Question about Sony DVP-S330 DVD Player

1 Answer

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

I think we have accidentally put the Sony DVP-S330 DVD player into a dealer lock setting. The disk that is in the player now plays fine, and all functions work, but when we try the Open button the display reads "LOCKED" and the drawer will not open. The owner's manual and the Sony web site only say to check with the dealer or repair center when this happens. From reading here and at other sites, I think we are stuck in a dealer lock setting, which allows a dealer to put the machine on display with a disk playing and prevent customers in the store from removing the disk. I've tried unplugging the machine and leaving it unplugged for 15 minutes. I've tried holding Open & Power & Return all at once, and a few other key combinations, but nothing has worked yet.

Had the same problem. Found an answer digging around and it worked: Press the STOP button and the OPEN button at the same time. Hold for about 10 seconds and it UNLOCKS.
I even went back to Bestbuy and they had no clue. But it worked!
Good luck.

Your system is in child lock mode. I had this exact problem this week. You need to put the system into standby mode and then press return, then enter then on/off and it will be unlocked.
