Locked Cd Tray

Whenever I try to open any of the CD trays including the record tray the message 'TRAYS LOCKED' appears. Does anyone know how to disable this function.

  • Anonymous Dec 06, 2007

    The same thing has happened to me and Philips aren't being very helpful. Has anyone got any thoughts on this?

The solution is to turn the machine onto standy and then hold the 'display' button for a few seconds, and voila, the trays are unlocked... geni-arse!

How do I open my CD Tray and remove a trapped DVD? The Display shows "Locked", everytime I try to press eject button on the Receiver.

Unplug the machine. Have a look behind the tray flap. there should be a very small hole to push a paperclip or similar into to release the tray.

Trays locked

Look for a small pin hole on the front of the CD tray area. Take a straightened paper clip or a pin, push it into the hole until you feel resistance. Then press the eject button at the same time as you press firmly on the pin or paper clip. The tray should open. May take a few tries as you have to get the timing right. Good luck with it and I hope this helps.

CD trays will not open.

Use a paper clip. If you push a wire in the holes of each tray it will release the trays. The proper holes look like little dashes on the face of each tray, one end or the other.

My cd trays are locked and wont open on my jvc stereo model #Ca-Hxd77 system #Hxd77 and i dont know how to unlock it.

Most CD trays have a small hole at front for you insert a straightened paperclip about 1-2 mm inwards. This allows release of tray when power is off. I assume this is what you mean by mechanically locked, not locked by software.

You power off then power back on while holding down the fast forward and rewind buttons on the recording side simultaneously. The display moves through a sequence of numbers and the trays will then open.

Pioneer PDR-W839 Jammed Disc Changer (previously posted)

hello poopig1, after further review, I meant to describe this: look for a pinhole in the area of the CD tray to insert a pin...similar to the same pinhole you see on a PC's cd player to eject the tray manually. If there is none, then try this: Open the cover and find the motor that, when turning, performs the tray ejection. Then, turn that motor by hand until the entire tray (or cartridge) is ejected. Then power up and observe the events.

My dvd/cd try does not open when i press the eject button say "locked"

That means your trays are on Child Lock (this is a safety feature to prevent any accidental opening or closing of disc trays by small children when listening to your favorite tracks.)
To solve this, simply switch off your radio to Standby and hold the power button...whilst holding the power button, press open on the tray that is locked....the system will display UNLOCKED on the display of your hi-fi.

That should be it. To lock the tray....repeat the same process on the particular tray u want locked.

Trays locked

Hi, I had the same problem and i found out that if you hold down the fast forward and the rewind buttons with the power on and off button it will reset. It took me a couple of goes but after a while it worked. When you do it keep all of the buttons held down and a series of numbers flash for about a minute then it will reset. Good luck, Jeff.
