Display says Scanner locked


There is a green switch located under the scanner area of the machine. You will also see a diagram of locked and unlocked padlocks. Just slide the switch to the unlocked position. Hope this helps.

SCANNER LOCKED IS ON THE DISPLAY SCREEN I HAVE CHECKED THE GREEN BUTTON UNDER THE PAPER TRAY AND THAT IS SET TO UNLOCK. WHEN I TRY TO PRINT THE DISPLAY SCREEN SAYS SCANNER ERROR AND THE SCANNER LOCKED


Hi, what you want to do is, first; (shutdown) your Scanner, next (shutdown) the computer. Disconnect the scanner, and unplug it from the outlet. Disconnect scanner cables from the computer; Note: do not change anything on the computer. Reconnect cables to the computer. Plug scanner back into the power outlet; turn on computer, turn scanner on. This may clear the (Freeze); but the (Error) might appear again. Thanks paul7of9

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!

Samsung CLX 3170 scanner locked


Many scanners contain a scanning head lock to keep the scanning head from moving during shipping. This may still be still be in the lock position. All scanners are different but check the documentation on how to remove the head lock.

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.


Normally that is an issue with the ribbon cable from the scanner to the main board if the latch is in the correct position.
I would securely reseat that cable, bias it somewhat upward.
Check the ends of that ribbon cable to be sure a portion of the silver print isnt pealed back.
No reset code for that. The scanner may have failed also. The sensor inside the scanner may be bad.
You can try going to the Xerox.com site under drivers and downloads and load the newest firmware. But I doubt that is an issue.
Only other thing i could think of would be the scanner not returning to the full home position due to an obstruction.
Or the scan head itself being out of the rail latch, or even the end of the scan head could be broken, not scanning straight.
