How do you get rid of the Canon DR-7550C -4630 error "The device could not be locked"?

It's usually a software conflict.
If you have multiple scanning programs, the one of them may have it locked. Especially if you have a scanning program that runs as a service.

If you do not have the manual for this product, you can download it at Also make sure that the lamp lock has been disengaged. It's usually located under the lid or on the bottom of the scanner. This prevents damage during shipping but will give an error if it's engaged when you warm it up. Good luck.

Error message says: Scanner is locked, Computer cannot communicate with scanner.

Have you checked the obvious? The scanner lock switch is located on the bottom of the scanner back right corner. --Ted

Visioneer One Touch 8700 USB Scanner lock mechanism problems

Not sure if your problem is the same as mine, but I encountered the same error and only to find that I plugged in a wrong power adapter so it didn't have enough power to advance the scanner head (My moving caused this mixup). Check your power adapter OUTPUT is 12V (or whatever is specified on the scanner itself, usually found on the label on the bottom or rear).

Error 201

Which scanner is this? Error (201) usually indicates some sort of power issue...such as the scanner is not getting enough power. If this is a USB powered scanner you may try connecting to different USB ports on the computer.

Most scanners shipped have a lock on them to prevent the top from opening up and damaging the glass. This is a screw type mabey other but a penny fits in mine. This may not be the case for you but look in your manual to find the unlock device.
This will also in some scanners prevent the stepper motor from moving in transit . The stepper motor is the device thats makes the bar slide up and down to scan the page.
Hope this helped some.

Get another scanner. Check whether the lock has not been enabled at the bottom of the scanner. This has happened with me as well and a known Visioneer problem.
