We had the same Pioneer DVD "tray lock" problem and I tried holding the button for 10 seconds and nothing happened. Tried 30 seconds, nothing happened. Tried almost a minute and nothing happened.

What worked: Not sure how long I held it the last time, but was holding it down while very very gently picking with my nails at the edge of the tray to try to pry it out a bit, and it opened! Now it seems to be working again.

Pioneer HTZ-77DV no power

No, the capacitors are not shot. I don't know why everyone fixates on that. There's allot more to electronics than capacitors. Pioneer is not particularly known for bad capacitors, as they use a higher grade part. It could be a power supply problem. It could have a bad microprocessor(computer) IC. It could have DC Offset, meaning a damaged amplifier. As to whether it's worth fixing, I can give you more information. For more information, or should you have further questions, please visit my website at You may contact me through the website. Thank you.

I am unable to latch the slide tray into my 760H Kodak carousel projector. The lamp and fan are working. Any suggestions? Thanks

I think I already answered this one, but it still appears in my question cue.
Make sure the locking ring (on the top of the tray) is on TIGHT on the slide tray. Turn the tray upside down. Rotate the metal plate until the arrow stamped into it lines up with the notch on the bottom of the plastic tray. That should solve your problem. Jim

How can i lock my keyboard on my laptop?

download and install it.

Double-click on kkl (kid-key-lock) icon in system tray. Configure mouse & keyboard as per your wish. (my suggestion, dont change any passwords)

To undo it, just type kklquit.

For next use, start kkl (All Programs - kkl), type kklsetup.
Windows also gives you a way to lock keyboard.
Press Windows+U.
Go to "Make the keyboard easier to use"
Check "Turn on filter keys"
Keyboard is locked. All you get is beeps when you type.

To undo this, double click the new clock-icon in system tray.
Uncheck Filter Keys.

Hope my solution helps you.

Samsung ML-2250 the printer is no longer able to feed paper from paper tray. Just spins and doesn't print.

Hi, the only suggestion I could give you is to look where the paper leaves the tray to make sure there are no pieces from a paper jam. Some people even tried using a vacuum cleaner to try cleaning it out.

Other suggestion is to make sure you have the proper paper size selected.
Start, control panel, printers, your printer, printer preferences.

The mechanism that lifts the paper in the In tray up to the paper wheels may either be jammed or broken.

I guess that will help.

Thanks for using fixya...

If the display says "Locked" when trying to open tray, then the child lock is on and needs to be turned off. You can find it on page 24 of your owners manual or you can download the manual from this link.
If the display says "Tray Locked", then Sony suggests that you take it to a service center for repair. I would suggest that you try unplugging it for several hours and see if it will open the tray when plugged in.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.
If you need further assistance please comment to this post and I will try to help you further.
