Many scanners contain a scanning head lock to keep the scanning head from moving during shipping. This may still be still be in the lock position. All scanners are different but check the documentation on how to remove the head lock.

Samsung clx-2160 scanner locked


There's a comprehensive answer involving the PBA Main controller board, at http://www.justanswer.com/printers/6nvwc-samsung-clx-2160-message-reads-scanner-locked-cannot.html
Fortunately, I did not have to go to these lengths, as I opened up the machine by raising the scanner assembly, then had some difficulty getting it back down again. Presumably there had been some kind of mechanical jam, as the scanner worked fine after being disturbed in this way.
It's too soon to say if this fix is temporary or permanent.

Hi I have just purchased a Samsung CLX- 3185 Colour printer, scanner and copier and the screen states ' Scanner Locked'


The scanner may have a locking lever that locks the scanner head so you can transport it without damaging the scanner head.
Locate the locking lever and unlock the scanner head.

My scanner locked clx -3160fn


There is a green tab located in the paper output section of the printer. If you side your hand below the keypad on the left side you will feel the tab sticking down. Pull the tab towards the front of the printer to unlock the scanner. Then press the Stop/Clear button to clear the scanner lock message. Hope this helps you.

Sanner is locked!


Look at scanner mechanism under glass. See if the clip has popped off of the slide guide "tube". Also, there is a scanner lock on this model. I believe it is near the back by the hinges but you can check the manual to be sure.

Scanner locked on samsung 3160fn- how do I unlock it?


Hello,
I think you have to call the service. They will change the hole Scanner. Because you can't unlock the scanner by any buttons or mechanical trick!
