Re: Cd jam

Try dismantling the shell and check for any jammed object or broken pieces that might cause the door jamming. if it is a matter of a stuck object that somehow got there, you can remove it and hope for the best. otherwize, you will have to replace the broken pieces, or the whole part.

The cd holder wont open

There's a possibility that the somewhere within the CD changer's mechanism there is something jamming the gears which allow it to open. I remember there was one time the CD changer wasn't opening and it turned out a cd was under in the CD changer's mechanism and I have no idea how it got there. In order to fix your problem you'd most likely have to open the unit and take the CD changer out but don't be afraid, opening and operating on this system is pretty much straight forward.

The cd player will not open when you press the open close button

unfortunatly the mechanism is jammed up for one reason or the other reason #1 a cd is stuck inside #2 the gear just wore out and or it was forced closed by hand instead of pushing the eject/load can try to gently pry this door open while pressing open/eject button that works 40% of the time..if it does not work? it can then be deemed broken out of order.

it's worth a shot trying to pry it open but beware this could either work or really destroy the door/mech/player comes down to this "do you feel lucky" sadly? that's where we're at with this one.

CD changer won't open. Mechanical Error on display

There is a small hole just above the door on most CD changers. Unwind a small paper clip and GENTLY push it into the hole. This should release the door, and let you look inside. Don't force it because you could damage it more than it is already.

The cd changer is of a bad design ! The limit switches from the trays and the gear wheels (plastic material) are **** ! It's a mechanical Problem. You have to disassembly the completely cd changer !

CD changer won't open

There may be a jammed disc in the mechanism - if there is no manual release near the door (there isn't usually on these systems), you may have to open the case and look to make sure there's not a disc jammed somewhere in there.

Sa-pm29 cd-changer jammed

The loading mechanism needs to be rebuilt. There is also an engineering change that should be applied to this unit if it hasn't had the mod already. This is not a home repair. This unit should go to an authorized Panasonic service center.

CD player cover/door won't stay closed

The intermittent version of this seems to be related to the cable that goes to the subwoofer portion. Have seen this behavior when the cable got loose. Unfortunately, I believe that this behavior may get worse in the long run and cause CDs to not play at all.

Doesn't recornize Cd's and won't play cds

I have a AWM-2700U (3 disc changer) that was doing the same thing. I removed the cover and found that the laser lens for the CD player had come out of it "slot". I cleaned it with alcohol and a cotton swab and replaced it in the slot and it has worked for the past 3 months since. Hope it works for you.

CD malfunction

It sounds like you have put a disc in the tray that the system can not read, so it will just keep trying to read the disc over and over again. If you turn everything off by the plug and wait a few mins the whole system should stop. Put the plug back in and as soon as you turn your system on, try and press the disc open key before the lens gets a chance to start reading it again. If this does not work you may just have a disc jammed. So you will have to get someone to check it out for you if you do not understand what you will be doing, because you may do more harm than good to your system. Good luck.
