I came up with this problem as well. I think the issue comes up when the unit over heats. I opened up looking for a power supply issue, and have not been able to find any capacitors that might have blown. First time this happened, I waited a few hours, and the unit slowly started to come back to life, and I was able to eject the disc. You can hear the player attempting to spin the disc, but failing to, then going back to off mode. Pressing the play or power button attempt to start the disc again.

This is only a temporary solution for this problem. I am working on finding the direct cause of this issue.

IF YOU ARE FAMILIAR WITH A SOLDERING IRON THIS IS A VERY SIMPLE FIX, IT IS SIMPLY A MATTER OF FAILED CAPACITORS ON THE POWER SUPPLY COMPONENT BOARD.
USUALLY A PAIR OF THEM OR MAYBE 3, VERY SIMILAR TO THE SAME ISSUE WITH PHILIPS DVP-642 MODEL.
REMOVE THE TOP <WHICH YOU HAVE TO DO TO REMOVE THE DVD> AND YOU WILL SEE THE BULGED OUT CAPACITORS, THEY WILL PROBABLY HAVE GUNK ON TOP OF THEM.

My player would not eject the disc and when you tried to turn the unit on the standby light would just blink. Following the advice above...sure enough I opened it up and started looking at the capacitors on the power supply board. There's only two boards in the DVP642 plus the disc reader. One of the capacitors had a slight bulge at the top and the bottom. I used the same size (1000uf) but a larger voltage. The voltage didn't really make a difference. Soldered in a new one and it was good to go. I'm surprised that was all that was wrong with it. Thanks.

Why I can't open or close the dvd tray?


You need to unlock the tray. The instructions are in your owner's manual.
Common unlock codes are:
Power off the DVD and hold the stop button for 5 seconds, then press eject.
or
Power off the DVD and hold the eject button for 5 seconds
Some models need the power on when you do this. I could not find an online manual for details.

I put in a dvd into the dvd player, and went to eject it. I pressed the eject button and a "locked" caption came up on the screen. I dont have the owners manual and I cant figure out how to...


You may have enabled the child lock feature, try pressing the Return, Enter and Power buttons together to toggle the lock off. If this is disabled and you still can't open the tray, turn off the unit and unplug it. After 30 seconds or so, plug the unit back into the electrical outlet. Attempt to open the tray. If this does not solve the problem, try pressing Power + Stop + Eject buttons together. Also try pressing Disc1 + Stop + Eject simultaneously (if a disc1 button is on the remote or player).

If the error message is t - L C K or persists after trying all of the above steps, then you need the unit serviced.

The manual is available at the Sony support site: http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-documents.pl?mdl=DVPSR200PB .

I hope this helps.

2003 Honda Accord Ex - navigation stopped functioning


Hi, it could be that the screen is in the off position, press daylight/night button twice. From what I've read in other forums pressing that button twice turns the sat nav screen off. Buying an updated DVD will not solve the problem. you can also try a dvd cleaner.
Your lucky if your progress bar has fully loaded up. Mine hung up with about 2% and will not respond in any way now, I have to send it away to Alpine for fixing. Hope this helps

Will not turn on or reset


First try pressing and holding the stop and channel up buttons (at the same time) on the unit (not the remote) for about five seconds.

If that doesn't work, try pressing and holding the stop and power buttons at the same time.

DVD went in...and won't come out


Whatever you do, DON'T try ejecting it manually. it can ruin the dvd mechanism. The problem is in the dvd power supply. If you have some soldering skills and are good with a soldering iron(temperature controlled is best) you can resolder all the three-legged regulators on the dvd power supply board(small board to the right front of chassis). Good success, Meder's Tv
