Each individual program requires at least a short guide to be written. In this article, we will look at utilities that help you work with Kyocera equipment. We will focus on several programs at once. Utilities for the most part help to manage devices, configure them, and, of course, maintain.

Information about the program

KYOnet for clients

This program was developed by the engineers of the company specifically so that the user at any time could view the status of the printing device, as well as the job that was printed. The utility may well become a replacement for the status monitor built into the Windows operating system as a standard device.

KYOcapture

Allows you to take full control of scanning processes. This is a desktop application. Thanks to KYOcapture, the user is able to customize absolutely any processes related to scanning files. That is, it is possible to set a sequence. Both paper and electronic documents are supported. They can be named according to the rules. It is possible to simultaneously send a file to several network storages at once. Operations can be performed in conjunction with the HyPAS option.

KYOcapture can handle three main categories of components:

Use TWAIN scanning applications to scan your documents, such as Adobe Photoshop, Corel Paint Shop Pro, etc. or you can use the free program Paperscanfree.

I would like to share with you a very useful article that will save you a few days and millions of nerve cells! On the one hand, it’s even funny to write an article and make a video instruction on how to set up scanning via USB on an MFP from Kyocera, but when I poked around with this question for several days, I realized that people are also poking around with this, which means that the article will be useful)

So! for a start, background and introductory data!

  • Windows 7 PRO x32 available
  • and new just bought Kyocera 2030dn
  • connected devices via USB.
  • Configure Printer
  • Configure Scanner

Everything came out very quickly with the printer, but I had to sweat with the scanner! By default for everyone I pull out the shortcut to scan. Windows Fax and Scan

but when scanning, we get an error:

No scanners detected. If the scanner is installed, check that it is plugged into the network and connected to the computer, and then try again.

For information on adding a scanner or troubleshooting, see Help and Support.

since the disc from Kyocera was included in the kit, everything that was possible was installed from it, but this did not bring any effect! in the end I went from the opposite!

Configuring a Kyocera Scanner on a Computer via USB

I will fully describe the path that I did!

  • I went into the TWAIN Kyocera driver (after installing the drivers from the disk, there will be this shortcut in the start-up, or find the Kyocera folder and you will find it there)
  • created a profile with my MFP (in my case it was kyocera 2030, but in your case it can be any models: 1035, m2035dn, m2040dn, 2135, m2635dn, 1040, 1124mfp, m2135dn, mk1500, taskalfa 221, etc. the principle will be the same most)
  • After that, we go to the device manager and see if we have any unidentified devices (you never know the driver has not been installed or a bad USB wire and the scanner is not detected)
  • if there is nothing in the manager, then manually add the scanner, right-click on the computer and select. Install old hardware
  • Choose from the list. Imaging devices
  • Then, through the browse button, select the folder on the disk with our drivers for the scanner (there will be three folders, but only one WIA can be picked up)
  • After that, open the Windows Fax and Scan application and Voila everything is scanned!

You can enjoy life, BUT everything will work until the reboot, then you will have to configure everything again from the beginning.

for the purity of experiments, I completely demolished Windows and installed all the drivers on Kyocera, but there was no result! USB scan failed!

As a result, after a dozen experiments, I still picked up a “cinder key” to this problem! and now I will share this instruction!

USB Scan to Kyocera via WinScan2PDF

  • First, we check and configure (who has not yet configured the TWAIN driver that comes on the disk with the printer)
  • after that we download this little program for scanning WinScan2PDF
    You can download the latest version of WinScan2PDF here
    one of our readers recommended this program for scanning https://naps2.com/
  • Unzip it and run
  • This program picks up the profile of your printer that you created in the TWAIN driver
  • and through it you can immediately start scanning)))
  • The only drawback of this program is that it scans only in PDF format

Note: during the experiments, such programs were tried as:

  • FineReader 10 and 11 version
  • Vuescan
  • other programs from the Internet
  • I also bought three USB cables of different manufacturers and types.

BUT none of these programs worked and could not scan via USB with Kyocera

The WinScan2PDF scanning program has been tested for scanning via USB on the following devices:

  • FS-1020MFP
  • FS-1120MFP
  • FS-1025MFP
  • FS-1125MFP
  • ECOSYS M2635dn
  • ECOSYS M2135dn
  • ECOSYS M2540dn
  • ECOSYS M2535dn
  • ECOSYS M2735dw
  • ECOSYS M3040dn
  • ECOSYS M3540dn
  • ECOSYS M3040idn
  • ECOSYS M3540idn
  • ECOSYS M2040dn
  • ECOSYS M2540dn
  • ECOSYS M2640idw
  • ECOSYS M3550idn
  • ECOSYS M3560idn

So, if something does not work for you, write in the comments, we will think! good luck everyone and bye!

A conventional cartridge of this brand has not only two-sided printing, but also two-sided scanning. You can use wired (Ethernet) as the network. The M2530dn also has a fax.
Separate imaging drum and separate toner cartridge to reduce replacement costs even with original consumables.

Since this is an MFP for the office, respectively, the most correct way to use it is a direct connection of the device to the local network.

Kyocera ecosys m2035dn kx how to set up your scanner
The beginning of the setup is to connect the MFP to the local network. The developers of Kyocera do not eat a loaf in vain. right from the factory in the MFP settings, automatic receipt of network settings via DHCP is set, so you just need to plug in the network cable and check the visibility of the device on the local network. You can find out the IP address of the device by printing a Device Status Report. Or through the printer properties (Ports tab). Or through the admin panel of the router (list of connected network clients).

Kyocera Scan Utility
But if you do not have a router on the network (DHCP server), then you will need to look at what IP address the MFP has and then, on the computer’s network card, put a suitable one in order to dock them together. You can also manually specify the IP address on the MFP itself, but this is inconvenient to do. The network settings are blocked by a username and password, which are inconvenient to enter (the default username and password are Admin / Admin). I do not understand why in the factory settings to set the login and password for access through the device panel? Especially so difficult to dial.

KYOnet for Direct Printing

This software will allow you to print a PDF document even if AcrobatReader is not installed on your computer or laptop. What other opportunities does the program open to its users??

  • Combining separate PDF files into one single job;
  • Changing the printing sequence of these files;
  • Selecting a printing device and a print profile.

The program interface is extremely simple. To successfully complete the task, the user only needs to specify the files for printing, and then send them to the appropriate process using the button.

Prescribe Printer Language

This is a real editor based on a programming language called Prescribe (it was developed by the same Kyocera company, which, in principle, is quite logical). The editor allows you not only to perform certain tasks that are somehow related to printing, but also to automate this process. over, some tasks can only be supported by this utility. Among other things, we can note the simplicity of the corresponding programming language. It won’t be very difficult to learn it.

Panel Plus Designer

This software is installed on a personal computer. It is quite convenient to use. Even a user who is not very well versed in this matter can easily create the task he needs. After the task is formulated, it will be saved as a file with the appropriate resolution. The file itself can be instantly “uploaded” to the printer (using an external USB drive). Then a button will appear on the device panel, which is responsible for the task written by the user. For the utility to work, Java must be installed on the device, version at least 6.0.

What Kyocera printers can do?

Devices manufactured by this company are able to:

  • Scan files to copy them in applications.
  • Scan documents and send them to specified email addresses.
  • Scan files and save them to a shared folder for multiple devices.
  • Scan FTP Server.
  • Connect to a database of other servers.
  • Work with the Job Box function (while applications receive jobs).
  • Save files to external USB drives.

No additional software is required to perform these functions, any Kyocera printer supports them from the get-go by simply plugging it out of the box and plugging into the device.

KX Driver

The application allows the user to learn the basic operations that are performed when printing files. This program is enough to understand the basics of working with Kyocera equipment. The utility opens up standard features, adding some specific features to them.

For example, for Kyocera equipment, this is printing protection by entering an n-digit password. The program also contains options that are responsible for the state of the hard disk inside the printer. The user can create separate profiles to help speed up the most common printing tasks. The utility’s potential does not end there, I must say.
