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...

SOURCE: printer is saying scanner is locked, unlock scanner

In the section where the paper exits the printer, there is a blue latch. Pull it towards you. It does take a little pressure to pull. You may need to press cancel a few times. That should clear it out. If it doesn't, The scanning unit assemply needs replaced...or the printer itselft which ever is cheaper.

Many scanners contain a scanning head lock to keep the scanning head from moving during shipping. This may still be still be in the lock position. All scanners are different but check the documentation on how to remove the head lock.

SOURCE: scanner locked

Look where your copies come out and there is a switch on the top underside, (green on the M20i) and make sure it is in the unlocked position. You may need to wiggle the switch to fully unlock it. Mine was locked but I was able to re-engage flipping the switch several times.

Bc898t all 500 channels are locked out. How to unlock all of them


Locking/Unlocking Banks When you are scanning conventional banks, the scanner displays the digit corresponding to all unlocked banks. To lock out a bank so that the scanner does not scan its channels, press the letter that corresponds to the bank. The bank's letter disappears from the display. To unlock locked-out banks, simply press that bank's letter again. The bank's letter appears on the display and the scanner includes that bank when scanning. Note: You cannot lock out all banks. One bank must be unlocked at all times. Locking/Unlocking Channels To lock out a channel so that the scanner does not stop on it while scanning, press L/O when the scanner is stopped on that channel, or manually select the channel and press L/O. To unlock the channel, manually select it and press L/O again.

Perfection 2400 scanner fails to scan; just clicks


The only thing that usually causes a scanner error of this type is either a scanner failure or the transport lock. Locate the lock and make sure it is in the unlocked position. Lock and unlock a few times leaving it in the unlocked position then power the scanner off and on again.
