Well..that's a possibility. the locking is usually from a device inside on the head/cartridge carrier..there should be no electronic or digital lock..

There is an SP mode to put scanner to "ship position" depending on model (none given) but over all it is no big deal if copier is kept level and nothing very heavy on top of it. -Carl

Is says the scaner on my samsung printer is locked


Open the lid, find the latch that has a locked/unlocked glyphs on it, nudge it unlocked, then try again. If you ship scanners unlocked (esp. on a jet) they get worn in a bad way. If you use them locked...it can't scan but one direction (a line.)

Unlock scanner message appears


That means you have to "Unlock" it physically, there will be a lock/unlock device at the side underneath etc, that you move to "Release" the Scan head. When shipped it is "Locked" to prevent damage. the first time it is used you "Unlock" it.

I have a Sharp AL 1631 copier. The lock scanner light is flashing but it's not locked. I have tried unplugging and starting over but it's not helping.


did this just start happening or is this a brand new scanner. if it's brand new it would be shipped locked. look on the bottom for a slide switch. if it is unlocked, slide the switch to locked then unlocked again. also you would need to leave it unplugged for about ten minutes or so to reset it.

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.

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,

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...

Toshiba printer e-studio 150


There is a small clear plastic circle under where the paper comes out, it has two positions, lock and unlock, sometimes when people grab the copies they bump it to lock, use a flash light and make sure its unlocked, you can also just remove it, it was there for shipping. L-codes = scanner lock problems, real cold conditions can cause the scanner greases to not allow the scanner to move fast enough, put the copier somewhere warm. Good Luck!!!
