Hello there,

 

I have an Laserprinter Samsung SCX-4100 and just updated Lion to Mountain Lion.

But now the printer is just not responding. In Lion there has been a problem with this printer, but I found a solution and it was working.

 

Need the printer to print out my exam and Mountain Lion just made my printer worthless now.

 

Have anyone a similar problem with it?

 

Regards

Jake

    People who need to SCAN and/or PRINT without a compatible Mountain Lion driver from their manufacturer can use Apple's very basic "PRINT & SCAN" utility in System Preferences:

     

     

    1. Click the Apple menu ( ), and then click System Preferences .
    2. Click Print & Scan ( ).
    3. Click Print ,The next window looks like this:

    Hope this helps

    Hi Jake, i have SCX-4200 too.

    Using Samsung Drivers the printing is fine but my Mountain Lion is not recognizing the Scanner function neither through "Samsung Select Scanner" utility nor with Print & Scan OSX menu.

     

    Can you help me?

    Which versions did u downloaded?

    Hi Jake,

    I too have bought a macbook pro & have a Samsung SCX4100 printer for which I couldn't find the compatible driver. Could you please let me know if you can print & scan with your SCX-4100 after installing the SCX-4200 driver on your Mac?

     

    Cheers!

    Hi jake,

     

    Sorry to be such a noob, but do you have any idea where to find those drivers that you could choose from in the Printer Software window? I am trying to get an SCX-4200 to run with Mountain Lion, and cannot seem to find a proper driver anywhere.

    See if running Software Update from your Apple menu. A lot of new printer drivers for Mac are being rolled out that way instead of being posted on the printer companies' web sites.

    Thanks Allan. Software Update sends me to App Store with nothing to download, I am afraid. Are you saying that printer drivers will be distributed through App Store? Would be cool if it worked. Guess I will have to wait and see. Meanwhile, does any one know where to download the driver right now?

    Thanks. Your explanation was flawless and no problem with your English at all.

     

    However, I have been through this process a couple of times already. The problem is that when I do it, no Samsung SCX drivers appear at all in the Printer Software window, so for some reason Apple does not see them here (Sweden).

     

    My first reaction was that there are no SCX-4200 drivers for Mountain Lion, but as you clearly show in your example, there are. I would just like someone to point me in the right direction so I can download it myself.

    Hi Jake 2013, you need to install the SCX-4200 driver from the samsung website and then search the driver as Jake has instructed you in system preferences. Hope this helps.

    Hi Jake,

     

    Its Omar again here. I have managed to install the printer driver and the printer is working fine with my Mac. However I cannot get it to scan any items. Any ideas how to do make it scan? I have tried insatlling the scan driver and scanthru software from the Samsung website.

     

    Cheers!
