Re: cannot open the disc tray

I see if thats the problem, the memory IC was been shocked by voltage caused by a capacitor, all I can say is to open your cd/dvd and unplug the memory IC and try to put it back, ussually its a 8 pin IC, I have a problem same as this before from a custumer but its a tv reciever.

Hi there,

The disc lock function has been activated on your JVC XV-N320, when in this mode the tray cannot be opened or closed.

If you press the 'eject' button whilst pressing down the 'stop' button on the machine in standby mode the disc lock will deactivate. To turn it back on you follow the same procedure. This is also described in the user manual for this model of TV umder trouble shooting on page 13.

Hope this helps,

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

Philips DVR model HDRW720/17 Display screen shows "Blocked"

Do you have a disc locked up inside? I found that there IS a manual release for the disc tray UNDERNEATH the unit. It is a sort of toggle lever that you have to slide to the other side and that releases the disc. The Manual does not even mention this manual release lever!

Also, it may be hidden or covered by a paper like cover.

Dvd door will not open

with the unit turned off press and hold "8", and then press "x" on the unit until "unlocked" appears on the screen.

This is from page 83 of the manual regarding tray lock feature.

The Disc Tray Will Not Open And/Or There Is A Disc Stuck In The Player. spacer.gif Some DVD Players manufactured prior to 2003 have a Dealer Lock or Child Lock function. This will prevent the panel buttons from operating.

This function is activated by pressing the STOP button on the front panel
and the POWER button on the remote control simultaneously for four seconds in the power on state. Repeating this sequence releases the dealer lock. When the dealer lock in activated, DEALER LOCK ON or DEALER LOCK OFF scrolls on the display.

If this does not resolve your problem there may be an error with in the player. To resolve this try the following these steps:
  1. Unplug the DVD player from the electrical outlet and leave it unplugged for thirty seconds.
  2. Plug the DVD player back in to the electrical outlet, but do not turn the DVD player on.
  3. With the DVD player off, press the [Open/Close] button on the front of the DVD player. The home theater should power on when you press the [Open/Close] button and eject the tray.
The second option worked for me...

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.

DVD Tray is locked

Push and hold down the Open/Close button until "UN-LOC" appears on the FL display (or "Disc Tray Unlocked" appears on the TV screen).

Disc tray locked on JVC XV-N322

there is a small hole in the front of the tray that will accept a straightened paper-clip. gently insert the clip and the tray should release. if the cd/dvd disc is dislodged from being flat in the tray, it may not come out. you might need to open the cover and manipulate the disc to get it back flat in the tray. a good first test is to see if the disc plays. if it does, it is in the tray correctly and should be easily released with the paper clip. the try might work after you release it.
another possible first try would be to gently push inward on the tray after telling it to release. if there is extra tension on the tray it could cause the mechanism to not release. freeing the tension on the tray could be all that you need to get the 'unlock' to release. (kinda like trying to open a door when someone is pushing it very hard against the lock mechanism. it wont be able to move).
good luck
