Question about Sony BDP-S300 Blu-Ray Disc Player

2 Answers

Display says "LOCKED", won't eject disk, all other functions work. Need unlock procedure.

I think we have accidentally put the Sony DVP-S330 DVD player into a dealer lock setting. The disk that is in the player now plays fine, and all functions work, but when we try the Open button the display reads "LOCKED" and the drawer will not open. The owner's manual and the Sony web site only say to check with the dealer or repair center when this happens. From reading here and at other sites, I think we are stuck in a dealer lock setting, which allows a dealer to put the machine on display with a disk playing and prevent customers in the store from removing the disk. I've tried unplugging the machine and leaving it unplugged for 15 minutes. I've tried holding Open & Power & Return all at once, and a few other key combinations, but nothing has worked yet. display says locked, drawer won't open

    In this instance, there is no disk in the drive, or at least the player says " no disc". I did try the solution posted here, as well as one that the Call Centre at Sony Canada suggested, which was:

    hold down Open+Power+Stop at the same time, it also did not open the drawer. Mine was the display model at the store, the only one remaining. I'm not sure if it was programmed to lock so that customers wouldn't steal the DVD or not. Any ideas?

How I got my DVD from ”lock” condition

My DVD (Panasonic m: DMR-ES10) had gone to ”locked” condition without any warning.

Perhaps the reason was that I transfered the machine when it was on and recording was going…

Guidebook didn´t help to resolve the problem, neither Internet. Finally I managed to solve the promlem . This is how i did step by step:

1) Power on
2) Hello
3) read
4) no disc
5) functions
6) to others
7) setup
8) select down arrow
9) disc
10) select right arrow
11) setings for playback
12) enter
13) ratings (level8)
14) enter
15) No limit
16) enter
17) ”The Recorder is now unlocked” (picture of open lock)
18) enter
19) return
20) return

After this DVD works normally.

Had the same problem. Found an answer digging around and it worked: Press the STOP button and the OPEN button at the same time. Hold for about 10 seconds and it UNLOCKS.
I even went back to Bestbuy and they had no clue. But it worked!
Good luck.

Your system is in child lock mode. I had this exact problem this week. You need to put the system into standby mode and then press return, then enter then on/off and it will be unlocked.
