SOURCE: Scanner locked - unlock scanner

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: scanner locked

There is a lock that has been hit and has the scan lamp locked.
Where to look is on the botom of the scanner. Look in where you remove the copies, on the bottom of the scanner you will see the only green part there, it is about 2 inches long and a half inch wide.
Turn the machine off, reach in and push the latch full IN, toward the back of the machine, then pull it our toward you until it snaps into place fully forward, It may be a little tight with it against the lamp carriage, but once you get it latched forward it will return to normal.
That latch is easy to hit when you are removing your copies from the tray.

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.

My xerox work centre 4118 is locked How am I going to unlock it


Do you mean your "Scanner" is locked? Were the paper exits to the left of the opening there should be a sliding switch. I suggest that you should use a flashlight to locate it This is the locking mechanism that once toggled , it will unlock the scanner. Remember to turn-off the printers power before attempting this.

I hope this resolves your problem, Steve

SCANNER LOCKED IS ON THE DISPLAY SCREEN I HAVE CHECKED THE GREEN BUTTON UNDER THE PAPER TRAY AND THAT IS SET TO UNLOCK. WHEN I TRY TO PRINT THE DISPLAY SCREEN SAYS SCANNER ERROR AND THE SCANNER LOCKED


Hi, what you want to do is, first; (shutdown) your Scanner, next (shutdown) the computer. Disconnect the scanner, and unplug it from the outlet. Disconnect scanner cables from the computer; Note: do not change anything on the computer. Reconnect cables to the computer. Plug scanner back into the power outlet; turn on computer, turn scanner on. This may clear the (Freeze); but the (Error) might appear again. Thanks paul7of9

At the lcd screen you can read this message: "ESCANNER DESABILITADO"what should I do?


The scanner probably got accidently locked. Turn the machine off, unlock the scanner, then turn back on.

Instructions on how to unlock the scanner are found here:
