Most flatbed scanner do have a lever that would manually lock the scan head in place, done especially if you are transporting the device. This lever are sometimes awkward or hard to move/unlock. It is not like a button or switch that you normally see at the front panel of device

Download the image from Motorolla/Symbol support and put it on an SD card. Put the card in the slot underneath the keyboard. Do a cold boot and hold down the left scan button. Dock the scanner and keep holding the button. It will launch the image installer and take off on its own at which point you let go of the scan button.

The error message is saying the scanner is locked i took the steps to unlock it but i still get the same message

If you opened the lid in the same manner as you would to replace the ink cartridges and made sure that the switch on the right side underneath the lid was in fact unlocked, turned off the unit, waited a moment (up to 60 seconds) and turned the unit back on, but still receive the message saying that your scanner is locked, then you will need to use a Phillips screwdriver to remove the top cover and make sure that the scanner head is not somehow jammed. Usually you can hear the gears and motor spin up when the scanner head is unlocked. If you cannot, you may have a bad scanner head.

Kitchen Aid Dishwasher

Hi bluepanther,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: You have a Kitchen Aid Dishwasher that has a light on saying CONTROL LOCK,of which when on you can't do any wash cycles.You tried doing canel out,but no help.What can you do to get off so can use unit?? Is there a reset button underneath that will reset are very mechanical and can pull unit apart if needed....Thanks Scott

Should not be nessessary. The lock is for keeping playfull little hands from getting into trouble. You must have inadvertently activated it. Try pressing and holding the "heated dry" button. This should deactivate the lock after about six seconds. This same procedure will reactivate it should you feel the need.

Feel free contact me again!
