Question about Sanyo DVD-SL20 DVD Player

1 Answer

Dvd tray is locked and i cant find the manual to unlock it.

My four year old has pressed a combination of buttons to lock the disc tray on our dvd player. It is a Sanyo and i have misplaced the manual. I know it must be very easy to get the right combination of keys to unlock it but not having done it before, I must be pressing the wrong combinations at the wrong time.

I have also tried powering it off while holding in the open tray button. I have removed all power including plugs while trying the same thing - no luck!

Any advice or help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in adveance Robbie Stephen

We have a Samsung Digital Home Theater System HT-DM150. After some guests were fiddling with the remote, we find that we cannot eject a DVD that was inserted. The DVD plays OK, but when we try to eject,...


Samsung Home Theater Systems have a Dealer Lock or Tray Lock Function that prevents the disc tray from being opened.
There are four procedures for turning off the Dealer Lock function. Try one, then the other, to see which works on your system.
Unlocking Procedure 1 To turn off the Dealer Lock function, follow these steps:
  1. Turn on your Home Theater System.
  2. Press the Stop button on the front panel and the Power button on the remote control simultaneously for four seconds.
Note: Repeating the two steps above turns the dealer lock on again.
Unlocking Procedure 2 To turn off the Dealer Lock function, follow these steps
  1. Turn on your Home Theater System.
  2. Press and hold the Function button on the front panel for 3 seconds. The display shows the word Unlock.
Note: Repeating the two steps above turns the dealer lock on again.
Unlocking Procedure 3 To turn off the Dealer Lock function, follow these steps
  1. Turn on your Home Theater System.
  2. Press and hold the Open/Close button on the DVD player on the front panel for more than 4 seconds.
Note: Repeating the two steps above turns Dealer Lock on again.
Unlocking Procedure 4 To turn off the Dealer Lock function, follow these steps
  1. Using the HTS remote press the Menu button + 712, and the HTS will display CAN OPEN.
The Dealer Lock feature is mainly used by retailers to ensure that the display discs are not removed. However, parents of young children may find this feature very useful as well.

This is one for DVD-R100 (not R100A). Tell me if it works.
  1. Turn on the player (without a disc inserted)
  2. Press and hold PLAY and FW (or STOP)
  3. "No Disc" is displayed
  4. Release the keys
  5. Press SUBTITLE, REPEAT (or just SUBTITLE or just REPEAT or MENU)
  6. Enter the corresponding combination for your current RC (see top of the page)
  7. Current RC should be displayed
  8. Press the button for the desired RC (9=codefree)
  9. Open the disc tray
  10. Turn the player off
This is another I found.
  1. Power on your player with no disc in the tray
  2. Press REPEAT for 5 seconds
  3. Enter the corresponding combination for your current RC (see top of the page)
  4. Current RC should be displayed
  5. Press the button for the desired RC (9=multi-region)
  6. (Press OPEN)
  7. Power off your player

OPEN•CLOSE buttons for at least 3 seconds.

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.
