I think I may know how to solve your problem. I had a similar issue with the pack and play my mother-in-law gave me.
It seems to never work if you set the play pin up right and try to lock the sides up. Tug and pull all you like it just wont do it. I would suggest that you collapse it completely, then try to lock the sides, short first, while the system is either upside down or on its side. Then lock the longer sides.
This is what worked for me at least. I hope this helps. :)

I cannot get it to fold up small enough to put in bag

You need to release the lock in the bottom then get all 4 of the top rails to release on both sides of the lock mechanism and then pull up from the bottom handle.

How do you put up a graco pack play

Hi, to set up the pack and play, first latch each of the four sides together. (Each side rail latches together in the middle -- just straighten the rail.) Once all four sides are locked and straight, push down on the center of the pack and play bottom (it's probably red) until it snaps into place.

To fold the pack and play up, just follow these instructions in reverse -- pull the bottom up first, then press in the button on each side rail to fold up each side.

Always make sure the pack and play is completely set up and locked before putting a child in it!

Can't get sides to stay up (lock) on our Century fold n go lullaby center

I had the same problem until I found the manual and practiced a bit, When opening, it's important for the middle to still be in a high unlocked position - then they click right in place very easily. The sides won't go up if the center column is down too far first because the middle locks in place automatically and prevents movement of the sides.

When folding it, the floor lock has to be twisted fully in the unlock position and the center column back up in a high position for the sides to fold in (each side as 2 joints to disengage). Unlocking turns the center support column so that all the support tubing underneath can move. If the center column won't come up high, you don't have it unlocked yet.

Here's a Century Fold N Go instruction manual.'

One of the sides(the wider one) is locked in the open position.

On our pen the linkage was famous for binding at the junction(elbow) some slide forward to release, others must be squeezed, the best way to start is to flip it up on its side or rite upside down, just to reroute the pressure and (hopefully) allow the binding junction to release and fold. you'll have to fiddle with it but it should go. if its newer call the manufacturer, faulty bady goods can be cause for very costly legal infractions(they could get sued!)
which means they should try to help you out and hey, you find out your not the only person with this problem on this playpen.
hope it works out for you , Jon

I have a graco century pack n play crib that will not fold down

did you pull the center up before you pushed the buttons on the side? mine is tempermentale too. you must pull the tab inside on the bottom before even touching the sides. then try the longer sides first after the center pull and do the shortest sides last. if not contact graco they may be of assistance, or just take it back it may be defective.

Folding up Cosco play yard

you also need to hold one of the middle indicator tabs on the longer side..because if you don't do that it will not shut... and make sure the 2 legs go inside with the center of the play pen
