What does the display read when this happens, I have experience with these, does it say disc recover? also when the laser reader gets old, it may be done, unless you can maybe find someone with replacement. Old or scratched cds won't read well, or skip also.

Cue button is sticking as well as all other


There is no other option than cleaning.
The player must be taken apart to clean those knobs and housing.

SL-PD8 cd tray is opening and closing, nonstop.

I called panasonic and they told me to do a hard reset on the system it seems to have worked on mine. Hold the power button continually while you unplug and replug the unit.

Disc drawer will not open

Try to hear a sound of of a running motor inside the unit. If you can hear it, the there's a broken or misplaced rubber belt. The belt drives the drawer open.
