Question about Philips FW-R7 CD Shelf System

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

I've read the manual over and over again with no luck. We've unplugged the unit, turned on/off demo mode, and still no success opening the cd trays. Both trays will not open, and the display reads "Locked". Please help!

    After a power failure caused by a storm the unit is now stuck in Dealer's display mode and all disc trays are locked.
    Pushing the display button does not solve the situation.
    The radio is all that works.

    Woo-hoo! Got rid of dealer's display by holding down the "Stop" button for about 3 or 4 seconds. Only trouble now is the CD trays are still locked. Jimmy

    The 'Unlocked' CD tray will not open even though it displays 'OPEN'. Press "Open" again and the display shows 10 34:12 . There 10 songs on the CD and it plays normally. The system just will not open the tray. I have unplugged the system and also done a system reset.

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. nyati585@aol.com

Philips HDRW 720/17 stuck in '':demo'' mode???


Okay. I found that there IS a manual release for the disc tray UNDERNEATH the unit. It is a sort of toggle lever that you have to slide to the other side and that releases the disc. The Manual does not even mention this manual release lever!

Also, it may be hidden or covered by a paper like cover.

Toshiba sd-3990 Disc-drawer won't open


I was given one of these the other day. I was told the drawer wouldn't open yet the machine seemed to function fine. I removed the six screws holding the top on the box and then removed the four screws holding the drawer assembly in place. As you lift the drawer assembly out of the box, make sure you release the two pieces of black retaining tape holding the data cable to the box floor. Turn the drawer over and you will see that there is a little sideways bar mounted on the front underside of the drawer assembly. This is sticking. As you press the OPEN button, jiggle this bar and the drawer will open. You may have to manually move the drawer cogwheel a little to help free it up. Hope this helps.

Stuck in demo mode


When you are in STANDBY mode hold the menu button for a few seconds and a special menu should pop up. In this menu you should be able to set the clock, turn off or on the beep, and take your unit out of demo mode. Good luck.

Purchased a Bose Lifestyle 38 demonstration model and can't get it off demo mode now


Unplug the unit for 10 seconds. Plug it back in and repeatedly push the "eject button" until it displays "opening tray". Take out the disc and put in whatever you like.

Cant turn off the demo mode


There is often confusion in the way the manual states how to achieve removing demo mode. Because this is listed in the "Menu System" section of the manual and assumes you read from page 1 of the manual that you will know to enter the menu in this section of the manual. Here is step by step instructions on removing demo mode on your unit. 1. Go to standby mode 2. Press and hold the menu button till the menu comes up 3. Press control knob towards AM or FM to scroll through menu till you locate "Demo On" 4. Press control knob straight in for approximately 3 seconds till it switches to "Demo Off" 5. Hit menu button again to exit menu

System unresponsive when modes are switched


Sounds like there may be a glitch in the microprocesor. Make sure when you unplug it that you leave it along for a few days and is there any type of clock or standby batterys in it take them out as well. If that dosent correct the problem your gonna need a service manual to trace the switch pulse to see if the units Switch matrix lines are low or lost because of a faulty micro or a bad componet like a small caps they install on the matrix to keep noise off them. Hard one to call with out seeing unit and analizing unit Good Luck
