Samsung CLX-2160N Sanner Locked

My newly bought scanner starts with cracky noise everytime it is turned on and the display panel shows "scanner locked". I tried to look for the "unlock switch" but can't find any there. Does Samsung CLX-2160N comes with scanner lock switch? How can get my scanner unlock?

Samsung clx-2160 scanner locked

There's a comprehensive answer involving the PBA Main controller board, at
Fortunately, I did not have to go to these lengths, as I opened up the machine by raising the scanner assembly, then had some difficulty getting it back down again. Presumably there had been some kind of mechanical jam, as the scanner worked fine after being disturbed in this way.
It's too soon to say if this fix is temporary or permanent.

Non-working printer; no paper pickup

The solution shown for the Samsung CLX-3160FN All-In-One works also for the Samsung CLX-2160N.
The associated picture and methodology of "pre-stretching" the solenoid spring is virtually identical for both printers.

I have a CLX-2160N and there is a blue smudge

Have you tried a new cyan toner? Make sure you are using genuine Samsung toners and drums. Check the blue toner and drum for defects or wear.

Sanner is locked!

Look at scanner mechanism under glass. See if the clip has popped off of the slide guide "tube". Also, there is a scanner lock on this model. I believe it is near the back by the hinges but you can check the manual to be sure.
