Question about Microtek ScanMaker 3630 Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

How to Unlock?

Every time when I try to use the scanner, it says this error message:

Please verify that you have UNLOCKED the scanner hardware. The Lock is located on the bottom of the scanner. Click OK after you have unlocked the scanner.

I've looked and haven't found anything that looks like a "lock". Maybe a picture example of what its supposed to look like or where it is...or a solution to solve this problem?

Some scanners have a locking lever, some have screws that lock . Look on the bottom of the scanner to see if there is an arrow pointing to the lock screw or a lever.

The only things that can cause a scanner error on this unit is a complete scanner harware failure or the scanner lock. With the unit on lock the transport lock and unlock it a few times quite forcibly. Then leave it in the unlocked position and power off and on again. If the light returns then at his point I think a new printer will be needed.

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.

My 5800 keeps telling me to unlock it when I click scan, but I can't find the lock anywhere.


The 5800 scanner does not have a physical lock switch. DO NOT attempt to open the scanner and unlock the hardware. This could be either a hardware failure or software
Toggle the lock switch on the scanner leaving the switch in the unlocked (open padlock) position.
Ensure you are using the correct power supply for your scanner. If you are using a power supply that has the incorrect DC output, you will get a scanner locked error message. This flatbed scanners has I believe 100-120V AC input and 12V DC output.


Plug the power directly to the wall, not a UPS battery back-up, power strip or surge protector. Power fluctuations from a UPS battery back-up, power strip or surge protector may be causing this error. If all this fails try reinstalling the scanner driver

Will not scan. Scanner hardware is unlockedl


I don't know what your electronics skill level is, but if you feel up to it, try taking the scanner apart and using a jumper wire to close the circuit so that the scanner is permanently unlocked. At least on a scanner this old you do not need to worry about voiding any warranty...

Please follow the steps below to resolve your issue.

1. Turn off the printer.

2. Lift the scanner cover.

3. Toggle the transportation lock five times, ensuring that it is in the unlocked position, towards the back of the scanner.

4. Turn on the printer, and the error should be cleared.

Update me if you are still getting the error message.

Error on printer


There is a safety lock on the scanner that may be in the locked position. Turn the unit off and locate the green lock lever/switch under the scanner where the paper comes out. It will be labeled with a icon (picture) of a lock (unlocked and locked). Move it to the unlocked and locked position multiple times, ending up in the unlocked position. It may be stuck so moving it back and forth may release it. Turn it back on and try it.
