Does anyone know the numeric code to unlock the DVD tray inside this Toshiba 19LV61K TV/DVD? There is a disc stuck inside the DVD tray, and the film will play without a problem.

There is no such code to get out the strucked disc. you have to take out it by manual method. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.
If you insist on a numerical code, and have determined, won't do anything without it, try this alpha numerical code {VWXTB 028103820489} Followed by Menu button.
Good luck.

Tray locked on sony dvp-ns77h dvd player

If the Sony DVP-NS77H DVD player displays "TRAY LOCKED" and you can't eject a disc or open the tray, try the following - First turn the unit off. Then, while holding down the eject, play and stop buttons simultaneously (on the front of the DVD player), turn the unit on with the '/O button (also on the front of the player). This released the locked tray for me.

It sounds like the processor in the TV or the DVD player processor is locked up, and if you unplug both units from the wall for 40 MIN, that should reset the processors back to normal.

I have a jvc th-p7 cinema system. and when i try to open the tray it say's locked. but i dont know how to take it off?????

You can lock the tray and prohibit the unwanted disc ejection.
On the center unit ONLY:
While the system is turned off
• The system turns on and "LOCKED" appears on the display
• If you try to eject the disc, "LOCKED" appears to indicate that
the tray is locked.
To cancel
Carry out the same operation again.
• The system turns on and "UNLOCKED" appears on the display

Locked DVD Tray

I'm pretty sure the force disk eject is the same across all Panasonic models - however I couldn't find anything specific for your model number. Still worth a shot, though.

With the unit in standby, press and hold the 'Stop' and 'Ch up' buttons together. It should power up and force the tray open. If this doesn't work, try changing up your timing by pressing and holding 'Stop' first, then a half-second later, press and hold 'Ch up' and keep them both held together. You can also try the opposite.

If none of these work, it will have to be taken apart to get the disc out. If you aren't comfortable trying, it will have to go to service.

Don't know if this will work for you, but I unplugged the player then plugged it back in again whlie holding down the power button. The player did not power up until I released the power button and pressed it again. That did it.

Sony DVP-NC85H Multi-disc DVD Tray locked

Look on the bottom of the unit. There is a hole with the letters ex and op. Shine a light in the hole and you will see a white plastic object with a slot for a slot screwdriver. You can turn this either way but be careful. If you feel resistance and the object does not turn, turn the other direction and the unit will open. Remember if the disc loaded the clamping of the disc is in place so you must turn it the proper way to let the current disc loose hence the op and the ex. Op is open. Ex is exchange.
