I was searching the web site above for the manual release but i could not find it. You can find the manual there as well as service and support help.
The common cause for this problem I have seen is the disc inside is wedged in between the tray and the chassis. If you find the manual release you can get it out.
If the problem persists you can open the cd chassis and make sure that the tray is lined up with the tray. Try to open and close automaticly and observe to find where is is hanging up at.
If it all lines up and moves smoothly but still will not open in auto Then look for the proximity switches. They are on the outside edges of the tray and may look like a small plastic stake sticking out of the circuit board. These switches must read what we call flags located on the tray. make sure the prox switches are reading that your tray is seated properly. Good luck and happy holidays.

your unit is in protect mode. Try pressing and holding the power and advanced surround buttons. This should turn it on. If it shuts right back off, then you probably have a short in the amp that needs to be repaired.

Pioneer SC LX73 MC ACC Light flashing blue and unit will not power up have looked at fuses CheersBrad

Don't have any info on that particular model, but on other pioneer receivers that means the unit is locked into protect mode. It sensed something wrong with the amp and shut itself down to try and avoid damage. You can try and reset it. Most likely button combination is holding the 'advanced surround' button and power.

How do I unlock my dvd tray? I have a panasonic sa-ht928 five stacker.. When I press unlock it displays on the screan of the dvd player (locked)... Can you help??.. I need to return some...

The only solution you can do is open the unit, maybe the track rail is jam. If ever you open already the unit push the tray outside and push back inside so it will align again. Hope it will helps. Whatever the result feel free to ask.

Thanks for using FIXYA...

Why can't i get my sony turntable to work with my pioneer vsx-d608 receiver

does your receiver have phono in? if yes check at rear mm/mc switch. if not, you need a mm or mc adaptor between turntable and receivers line. mm is movingmagnet and mc is moving coil, guess your sony has moving coil pick-up. the sound signal has to be powered up to use standard auxiliary inputs. hope it helps a bit

Philips Stream system, CD player will not eject. I am not the only person to have had this problem.

Disk may have fallen out of tray and jammed the mechanism. If you can take case off, check to see if this has happened, if not have unit serviced

My cd trays are locked and wont open on my jvc stereo model #Ca-Hxd77 system #Hxd77 and i dont know how to unlock it.

Most CD trays have a small hole at front for you insert a straightened paperclip about 1-2 mm inwards. This allows release of tray when power is off. I assume this is what you mean by mechanically locked, not locked by software.
