It is not a new machine. Someone moved the lock. I found it and unlocked it, thanks.

Do you not have a manual or 'get you started sheet?' It is the first thing you do when unpacking a scanner is to unlock the shipping lock. In all probability it is under the scanner base so if it is a lifting item[to access the printer] check there,or on the backplate of the scanner where all the sockets are. Failing that get onto the Tech support site at Canon.

Release scanner lock switch


If you lift the lid of your scanner there will be a switch there, this will be set to lock, which locks the scanning lamp in place. If you flick the switch it should work as per normal

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.

Open the scanner cover so you can see the platen glass. Now look on the left side of the glass, and you should see a sliding switch, probably blue in color. Move the switch to the icon that shows an open padlock (unlocked position).
