Question about Canon PIXMA MP830 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I have the error message and an alarm light indicating that I need to unlock my scanner switch. I've done that probably 25 times to no avail. I've turned the machine upside down and shaken it, I've unplugged it, I've disconnected it from the computer, I've done everything I can think of to make it work and I get nothing from it. No printing, no scanning, nothing. What can I do to make it re-set or at least function like it's supposed to! It's not very old either.
Lift the document cover, and you should see a small gray slide type switch on the top of the scanner, near the front left corner of the glass. Slide the switch to the unlock position, close the document cover, turn off the machine. Wait five seconds, and turn machine back on. This should restore the scanner function.
