    I have an Agfa SnapScan E60.

    Recently I brought it to work and forgot to lock it when moving it. Hooked it up at work - did the install thing - then tried to scan. Error message kept coming up "Scanner is Locked." I brought the scanner home and hooked it back up to my PC - still brings up the Locked message.

    I think I broke it when moving it from home to work and back again. Does anyone know how to fix it, or have any things for me to watch out for when a get the nerve to pull it apart. I will definetly have to take it apart to try to fix the unlock mechanism, but am scared to do so. Any advice would definetly be appreciated.

    I need my Agfa back and they don't sell them anywhere anymore.

    Hi and welcome, have you tried moving the lock/unlock tab back and forth?
