I don't know this model in particular, but most machines have a lock switch under the document feeder on the left corner of the contact glass. When you find it you should just have to hit "stop/clear", or turn power off/on.
I hope this helps.

please let me know

I have the message "Unlock scan head" when I turn the screw to the left to unlock it, I get the same message. Is there anything else I should be doing?


If you receive this error even after unlocking the scanhead xerox suggests replacing the scanner assembly. Item Inc offers this part on exchange for much cheaper then xerox. Here's a video to show you how to fix this error/replace the scanner.">

My Visioneer 8650 flatbed scanner with auto document feed gives a message when I try to scan a document, telling me to move the switch on the bottom from the "locked" to "unlocked" position. The lock is...


Actually a very common problem. Try the following:
1. Power down then re-power up the scanner.
2. Try slightly moving scanner. Sometimes a small change works to fix.
3. Change one of your scan setting to flatbed scan (not adf). Do a test scan under this setting. This will usually kick start scanner unit to unlock.
4. Last resort, by does also work...give it a medium slap on the side, sometimes unjams the scanner light.
5. Super last resort, power down over night, it almost always works the next day. (could be that lock up is heat related to scan lamp, dont know but just a guess).
Excellent scanner, so worth the effort to try these fixes.

My printer will not print


I have a feeling Your Scanner is Locked, Their is a scanner release switch , make sure the scanner swithc hasn't been moved, these move in away that they could accidentally lock the scanner when you remove paper and stuff.

MP 160 Cannon Printer Won't Scan


try checking if you have completely installed all the drivers for your printer. scanning and copying dont usually needs drivers because you can do that even without a computer. but scanning requires your scanner to be read by your pc. try checking for the scanner driver from the cd that came from your printer.

Samsung SCX-4720F reads "SCANNER LOCKED" and won't copy or scan.


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.

Samsung CLX 3170 scanner locked


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.

BROTHER MFC-8840D "Check Scan Lock" error message


I had the same problem. It means the scanner lamp is in the park position and is stuck. You need to lean the printer away from the sheet feed side and bump it on the side. This may fix it. If it doesn't turn off the power and remove the two screws that hold the scanner lid on. Then remover the other 6 screws located under the lid on the left side while the lid is hanging from lid open sensor cable be carefull not to drop the lid, break the cable or the glass bed. After removing the base screws you can set the lid on the scanner again while you lift the scanner bed exposing the scan lamp mechanism. Push it a few inches in the machine and close the lid. You can do a test by powering the unit on and hold the lid open sensor button located on the bottom left of the lid. The system should initialize and bring the scan lamp back to the proper position. Turn off replace all screws and your done. If it doesn't work the first time push the scanner lamp farther into the scanning area and repeat. Good Luck

Scanner Locked


On the underside of the scanner assembly is a LOCK, it has two positions LOCK and UNLOCK. The manufacturer sets it to lock so the scanner doesn't move during shipment. You should be able to slide this to the unlock position.
