How do you release the scanner lock switch on the MP990

Open the document cover of the scanner decision, you should be able to slide the release lock switch towards the hinge side of the document cover. There is a padlock symbol on each side of the switch; the side closer to the hinge is an unlocked padlock. The other side has a locked padlock symbol. If the all-in-one was on, turn it off and wait 5 seconds before turning it back on after unlocking the unit.

If the switch is in the unlocked position and turning the printer off and then on again doesn't resolve the error, the unit needs service. Contact Canon if it is under warranty. (Otherwise, decide if the printer is worth the service call.)

I hope this helps.

I am having a problem with my printer. When I turn it on the copy light is on and the feed switch light and the alarm light and it says in the screen release the scanner lock switch and turn the power off...

Issue: ERROR LCD: Release the scanner lock switch and turn the power off and back on.
Solution: Unlock the scanner lock switch

The scanner must be unlocked before turning the unit on.

Turn off the power.

Lift the document cover.

The scanner lock switch is on the left hand side of the underside of the document cover.

Slide the scanner lock switch to the release mark (an open padlock icon).

Lock the switch before transporting.

Close the document cover.

Turn the machine on.

If machine still is not working repeat the power off / on cycle waiting 5 seconds in between.

The battery on my laptop will not come out. The release tab is stuck and no matter what I try it will not budge. Any suggestions?

Run the computer on battery until the battery is dead. Spray the battery bay and release tab with a _LIGHT_ coat of WD-40 and try again. A small screwdriver may help to pry the release out of the way. Too much pressure can break the release. If the battery is working well, you could just live with it in place until replacement time.

I am setting up a new Canon Pixma MP980. I lifted the scanner unit until it locked open to remove red packing tape and to have a look inside. Now I find I can't close the cover. How do I release the lock...

Over on the left there is a small two-position slide switch with pictures of an open lock and a closed one. Slide the switch to the rear (Open lock) and close the cover.
