Darryl - lift up the top part of the scanner body (the silver part should separate from the black base) and let the kick-stand support the top part. Then look underneath the top part; there'll be a green tab sticking down from the top. If you look closely, you'll see little icons next to it that look like padlocks, one in an unlocked position and one in a locked position. Push the green tab away from you so that it lines up with the unlocked padlock, and that should do the trick.

I read several post on the issue "unlock scanner" with no luck. Here's what worked for me...
- turn off or unplug the printer
- remove the two screws underneath the control panel cover.
- gain access to the scanner device area'
- remove two screws underneath the control panel be careful not to break the clips
- Move the scanner slightly to the middle.
- Close the printer and turn on the scanner again.


good Luck

I just changed the ink cartridge and the printer is telling me to unlock the scanner and then press the power button, i don't know how to unlock the scanner!


It probably is unlocked, as you did this when you first set it up.
Here's a link to the setup sheet. It's in step 4.

There should be a switch on your printer that has a padalock on it, one open and one closed. Switch it to the open one, this will unlock your scanner.

Error Message


The scanner lock is used to keep the printer from being damaged when it is being shipped. To unlock it, just open the printer and push the scanner lock down. When you lift up the scanner unit, (like what you do to get to the cartridges) the scanner lock is on the left of the underside of the scanner unit. You can get the manual from the Lexmark Website at http://www.lexmark.com/publications/eng/x6100/index.html
