Have you tried just rebooting the unit? There is also a mechanical release on the DVD drive. With the unit powered off, unbend a paper clip, look for a small hole(about size of paper clip) in the front of your drive. Slide the clip in until you feel a solid stop and then gently apply pressure until you see the drive come open. You will have to pull the tray out the rest of the way, again gently. After removing the disk, you can gently push the tray back in, or as I prefer, let the unit close it when you power it back up. Let me know if this Fixya's

Key buttons will not operate locking system,i have changed battery but still no good.use master key,gets me into the car but alarm goes off and also when i attempt to drive it.


I have the same problem kinda. Lost my master key and sent my ecu off with a home made 2 button key to program immobiliser. This key works to start the engin and drive but I cannot get the key to program with the alarm and locking system. You can try the following steps as may work for you.

I can get my car into programming mode after step 1 but step 2 does not work for me. The locks do not go off at all, not once or twice. Battery in remote key is fine as LCD lights red.

Can anyone help please?

My dvd player says key lock.... I can power it on but it wont open or close.... I have the remote, what you think I should do? I need the key lock off! Help Me Please...


You have to point the remote to the player, then press and hold the power button for 30 seconds while the key lock message is on the display. This should turn the key lock off.

New DVD read writer not functioning


sounds like the drive lock is not seating properly, (gearing mismatch)  

The drive tray lock is a peg on a round gear which locks into a groove on the underside of the tray (you can see it on the underside on the tray, 

at some point this gear has "slipped" and now does not meet this groove and closes before hitting this groove,   some manual manipulation of the drive tray can solve this but it is tricky

The easiest way is to "pop" the latch,  which allows you to remove the drive tray completely This "latch" is usually a sprung toungue of plastic which normally prevents the removal of the tray,  if this toungue is lifted the tray can continue on the gear train and can be completely removed, (the eject function will roll the gears forwards and backwards without the tray).

all you do then is to press eject (the mechanism gears will roll out) then you just insert the tray at the correct point (usually at full extend) to re-allign the tray lock (sometimes it takes a couple of attempts to get this right)
