How do I fix an unlock scanner error?


Hi,

I work for Dell's Social Media Team and would like to you help with your question.
Please turn off printer. Unplug the power cable.
Inside the printer output tray (under the scanner), there should be a blue slide switch on the underside of the scanner housing. The blue button is on the underside of the section where the printed papers would emerge. This is the scanner unlock switch.
If issue persists, please contact our printer support at 1-877-335-5767 for further assistance.

Dell AIO Printer A950 telling me to Unlock Scanner.


Open the front cover of the printer so that the ink cartridges are visible and the green kickstand is supporting the cover.

Locate the green switch to the left of the kickstand. (Figure 1)

Push the switch towards the back of the printer, you're now unlocked.

Hope this helps!

There is a little tab that locks the scanner bar.
Open the flatbed cover, and you'll see it in the left corner closest to you.
To unlock it, reach your hand (palm up) into the area the the paper comes out in.
Slide the tab to the unlock position (you'll be able to see it through the flatbed area.
If you need a complete manual for the MFP, you can go to the Dell website, in the support area, and download a copy of it.

I Don't Have The Key


Darryl - lift up the top part of the scanner body (the silver part should separate from the black base) and let the kick-stand support the top part. Then look underneath the top part; there'll be a green tab sticking down from the top. If you look closely, you'll see little icons next to it that look like padlocks, one in an unlocked position and one in a locked position. Push the green tab away from you so that it lines up with the unlocked padlock, and that should do the trick.
