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.

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.

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.
Thanks for using FixYa

I need assembly directions for evenflo exersaucer triple fun.

1. Remove toys and seat from the exersaucer.
2. Fold exersaucer, but do not let the tray lock to the base. With exersaucer flat on the floor, twist each leg assembly (B) fully clockwise until it stops. Fully depress one of the pedestal locking tabs (C) then push on the leg assembly (B); leg will partially fold. Repeat this for all four legs. After pressing the fourth pedestal locking tab (C), the Exersaucer will fold with the tray (D) rotating toward the base (E). Make sure all four tray locks. (F) are locked onto the base before trying to carry exersaucer.
3. Place your fingers beneath the legs (A) push upward to disconnect the leg assemblies from the pedestals (B). Repeat for all 4 leg assemblies.
4. After all four legs have been disconnected from the pedestals, remove tray assembly (C) from the base (D).
5. Turn tray (C) upside down and remove both end caps (E) from beneath.
6. Squeeze both locking tabs (F) on each side of the tray to disconnect and seperate the tray halves (C). 7. Connect tray halves (C) to form activity table.
7. Connect tray halves (C) to form activity table.
8. Rotate leg assemblies (A) fully clockwise until they lock into postition. Make sure all four legs lock (G) are locked properly into the uper leg pedestal (H). Also make sure all four leg locks (I) are sticking out past the edge of the tray.
9. Turn table over and install two end caps (E). Make sure both end caps lock into place. NOTE: one end cap installs from above and the other installs from below.
10. Install toys on activity table. If desired, adjust table to the appropriate height for your child. IMPORTANT: NEVER use stage 3 without end caps!
