I have always found that there is an external source close to the scanner that is causing the problem you are describing. Try turning off things around you to see if the static dissapears such as TV, Computers, un-plug any wall-warts, flourescent lights or light bulbs, cordless phones, etc...
If you can eliminate everything in the house then start looking around outside for other electronic sources.

Lock out across scanner restarts is LOCK LOCK in quick succession. If you only do one lock, then it is locked until the next power down/up cycle.
