Question about Panasonic SC-HT650 System
My 16 month old pressed something on the DVD player while the babysitter was with her and now the DVD player will not open when pressing open/closed. "LOCKED" appears on screen. We are able to go through all 5 discs and play them. How do you unlock it?
Well, at least the child-lockout works, right?
I have a similar Pan. HT system and I suspect you will have to go through the main menu and look for settings regarding 'tamper-proofing' to prevent just such 16 month-olds from inserting their jelly bread into the DVD player.
Your system may differ from ours but you should be able to find that feature in your user manual.
If the manual is gone, you might want to try this page:
Your system is not listed directly but there are several from that series and they may share features.
Downloading of the manuals costs nothing.

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.
