Question about Samsung SCX 4200 All-In-One Laser Printer

1 Answer

SCX-4200 cannot make multiple copies

I have been sent a replacement unit and this unit is the same.
If you put something on the flatbaed scanner and make a single copy it works, press the copies button a few times or use arrow buttons to increase the number of copies and press start and nothing happens.

I am expecting my 3rd unit shortly. Can someone else confirm my problem.

    You are on the money here, the button you have to push before pressing "Start" is marked OK and is between the left and right arrow keys. Once you press OK then you can press "Start"

    The Samsung Documentation on thier support site does not state this, only to select the number or copies with the arrows and press start.

    Thank you !

I believe on this unit that when you increase the # of copies, you have to press the set or enter button to accept the amount, then press copy. Most small Samsungs are like that.

Sharing with Samba/Cups

To my best knowledge, you cannot. The drivers and scanning software on your unit are not designed to support network protocols. Your unit does not come with an Ethernet adapter and it is not available as an option. When Samsung fits an equipment with a network card (such as the SCX-4521FN) the drivers and software are enabled for network use. By the way, your toner will only last for 3,000 pages. Are you sure it's a good idea to share such such a small unit over a 10 PC network?
