    This solution resolved nothing. My problem is not with a dvd disc but with the dvd player. My Go VCR/DVD player is LOCKED and I can not find a way to UNLOCK and EJECT my blank dvd disc from the tray.....

You can unlock by pressing and holding the Power switch. Sometimes it will then allow you to eject the disk after it restarts, but not always.

The LOCK/UNLOCK feature is for the DVD+RW type discs. You cannot unlock a DVD+R once it's finalized.

For a DVD+RW,

  1. Place the disc into the machine
  2. Use the UP arrow to go to the top menu.
  3. Press the RIGHT arrow to display the disc information menu
  4. Use the RIGHT/LEFT arrows to select "LOCK/UNLOCK Disc" option.
  5. Press ENTER
  6. Change the disc status
  7. Press ENTER
  8. A "Changing Disc Status" bar appears. Process can take a few seconds.
  9. Menu disappears when process is complete.

DVD disc is stuck in Panasonic DMR-XW300 DVD recorder but somehow child lock is showing. Cannot unlock child lock!


Try pressing and holding the OK (the center button in the arrow key section) and Return (on the lower right of the arrow keys) buttons on the remote control at the same time. You should see the X LOCK message disappear. (Holding these two buttons will toggle the lock on when it is off.) This is shown on page 89 of the manual which is available from Panasonic on the product site: http://www.panasonic.com/au/support/manual-download/players-recorders/video-recorders/dmr-xw300.html . The direct link to the manual is http://www.panasonic.com/content/dam/Panasonic/support_manual/DVD_Recorder/English/rqt9135-l.pdf .

If you are using a universal remote, the code currently in use may not match this feature. Try the original remote if you can. A replacement remote that should match all of the features is here: http://www.tvremotes.com.au/panasonic-remotes/original-panasonic-remote-control-n2qayb000273-dmrxw300gl .

I hope this helps.

Drive do not open


  1. Turn the unit on.
  2. Press [PLAY]on the front panel and [POWER] on the remote control simultaneously, and hold for four seconds.
  3. The display will read either DEALER LOCK ON or DEALER LOCK OFF.
  4. When the display reads DEALER LOCK OFF press [EJECT].
If the disc tray still won't open, unplug the DVD recorder for five minutes and then plug it back in. If it still won't open, the device will require service.

Lock message


Hi!
My DMR-ES10 appears since last month, the same message, and lets myself crazy!


Today, after a desperate try, pressing the buttons, I found the solution:

Simple press the POWER BUTTON and STOP BUTTON of the unit for a few seconds...

VOILá: The UNLOCK message appears in the display and the unit return to operate without the lock message !!!

For Lock again, press the same buttons at same way until appears the Lock message in the display.

This is an undocumented command...

I hope to help you!

Go Video Unlock Code


check the menu settings or (setup) on the dvr 4000 to see if it has options to enable or disable parental lock or to change region settings to region 1.

also the dvds you made are they +r or -r on what brand dvd record disc on dvd-r this may solve the problem but use a quality brand disc like memorex dvd-r it is compatible with many players and recorders also make sure the disc you made on the recorder were finalized.

Display says "LOCKED", won't eject disk, all other functions work. Need unlock procedure.


How I got my DVD from ”lock” condition

My DVD (Panasonic m: DMR-ES10) had gone to ”locked” condition without any warning.

Perhaps the reason was that I transfered the machine when it was on and recording was going…

Guidebook didn´t help to resolve the problem, neither Internet. Finally I managed to solve the promlem . This is how i did step by step:

1) Power on
2) Hello
3) read
4) no disc
5) functions
6) to others
7) setup
8) select down arrow
9) disc
10) select right arrow
11) setings for playback
12) enter
13) ratings (level8)
14) enter
15) No limit
16) enter
17) ”The Recorder is now unlocked” (picture of open lock)
18) enter
19) return
20) return

After this DVD works normally.
