It is asking for me to unlock the lock switch - it is unlocked and still asking

I have many years repairing Canon scanners and here is my suggestion to you.

If you are positive the lock switch is unlocked then I think what happened is the scanner inside the scanner is off its track an can not move. I would remove the glass on the top of your flat bed scanner to gain access to the scanner lens then I would try and move the scanner lens manually with the power off to the scanner. If it does move freely then I would think you have a bad scanner lens. If it doesnt move freely try and reposition the lens back on to its track. They some times jump off there track from shipping.

I hope this helps you out.

We recently moved the scanner from one desk to another and now it is not being reconized by any of the computers.

Make sure the wires are pushed in all the way on the scanner. One may have come loose during the move.

When try to scan, lamp warms up then message received is scanner could not scan. 22 is NOT blinking. The scanning mechanism begins move across the page but only moves about half inch.

The scanner may have one of two problems:

1. Scanner lamp has failed or does not come up to full color temp

2. Scanner attempts to initialize, which means it must move a bit to what is the "home" position where the scanner actually reads a very small coded imprint on the underside of the glass. If this area is too dusty or dirty, that will cause this problem, but also if the scanner motor and worm drive are binding for any reason, such as the scan rails internally being too dry this will also happen.

Locate a service manual and remove the copy glass by removing the lock guide on one side, the glass should lift partially, allowing some gentle cleaning with soft cloth and glass cleaner. Do not attempt to force the scanner to move inside, as it is worm gear driven and such an attempt will strip the nylon gears or worse.

Follow the manual instructions if you need to fully remove the top
cover, glass and platen assembly for cleaning. It is very simple once you are in the interior...but gentleness and care are necessary.

Sadly, parts are difficult to find for all scanners now, and it is often far more economical to replace with a new, low cost and higher performing, higher rez unit for $ 120 or less. Often a lot less.

Good Luck!

Scan head is stuck in path and will not reset

I had the same problem. I disconnected the scanner from the PC. restarted my computer. Shook my scanner a little bit while PC was rebooting (or maybe a little slap) and when PC was rebooted), i plugged my scanner back and it recalibrated automatically.

Epson Perfection V500 installed. My computer recognizes it and diagnostic note says all okay. B ut when I turn on the power of the scanner, the grren light comes on in the front for about 15-20 seconds and then the scanner makes a loud grating noise and the green light turns orange and keeps flashing. No scan is attempted. TGhe noise sounds like something that should be moving can get started -- but nothing moves when you look at it. Should I take it back where I bought it?

My scanner could not start after transporting it without locking. SOME BODY LOOKED AT IT AND SAID THE PROBLEM WAS WITH THE MOTOR. HOW CAN I GET THE MOTOR.

Possibly the lock button got moved in handling - look under the front of the scanner for a small button that moves sideways - it will have a lock and unlock position. It may have moved to the lock position - that prevents the head from moving.

Epson perfection 2400 photo scanner stuck with flashing red light

You may have accidently pushed the LOCK button - this button is used to LOCK the carriage into place when moving the scanner to another location or shipping it.

Check for a button and the picture of a LOCK, it is usually at the back of the scanner, you can push it left or right, and you have an open lock and a closed lock picture under it. Make sure you didn't accidently push it to the LOCK position when holding the scanner - that loud sound means your carriage is locked and cannot move - once you set the button to UNLOCK this should solve your problem.

First solution
Probably the sensor is jammed .
The rod can be moved manually . If it does not move it needs cleaning.
Second solution
Refer to the Troubleshooting in the device manual.

CanoScan 5000F - Scanner bar is stuck

hi all;
i fixed it by taking the thing apart, pushing the scanner head (the block that is stuck-- that normally moves) back to the starting position. Make sure its snug at the end, a little bit off and you'll be putting it have to take it apart and back together a second time. There's a mirco swtich in there somewhere, and you need to make sure its pressed...
reconstruct, and hey presto, a working scanner! this also worked for my epson 1250 that got stuck once.
Easy as a section of gateaux.
