You mean ejecting a CD on a portable CD player or a regular cd player. Some CD players have a hold or lock function, try reaching for your players manual and read through the CD lock function.

    There is a cd tray lock function, you can download the manuals here:

    The procedure is on page 19, to unlock and lock, just press the button with the square symbol (stop button) of the cd together with the power button, it will change to lock or unlock...

How do I open my CD Tray and remove a trapped DVD? The Display shows "Locked", everytime I try to press eject button on the Receiver.

Unplug the machine. Have a look behind the tray flap. there should be a very small hole to push a paperclip or similar into to release the tray.

My JVC TH-G30 gives me a locked message when I try to open the load tray what should I do?

hello Setting the disc ejection lock
You can lock the disc tray to prevent the disc form
being ejected.
When the main unit is turned off, hold down the STOP
key at the front panel for 5 seconds
If you attempt to open the disc tray by pressing
OPEN/CLOSE key, the disc tray does not open and
“LOCKED” appears in the display window.
To cancel the disc ejection lock, hold down the STOP
key at the front panel for 5 seconds again when the
main unit is turned off.
“UNLOCKED” is displayed in the display window.
Before the main unit is turned off, DVD/CD function
should be selected.

Jvc dvd receiver xv-thu1 says locked when i press eject

Hello Dude !

There reasons why your DVD tray won't eject
1, a cd got stuck inside
2, Motor belts are loose
3, Loading motor faulty
4, Main loading gear damaged
5, Somebody must have pushed the loading cd tray forcing it to load and waiting for it to load the cd by its self so it has jumped its setting .
If so you have to remove the loading tray and put back correclty then it should load by its self .

Good luck

Cd locked

Hello there..

If the cd is stuck in the device, here is how you take it out.

You should be able to see a small hole near the eject button, you need to stick a pin into the hole while gently pulling out the trey. There will be no damage done, this hole is there fore this sole purpose. Hope this can be of help.

Best regards

How do i unlock a jvc home stereo

On the unit, press the stop button and the cd eject button at the same time. The screen will say locked still. Release them and press them together again at the same time. The screen will now read unlocked. You can then eject the cd.

"Locked" CD does not come out

Turn off the power, and then hold down the "stop" button on the actual system (not the remote). While you're holding down "stop," push the "eject" button on the system and it should say "unlocked." If ever for some crazy reason you might want your tray to lock again, just do the exact same thing until it says "locked."

I have this problem all the time and it's sooooo annoying. It just seems to happen randomly every now and then.

Locked dvd tray.

To unlock, manually press and HOLD the open/close button & the stop button simultaneously, and HOLD them both down until the lock picture disappears.   The DVD will eject when you press the open/close button. 


To lock the DVD inside the machine, repeat the same step, and it will lock it inside.
