Answer: Hypersearch can only be turned on and off through a limit or direct search. To turn it off, you should do the following: Through Limit Search:

  1. Press PROG, then LIMIT (SRC). Lo and 29.000 MHz appear. 29.000 MHz is the low end of the scanner's range.
  2. Enter the frequency that is the lower limit of the range you want to search (including the decimal point), then press E (SVC).
  3. Press LIMIT (SRC). Hi and 1300.00 MHz appear. 1300.000 MHz is the upper limit of the scanner's range.
  4. Enter the frequency that is the upper limit of the range you want to search (including the decimal point), then press E (SVC) again.
  5. Press \/ to search from the upper to the lower limit or /\ to search from the lower to the upper limit.
  6. While the scanner is searching or is on a transmission, press H/S.
  7. HYPER should disappear from the display.
Through Direct Search:
  1. Press MAN.
  2. Enter the frequency you want to start from using the number keys. (Press . to enter a decimal point). NOTE: To start the search from a frequency already stored in one of your scanner's channels, press MAN or PROG. Then use the number keys to enter the channel number and then press MAN or PROG again. If you enter an invalid frequency, the scanner displays Error. Press MON/CLR (.).
  3. Press \/ to search downward or /\ to search upward from the selected frequency. -d-, SEARCH, and either \/ or /\ appear.
  4. While the scanner is searching or is on a transmission, press H/S.
  5. HYPER should disappear from the display.

I cannot use scanner Lide 25.. because show error : "release the lock switch,detach the I/F cable and reconnect" How solution?

Sounds like the scan head is locked. This is usually done so you can transport the scanner without bouncing the scan head out of alignment. Look under the scanner and you will see it. Make sure it's in the UNLOCKED position. You may need to power the unit off/on to reset it or restart your computer to get a fresh attempt at the scanner.

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.

Turn the copier off and remove the scanner glass. Sometimes the ribbon cable underneath the scanner gets bound up on the scanner. Flatten it out and secure it with scotch tape. make sure that the loop has enough slack on it for the scanner to travel freely.

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.

Scanner lock is on

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.
