Sorry my scaner not working but printer will be working please tell me whats wrong


  1. The firewall must allow the following traffic.
    • TCP on ports 9400 and 9401
    • UDP on port 6000
  2. Make sure Scan Manager is configured for the correct IP address of the printer. If Scan Manager will not launch from SmartPanel and it does not show up in Control Panel, check <WindowsDirectory>\twain_32\Samsung. Without Scan Manager installed the printer will not be able to scan to PC.

To use Scan Manager you will need to have installed and configured the following items:

  • Installed the Print Driver, including the Smart Panel application
  • Installed the Scan Driver, including the Scan Manager application
  • Have an active connection between the Printer and PC

Important: If you don't have these items in place, stop now and perform the installation.


To scan to the PC using Scan Manager, follow these steps:

  1. Right click Smart Panel in the task bar, and then select Scan Manager. (Scan Manager Admin dialog appears)
  2. namo_fileview.jsp?type=nfs&pid=decisiontree&did=151998&cid=bdbe6a5u2kt1@namo.co.kr&sep=%7c

  1. Select the Printer you want to use, and then click Quick Scan. (Quick Scan dialog appears)
  2. namo_fileview.jsp?type=nfs&pid=decisiontree&did=151998&cid=pdq8czuzqk7f@namo.co.kr&sep=%7c

  1. Once the Quick Scan dialog appears set the following parameters:
    • Save Location - To change the default location click the Folder Icon to Browse for Folder.
    • File Name - The default file name is the date and time the scan is performed. To change the File Name, select the File Name field.
    • File Format - The file type selected will be the default file type for each consecutive scan. Select from the following formats. (TIFF, PDF, BMP, and JPG)

    namo_fileview.jsp?type=nfs&pid=decisiontree&did=151998&cid=q0imt82cnhs9@namo.co.kr&sep=%7c

  1. After entering the previous information, click OK. (Scan Manager appears)
  2. namo_fileview.jsp?type=nfs&pid=decisiontree&did=151998&cid=1oy6sc87xa6m@namo.co.kr&sep=%7c

  1. Click Scan to scan the document to the PC.
  2. namo_fileview.jsp?type=nfs&pid=decisiontree&did=151998&cid=45q4kejs8a31@namo.co.kr&sep=%7c

For additional information about Scan Managers' features and settings, click the question mark icon (?) at the top of the application window.

I had the same problem and it was making me crazy. I finally realized, that you have to open MP Navigator, go to scan, go to preferences, and there under the general tab at the top where it says select printer, you have to select the networked name of your printer/scanner and not the default name, which is the same at the beginning so easy to overlook. (of course you have to have set up the network first)

Currently working on XEROX WorkCentre Pro 55. Want to scan documents to my computer from newwork printer. What do I need to set up in order to utilize this feature. I tried scanning to a programed user...


> Support & Drivers > WorkCentre Pro 55 Support > Search Results Solution: Set up Network Scanning Using Server Message Block (SMB) Filing With CentreWare Network Scanning Software v 5.5x bttn_print.gifMake Printable bttn_email.gifEmail this page elem_1_spacer.gif Prerequisites:
  • The printer must be connected to the network.
  • The IP Address of the printer is required, and the HTTP option must be enabled on the printer. If you do not know the IP Address, or whether HTTP is enabled, print a Configuration Report. See the Related Items below for additional information. If you do not have this information or the printer is not configured correctly, contact your System Administrator for assistance.
  • A user account for the scanner to login to the scan server must be created (account needs full control access rights). The user needs to be a local user on the workstation and not a domain user.

    NOTE: SMB uses local rights and not domain rights. Record the username and password for future use.

  • A directory to be used as a repository for the scanned files must be created. The directory must then be shared.
  • The Hostname of the workstation must be known.
  • CentreWare 5.5x must be installed on a Microsoft Windows server or workstation on the network.
From the workstation or server where CentreWare is installed:
  1. Click on [Start], point to [Programs], select [Xerox CentreWare], and then select [Add Network Scanner]. The Add Network Scanner Wizard window will be displayed.
  2. Click on the [Enable a new Xerox System Scanner for network scanning and associate it with a scan server] radio button, and then click [Next].
  3. Select [Specific IP Address] from the Find Devices pull-down menu and continue with step 4, or select [Specific TCP/IP Hostname] and skip to step 5.
  4. If Specific IP Address is selected, an IP Address field will be displayed. Enter the IP Address of the printer in the field, click [Next], and then skip to step 7.
  5. If Specific TCP/IP Hostname is selected, a Hostname field will be displayed. Enter the printer’s TCP/IP hostname in the field, and then click [Next].

    NOTE: Select Specific TCP/IP Hostname if the Printer is using DHCP to resolve the IP Address and has a Hostname assigned.

  6. If the printer has been configured for Scan to File, a window will be displayed with a 'This device has already been configured for network scanning. Continuing will overwrite its current configuration. Do you want to continue?' message. Click on [Yes].
  7. The Enter Password window will be displayed. Enter your system password in the field provided, and then click [OK]. The Server Type (Filing Protocol) window will be displayed.

    NOTE: The initial system password at machine install is 1111. If the administrator encounters a problem with changing the password, or forgets the password, a service call must be placed.

  8. From the Server Type (Filing Protocol) pull-down menu, select [Windows (SMB)].
  9. Click on the [Browse] button located below the Location (\\Server\ShareName\Path) field. The Choose Location – Windows (SMB) window will be displayed.
  10. Browse to the server and then to the Scan folder where the CentreWare scanning folders will be installed, and click [OK]. The Location field will be displayed with the scan server name and the path to the shared scan folder.
  11. Click [Next]. The Xerox System Login Name window will be displayed.
  12. Enter the scan user name and password (this is the user account the printer will use to login to the server share) in the fields provided, and then click [Next]. The Distribution Server window will be displayed.
  13. Do not make any changes. Click [Next].
  14. Click on [Manage User Templates]. The Manage User Templates window will be displayed.
  15. Click on [Modify Template List] to begin selecting template users for this scan server installation. The Modify Template List window will be displayed.
  16. Make a selection from the list of Users and Groups, and then click on [Add] to create a scan folder and template for the selected user or all members of a selected group. If necessary, repeat this step to add additional users or groups.
  17. When you have finished, click [OK] twice. The Finish window will be displayed.
  18. Click on [Finish] to upload the scan settings to the printer. The Add Network Scanner Wizard window will close when the settings have been uploaded.

Yes.
Go to your desktop. Create a folder named "scans" on the desktop, and share it. Give the "everyone" group full access, or give users permission to modify files. Depending in how its set up.

On the copier, since you already have Email setup, your dns servers will be entered. Go to:

user tools, system settings, admin tools, address book management. Either select a user, or new program. Fill in user name ect. Select folder. It will ask for a path. Enter the path using the following template"

\\computername\scans. You should be able to test it out. If it is successful, then it will prompt you to login. This is your local login for the computer with the scans folder, The password is its password. Press ok to save.

Select scanner, scan document to the user that you set up. If the memory goes from 100%, to 99%, to 100% quickly, it worked.

You can use variations of this on a server too. If its a domain server, assigned to a group, the user name and password are what the user uses to access the active directory.

Lexmark 5400 series


Problem: Lexmark cannot retrieve applications list

I have the Lexmark X3550 with the WiFi option board installed (makes it same as the model X4550) and get the “cannot retrieve applications list” message on one of the five computers connected to my router (Linlsys WRT54G V8) and using wireless printing and scanning. Just like everyone else with a similar Lexmark WiFi printer/scanner, I can print wireless, but cannot get the wireless scanner to work on one of my PCs.

The fix, in my case, was to change the Lexmark network name as follows.

1. Launch Lexmark Imaging Studio.
2. Right-Click on “View or change network settings”.
3. Enter a new network name in the first box shown. (This box contained the correct network name for my PC, but another name was needed to make the scanner work. I simply added “-lex” at the end of the current network name.)
4. Right-Click OK. You should return to the Imaging Studio screen.
5. Close the Lexmark Imaging Studio window. (The tray icon should remain at the screen lower right.)
6. On the printer, press the Scan Mode button.
7. On the printer’s display screen, select the Computer Name that you entered for the new network name. Just use the arrow buttons until the exact name is shown.
8. Press the Check button. The display screen should show “Downloading Applications List”. Within about 10 seconds the message should change to “ *Scan to Computer ”. Wireless scanning should now work.
9.. Press the Start Color or Start Black button. “Requesting Scan” will be shown. After a few seconds scanning will start. The process is a bit slow.
10. After a while you may see an empty small Lexmark window onscreen. Later, the Lexmark Imaging Studio will appear onscreen, then change to show many options and features. An image of the scanned item will appear in a Lexmark window. Save and/or edit the image. Another scan can be done by pressing the printer’s Check button again. Be sure the correct computer name is shown on the printer’s display.

That’s it. A new computer name was the solution. Your PC and printer may require a restart (power off) after changing the “computer name”.
