There is a little tab that locks the scanner bar.
Open the flatbed cover, and you'll see it in the left corner closest to you.
To unlock it, reach your hand (palm up) into the area the the paper comes out in.
Slide the tab to the unlock position (you'll be able to see it through the flatbed area.
If you need a complete manual for the MFP, you can go to the Dell website, in the support area, and download a copy of it.

When you lift the scanner lid look to the left bottom. you should see a green slider button. If you stick your hand in the output tray and get it rigth under the green slider you will find a lever. Move that thing backwards or forwards, that is your unlocker.

Pull it toward you. You may have to pull kinda hard, but just pull it back. It's sole purpose is to lock the scanner head during shipping.

How do I unlock the scanner on a dell laser MFP 1815 dn printer. I can't fax or copy anything. It says the scanner is locked.


There's a little blue toggle switch where the copies/scans come out from.
Pull the blue switch toward you, turn off the printer, wait a few seconds, and turn the printer back on.

I cannot unlock my scanner? Dell 1815dn


The scanner has a manual lock (a blue sliding switch on the base of the scan bed inside of the printing output slot.)
This prevents the scan head from damage when the printer is moved.

Look and reach inside the paper outlet and pull the latch (located on the left) towards you.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Power the printer off!
To unlock scanner look in the paper output tray on the "roof" of the tray to the left. You will see a light blue slide switch. Slide this towards the front of the printer. It needs a firm tug.
Power the printer back on. The error should be clear.
