SOURCE: Canon LIDE 500F scanner does not scan - returns error message about releasing lock switch, detaching interface cable and reconnecting

I had the exact same problem with another scanner (LiDE 80) after years of use. It stopped being able to calibrate itself so I couldn't use it on computers where it had never been installed on before (since on freshly installed computers, the driver requires calibration to be carried out at least once).

Hopefully my solution will work on the 500F, albeit with some modifications you'll have to figure out yourself. :P

What I did was open it up, the two strips of plastic to the left and right of the platen can be used to remove the glass surface:
1. release the oval catch at the front of each strip by prying them upwards.
2. slide the glass towards the front of the scanner a bit till a gap appears between the end of each strip and the back of the scanner.
3. pry a bit of the back of both strips upwards and keep them away from the glass so they won't stopped by the back of the scanner.
4. slide the glass all the way to the back, you should be able to remove the glass since the two plastic strips aren't blocked anymore.

The reason the scanner fails to calibrate is because it tries looking for the black/white strip hidden between the plastic case and glass panel at the front but fails. There are three possible reasons:

1. Dirty glass panel/damaged black/white strip
2. Covered/dirty CIS module
3. Loose drive belt

Mine was a combination of the first three. A little washing and thorough drying of the glass panel and black/white strip and careful wiping of the imaging element and led strips (the black bar is the imaging element and the white bar is the led strips) fixed the problem.

I didn't have a loose drive belt, so I didn't look into fixing that, but I see a spring loaded catch holding the drive belt tension; if you have a loose belt, it may be worth it looking into that.

A tip of advice: If somehow, after reassembling your scanner after tinkering with it it still refuses to calibrate, you can do a dirty workaround by doing the calibration with the scanner disassembled and placing the black/white strip manually above the CIS module at the front, making sure to hold it steady. Your images will look a bit muted, but at least it works! (I did this step before I reassembled the scanner just in case it wasn't fixed, but thankfully its working now!)

SOURCE: Canon LiDE 110 gets error code "release the lock

Unfortunately if the scanner is unlocked and you have reinstalled the software with no luck, then the scanner is defective.

If your scanner is still under warranty you can get a free repair or replacement form Canon...your best bet would be to contact them via one of the methods listed here:

The LIDE scanners are nice, I understand your frustration.

I hope this helps! If this did help you, please give a thumbs up!

Thank you for choosing FixYa!

Canon CanoScan LiDE 100 Flatbed Scanner Release lock switch


Beneath the scanner is a lock switch, ensure that it is in the unlocked position.

If it is in the unlocked position and it still displays this error message then you will need to get a technician to free the reader assembly and give it a clean. Not too big a job. It's a good little scanner I enjoy mine, even after the same thing happened to it.

Take care!

I cannot use scanner Lide 25.. because show error : "release the lock switch,detach the I/F cable and reconnect" How solution?


Sounds like the scan head is locked. This is usually done so you can transport the scanner without bouncing the scan head out of alignment. Look under the scanner and you will see it. Make sure it's in the UNLOCKED position. You may need to power the unit off/on to reset it or restart your computer to get a fresh attempt at the scanner.

Errow msg. "release lock switch and detatch the i/f cable" still will not scan.


There is a switch on the underside on the scanner. This is the lock switch. Flipping it should solve your problem.
