The left of the scanner glass/window, there is another narrow window where you should be able to see the scanner head. The scanner head on mine was locked at a slight angle in this window. an extremely thin kitchen knife in on the right side of the narrow window, between the edge of the window and the narrow plastic strip. able to push the locked end of the scanner head down with the knife by prying the knife up and down between the glass window and the plastic. The end of the scanner towards the back of the printer was locked on mine and it was slanted towards the left side of the printer. After a couple minutes of prying and pushing down on this end, it popped free!

Hi I have just purchased a Samsung CLX- 3185 Colour printer, scanner and copier and the screen states ' Scanner Locked'


The scanner may have a locking lever that locks the scanner head so you can transport it without damaging the scanner head.
Locate the locking lever and unlock the scanner head.

Scanner locked


Check your green scanner lock which is under the scanner area right in that area where your copies comes out of the machine. This is the most common cause of the "scanner locked" condition. The lock gets accidentally engaged as it is located right where you reach in to get your copies.
If the lock is not the problem then you may have a scanner drive issue.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

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...

Bank are locked out


Simple, some Radio Shack models respond to their preset lock out override control protocol. Try holding the lock out button and the scanner should override the lock out on the banks. If that doesn't work, you may need to un-lock them one by one, which may be time consuming. Or, you could reprogram the scanner all together.

Hope this helps!
