Look on the bottom side of your scanner. The area where your copies come out. Under where the lamp is, you will see a green lever. About 2 inches long and a half inch wide.
Shut the machine off, Shove the green latch toward the inside of the machine, then pull it back toward you until you feel it snap into place.
What happens is when your removing your copies you brush it with the top of your hand and accidently latch the scanner.
3 things you can do. Since that is just for shipping purposes. You can, which I recommend, Unplug the machine, remove the 2 phillips screws, and move the lamp to the right slightly. Remove that green latch, just 2 clips on the sides compressed a little removes it . Dont discard it, but just turn it around and latch it forward. There is a little nipple that will catch and keep it in place.
2, Once removed, if you dont plan on moving the machine, And by that I mean putting it in a car or truck and moving it to a different location, you can take pliers and snap the latch itself off.
3, Take a piece of tape and just cover the entire latch.
But that's your issue, and very common.

Can,t get scanner off all channels locked mode


Please try this!!
You may need a soft or hard reset. Here's some reading and instructions.
Please use this first!
resetting your scanner
1. Turn off your scanner, and then turn it on again.

2. Insert a pointed object into the reset hole on the back
of the scanner. Then, gently press and release the reset
button. Pressing reset does not clear the scanner's
working memory or the V-Scanner folders.

If this doesn't work here's step two! CAUTION. THIS WILL ERASE EVERYTHING, but it MAY Fix the Problem!!

Initializing your scanner clears all information stored in your
scanner's working memory. Initialize your scanner only when
you are sure it is not working properly. V-Scanner memory is
not affected when you initialize the scanner.

1. Turn off the scanner, and turn it on again. First, the DSP
boot version, and then Welcome To Digital Trunking appears.

2. Press 0. The following messages appear on the display:

System Tests

Select Test
Exits if no
Key Press

3. Press 1. The following messages appear on the display:

Factory Init
Erase Memory
ENTER if Yes
CL to EXIT

4. Press ENT. The following messages appear on the display:

Initializing
Clr Main Mem
V-Scan is OK
Please Wait

5. Do not turn off your scanner until the initialization is
complete. When the initialization is complete, M000 and
Bank 0 Ch 00 appear on the display.

Hope this works.. Happy Scanning

If that doesn't help. Please get it serviced. I do recommend to get a DSP Firmware Update for it. The download is free from RadioShack but the cable and software is not.

I hope this helps and solves this problem.
btw.. if you don't have the product manual http://support.radioshack.com/manuals/ome20-496.pdf
You will need Adobe reader or equivalent!!
Happy Scanning!!

When I on it, it displayed "call for service" l1-00


Error code L1-00 indicates that the scanner is locked down for transport. There is a dial under the scanner by the paper output tray. Rotate the dial, and the error message may be cleared. The dial controls the scanner lockdown mechanism.

It appears to be locked in "wired" mode.....how do I clr this code? I have never attempted to hook the unit up to our computer so I don't know how the code has appeared.


The best way to clear this glitch is to RESET the scanner to original factory settings, but beware -- this action with erase all data that you have programmed into the scanner. The scanner is useless if locked in the WIRED mode though, so I recommend the RESET.

- Power the scanner OFF
- Press and hold the 2, 9 and HOLD keys while you power the scanner ON
- The word CLEAr will appear after about 3 seconds. Do not power the scanner OFF until this message is gone from the display.

If you don't already have it, you can download and print your scanner's operating manual here:

Scanner locked message on display. Will not copy


Check if the transit lock may have engaged due to movement. These locks prevent the scanner from moving while moving the devices during shipping. They sometimes engage by themselves.

Scanner locked?


On some models there is a transport latch to lock the scanner. Look under the scanner (where the copy comes out) and you will see a green slide. Look down thgrough the scanner glass and you will see a lock/unlock symbol.

Scanner locked on my xerox 2218


Its easy to fix. Turn the machine off, then look in the area where the copies comeout. Where you reach your hand in to remove the copies or received faxs. Squat down and look on the inderside of the scanner in that area. You will see ONE green item, it is the scan lock. It's about an inch and a half long and about a half inch wide. Shove it in, toward the back of the machine, then pull it out toward you until it snaps back. It may be a bit tight and may require a pretty decent pull back.
Once you snap it toward you, turn the machine back on and it should be ready to go.
