I had the same problem for many months and I just fixed it. I did a few things so I am not positive which action was the key but I believe it was the REMOVAL of the locking key. I also oiled the bar the scanner runs on. And I did that reprogram thing where you: 1. press the c button followed by the auto button. Do this twice and the lights go out. 2. press the button so it says "14 copies" and press big green button. I have a Sharp 1631. I am not an expert. Good luck.

Locking/Unlocking Banks When you are scanning conventional banks, the scanner displays the digit corresponding to all unlocked banks. To lock out a bank so that the scanner does not scan its channels, press the letter that corresponds to the bank. The bank's letter disappears from the display. To unlock locked-out banks, simply press that bank's letter again. The bank's letter appears on the display and the scanner includes that bank when scanning. Note: You cannot lock out all banks. One bank must be unlocked at all times. Locking/Unlocking Channels To lock out a channel so that the scanner does not stop on it while scanning, press L/O when the scanner is stopped on that channel, or manually select the channel and press L/O. To unlock the channel, manually select it and press L/O again. Restoring All Locked Out Channels You can restore all locked-out channels in a bank only when the bank is selected for scan. Follow these steps to restore all locked-out channels in a bank. 1. If you de-selected the bank, press SCAN then press the bank's letter. 2. Press MANUAL. 3. Hold down L/O for about 2 seconds. The scanner beeps twice and unlocks all To delete a stored frequency, press 0 then press E. Channels with no frequencies are automatically locked out hope this helps

Have a Xerox M20i Copier/Scanner/Fax. Display indicates "Scanner Locked" Cannot make copies nor fax out. Please help


If you look under the scan assembly you will see a yellow or green tab which locks the scan head. Try locking and unlocking it a few times then on the final unlock reboot your printer.

Unlock scanner message appears


That means you have to "Unlock" it physically, there will be a lock/unlock device at the side underneath etc, that you move to "Release" the Scan head. When shipped it is "Locked" to prevent damage. the first time it is used you "Unlock" it.

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.
