Sony DVP-NC85H refuses to eject tray, claims LOCKED

If your DVP-NC85H develops the tendency to display LOCKED even though you've cleared the parental control the best you could (even though you possibly never had it actually set in the first place) then welcome to the club!

Instead of paying Sony service $150 for a new device as they ask you to do I will strongly suggest you invest a few bucks and get the service manual, which will teach you a few good tricks, like seeing how many hours you have killed watching DVDs or listening to CDs.

The one of particular interest under the circumstances, of course, will be initializing to factory defaults.
