The lock is underneath the scanner where the printed paper gets delivered. when you reach in to get a printout you more than likley have pushed it into the lock position. Once you unlock that blue button by pulling towards you, switch off the printer and again switch on the printer.

Won't scan, error message -scanner door is open


Simple solution. I just had the same problem. Make sure the top cover on the left side is snapped in. It wasn't obvious that it was open. They should probably give a better code because it is not the scanner door that is open.

Keep getting Scanner Locked shown in display, will not let me scan, how do I unlock it. Samsung SCX 4720F


Scanner lock is located underneath the scan assembly, where the paper exits the printer. It may be stuck so slide it back and forth a couple of times.Unlock the scanner and then press 'Stop/Clear'.
