    You say XP crashed - what did you do to recover? What were you doing when XP crashed? Does the unit still print? Copy?

Click on Scanner Manager
Select your printer
Hit on Properties
Hit OK
Now your PC will appear on printer menu.

In my opinion it is a Samsung fail

Hi I have just bought a Samsung CLX-3170FN I want to scan to pdf but it does not give me the option to. What do I need to do? Thanks Chris


Hi chris80127
You can use a third party twain software such as : http://www.irfanview.com/
You will need to download all the plugins in order to scan directly to pdf but it works fine .
Best regards ,

Can not find the imaging unit for samsung CLX 3170. Do not know how to fix it. Printer says to to replace it soon.


Please have a look at the links below; each includes a short video to help explain the process. You should order an imaging unit to have on hand for replacement. At the end are included the product number for your consumables. Suggest you find a local supplier or seacrh on-line for a competive price or you can opt to puchase directly from Samsung.

I could not find information specific to your model on the proper relacements for the imaging unit and toner cartridges; however, I was able to find a statement that the CLX-3170FN and CLX-3175FN are the same printer the main difference is just the colour of the unit. They should therefore use the same imaging unit and toner cartridges which I have listed below:

CLT-M409S Magenta
CLT-C409S Cyan
CLT-K409S Black
CLT-R409 Imaging Unit
CLT-W409 Waste Toner Collector
CLT-Y409S Yellow

Could be the Software/firmware does not know the other commands that you printing software on computer are sending to it. Check the firmware on print server for any updates.

Multi-function Samsung CLX-3175 doesn't scan to PC


I had the same issue with Windows 7 64 bit.I managed to solve it by doing the following
1. Locate the scan2pc.exe program in C:\Windows\twain_32\Samsung\CLX3170 2. Right-click/properties - Compatibility tab. 3.Set compatibility to win xp. Set "Run as Administrator"
I also added the scan2pc.exe to the firewall allowed programs (did that for scanmgr.exe as well, but I don't think I needed to).
Works great now!
Good luck!!

Samsung CLX-3170FN won't work on my Eee PC 4G


This printer is not designed for linux operating system, It is for a PC for microsoft OS or mac OS and it comes with the drivers to perform that operation. Samsung CLX-3170FN is a multifunctional device that request drivers to perform Functions with your windows os or mac os. NOT LINUX! CHANGE THE OPERATING SYSTEM!, that's the solution and you do not have search for PPd, all resolutions are in the os settings.
