The solution is to turn the machine onto standy and then hold the 'display' button for a few seconds, and voila, the trays are unlocked... geni-arse!

The disc tray wont open its locked. I opened it up and tried to fix it. i see that there might not be any lubricant on the bearings. could that be it. but i don't think because it should be that cd trays...

already solved the problem two nights ago. there was a CD slot inside where the lens was at and it was in the way of the control arm " part that goes up and down to grab the cd's. Also there was one other problem and got that one done as well. The part that holds the CD in place was not right so i got it where i wont move.

Recording trouble

Hi again,

I understand. Must be a glitch somewhere. Anyways, I already posted possible solutions here your original posting/problem. They were:
1. Power on the Philips FW-R7, leave the left tray empty and closed. Open the tray and put in a recorded CD (not a CDR but a regular CD from your music collection), close the right tray. Wait a couple of seconds as the FW-R7 reads the CD. Now open the tray, remove the music CD and insert your CDR. The FW-R7 should read the CDR without the error message and record to the CDR from any source. Let me know if this works for you;
2. laser cleaning or realignment (would need a service center);
3. try using lower then 40X blank CDs.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

FW-R7 displays "Locked" when attempting to open CD Trays

You were close, but didn't explain it very well. If you push on the 'DISPLAY' button (left side of machine as you are facing it, about half way down) when the unit is off, it will say something like "DEALER MODE", push it again to return it to regular mode. You may have to press and hold the button to get it to display 'DEALER MODE', then when everything is normal, "DEALER MODE" just goes off and isn't replaced by anything. Hope I explained it well.

CD tray doesn't open

if the unit actually tries to open but does not, it is not locked. a locked unit does not even try to open. it sound like a mechanical misalignment. take it back to get a new one, since it's only 2 days old.

Cd tray jammed

If you turn it off at the mains, wait a few seconds then turn it back on. As soon as you turn the power on, try and press the button for the tray to open. If this dont work, you will have to open up your system and remove this disc yourself. Good luck.

CD malfunction

It sounds like you have put a disc in the tray that the system can not read, so it will just keep trying to read the disc over and over again. If you turn everything off by the plug and wait a few mins the whole system should stop. Put the plug back in and as soon as you turn your system on, try and press the disc open key before the lens gets a chance to start reading it again. If this does not work you may just have a disc jammed. So you will have to get someone to check it out for you if you do not understand what you will be doing, because you may do more harm than good to your system. Good luck.
