I contacted RCA and they said to make sure that the switch on the side is in the unlock position. If that does not work resest it by taking the battery out for one minute. That did not work for mine so she said it was defective. Since I did not have a receipt or an exact date of purchase, they will only refund me $42.55, and I think it only has a one year warranty, after that your on your own. Hope this helps.

My daughter's player had this problem. Would not unlock. The lock switch on the pc board was worn out, loose, or just plain defective. To fix, I opened the player's case, clipped the inside tabs on the plastic lock lever and made sure the pc switch was in the unlock position, then reassembled. Lock function is now disabled permanently, but the buttons are stiff enough. Still haven't fixed the broken batt cover, but at least she can use it now. RCA S1000A

How do you manually lock or unlock the drivers door with the key on a dodge caliber 2007


This is a problem when people use the FOBs all the time. The key lock corrodes and won't turn. Spray some lube in it and work it back and forth. If and when it starts to move, use more lube. It has to be cleaned out. If it doesn't move, you'll have to replace it. DO NOT use so much pressure to turn it and it bends the key.

What could it be when I can't get my key to turn the ignition ... my car was parked at work and when I returned to start it after work it wouldn't turn and my steering wheel wouldn't move.


It is possible that the steering lock is applying so much pressure on the key lock it will not turn. Try turning the steering wheel one way or the other way and then try turning the key.

Does your vehicle have a security system? If so, it might need reset. This would cause it to lock up. Try moving the steering wheel back and forth, left to right, while you are trying to turn the key. You might be able to get it unlocked this way. Your steering column may have locked up. If not, you may need to get a new ignition switch. I would try moving it back and forth. Don't be afraid to give the steering wheel so major pressure. Hope this helps.

Locked steering wheel


Try having someone rock the car frontwards and backwards, while you rock the steering wheel back and forth and try to turn the key - it sounds like you're jammed up hard against the steering column lock.

Error on printer


There is a safety lock on the scanner that may be in the locked position. Turn the unit off and locate the green lock lever/switch under the scanner where the paper comes out. It will be labeled with a icon (picture) of a lock (unlocked and locked). Move it to the unlocked and locked position multiple times, ending up in the unlocked position. It may be stuck so moving it back and forth may release it. Turn it back on and try it.
