Question about Samsung SCX-4500 Laser Printer
I'm not using WiFi, but the principle is the same if the issue is "PC Not Available" when you press the "Scan to PC" button, with USB, Ethernet, or WiFi connected printers.
Left click on the up arrow at the right hand side of the tool bar by the clock to show the "Hidden Icons." Right click on the icon for the Samsung printer, and select the
The scan to pc needs the path set properly. In my case, it was to "My Documents," but the "Scan and Fax Manager."
Click on the center top option for "Set Scan Button." Look at the right hand box for the destination listed. Mine was "My Documents."
Now look down half way in the window to the left for "Scan Property." Note the "Save Location" that is listed. In my case it was "My Scans," which is a sub folder of "My Documents" but the printer could not connetect to the sub folder. So, I clicked on the yellow folder to the right to select a different path. On the pop up window, click on its yellow folder and select the "My Documents" folder under the proper user's name, and then click okay. The path should now read c:\User\<username here>\Documents. Click okay.
Now when you press the Scan to PC button, it can find the path to the standard windows folder and not give the error of "PC Not Available."
The troubleshooting guide said to simply check the port. LOL. I'll work on seeing if I can get a sub folder to work later, but for now it's working okay. Hope this helps someone.
