LOCKED displays when attempting to eject disk from SA-HT670

I have a Panasonic SA-HT670 home theatre. I cannot get any discs to eject. When the change disk, open/close or disk check buttons are pressed, the display says LOCKED. All 5 DVDs that are in there play just fine (so I know they aren't in there crooked or something). I have gone through the menu and don't see an option to lock this. I have looked through the user's manual and don't see it in the trouble shooting section. I have powered the unit off and on, but it still does this. I cannot get any discs in or out! There is currently a DVD in there that belongs to the library and is way overdue. Can you HELP???!!!

Re: LOCKED displays when attempting to eject disk from...

THIS HELPED A BUNCH!! Thank you so much, this unlocked the trays for us. We wound the "gear" (about and inch and a half in there) till the disc loader was copletely risen - and DVD player has returned from the dead.

message from original poster below \/ \/

"I've just spent the last 3 nights trying to fix that same issue with my sa-ht670 player. I ended up pulling out the dvd tray assembly, and making sure there wasn't anything broken inside or obstructing other pieces. Come to find out, my 1 year old had pulled on one of the trays and it pulled the tray off it's tracks. After that, it would just go to "init please wait" forever. I pulled the side track cover off and aligned the tracks manually. Everything had to be absolutely perfect or else you'd get nothing. After the fact, I realized that there were two holes in the bottom of the player that you can take a spare small gear (which is attached to the plastic cover on top of the dvd tray assembly) and stick it in there and manually adjust the tray positions to make sure everything is aligned properly. After messing with it three days, it ended up being quite simple to fix. Everything works like a charm now. If you need details, feel free to email me."

There appears to be a parental lock / password set. If you do not know the password then you can reset it as per the image. Download the manual from link below:

I had to replug things in for my dish and unit sat sidewards to get to plugs. It now says locked and can eject disc, select source. Help

Try this:

Press and hold [?] (Stop) on the main unit and [>10] on the remote control until "INITIALIZED" disappears from the TV. Turn the unit off and on again.

All settings should return to the default values.
Not saying it will work though!

My Panasonic Blu-Ray Home Theatre System Model sa-bt207 unable to read any disc, music or DVD. How do I solve it, never really used the disc part before, is the laser just dirty?

Firstly I would run a Disc cleaner before I did anything else. They are cheap and effective. You can usually find them in computer or electronics stores(Radio Shack for instance)
