Multi-function Samsung CLX-3175 doesn't scan to PC

I had the same issue with Windows 7 64 bit.I managed to solve it by doing the following
1. Locate the scan2pc.exe program in C:\Windows\twain_32\Samsung\CLX3170 2. Right-click/properties - Compatibility tab. 3.Set compatibility to win xp. Set "Run as Administrator"
I also added the scan2pc.exe to the firewall allowed programs (did that for scanmgr.exe as well, but I don't think I needed to).
Works great now!
Good luck!!

Printer stuck warming up

What kind of printer, HP will pop a 50 code which means underheat or overheat. Usually fuser replacment solves these problems, I would not leave it on they tend to melt plastic covers above printer.....

Samsung clx 3300 used to scan to pc but now it

I was not able to scan to the computer from the printer and I resolved the issue by selecting "Enable Scan from Device Pannel" in the "Scan to PC Setings" menu in the "Samsung Easy Printer Manager". Somehow, the default value for this option was "Disable" and my printer could not make the connection to the computer. After changing it to "Enable Scan from Device Pannel", I was able to scan the documents to my computer using the menu options from the printer pannel.

Need to replace samsung clx-3175fn

I just replaced the fuser on this machine and the hardest part I think getting the right side cover off. The service manual was of little help the trick is to pry from the back and bottom. there are two little round tabs on the underside of the cover use a flat blade and pull. Once you remove the cover then I took the 4 screws out that hold the fuser. Then I lifted the fuser on the right side and traced the wires down to the board. There is a plastic piece on the right side of the fuser that sides into a gear. You have to slide to to the right to free the fuser. I used duct tape to keep the plastic piece and spring inside from falling out. Good Luck

Can you scan using ocr on CLX-3175FN

You can use OCR, the dpi is high enough, you just need the OCR software on your computer. There are no brains in the printer to convert the images.

Replaced black toner and drum. 1st page prints clean, the rest of pages are messy. Removed everything and wiped inside nothing showing on cloth.Everything seems clean. What else can I do?

Usually it's a dirty metal connector, but I will help you more if you reply my comment.

I have replaced imaging unit 2 months ago and now printer is telling me to replace it.

I assume that you made some alternation to the printer the it sense the change and blow the resistor of the imaging unit.all you need to do is check the resistor by the side of the imaging unit if it is blown replace it with same value but a stronger one.
