Turn the lock switch ot the unlock posiiton, and then hold in the reset button - should get you back to normal.

Hello, I have jusy bought a HTS3011 home theatre system, but I had try to play a lot of dvd s, and I had an error related to the disc regionin the most part of the discs I tried. Can someone help me? As I...


Hello Patricia -

Please follow the instructions below for unlocking your Philips HTS3011


1. Switch on the DVD player
2. OPEN the disc tray
3. Key 9 9 9 9 0 using the Philips remote control supplied with the DVD player
4. Press PLAY. The disc tray will close.
5. Switch the player OFF then switch ON again.
6. To test, play a disc from a region which was previously locked.

If it does not work the first time, switch the player off and back on, then try again.

This is a verified unlock method, but I was unable to confirm whether it works for players sold locked to Region 1 (North America). If you have a Region 1 player and the method above does not work, you will not be able to unlock your player.

Please note: Unlocking a DVD player may invalidate the warranty. Unlock sequences may not work with some firmware updates and some DVD players have been damaged through failed attempts to unlock them. Unlocking your DVD player is done at your own risk.

Why would my philps lock up and wont release the unlock at times.


There is a hold/lock switch on the player - you need to unlock it. Refer to your user's manual in order to see a picture of where this hold/lock switch is.

Stuck on "lock"


this happened to me but i'm not sure it will work for you.. try to put the actual switch into lock mode (push it firmly into lock mode) then slowly push it back to the unlock mode.. if it doesnt work the first time try it a couple of more times. it worked for me..

Philips GoGear 4GB Mp3 wont charge anymore. I need to know how to fix it.


Make sure the lock switch wasn't accidentally engaged. If it is unlocked, and it's still not charging, run a Repair in the Philips Device Manager. If it still will not charge, then the issue is hardware-related - contact Philips and find out if the player is still in warranty.

Philips dvp 5992 Disk drive wont open


HELLO MY NAME IS ANDREI
I THINK YOU MIGHT OF LOCK THE DISC. BY DOING THIS YOU BLOCK THE PLAYBACK OF THE CURRENT DISC. SUBSEQUENT ACESS TO A LOCKED DISC REQUIRES A SIX DIGIT PASSWORD THE DEFAULT PASSWORD IS 136900. THIS WILL UNLOCK THE DISC LOCK FEATURE. MAKE SURE YOU GO YO SETUP AND CHOOSE UNLOCK DISC LOCK PERMANENTLY OR IT WILL KEEP DOING IT EVERYTIME YOU PLAY THE SAME DISC. HOPE THIS MIGHT OF SOLVED YOUR PROBLEM.

Locked


Switch the lock symbol on the bottom of the player to unlock the little button from left to right. That should do the trick.

Keeps on switching off and on not getting the menu option


the lock display means that u accidentally pushed up the lock button... the lock button is on the top left side of the mp3 and u slide it DOWN to UNlock. its probably switching off because whenever u run out of batteries it automatically switches off to save energy. and u hve to charge it for 5hrs b4 u can start using it... so that might be why its not working all that gr8 anymore.

My mp3 lock is stuck. Please Help!


I contacted RCA and they said to make sure that the switch on the side is in the unlock position. If that does not work resest it by taking the battery out for one minute. That did not work for mine so she said it was defective. Since I did not have a receipt or an exact date of purchase, they will only refund me $42.55, and I think it only has a one year warranty, after that your on your own. Hope this helps.
