My go video is locked. How do i unlock it?

You can unlock by pressing and holding the Power switch. Sometimes it will then allow you to eject the disk after it restarts, but not always.

How I got my DVD from ”lock” condition

My DVD (Panasonic m: DMR-ES10) had gone to ”locked” condition without any warning.

Perhaps the reason was that I transfered the machine when it was on and recording was going…

Guidebook didn´t help to resolve the problem, neither Internet. Finally I managed to solve the promlem . This is how i did step by step:

1) Power on
2) Hello
3) read
4) no disc
5) functions
6) to others
7) setup
8) select down arrow
9) disc
10) select right arrow
11) setings for playback
12) enter
13) ratings (level8)
14) enter
15) No limit
16) enter
17) ”The Recorder is now unlocked” (picture of open lock)
18) enter
19) return
20) return

After this DVD works normally.
