Question about Samsung SCX-4100 All-In-One Laser Printer
Just moved and lost the cable that connected my printer to my pc during my move - went and bought a new one - can print - but cannot scan documents - error message "Port is disable. Ensure that port is properly connected & power is on, then restart computer"
I uninstalled all Samsung files and then re-installed
still can't scan - error message now "cannot open device"
Need to know what is wrong with my Samsung SCX-4100 - help please!
For the system to work
completely; you need the print 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 allws 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.

THIS IS THE SOLUTION:
Samsung SCX-4100 is connected to te PC trough paralell port LPT. (not USB)
You must go in BIOS (most computers acces BIOS trough pressing DELETE-button during start) and select "Integrated Peripherals ", there you can see your LPT printer port.
If the port is disabled, enable it.
If already enabled, it is set to standart features. Highlight that settings, press ENTER and choose EPP/ECP feature.
Most parallel connected printers and scanners made since about the early 90's require EPP or ECP mode, or they aren't recognized as being connected at all, or you get strange error messages
Then press F10 for saving, then "y" for saving and exiting BIOS and the scanner will work for sure on your computer, too!
Enjoy and rate the answer!
