Its easy to fix. Turn the machine off, then look in the area where the copies comeout. Where you reach your hand in to remove the copies or received faxs. Squat down and look on the inderside of the scanner in that area. You will see ONE green item, it is the scan lock. It's about an inch and a half long and about a half inch wide. Shove it in, toward the back of the machine, then pull it out toward you until it snaps back. It may be a bit tight and may require a pretty decent pull back.
Once you snap it toward you, turn the machine back on and it should be ready to go.

How do we unlock the scanner ?

Scanner locked message on display. Will not copy


Check if the transit lock may have engaged due to movement. These locks prevent the scanner from moving while moving the devices during shipping. They sometimes engage by themselves.

The Xerox Faxcentre 2218 squeeks when receiving and paper is feeding through and is driving my secretary nuts. How do we stop the squeeking?


Most likely it is coming from the fuser bushing. Leave the machine off overnight to cool. Open the right side door. You will see an assembly with a yellow sticker on it, it is a caution HOT warning. That is the fuser. There are 4 phillips screws holding the fuser in and one plug. Take those 4 silver phillips out, disconnect the one white wire. Lay the fuser facing the front ( as removed) towards you. You will now see 2 screws on the fuser. Remove and unfold the fuser. Not the ends of the charcoal gray, or black roller. There are 2 fiber bushings on the ends, they are beige in color. I would suggest taking some alcohol and flushing those out, then letting it set for a few minutes to day out. If you can get a high temperature lubricant, lightly apply some in the busking area, On the 2218 you have to apply it lightly because you dont want it seeping into the contact area of the heat roll. I suspect that is the squeak. it is very common on that fuser on that model. You can replace the fuser, but thats a pricey way to get rid of a squeak.
