On the top of the player there is a slider. When it is showing orange next to it your player is "Locked" so accidental button pushing wont mess up your tunes. Slide it over so it shows only white instead of orange and your player should be just fine.

Try to turn on and says key locked shuting down


When an mp3 player is locked and you try to turn it on, it will shut down again. You have the keys locked by the switch on the back. Flip the button that says "LOCK >" to the left to cover the little red dot and it should be unlocked, then try turning it on again.

Sansa Express mp3 locked. How to unlock n access the mp3 player?


The lock symbol means that the hold is on. Next to the power button is the hold switch. Make sure the switch is away from the power button so that the red is not showing. If the hold is off and it is still showing the hold symbol, then the hold button may be messed up and may need replacing. But first, do this to check that it isn't just malfunctioning: First, try a soft reset. Do this by pressing the center button and the up volume button simultaneously and try turning it on. If that does not work for you, you will need to get a micro sd card (it can be a dummy) and insert it into the slot on the side of the mp3 player. If you do not have one, you can use one of the round edges of a paper clip (be careful) to get it to come on. When you put either in, it should come on automatically, but if not, just press the power button. This should work.

Mp3 player says key locked system shut down


I had this same problem on another RCA player.. with no instructions manual it was hard to figure out what keys locked meant. Then I noticed a little slider on the side of the player, it has a little icon of a pad lock on it. Once I slid this back, the keys lock problem went away and I was able to listen to my music once again.

My best guess of what keys locked means.. you don't want you mp3 player to turn on when you put it in your pocket with your keys, so you change the slider to be locked, when your sit down and your keys are pressing against your on button, the mp3 player will shut off... as we all have experienced in frustration.. saving your battery.

Perhaps RCA should make this slider bright orange so it pops out and does not blend in so much, or they should put it right next to the on button.

You have locked the keys, look for a switch with a red , white or orange lock icon and move it then try to turn it on. The switch should be on the side of the player, either at the top, bottom or sides of the screen.
