One Click Scan Shortcuts

For all those people out there who need to speed up their work flow this guide is for you. We will go over creating a workflow shortcut on the desktop. For one click scanning, to go where you need it to, configured how you need it to be configured.


The first step is to select the scan location. It can be smb, pc, email or what ever location  you frequently need scans to go to.

Secondly we are going to want to select our preferred settings. In this screen shot we are selecting Mixed Size. To allow mixed size to show up in this field we will have to have paper resting in the scanner adf for the rest of this process.

Another setting that is based on how you load paper is the original orientation. This one may or may not have a graphic that reflects how the scan will show up depending on the way the paper is loaded into the adf.

There are plenty of other presets you can select. I only gave example of the most commonly sought after settings.


After you have selected all your preferred settings you are going to click on the three vertical dots, right of the star in the upper right corner .

When this menu drops down you are going to want to tap on the “Add to My Program” selection on the top of the drop down list.

We are going to give the program a name, then we will enable auto start and add it to the home screen. This will make it a one click icon on the desktop

Now you will have a icon that looks like a paper plane sitting on your desktop. You will want to have your paper loaded before you click the icon.

Lines on scans and copies.

streak

Lines on scans and copies are quite a nuisance. They can appear from time to time and then disappear or get thicker and more numerous.

If these lines appear just on scans and copies then they can taken care of without any maintenance or parts.

 

On most scanners there is a large glass bed.

To the left of the glass bed is a strip of glass. This strip of glass  is involved when ever you do a scan through the feeder.

 

The paper slides past this small strip of glass. When there is even a finger print, smudge or small particle stuck to the surface  of this glass, then it could cause a streak or line across the scan/copy.  Any larger piece of dirt will definitely leave a line

 

Try removing this dirt and do a test. If you successfully removed it then the lines should disappear. It is easier to see the finer dirt with a bright light. Also most glass cleaners like Windex can be helpful.

 

 

Automatic Meter Read/Toner Level Reporting


We have automatic meter and toner level reporting at Inland Digital Solutions. This is available to customers with a windows pc on the same network as their printer.

This secure app is called fmaudit and it  sends us information about the printer on a frequent basis so that we have daily meter reads on file. meter-reading-ss

It also gives us toner levels and statistical data on when the cartridge may run out

toner level screen shot

If this app is installed on users computer and stops reporting, for whatever reason. We will call for meter readings.  We can however send you the link in an email to reinstall the app.

Remedy for Driver Issues

Remedy for Driver issues

 

If a driver has stopped working it is common practice to remove the printer from Devices and Printers and then reinstall the printer. Afterward job accounting needs to be added to the driver (if your company makes you use job accounting.)

 

If you don’t need to remove the driver, then head on down to step 3.

How to:

Step 1: Open up Devices and printers

driver1

 

Step2: Remove Printer by right clicking on the printer and selecting remove device.

driver2

 

Step 3: Reinstall printer by going to www.samsung.com/printersetup. Then, download and open installer. Or download the universal driver and run it.

driver3

Step 4: In installer select the following then click next: Check the agreement then hit next> Check existing printer then hit next> Highlight your printer, for example the Samsung CLX-9252 9352 Series, then hit next> In the Select Software to Install pane select only the Samsung CLX-9252 9352 Series PS printer driver then click Next> Wait for download and installation to finish> In the Setup Completed screen, deselect Register Samsung Cloud Print then click finish.

driver4

 

Step 5: How to input Job accounting.

Repeat step one by opening up devices and printers. Then, right click on the newly installed printer. Select printer preferences

driver5

Step 5a: In printing preferences click on the advanced tab

driver6

Step5b: In the Advanced tab, Select Job Accounting

driver7

Step 5c: In Job accounting  make sure that the account type is accounting. Make sure that user permissions is selected. Make sure that under user ID, Enter name is the selected choice. Where the Yellow oval is, put the users username and below it we enter the password twice. Alternatively is this is a community computer then just type in a message for the user to read, where the yellow circle is then check the check box for Confirm name/password when printing.

driver8

After you have finished entering the proper details, hit ok and then hit apply in printing preferences.

Now perform a test print. If accounting details were inputted improperly then the job will not go through. So check carefully the spelling of the username and password as these are case sensitive.
