There is a green lever on top of the output tray. Push it back to lock and pull it toward you to unlock the scanner. Hope this helps!

All scanners come with the scanning head locked to prevent damage to it during shipping. On the back of the scanner, where the power cord and wires connect, there will be a sliding switch, sometimes a turning type lock, with two positions, one with the icon of a closed [so locked] padlock and the other with the icon of a open [so unlocked] padlock. Every scanner I have bought describes this lock in the setup manual.

How to unlock scnner


There is usually what looks like a large screw head either under the top cover that you lift to insert an original onto the glass, or somewhere in that area. It will have two symbols, a closed lock and an open lock, or better yet, the words "lock" and "unlock." This keeps the carriage from bouncing around while the scanner is being moved. Use a quarter or a screwdriver to rotate the screw head to the unlock position. Unless you are traveling with the scanner, leave it unlocked.

I cannot use scanner Lide 25.. because show error : "release the lock switch,detach the I/F cable and reconnect" How solution?


Sounds like the scan head is locked. This is usually done so you can transport the scanner without bouncing the scan head out of alignment. Look under the scanner and you will see it. Make sure it's in the UNLOCKED position. You may need to power the unit off/on to reset it or restart your computer to get a fresh attempt at the scanner.

Issue: ERROR LCD: Release the scanner lock switch and turn the power off and back on.

Solution: Unlock the scanner lock switch

The scanner must be unlocked before turning the unit on.

Turn off the power.

Lift the document cover.

The scanner lock switch is on the left hand side of the underside of the document cover.

Slide the scanner lock switch to the release mark (an open padlock icon).

Lock the switch before transporting.

Close the document cover.

Turn the machine on.

If machine still is not working repeat the power off / on cycle waiting 5 seconds in between.

My scanner is asking me to unlock the hardware, but the switch is already unlocked what do i do???


Some scanner models have a physical lock mechanism under them for use during transport that stops the scan head from sliding around. Check under your scanner if it has one and slide it along to the open/unlock position if it does.

Scanner locked?


On some models there is a transport latch to lock the scanner. Look under the scanner (where the copy comes out) and you will see a green slide. Look down thgrough the scanner glass and you will see a lock/unlock symbol.

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...
