Question about Philips HTS3410D/37 700W DVD Home Theater System System
The door where i put dvd's and cd's won't open and the on screen display simply states " locked" i have never seen this happen and i have no idea how it happened,i cam home, went to put in a movie and it wouldn't open.there is no disc inside the unit as i have taken the top and front off.when i push the input button numerous times to get me to dvd the door opens and then closes but i can not open or close the door using the eject button.
I had the same problem for my panasonic dvd player (ht540). Neither of the above solutions worked so I found this one on the panasonic website:
1. turn off unit by holding down the POWER button for 10 seconds.
2. unplug the power cord and wait for one minute.
3. plug the cord back in and turn on the unit
4. when the dvd begins to play, press "EJECT".
It worked for me. The site for other troubleshooting is:

Don't know if this will work for your dvd player, however I just fixed my Panasonic DVD S53. Turn it off. Flip it on its back, with the front of the player facing away from you and look for a circular indention in the upper right hand area. Should have an embossed OPEN with an arrow. Disconnect from power source.Take a flashlight and look into the slot on the left. You will see the edges of tiny gears. Take a pointy wooden (do not use anything metal) skewer (you know the kind you use for grilling shrimp) and gently turn the gears in a counter clockwise motion. The door will open and the tray should release. Remove any CD that may have been in the machine. Flip it back over, plug in and turn on. Tray will automatically go back in. Push the open button and it should now work properly. If not, at least you would have gotten a CD out of the machine had one been in the tray. This was really helpful to me since a Neflix movie had been caught inside! My player works fine now. And if it happens again, at least I know how to get it to release. Hope this helps. Regards, Doll

According to the manual you can: while the unit is off - press and hold "stop" and then press eject - it should turn on and show unlocked in the display It just doesn't work for me - nothing happens - please post if this solves your problem
