Above the paper out tray under the keyboard is the green button. If you have it set up on a table you will have to bend over and look under the control panel to see the green slide. Slide it towards you.

Open the scanner lid, you should see the green clich with lock and unlock signs. Go underneath the lid, pull the green clich towards yourself. and then press stop/clear button.

Ricoh Aficio Color 6513 scanning mechanism lock

A locking mechanism holds and protects scanner optics during shipment.
You product is a printer though, not a scanner, and does't have any physical locking mechanism or switch, so the instruction to lock down the scanning mechanism doesn't apply.
Just turn off the main power switch.

Error in sharp am900

I suggest to return it to the store as you have just brought it possible that the scanner lock is still in the lock position but more likely to be a major fault with the machine.

Thanks J

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.
