I tried to scan a colour document but failed. Started the process then message came up saying there was a scanner error to switch off and on again. Now the message says "Error 5020: Release the scanner lock switch and turn the power off and back on."

The printer has encountered a printing error and by mistake the slide which unlocks the cover has been switched into open position. You will need to turn the slider back so the printer will reset. Also, in its position (open), raise the cover and turn on the printer because it will enter in maintenance mode and while it’s open turn the printer off and wait for the heads to go to their position and try to print again. Make sure the ink level is at optimum before printing (you can check this into the Control Center of the printer software).
