Remove both cartridges from the printer.
Move the red lock switch (at the back of the printer) from the down position to the up position, and then move it back to the down position.
Unplug the printer and turn it onto its left side.
Then return the printer to the upright position and reapply the power supply.
Attempt this fix twice and then try to print and scan once more.

Unlock


According to the manual, it's on the bottom of the scanner. It's a slide switch that should be moved toward the picture of the open padlock.

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

Scanner not working


Samsung can be cheeky with support i have found and not as helpful with tech help. Instead of going off in tiny circles with unlocking etc, i would go for the quick fix and suggest your scanner may not have installed properly when you installed it. As you have installed the drivers again with no luck i would even suggest goint to samsung web site and downloading new updated drivers for your printer to eliminate corrupt drivers. Does you pc register the scanner being there? Go to control panel, hardware/ printers, find your printer and check all the drivers and whether scanner is actually present on the pc here.

?Scanner failure? error message


Usually this type of error message pops up when the scanner lamp isn?t warming up properly. This is what you should do: 1. Check if the lamp is on. 2. Unplug the scanner?s power supply and plug it back in. Try connecting it diretly to the wall. 3. If that doesn?t work: a. Unplug the unit?s power supply. b. Press ?cancel? and left arrow while reconnecting the unit. c. Release the buttons when the printer starts up. 4. Try scanning again. 5. If it doesn?t work, have it serviced.
