Scan not scan to pc or email

I have updated the smarthru4 software and the printer driver and I can not scan to pc or email. I keep getting hardware io error. Is this because I have the printer attached to my computer with a lpt cable vs a usb cable?

Deifinetly. Scanning only works through the USB cable. Make sure you buy a good quality one. And do not exceed 10 ft length without using a USB active repeater extension cable.

Can't find printer driver for panasonic kx-p1121 windows xp


HI.................... NEED Panasonic KX KX-P1121 Printer Drivers???

panasonic_091012_021220_128.png NOTICE: Panasonic's current KX KX-P1121 driver release resolves driver conflicts, improves your computer's stability and restores communication with all KX Printers. The newly released KX KX-P1121 drivers are a high priority update recommended for all Panasonic users.


Description Version Estimated Download Time KX KX-P1121 Driver
(Includes, WHQL certified drivers)
Current as of

512K: < 1m download.pngDownload

  3. Click "Run" Again

Locating updated drivers is easy! driver_manufacturer_123.png driver_select_4.png Download Drivers New Version Of Windows? No Problem!
Upgrade smoothly by finding the correct drivers for your KX KX-P1121 printer for Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7. For the first time, users can upgrade with confidence knowing that their computer will run smoothly thanks to the latest drivers and updates required for a perfect upgrade.

Why Updating Drivers Is Important
Usually the only reason we look to install or update drivers is because something is malfunctioning. This is not the only reason you should keep your drivers up to date however. Panasonic is constantly tuning and improving performance of their KX KX-P1121 printers and the only way to make use of this is by having the latest drivers. Going online and checking for new drivers all the time can be frustrating and is not an effective use of your time, and a simple tool like the driver installer above can keep all of your hardware running on the optimal drivers with top performance.

Sometimes when new hardware is installed, although it works correctly, other hardware which interacts with it may not be, because the other hardware actually needs its own drivers updated. This kind of co-dependency is another common problem and a reason why it's a great idea to have a tool that is constantly monitoring the state of all of your drivers and updating appropriately so you can upgrade and add or remove components in your computer while continuing to run without a hitch.

When your KX printer is relatively new, it may be possible to download individual drivers directly from Panasonic without incurring additional charges. If you are having problems locating the correct drivers for your Printer printer, or are unsure of the exact model, we suggest you run a system KX scan first. It's very important you know the exact model of your Panasonic KX KX-P1121 printer you would like to update to ensure that it will function properly and to prevent possible damage to your system. Click here to download an installer that will automatically scan and identify your Panasonic to make sure you are installing the correct update and will also locate and download any additional driver and bios updates your pc may need.

Can't get the scanner to work


Check if it's a hardware, software or a USB connection problem.
If you are able to make a copy using the Copy button on the printer operator panel, then hardware is good.
Try to disconnect and reconnect the printer into your computer.
Then send a print job. If print job is sent successfully, then USB connection is good.
Try to update your printer driver by reinstalling the printer software. If you are scanning a document for editing, make sure the Lexmark OCR scan software is installed on your computer. The scan software is avialable only on the installation disc that came with your printer.
If problem continues, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center to further troubleshoot this problem.

Hi, I use SmarThru 4 but it has a problem saving .pfd files to certain directories on a network drive... the file is placed there OK, but the PC running SmarThru4 completely freezes.


Start Smarthru4, open task manager (ctrl-shift-esc), locate task controlpanel.exe (which is smarthru4), right click, set priority, low.
You should now be able to use smarthru4 without the PC freezing. It works for me. Why? I do not know.

If I scan A4 dokument with SmartThru4, everything goes well as usual, but in the end I get only blank white page, so it scans document, but cannot show the image of scanned A4 . Also if I copy A4 text...


For the system to work completely; you need the printer 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 allows 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.

Are you referring to the Options that Printer would provide from its Screen ? Like Scan to Email, Scan to Document ?

If so, it is likely that the drivers are corrupted or there is no 2 way communication between the printer and PC

Open Solution Center on PC
click on Setting
Click on Scan to Buttons
Click on Destination list
Check if the Right panel is empty or full.
IF Empty, Select the options you want from Left panel and set it on Right panel

IF the Panel is Not Empty, You would need to uninstall and reinstall the software as some updates have failed or some updates were not correctly installed

To uninstall the Software, you can run the software disk and click uninstall ( later restart the PC )

To download the latest Software drivers for your printer, click on this link and choose the operating system and download the full feature software and start the installation

check out the windows site @ www.microsoft.com/WINDOWS/

honestly, before you download any updates, i would try a complete uninstall/reinstall of the the printer and all it's drivers. windows vista is pretty retarded when it comes to installing programs/software/hardware and likes to "forget" the correct way of operating, which means that you find yourself having to reinstall things a second time.

I need free version of scx 4300 driver


http://www.samsung.com/us/consumer/office/printers-multifunction/black-and-white-multifunction-printers/SCX-4300/XAA/index.idx?pagetype=prd_detail&tab=support


Copy and paste that link into your browser. All drivers are always free, by the way. When you get to the web site, scroll down just below the picture of the printer, then click Driver. More than likely you will need the 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th ones in the list. Download those files, then open them and install the drivers. After that, you may need to restart your computer. Don't restart yet. Click Software, and download SmarThru4 if you need that as well, which you just might. You can also download the manual for your printer if you wish. After you've downloaded SmarThru4 and the manual if you did so, and installed SmarThru4 if you got it, restart your computer. Your printer should now be working fine. Please let me know how it goes, and please be as detailed as possible.
