Sounds simple, but could the input mode button been pressed accidentally? Try setting this to auto and see if the unlock message switches off. This happened to me! :-)

STR-DE545 Receiver -

I just turned my DVD player off when my STR-DE545 was still in DVD input mode and it came up LOCKED, maybe the input that you are using is not receiving a signal?
