Where is the "scanner lock switch" located on a Canon Pixma MP980 printer? I cannot seem to locate the switch "under the hood" so I need assistance.

The scanner lock on the MP980 is on left hand side of the scanner unit. It's closer to the hinge of the document cover and almost centered between the scanner glass and the edge of the printer. If you lifted the entire scanner unit, you won't see the switch. You should be able to push the switch towards the open lock symbol with your finger or thumb. The Getting Started guide has a pretty good picture of where the switch is in Step One. The guide is available on the product page, , in the Brochures & Manuals section. The current link to the Getting Started Guide is . After moving the switch, turn off the all-in-one. Then unplug the power cord to clear the error message from the printer's memory. After a few minutes, plug the power cord back in and turn on the printer.

If the error persists and the scanner is unlocked, the scanner mechanism may be damaged. If that's the case, your MP980 needs service. If the unit is under warranty, contact Canon. (If it isn't under warranty, you'll need to decide if the unit is worth the shipping and handling fees and the minimum $50 or so charge just to determine the problem at a service center. (That fee will be applied to the cost of fixing the printer, if you decide to have the technician continue to work on the unit.)

I hope this helps.

Cannon Pixma mp145 model error for scan i dont have need for printer i am using only scanner --------------------------- Printer maintenance is in progress. Scan after it is complete. Code : 2,114,0


According to you your scanner not working well which error code 2,114,0.

To solve this you can try the following

unplug cable

press and hold "power" button

plug cable

press "resume" and release

release the "power" button

At this stage, your computer will detect a new hardware.

Insert the the driver CD and update the scanner driver.

It may happens also for empty cartridge of also.

Replacing of your empty or dry ink cartridge can solve your problem.

HP Officejet 6310 scans once but then says scanner failure


that error message is nothing to do with the software part, it actaully hardware issue try the following, 

1) unplug the machine and connect it to wall outlet directly,
2) unplug the power cord from the printer and press and hold ON for 1 min and release the ON button and plug it back..
3) Disconnect the power cord from the product.Press and hold # and 6 while reconnecting the power cord to the product, and then release both buttons and if printer turns off, turn it back ON and wait until it cmopletes its instialization and if still persists, it a hardware failure...............

Scanner Error Power Turn off than on


If you are get that error message than unplug the power cord, and than press Poun and Number 6 Keys together on the keypab of the printer. While these keys are pressed and hold, than at the same time plugged in the power cord and dont release the two buttons.
After say 30 second you will get a new message on the screen of the printer.
All of the above steps actually reset the printer. I hope this will work.
