The loading mechanism has jammed somehow. When powered on, the unit attempts to get to a known position. If that fails, the message you indicate is displayed. The only way to resolve this is to dis-assemble the unit and rebuild the mechainsm. This should NOT be attempted without the service manual. There is a particular way to re-assemble these so that the gearing is correct. There are small gears and levers that need to be aligned properly. Also, there may be a broken lever or gear that needs to be replaced. I have rbuilt a number of these and the parts (if needed) are cheap (<$4 total).

I wold suggest that you bring this to an authorized Panasonic service center.

DVD changer is jammed on my Panasonic Sa-pt770 Receiver


if you have 2 tiny screw drivers, if not, the tips of a butter knife might be skinny enough, you can try to insert them a wee bit into both sides of the tray and pry outward, carefully of course, and unjam the tray

Your system was an old carousel type CD changer. They do not make them anymore. The whole world is moving towards compact storage devices ( Hard disk / Flash drives ) and steering away from media like CD's , DVD's etc. Thanks to the internet, almost everything is available at your fingertips.
Today your system would be worth less than half of what you paid. In fact for half the amount you could pick up something similar with only one CD tray, but with a USB port for playing MP3 / Video files.

I have a panasonic sa-pt760 receiver. I get a chgr error when I power it up and the disk changer makes a grinding sound. Nothing else will work. I totally removed the disk changer and still get the same...


When this unit powers up, it goes through a "startup sequence" that results in the mechanism being in a known state. The error message indicates that this sequence did not complete correctly. The typical "fix" for this is a mechanism rebuild. It is common for a gear or two to get out of time with each other and cause this message. The rebuild process is not a simple one and should not be attempted without the service manual and some experience. It is rare for parts to be required for this fix.

Please seek professional assistance for this repair.

The CD loading mechanism is out of time and has not reset correctly. This cannot be reset. The loading mechanism must be dis-asembled and rebuilt. This is not a DYI repair. Any Panasonic service center can repair this for you.

Denon UDCM-M10 CD auto changer Disc slots won't open. Display says 'Err'. Any advice welcome.


These units attempt a "reset" operation when first powered up. This insures that the mechanism is in a known state and ready. Any failure to complete this reset will result in the error you see. Usually this is caused by the mechanism getting out of timing and requires a erbuild of the mechanism to get the timing correct. A jammed disc, or the forcing of the tray can cause this too. Without seeing the actual unit, I can not state for sure what the exact rpoblem is, but a repair for this problem usually costs less than $10 for parts. The cost is int he labor to completely dis-assemble and re-assemble the mechanism.

We have the RCA RS2767i Home Stereo with 5-disc changer and ipod dock. The CD Tray won't eject or shuffle...everything else works fine. It seems the disc tray isn't responding to anything. We read in the...


Let me respond with a possible solution although I'd bet that both of you already tried these.

The reason I checked into this is because I'm looking for a new mini system. I happen to be at Target and they only had 2 models - this one and a SONY. I certainly didn't want to buy the RCA given these problems, so I asked the salesperson, who seemed to have some knowlege.

As far as opening the tray on top, there is a button to push right under the tray. The button has an icon of a triangle on it. This seems to be somewhat of a standard icon for opening the tray or ejecting a CD (my car's CD has the same icon for ejecting a CD).

As far as only being able to get 3 CD's out, there is another button under the tray marked "disc skip". This rotates the tray. When you open the tray, you can only get to 3 of the CD's. When you push disk skip, it rotates the tray one position, so you can get the 4th one out. Another push and now you can get the 5th one.

Sometimes my CD changer doesn't shuffle the disks. If I only have 1 CD or DVD in it and push the tray open button, the disk stays in the unit and the tray revolves to an intermediate position. I push the button to put the tray back and try disc skip; that usually works.

If your problems are not solved per above, then I definitely do NOT want to get this.

Our sony hcd-hpz9 stereo will not allow the 5 disc changer to open. It will play disc 1 only. Any suggestions. It makes a rumbling noise. Is there a way to manually open the disc changer?


this is done by a belt drive. i have seen the belts get old and slip. try to gently pull the door open as you hit eject. If you get it to open and find that it will not fully open or close without assistance this is the problem.
