How can i get scan drivers for a samsung clx-6250fx?


You can find the drivers in the website of Samsung. If it's already installed but not working properly then update it. You can use RadarSync to scan your computer so that you will find the available update.

Samsung SCX-4500W restore wireless printing on cryptic error


For those having trouble wirelessly printing to their Samsung SCX-4500W printer from a Windows computer, I have this "easy" 13-step process that usually fixes my most common printing problem:

The symptom:
You haven't used your printer in a couple of days and have just hit the print button in an application you wish to print a document from. Instead of your printed document gracefully emerging from your printer, a Samsung status window appears on your computer above the task tray, cryptically announcing "The current printer port is not supported for the current printer status". You scratch your head in complete confusion.

The solution:
  1. Go into the room where your printer is. Observe that it has dropped its wifi connection and not reconnected automatically - the blue light indicating wifi is no longer illuminated.
  2. Turn off the printer, wait a few seconds, and turn it back on.
  3. Rebooting always causes a blank page to be ejected - how annoying! Open up the tray and reinsert the blank sheet.
  4. Wait for the blue wifi light to come on.
  5. Return to your computer and open the printer job queue window. Locate your document in this window with "Error" status next to it: right-click on it and select restart so its status changes to "Printing".
  6. After a while, notice the status has changed to "Error - Printing" or "Error - Sent to printer". Since restarting the job was not successful, right-click and select cancel. Press the OK button in the confirmation dialog. You may have to do this a second time before the job clears.
  7. Return to the application you printed from and re-print the document.
  8. Double-click on the blue Samsung "S" icon in the task tray. A window titled Samsung SX-4500W Series will appear in the lower right. Observe the status first says "Please wait..." then show the same cryptic message "The current printer port is not supported for the printer status". Grrrr.
  9. Check if your computer really can access the printer by opening web browser and typing its ip address. For me, it is 192.168.1.70. Alternatively, click the "Printer Setting" button in the window of step 8. Observe that the printer reports it is alive and ready for action. This is good.
  10. Check if any other Samsung software is able to use the printer: Open SmarThru 4 software, select "Scan To", "Folder", then hit "Scan" button. Observe that scanning from the printer works absolutely fine. Close SmarThru. So the problem is just the crappy printer driver.
  11. Close any Samsung windows you have open. Navigate the start menu to Samsung SCX-4500W Series->Maintenance. The installer will run in maintenance mode and find your printer on the network (and show its ip address), as well as an option to use it on "Local Port". Select the printer on network and click Next. Select "Samsung SCX-4500W Series printer driver" to repair and hit Next. The driver will re-install. Click Finish when done.
  12. Return to your application you wish to print from and activate the printing of the document again.
  13. The Samsung status window will once again appear in the lower right proclaiming "The current printer port is not supported for the printer status". Ignore this stupid message and close the window. Go to the room with your printer and with any luck, you will find your printed document waiting for you!

Once you are well practiced at this, and can fully appreciate how useless Samsung's software developers are, you can just do steps 1,2,3,4, 5, 6,11,12, and 13.

My printer is Samsung SCX-4100.. The software SmarThru is not compatible for Windows7.. Do you have any software compatable so i can perform scanning..


for scanning you can use every program that supports scanning (irfanview is freeware, ABBY finereader and many others). You can try new version of smarthru (for samsung SCX 4300).

How to scan into my computer


Hello, I am happy to help you with your question. Samsung SCX-4200 supplies software calls Samsung Smarthru. This software application includes a scan command. The software is locagted on the CD that accompanied the printer.

Here are some excerpts from the manual:

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

Photoshop.

• From the Windows images Acquisition (WIA) driver: Your

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
software.


Loading document

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

document.

NOTES:

• 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

Samsung scx-4100 scanner error - cannot detect device "Samsung.."


I just fixed this problem for my computer. Try installing the scanner driver. You probably have the printer driver installed but the scanner driver is needed for Smarthru
