How to unlock scnner

There is usually what looks like a large screw head either under the top cover that you lift to insert an original onto the glass, or somewhere in that area. It will have two symbols, a closed lock and an open lock, or better yet, the words "lock" and "unlock." This keeps the carriage from bouncing around while the scanner is being moved. Use a quarter or a screwdriver to rotate the screw head to the unlock position. Unless you are traveling with the scanner, leave it unlocked.

Epson V300 Photo Scanner Streak When Scanning Negative

I also own a v300, and I have noticed that I occasionally get rainbow streaks if I bump the scanner at all while it is scanning negatives, so this might have something to do with vibrations in the machine. Is it sitting on a stable surface?

Scanner Canon 5010c

This is a known problem with the scanner. Use PixEdit to scan which comes around this problem so the scanning terminates OK after the ADF goes empty.

Visioneer One Touch 8700 USB Scanner lock mechanism problems

Not sure if your problem is the same as mine, but I encountered the same error and only to find that I plugged in a wrong power adapter so it didn't have enough power to advance the scanner head (My moving caused this mixup). Check your power adapter OUTPUT is 12V (or whatever is specified on the scanner itself, usually found on the label on the bottom or rear).

Problem with new set

Sounds like the lock-switch is in the locked position. This is on the bottom of the scanner. Move the lock-switch back and forth a few times and then leave it in the unlock posotion. Try scanning again.

If you are scanning a book, it may be too heavy and putting enough pressure on the scanner that it is preventing the scan head from moving fully. Try scanning with nothing on the glass to see if it does the same thing.
