I have the message "Unlock scan head" when I turn the screw to the left to unlock it, I get the same message. Is there anything else I should be doing?


If you receive this error even after unlocking the scanhead xerox suggests replacing the scanner assembly. Item Inc offers this part on exchange for much cheaper then xerox. Here's a video to show you how to fix this error/replace the scanner.">

The error message is saying the scanner is locked i took the steps to unlock it but i still get the same message


If you opened the lid in the same manner as you would to replace the ink cartridges and made sure that the switch on the right side underneath the lid was in fact unlocked, turned off the unit, waited a moment (up to 60 seconds) and turned the unit back on, but still receive the message saying that your scanner is locked, then you will need to use a Phillips screwdriver to remove the top cover and make sure that the scanner head is not somehow jammed. Usually you can hear the gears and motor spin up when the scanner head is unlocked. If you cannot, you may have a bad scanner head.

Inside the print tray (where the paper comes out) on the upper right there is a blue lever. Pull it toward you and that will unlock the scanner. I just did this and restarted my printer and it worked! Hope this helps!

Scanner locked. how to unlock


The scanner latch should be on the left side of the scanner.
You can try powering it off and on. Something is catching the scan head.
You should have a one year warranty on that product also if you need to call Xerox.

Error Message


The scanner lock is used to keep the printer from being damaged when it is being shipped. To unlock it, just open the printer and push the scanner lock down. When you lift up the scanner unit, (like what you do to get to the cartridges) the scanner lock is on the left of the underside of the scanner unit. You can get the manual from the Lexmark Website at http://www.lexmark.com/publications/eng/x6100/index.html
