If you open the lid, the lock switch should be on the lower left corner.

Where is the "scanner lock switch" located on a Canon Pixma MP980 printer? I cannot seem to locate the switch "under the hood" so I need assistance.


The scanner lock on the MP980 is on left hand side of the scanner unit. It's closer to the hinge of the document cover and almost centered between the scanner glass and the edge of the printer. If you lifted the entire scanner unit, you won't see the switch. You should be able to push the switch towards the open lock symbol with your finger or thumb. The Getting Started guide has a pretty good picture of where the switch is in Step One. The guide is available on the product page, http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_mp_series/pixma_mp980#BrochuresAndManuals , in the Brochures & Manuals section. The current link to the Getting Started Guide is http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/2/0300001552/01/MP980_GS_EN-US_V3.pdf . After moving the switch, turn off the all-in-one. Then unplug the power cord to clear the error message from the printer's memory. After a few minutes, plug the power cord back in and turn on the printer.

If the error persists and the scanner is unlocked, the scanner mechanism may be damaged. If that's the case, your MP980 needs service. If the unit is under warranty, contact Canon. (If it isn't under warranty, you'll need to decide if the unit is worth the shipping and handling fees and the minimum $50 or so charge just to determine the problem at a service center. (That fee will be applied to the cost of fixing the printer, if you decide to have the technician continue to work on the unit.)

I hope this helps.

Error Code 5020:
Scanner lock switch locked. [5020] Release the scanner lock switch and turn the power
off and back on.
Turn the machine off, unlock the scanner lock
switch, then turn the machine on again.

Hope it helps.

I am having a problem with my printer. When I turn it on the copy light is on and the feed switch light and the alarm light and it says in the screen release the scanner lock switch and turn the power off...


Issue: ERROR LCD: Release the scanner lock switch and turn the power off and back on.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Solution: Unlock the scanner lock switch

The scanner must be unlocked before turning the unit on.

Turn off the power.

Lift the document cover.

The scanner lock switch is on the left hand side of the underside of the document cover.

Slide the scanner lock switch to the release mark (an open padlock icon).

Lock the switch before transporting.

Close the document cover.

Turn the machine on.

If machine still is not working repeat the power off / on cycle waiting 5 seconds in between.

Scanner locked, cannot copy


On this model, if you look where the copy paper comes out, just look underneath the scanner. There is a green slide switch with a icon of a pad lock closed and one open. Turn off the power first, then reach under and slide the switch to the unlock side.
Turn on the power and the machine should work.
Good luck.

Workcentre M20i Scanner Locked, I tried flipping the switch still doesn't work.


I am not sure which switch you are talking about.
The machine has a power switch, and a scanner lock switch.
The scanner lock switch is located in the area where you take the copies out of the exit area, it is just above the knuckles of your hand. If you lean over look under the bottom of that scanner, there is a green sliding selector switch with a picture of a pad lock. Power off the machine, then move it to the unlock side. Then turn on the machine, see how it works ok.
Good luck.

Lexmark X83 "Unlock Scanner" error


I had the same problem and the solution is this: There is a red lever switch by the power chord on the scanner/printer. Above this red lever switch is the drawing of a lock in the "locked" position and at the bottom this red lever switch is the drawing of a lock in the "opened (unlock)" position. The lever on the red switch should point to the "opened" lock symbol (unlock). It the switch lever is pointing to the "locked" position of the lock symbol, flip it to the "opened" position and recycle power on the scanner by removing the power chord for a 30 seconds. If the lever is pointing to the "unlock" lock symbol, flip it to the "locked" position and then back to the "unlocked" position and recycle power. Good luck!
