The scanner lock is generally a physical locking mechanism and it is not a control panel feature. The scanner is locked and kept in a safe position before it is shipped. It is done to avoid the damage caused to the scanner. The sliding latch might be located at the underside of the scanner when looking straight, that is above the area from which the paper comes out, towards the left-hand side. Locate the latch and then slide it from the locked position to the unlock position. If the error message does not disappear on the printer, press the Stop or Clear button. Switch Off the printer's power and unplug the power cable for a few seconds. Switch On the printer again. For Support Call Our Toll-Free 1-866-293-9220

SOURCE: Black line when scanning or copying

If the line only appears when the scanner is used & not when printing directly from the computer, you are correct in assuming the problem lies in the scanner assy. There should be mirrors attached to the scanner assy which will gather dust and cause copy/scan problems. Remove the glass & clean the mirrors with a DRY cotton cloth. Do not use any cleaning solution on the mirrors as they are sometimes treated & can be ruined if they come in contact with a cleaning solution. Use the dry cloth to wipe off the lens while you have it apart.Also clean both sides of the copy glass while you have it off. Reinstall glass & test.Cleaning the optics solves the problem most of the time. Good Luck!!

SOURCE: how to scan documents then email them

To scan and send the documents via. e-mail. First of all you must run the setup from the cannon cd (comes with printer), use full installation (recommended option) complete the installation.

If this is already done then :-
1] Put the document that you want to scan in the scanner,

2]Open "control panel" and open "scanners and cameras" folder. (switch to classic view if needed)

3]Switch on the printer (if it's on only then proceed to next step)

4]You will see your scanner icon (if necessary refresh the screen)

5]Open it and click "next"

6] (OPTIONAL) Select scan image type.

7]Click "next".

8]Choose a place to save your image.(default is my pictures)

9]Click "next"

SOURCE: Printer making loud clicking/clunking sounds

Sounds like the problem I had where the plastic gears that drive the roller on one of the the toner cartidges are broken.

Your gunna have to take it to a repair shop or send it back where ever you got it. If they won't take it might still be under Samsung's warranty.

this is a scanner problem that can be associated with the scanner lock under the scanner bed. make sure the lock is in the 'unlocked' position. it is easy to move this when lifting the scanner bed to reload the ink blocks. if this does not solve the problem you may have to replace the scanner assembly. hope this helps.

Samsung SCX-4720F reads "SCANNER LOCKED" and won't copy or scan.


the lock is underneath the scanner where the printed paper gets delivered. when you reach in to get a printout you more than likley have pushed it into the lock position. Once you unlock that blue button by pulling towards you, switch off the printer and again switch on the printer.

Samsung CLX 3170 scanner locked


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.

WHAT DOES A L1 MEAN


The L1 is indicating a scanner lock.

1. Turn machine off.
2. Make sure the scanner lock is unlocked. This is a clear plastic knob. (it is located on the left hand side of the machine under the document glass in the copy exit area - check your manual for a picture.)
3. Turn machine back on, watch scanner to see if it moves.
4. Try a copy.
5. If you still get an L1 then it might need service because the scanning bar is jammed.

This also is a fix if you are getting blank copies.
Hope that helps...

Scanning problem


Possibly there is a key that locks the engine that moves the scanner lamp, and that key may be locking the engine, and when the scanner try to move the lamp, the locked engine overloads the circuit, and turn off the device. Search for that key, and unlock this, (if it´s really locked).

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.
