Hi I have just purchased a Samsung CLX- 3185 Colour printer, scanner and copier and the screen states ' Scanner Locked'


The scanner may have a locking lever that locks the scanner head so you can transport it without damaging the scanner head.
Locate the locking lever and unlock the scanner head.

Scanner locked


Check your green scanner lock which is under the scanner area right in that area where your copies comes out of the machine. This is the most common cause of the "scanner locked" condition. The lock gets accidentally engaged as it is located right where you reach in to get your copies.
If the lock is not the problem then you may have a scanner drive issue.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Scanner locked


Most, if not all Samsungs have a physical scanner lock to prevent the scanner from moving during shipment and damaging it.

This scanner lock should be under the lid, somewhere on the lower or upper left side of the platen. It should be clearly marked with lock symbols and a green slider. After you slide it towards the unlock position, turn the machine off and back on again.

If you do not see it, slow down and look very, very closely. It is definitely there.

If for some reason flipping this switch does NOT fix your problem, please comment on your post and I can assist you further.

Samsung CLX3160FN: scanner stays locked


Hi Stijntje,

The scanner lock is actually a physical locking mechinism. It is not a control panel option.
the scanner is locked in a safe position before they ship the unit to prevent damage to the scanner.

I believe that this sliding latch can be located ( while looking straight at the unit ) on the under side of the scanner, above the area where the paper comes out, more to the left hand side.

locate the latch and slide it from the locked position to the unlock position.

Press stop/clear button to clear the error and try again.

Good luck,

Epson 3490 scanner red light flashing message that printer cannot properly communicate with pc


If the start button light is flashing red, it is because of one of the following problems:
  • The scanner is not connected to your computer properly or your software is not fully installed.
  • The transportation lock is locked. Slide the lock to the unlock position.
