I contacted RCA and they said to make sure that the switch on the side is in the unlock position. If that does not work resest it by taking the battery out for one minute. That did not work for mine so she said it was defective. Since I did not have a receipt or an exact date of purchase, they will only refund me $42.55, and I think it only has a one year warranty, after that your on your own. Hope this helps.

My daughter's player had this problem. Would not unlock. The lock switch on the pc board was worn out, loose, or just plain defective. To fix, I opened the player's case, clipped the inside tabs on the plastic lock lever and made sure the pc switch was in the unlock position, then reassembled. Lock function is now disabled permanently, but the buttons are stiff enough. Still haven't fixed the broken batt cover, but at least she can use it now. RCA S1000A

How do I unlock the steering wheel when the key won't turn

You can't. Wiggle the key and move the steering as much as possible back and forth as you do it. You can also strike the lock cylinder with a hammer handle, this may dislodge the stuck ignition lock cylinder pin.

Ignition switch key lock solenoid passat

when you shut it off were the wheels cranked sideways-sometimes this puts pressure on the locking system and won't let it disengage-try moving the steering wheel back and forth while applying pressure to the key-I hope this helps-cheers Denny

Key is stuck in ignition. Depressing the "unlock"

Somtimes you need to turn the steering wheel a little to allow the lock to engage.

Try depress the unlock button while moving the steering back and forth a little. Try a lot..
If not work, drape a scarf or towel over steering column to hide key in ignition, and use spare key to open door lock. You do have spare key?
Check your insurance, you may have lock smith lock out coverage.
Good luck.

2001cav 2.2 put the key in and can't turn itj everthing is locked up any ideas.

Does your vehicle have a security system? If so, it might need reset. This would cause it to lock up. Try moving the steering wheel back and forth, left to right, while you are trying to turn the key. You might be able to get it unlocked this way. Your steering column may have locked up. If not, you may need to get a new ignition switch. I would try moving it back and forth. Don't be afraid to give the steering wheel so major pressure. Hope this helps.

Error on printer

There is a safety lock on the scanner that may be in the locked position. Turn the unit off and locate the green lock lever/switch under the scanner where the paper comes out. It will be labeled with a icon (picture) of a lock (unlocked and locked). Move it to the unlocked and locked position multiple times, ending up in the unlocked position. It may be stuck so moving it back and forth may release it. Turn it back on and try it.
