Check the bottom or side of the scanner for a sliding lock.

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

Check the lock switch and make sure it is unlocked. I think the lock switch is on the bottom...or it may be under the lid near one of the hinges. Flip it back and forth and leave it in the unlocked position.

If this doesn't work, then it will most likely need service. Contact Canon Tech Support.

How do I remove the ignition tumbler on a 1992 Explorer?

  1. 1 Open the hood. Disconnect the cable from the negative battery terminal. Peel back the insulator if equipped, and use the wrench to loosen the clamp nut on the negative cable.
  2. 2 Remove the covers on the steering column. Use the screwdriver to pull out the screws, and detach the knee bolster below the steering column. Pull out the screws and detach the lower cover to find the screw for the upper cover; then remove the upper cover in the same manner.
  3. 3 Remove the multifunction switch by pulling out its retaining screw and pushing on the release lever to detach the switch from the column.
  4. 4 Disconnect the ignition switch's electrical connector. Then detach the switch from the steering column by pressing on its clips to release the tabs.
  5. 5 Install the new ignition switch in the old one's place, making sure the locking tabs activate and the spring under the switch is in position on the column's locking rod. Connect the electrical connector.
  6. 6 Reconnect all other parts on the steering column in reverse order of removal. Replace the negative battery cable.
  7. 7 Insert your ignition key to test for proper operation in all three positions: "Lock," "Accessory" and "Start."

Canon 8400F Scanner keeps returning ERROR: release lock switch, detach I/F cable and reconnect. The lock switch IS in the unlocked position, but scanner will not scan.

Have exact same problem on a Canon scanner (N1220U) which is several years old. Suggest you uninstall the driver software and reinstall it. I did and my scanner is scanning fine again.
