    The door is not opening, but mostly because of what sounds to be a hard spinning effort inside, which produces nothing. I'm thinking it is a jammed CD. How do you force the door open or get in otherwise?

  • Dave321 Dec 30, 2007

    I have this problem - When I press "Eject" I get a popup messege which says "Lock on" - Does anyone know a solution or who I should address this to? I have just purchaced this as "Ex demo" from Currys electrical in UK. I can only open the drive by Hard resetting the unit. I tried Firmware update which worked but didn't help. Is there a lock code to stop people stealing the disks during shop demos?

    A dvd stopped playing and will not eject. How can I get the dvd to eject?

  • kimmer56 Feb 14, 2008

    All of a sudden my dvd tray won't open and I have a disk in it as we speak and the player won't respond to the remote or manually trying to get it to open or play. The blue light comes on but no reading in the screen where it use to come on with "Power on" then read the disk and when you shut it off it first read "power off". Once the blue light is on for a bit then it goes into stand by mode. Will not respond to anything I do and this just all of a sudden happened out of no where. How can I
    1. get the disk out?
    2. get it to respond again
    3. Is there such a thing as a 're set"?

  • Anonymous Dec 22, 2008

    There is no lock front panel button. The instruction manual says to press SETUP and '2005' on the remote control and that the tray will unlock. However, it does not. There is a NO sign that comes on in the DVD player. Nothing seems to help. Another tech person (at another site) said to try unplugging and replugging the unit, then immediately pressing EJECT. Will try this later today. However, the tech person said it may be a problem with the drive, and that the unit may need repair (or just buy a new unit is another recommendation).

    i have a sanyo dvd. it said locked. i held the eject button for 5 seconds and it unlocked. If that doesn't work then unplugging the dvd player might work.

    When the open/close button is pressed, the DVD tray does not slide out, and a LOCKED message reads from the display. The HOME display on the TV screen no longer has the DVD player option. Rebooting the power has not helped.???

To unlock, manually press and HOLD the open/close button & the stop button simultaneously, and HOLD them both down until the lock picture disappears.   The DVD will eject when you press the open/close button. 

 

To lock the DVD inside the machine, repeat the same step, and it will lock it inside.

I had the same problem on my Sanyo DWM390 DVD Player. Found out later that My 2 year old was the culprit. Apparently there's a Demo Lock feature that will prevent the DVD from ejecting and you can activate the LM(Lock Mode) by holding down the Eject button for more than 10 sec. You can unlock it by doing the same thing. HOpe it helps, i was relieved i didn't have to buy a new player.

    I have a Philips DVDR 3575H which locked up on me. The display continually showed that it was in load status and the drawer would not open. Pulling the power cord did the trick. I did not need to hold the "stop" button but the advice certainly was sound. I am so truly appreciative for the help. Thank you, thank you.

I had this problem with my Panasonic RV-30. Basically anything I tried to do displayed "locked" on the player and "tray locked" on the screen. It let me play DVDs but not open the tray, or even turn the power off. To temporarily open the tray I was able to by unplugging the player and pressing eject right as I plug it back in. To fix the problem I reset the player to the factory defaults. I had to download the manual to find out how to do this. For my machine , when it was in the stopped mode, I had to hold down the rewind and pause buttons at the same time, then hold down the eject button for about 5 seconds (until "initializing" went away). Viola, my machine works again.

I tried messing with parental controls in the manu and it was unlocked, so it doesn't appear that was the problem. It looks like the machine got "confused" and needed the reset.

Usually panasonoc/technics have a tray locking device for all CD/DVD products for transit purposes(sometimes a removable platic clip), this is usually situated on the underside of the unit (see unpaking notes in handbook). Check to see if it is in the unlock position. You could try switching the unit off, then switch it back on whilst holding in the stop key on the unit, this often resets some functions.

The manual has instructions for this. it is a feature to keep kids from opening the dvd tray and using it as a cupholder, etc. when the trya is open, push and hold the open/close button until "locked" displays. to unlock, push and hold the button until "un-loc" displays. simple, eh?

Protect-plus lockout feature

On certain RCA, Memorex and other clone brand units, there's front-panel button lockout feature called Protect-Plus responsible for causing this aggregating problem.

The primary design intent of this feature is to disable the unit's DVD tray, including the front panel and remote control buttons (for demo units on display in stores) so the disc inside can't be stolen. The secondary intent is to prevent anyone from interfering with timed-recordings previously entered.

To deactivate the Protect-Plus front-panel button lockout condition, press and hold the POWER button (using your remote control) until the lock icon disappears. You will have to hold-down the button for about 10 seconds or so. The Memorex MVDR2102 remote control button you need to press is labeled Standby/ON/OFF rather than POWER.

Activating the Protect-Plus lockout feature works the same way. Be aware, the unit can inadvertently become locked, should you fall-asleep on top of the remote control and the POWER button gets held-down for a sustained period of time, long enough to trigger this troublesome feature.

Note this feature's no longer documented in the User Manual as you've unhappily already discovered. mikeadams110@yahoo.com

Follow the steps below to troubleshoot this issue.

  1. Ensure the child lock feature is disabled.
IMPORTANT: If necessary, consult the instruction manual for specific steps about how to disable the child lock feature.
  1. Attempt to open the disc tray.
  2. If the issue is not resolved, turn off the DVD player.
  3. Unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet for 30 seconds.
  4. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet.
  5. Attempt to open the disc tray.
  6. If the disc tray still does not open, simultaneously press the POWER+STOP+EJECT buttons; this will sometimes cause the disc tray to open.
If the issue is still unresolved, service may be required. The Sony® eService Web site at http://eservice.sony.com/ can assist you in obtaining service from a Sony Service Center or locating a Sony Authorized Servicer.

On my Oritron (2001 model), I found the solution just to be turning it off, counting to 60 (about 1 minute), then turning it on again and pressing the tray/eject/open button ... on the machine (my remote works when it wants to for a couple of years, now).

I had the tray locked problem on my Panasonic DVD RP91. The solution was to press power on the remote and stop on the dvd player at the same time. Instantly fixed.

Posted on Jan 29, 2007

Please press the POWER-ON Buttom on the IR-Fernbedienung and at the same time the BACKWARDS-Buttom on the DVD-Player

Posted on Jan 15, 2007

The best solution is the only one. ATTENTION: This solution doesn't work using the remote (I tried to surf and unlock from the comfort of my couch .... no way!) Get off your butt and walk over to the DVD player. The bottom line is that your wife, husband or kid (just like my 2-year-old son did) held down the eject (open/close) button too long and your tray locked. Do the same. Just hold it down (even though the "lock" sign disappears and it shows play-time) keep holding it down until it dispays un-lock. That's that! So easy. Now you can finally get that DVD out that you've been watching over and over for the past 5 days and pop in something new! HALLELLUEAH!
