Network Scan - Samsung CLX-3160FN

I am completely set up to print over the network.  Our network administrator has set up all of the network utilities on his Windows machine.  However, when Network Scan is selected, I receive the message "Not Available" on the printer's display.  
A side problem, I am unable to access my printer's Smart Panel on my MacBook Pro 10.5.2

Samsung tech support isn't much help either! what I found with their network card is that it is on and off. The smartthru panel on the desktop (XP Pro SP3), if you watch closely, it can't poll the information everytime.

Couldn't scan from the printer to the computer

I got the same thing when I tried it on my machine. I use the SmarThru web admin program to scan to the network. It should have come with your machine on a disk. If you can't find the disk, this link should allow you to download it.

Hope this helps you.

My Samsung CLX-3160FN has stopped printing colour. I have changed all the cartridges and it will copy in colour, but prints in black and white.

You need to check your document print settings on your PC. Drill through the printer properties menu until you get to the colour settings. At a guess you currently have it set to "Greyscale" rather than colour or auto.

No communication between scanner and computer - Printer is ok

It may or may not work, but try installing as Administrator and setting the program's EXE into "Compatability Mode for XP SP2",and also, running as Administrator. Windows Vista often just doesn't want to support any hardware over like a a couple of years old... Drivers are a HUGE issue. Especially for older stuff. Compatability Mode is one way round it but not always.

My Samsung CLX-6200 Network MFP printer prints but does not scan

Hmm Tricky,
You could try temporaily disabling the windows firewall, and any anti-virus firewalls to see if they are blocking communications to the scanner.
(Please rate my answer thanks :)

Replace your USB cable with a good quality, thick USB cable that does not exceed 10ft. Let me know if the problem persists.

Be blessed.

Network scanning Samsung CLX-3160FN All-In-One Printer

You have to start Smarthru 4 and use it from there. First you have to find the scanner with Smarthu then scan. Play with Smarthru and the settings in it. It took some playing with it for me to get it set right. Now it works just fine.

2) Scanner Locked, there's a lock underneath the scanner bed,make sure it's fully released.
