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.

My Visioneer 8650 flatbed scanner with auto document feed gives a message when I try to scan a document, telling me to move the switch on the bottom from the "locked" to "unlocked" position. The lock is...


Actually a very common problem. Try the following:
1. Power down then re-power up the scanner.
2. Try slightly moving scanner. Sometimes a small change works to fix.
3. Change one of your scan setting to flatbed scan (not adf). Do a test scan under this setting. This will usually kick start scanner unit to unlock.
4. Last resort, by does also work...give it a medium slap on the side, sometimes unjams the scanner light.
5. Super last resort, power down over night, it almost always works the next day. (could be that lock up is heat related to scan lamp, dont know but just a guess).
Excellent scanner, so worth the effort to try these fixes.

Scanner Locked


On the underside of the scanner assembly is a LOCK, it has two positions LOCK and UNLOCK. The manufacturer sets it to lock so the scanner doesn't move during shipment. You should be able to slide this to the unlock position.

Scanner lock is on


Do you not have a manual or 'get you started sheet?' It is the first thing you do when unpacking a scanner is to unlock the shipping lock. In all probability it is under the scanner base so if it is a lifting item[to access the printer] check there,or on the backplate of the scanner where all the sockets are. Failing that get onto the Tech support site at Canon.
