The Track/chain that the scanner bar follows might have some debris/dirt whatever on it stoping it from moving further. Alternatively the motor might have a problem. you can take the cover off and blow that area with a con o' air. Make sure not to get dirt or prints on the scanner or the bottom of the glass

There are a couple possibilities that can cause the problem.
1. you need to unlock the scanner. There is a lock at the side of the scanner that could be in the locked position which is preventing the scanner from moving. you can use a nickel or penny or screwdriver to turn it to release it.
2. the tab that is holding the gear is broken
3. the glass is not attached 100% to the upper case and the scanner is hitting it when trying to scan.
if its 2 or 3, you might be better off getting a replacement.
