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.

I am repeatedly getting error code 5010 once I scan any document.


Ok it can be either 2 things: The FIRST is if you have not UNLOCKED the scanner lock switch. The scanner lock switch is a switch that keeps the scanner assembly frozen in place so that when you move your scanner from room to room or apartment to house, the scanner wont freely move around the unit causing it to be dammaged.

To unlock the Scanner lock switch just lift your document cover and look for the swtch on the LEFT hand side of the scanner's glass bed.

SECOND: IF the scanner lock swtich is set at UNLOCK, then your scanner assembly is broken and needs to be replaced. You must then send it to Cannon or any Mulitfunction printer repair place.

I hope this helps you :)

Scanner locked on samsung 3160fn- how do I unlock it?


Hello,
I think you have to call the service. They will change the hole Scanner. Because you can't unlock the scanner by any buttons or mechanical trick!

Scanner locked - unlock scanner


To unlock a scanner open it where you would put cartridges in and look for a red or green colored tab hanging down. There should be a little picture of a padlock. You can switch it from lock to unlock. It's kept locked to protect the scanner during shipping.

Hope this is helpful...

Scanner Locked


On the underside of the scanner assembly is a LOCK, it has two positions LOCK and UNLOCK. The manufacturer sets it to lock so the scanner doesn't move during shipment. You should be able to slide this to the unlock position.
