Question about Samsung SCX-5115 Fax Machines
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.
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.

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!

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.

Tips for a great answer:
Your machine offers the following ways to scan an image:
• From TWAIN-compliant software: You can use other
software including Adobe Photoshop Deluxe and Adobe

machine supports the WIA driver for scanning images.
• From the Samsung SmarThru software: Launch Samsung
SmarThru and open Scan To to begin scanning.
NOTE: To scan with your machine, you must install the
You can use the document glass to load an original document
for copying and scanning.
1 Lift and open the document cover.
2 Place the document face down on the document glass
and align it with the registration guide at the top left
corner of the glass.
3 Close the document cover. Be careful not to move the
• Leaving the document cover open while copying may affect
copy quality and toner consumption.
So, basically, if you have the software installed. Open the Smarthru software, load your original onto the glass, face down, and close the lid. Select scan, the software may provide you with a preview of the scanned image. Once you scan the document, you must save it to a location on your hard drive, often it is called "My Scans" in your "my documents" file.
I hope that this is helpful. I have attached a link directly to the Samsung website manual for your model
