Scanner - Scanning Bar Became Stuck

I was scanning in pictures and the computer seemed to freeze during the task so I had to turn everything off and reboot. When I did so, I didn't realize my scanner was trying to still process when frozen and the bar became stuck in the middle of my scanning window. I've tried restarting the computer and the scanning feature again. I also downloaded a new driver just in case. Is there anything I can do, or have I broken it for good? Please help!

If you continue to get this kind of error after restarting the computer, you may need to update the scanner's device drivers or reinstall the included software. You should also make sure only one program or application is attempting to use the scanner by closing all but the one program you are trying use with the scanner. One last note - always either let the program you are scanning to operate the scanner or let the scanner invoke its default application by pressing the scan, fax or copy buttons on the scanner. Do not for instance try and scan an image into a running program that initiates the scanning process itself while also invoking a scan from the scanner's control panel. The two operations will conflict.

    There is usually a locking lever on the bottom of the scanner to lock the mechanism during shipping or transport. Make sure that lever is fully in the unlocked position!

    Scanning bar is stuck, won't slide, just clicks


    Did you try unlocking the transportation locks? 
    There are 2, one on the left side of the scanner and one on the top cover.

    Here is a site with some pictures on how to do it.

    Try to cancel it in the task manager by pressing the ctrl+alt+del. Select the scanner program. And select end task.

    Your solution is to scan it by batch. Put all the pictures and save it before proceeding another scan. You can't cancel the program while scanning.
