I tried all of the suggestions....no luck.
So i started pressing buttons and i managed to get the DVD out. What i did was while the unit was off i pressed "Open" and the >>/>>I button. It powered up and it said "Lock" again. I pressed the same buttons again and it opened.
However I think the unit is stuffed. I closed the unit and then tried to open it again and it said locked. I then did what i did above and it said no disk.
Something is going on - can't seem to find a master reset.

Try unplugging the unit from power for 10 minutes then plugging back in to try to reset the system. If this does not solve it you may have a faulty ejection circuit in the unit, when the circuit is activated it locks the system.

Why my system eject cd/ dvd and after that i use combinition keys eject+ stop to lock it, it dosen't read the disc and show's no disc in. how i can fix it?


You can't. CD/DVD or even VHS have sensors. Sensors sending information about empty or loaded. Can be laser are broken too. Laser after loaded dick try to read out information from disc, but if no info, device understand like 'empty disk' or 'just no disk'.
You can try to buy CD/DVD cleaning disc for laser clean, but if driver can't find disc perhaps it not help.

Jvc dvd player won't open


when you hit the eject button try tapping the top above the disk drive. it may be somewhat stuck. if that doesnt fix it you might have a broken belt or a belt may have come off in it. the belt controls the movement of the drive in and out

DVD tray will not open. Lock is not on. I have tried unplugging the unit then plugging it in again. What do you suggest?


I think your DVD player is trying to read the disk, but it can't. Try unplugging the unit. Holding down the eject button and plugging it back in. After it begins to to power up you can release the eject button. What your wanting to do is to get it to eject before it tries to read the disk. Good luck.

Disc tray does not always open


well i understand why the remote won't eject the disk because there is no eject function button on the remote. The top pannel function button's are the only way to eject a disc on this system. on these units I have seen the button's go bad and need replacement. More likely the dvd section of the unit is starting to go bad. Bose has a reasonable factory repair rate. The drive swap is simple but requires some technical skill. Obtaining the drive is difficult as bose does not sell just the drive. I have listed myself and seen some listed on ebay for sale. I hope this helps. Dan

Cannot Eject DVD


There will be a manual eject but its slightly tricky. There will be a small hole(about 1mm diameter) near the tray where you insert the DVD. Just insert a samll pin or something into it and keep shoving it in and out by repeatedly pressing the eject button. If its just a stuck DVD then it will come out in a JIFFy. Otherwise send it for repairs as taking the unit apart might void your warranty! Good luck!

Display says "LOCKED", won't eject disk, all other functions work. Need unlock procedure.


Had the same problem. Found an answer digging around and it worked: Press the STOP button and the OPEN button at the same time. Hold for about 10 seconds and it UNLOCKS.
I even went back to Bestbuy and they had no clue. But it worked!
Good luck.
