Scanner error 5


The only fix that I know is to get the scanner/copier assembly(that's the assembly at the very top where the copier is) replaced.
I don't imagine that it is cheap. Get an estimate 1st.

Check your System scanner application is running. Open the End Task manager select the tab process and see there may be scanner.exe is there select that one and click end task.

Hello, I am attempting to scan an important document and the printer keeps saying "set the document on the platen glass" the document is there but it keeps saying the message


The best way to scan images to save on yourcomputer is to use the scanner software on the computer. Not the scan functionon the scanner.
You don't say what type of scanner software you have but usually scannersoftware works this way:
1) Place photo on scanner
2) Open scanner software
3) Using the software, Initiate scan
4) Name the Scanned item and save it to your desired location/folder
Note: some applications will automatically save to --My Documents--My Pictures
5) Repeat process for each pic to be scanned

Please help... Says "scanner locked"


Power off the printer. There is a green tab located in the paper output section of the printer. If you side your hand below the keypad on the left side you will feel the tab sticking down. Pull the tab towards the front of the printer to unlock the scanner. Then power on the printer, this should remove the scanner locked message. Hope this helps you.

Have a Xerox M20i Copier/Scanner/Fax. Display indicates "Scanner Locked" Cannot make copies nor fax out. Please help


If you look under the scan assembly you will see a yellow or green tab which locks the scan head. Try locking and unlocking it a few times then on the final unlock reboot your printer.

I can print, but I can't scan. Printer screen says "Problem" and tells me to "Try scanning from computer".


the drivers for the scanner might have been corrupted
you might have to uninstall the printer/scanner restart your computer then reinstall the printer/scanner and its drivers
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to ports(COM&LPT) + to expand you should see a communication port and Ecp printer port you might see a yellow?question mark this will mean you need to install a new driver for this device right click you will have options to update driver,disable,uninstall or select properties again you will have the similiar options plus you can troubleshoot
hope this helps

Unlock scanner keeps appearing on my lexmark x85 printer


Go to the Lexmark web site here: http://support.lexmark.com/perl/support/support.cgi?ccs=229:1:0:0:0:0
- In the SEARCH BY MODEL box, type in X85 and click SEARCH
- In the SEARCH THE KNOWLEDGBASE box, type in UNLOCK SCANNER. It will show some instructions for the X83, but that was the little brother of the X85, so should work.
