If your Canon is like my Canon, I would release the lock on the bottom of the device :-)

Kind regards,

Buy a new one! Sorry to be blunt, but scanners are often cheap to buy and built with with non-serviceable electronics like custom ICs etc. Unless this is a high-end professional scanner, I'd start looking for a new one.

If you're handy at electronics, then by all means do some basic testing/troubleshooting inside, you may get lucky and find something easy to fix.

I'd check the ribbon cable to the scan head first, they can go open circuit for obvious reasons.
