Question about Samsung SCX-5115 Fax Machines

Open Question

Can not scan

I installed a Samsung SCX-5115 printer onto a win XP machine, and can NOT get anything to scan. Initially I was receiving various twain error messages, so I downloaded the latest software and drivers from Samsung's website, uninstalled the old, and installed the new.

Now I am able to print, but the computer simply hangs whenever I try to scan a document. I tried scanning through Smart Thru 3, and a third party utility, nothing works.

    Actually, it looks like i'm still getting the following windows error message:

    "...TWAIN is not available

    please be sure that you have drivers for your scanner installed..."

    I've restarted multiple times, to no avail.

    Have the same problem. It will not scan to computer. Downloaded the scan drivers but still no go. :-(

    After you put the Twain drivers in, did you restart your computer?

SOURCE: ADF not working for TWAIN APIs

I need a little more description. Does the ADF handles the first page, or no page at all? Keep in mind that Samsung designs its own scanning application (SmartThru). Also check that the connection (parallel or USB) is correctly configured on your app.

SOURCE: problem scanning with samsung scx 4521f

My connection is via a parallel to parallel cable, and I am also having a similar problem. I'm reading that usb to usb cable is the only way it will properly function. good luck with it!

SOURCE: SCX 4100 scanner problems

In the SmartThru application, find the devices connected list (usually on the upper right corner at the main screen). Select the SCX-4100 from the list, since this software will work with many scanners. After selecting the unit, close and restart the program.

Be blessed.

Are you sure it's not "unlock scanner", or similar? There is often a scanner lock located under the document feeder cover, usually on the left side of the contact glass, that you can engage for moving the machine. Check to see if it is locked.

Over heating


How old is machine, many times the vents and ribs that around the machine get filled with dust. Buy a can of CANNED AIR, unplug machine lift covers off and blow out these vents.

No Power - DOA


Mike,

If there are burn spots on the power board, then it is shot. Go to www.eserviceinfo.com to get a manual, most likely they'll have one there. I service all makes and models of printers, faxes and copiers, they usually have what I am looking for.
