To turn on the dealer lock function: Turn the DVD player on. Press the Stop button on the front panel and the Power button on the remote control simultaneously for four seconds. Note: When the dealer lock function is active, DEALER LOCK ON or DEALER LOCK OFF scrolls on the FLT display. this is from samsung's site

I also have the "LOCK" functin on the front panel. I tired troubleshooting by holding the "STOP" button on the front panel and Power Button on remote control simultaneously for four seconds and no joy. The unit will either cycle from on and off our it starts to play the DVD that is stuck inside the unit. All other functions work on the unit work just fine and only get the "LOCK" display when I try to eject the DVD from the unit.

By parental control I don't know if you mean child lock. If that's the case you should be able to turn it off by pressing child lock on the remote control until off shows in the display window.
