My xerox work centre 4118 is locked How am I going to unlock it


Do you mean your "Scanner" is locked? Were the paper exits to the left of the opening there should be a sliding switch. I suggest that you should use a flashlight to locate it This is the locking mechanism that once toggled , it will unlock the scanner. Remember to turn-off the printers power before attempting this.

I hope this resolves your problem, Steve

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.
