    I have the same problem.
    Normally when I switch on the scanner, the scanning lamp will move forward and backward. But now when I switch it on, the scanning lamp won't move. And the lock switch is surely at the unlock position.
    When I call the service center, they said that maybe there is a problem with the lock switch or maybe the scanner. And they told me to bring my scanner to the service center. I just can't do that because I stay far away from them.

    Maybe some one can tell me how to open te glass part of the scanner? So I can check the inside, maybe it needs oiling inside....

Errow msg. "release lock switch and detatch the i/f cable" still will not scan.

There is a switch on the underside on the scanner. This is the lock switch. Flipping it should solve your problem.
