unit over a 10 PC network?

Noise during scanning

Not really these are sealed units - nothing to repair. If it works grit your teeth and bear it. If you open it up and try to lubricate the offending parts the chances are you will kill it dead.
