The lock for the scanner is on the roof of the cavity where the printed paper comes out. Simply flip it to the other position and restart the printer.

SOURCE: dell laser mfp 1815 dn "scanner locked" message

When you lift the scanner lid look to the left bottom. you should see a green slider button. If you stick your hand in the output tray and get it rigth under the green slider you will find a lever. Move that thing backwards or forwards, that is your unlocker.

My dell laser mfp 1815dn is saying the memory is full how do i erase it?


Write cmd in your start button(you maybe have to run as admin)
A black window appers
Then write stop spooler and press enter.
Wait until the window close.
Your print job is now erased.

If this does not help, upgrade your software from here:

How do I unlock the scanner on a dell laser MFP 1815 dn printer. I can't fax or copy anything. It says the scanner is locked.


There's a little blue toggle switch where the copies/scans come out from.
Pull the blue switch toward you, turn off the printer, wait a few seconds, and turn the printer back on.

My Dell 1815dn printer - says the scanner is locked. Makes horrible clicking sound when I try to scan of make a copy. How do I unlock the scanner?


The scanner has a manual lock (a blue sliding switch on the base of the scan bed inside of the printing output slot.)
This prevents the scan head from damage when the printer is moved.

Look and reach inside the paper outlet and pull the latch (located on the left) towards you.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Inside the print tray (where the paper comes out) on the upper right there is a blue lever. Pull it toward you and that will unlock the scanner. I just did this and restarted my printer and it worked! 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.
