I have a dell 1600n printer. Though it prints but the copier is not functioning. The copier light does not come up. It brings a command, "Unlock scanner, then press cancel"



1) Remove the label completely from the scanner module by gently pulling it. The scan unlock switch automatically moves FORWARD to the unlock position.
2) NOTE: When you are moving the multi-function printer or do not intend to use it for a long period of time, move the switch BACKWARD to the lock position. To scan or copy a document, the switch must be unlocked.
Please see page 4 of the owners manual for more details. Here's a link in case you've lost yours:

I wish you the very best of luck!

The scanner is locked


There's a physical locking-mechanism that is designed to keep the movable parts of the scanner locked into place, while the scanner is being transported. On most scanners, it's either a few screws, or a lever. From the manufacturer's web-site: http://support.dell.com enter '1600' and do a search, and download the Quick Start document, to read the specifics.

Dell 1600N Displays Scanner Locked


If the lock mechanism is broken as you say it might be, then it will have to be disassembled to be removed. Unplug it, there is high voltage present to run the scan lamp. Be very careful and deliberate while disassembling, you will have to put it back together, or get someone experienced to do it.
