Question about Microtek ScanMaker 3630 Flatbed Scanner

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?

Why do I get an error message: Internal error occurred. Scan driver will be closed. Code:5,202,52?


Look at the bottom of the scanner and there should be a lock/unlock slider. Unlock it and see what happens.
If it is already unlocked then the drive/stepper motor or belt is bad.

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.

Keep getting error message to unlock scanner.....says it can be unlocked from the bottom of the scanner, but I don't see it.


My one touch 5800 USB scanner worked great on XP for over a year and then started giving me the unlock the scanner message. I tried different power supplies, reloading software and moving it to a machine running 98SE and nothing improved. I left the cover open and noticed that the lamp was fairly bright at the sides but very dim in the center. I replaced the lamp with one from an old parallel port scanner which was in good shape and it now works perfectly on 98SE. I have not connected it to a XP machine yet.

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...

Scanned image comes out all black


The scanner has a locking device for transport. If it has inadvertently gotten flipped it will cause this issue. Look for the little green or blue tab labeled "Lock" "Unlock" making sure it is unlocked.

The scan motor is straining against somethinmg - so re do the lock/unlock routine and carefully examing the machine and the manual - usually in PDF on the software disk.
