How to unlock the Player

When deactivating this feature, a deactivation file is produced for each device affected by this feature and emailed to the Account Admins only. The deactivation file must be written on a USB flash drive. While the player is off, you need to plug in the USB flash drive with the deactivation file on the player’s USB ports, then start the boot-up sequence in order for the lockdown setting to be de-activated. Reflashing the device will not do anything.

The deactivation file will be in this format (unlock_Player’s-IDScreen-ID ) in order to know which file to use on which player.

Example:

  • Player’s-ID= 12345
  • Screen-ID= abc1234

The unlock file that will be produced upon disabling the Lock-Down feature on that player will be named as:

  • unlock_12345abc1234
