Right solution - Wrong button. It is the INFO button just below the navigation circle on the remote..
AND - I finally found it in the manual after looking in all the wrong places for several hours. On page 13 (Tour of the Remote Control) there is a big grey box in the lower right corner titled "Key Lock Function". You guessed it.

Child Lock The control buttons on the front of the unit can be switched off so that your unit can only be operated using the remote control. 1Press C.LOCK. and SAFE will appear in the display window. None of the buttons on the front of your unit will work. If any buttons on the front of your unit are pressed SAFE will flicker in the display window for a few seconds. 2Press C.LOCK again to switch off the child lock. OFF will appear in the display window. Note – C.LOCK is not available on the DVD mode.
Just got off with the Panasonic people. You have to turn it on, then hold down the VCR play button and channel up button at the same time until the unit turns off. This will reset the whole player. Then turn it back on & it should open!
Quite many possibilities. Since you replaced the IC, I'd figure you have a little understanding of electronics and ESD procedures. You now need to troubleshoot the driver for the display. Do a little research with your DVM... make sure the display is getting V. Should the unit be a uP type system, you are probably looking at the uP display driver circuitry [all in one] being bad and no way around the replacement should you desire a display. Should the unit be slightly older, you may get lucky with finding a cap or transistor problem for the driver. Moreso trans than cap.
Wish it were here.. always easier to take a peak and find the problem when it is in front of me.
