Question about Panasonic SC-HT740 System

SA-HT670 please wait problem

Seems I did the same damage by accidentally bumping one of the trays while open and it being forced back. I tried to re-align the trays but I don't know what is 'right'. Spabella mentioned removing the side of the tray to align the trays. Can someone expand on this?

I've got the same problem. The Changer block or traverse mechanism is a big cog work. One thing changed and its toast (I THINK) The white nylon gears are set and they are dependent on some cue to be moved. The left side of the block can pop off after the white top is removed, The side goes in and out to change ... plastic tabs. I'm pulling my hair out.

I've autopsied one after I bought another. The new one did the same as the old one right off telling me it looks like the issue is in the control, possibly the disk reader mechanism, or a glitch in the communication with the main board its tethered to with the ribon cables.

I'm searching for a reset hack/trick/ whatever, to reset it to factory. The problem is a glitch in the software, I Think.

Anyone have a clue on this?

I read there is a small wheel on top of the white plastic disc cover(take the units top off to see what i'm talking about), which there is, and it is used to align. It is done by inserting it at the bottum of the unit located front left side(just turn the unit upside down, no need to remove anything), however u need an extension to get the wheel up in the unit. I dont know what to use, especially to keep some type of extension from twisting inside the wheel while it tries to turn the wheel mechinism

  • First you to pull out the DVD tray assembly and check to make sure there is not anything that has broke inside there. Make sure nothing is blocking the trays from moving.
  • Now pull the side cover off. There is a spare gear on the top of the DVD tray assembly. You will take that and place it in the two holes at the bottom of the player. This will allow you to manually adjust the trays. If you don't have this gear you can align the tray manually but it has to be real perfect.

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Maybe if you ask it to OPEN the tray as soon as you turn it on and leave it that way it might move on to other functions. A hands-on tech would have to lay hands and eyes on it otherwise.

I am having problems with my SA-HT670 it is reading error code INIT and then WAIT. The 5 disc changer will no open and close properly


The CD loading mechanism is not resetting properly. When powered on, the entire mechanism goes through a startup alignment sequence. This is to be sure that the unit is in a known position and state. The init indication is for the "electonics" reset portion, the wait message should be present while you hear the mechanism move. The most common cause of this is a slipping belt or a jammed CD. Be cautious about trying to repair this yourself. It is easy to damage the gearing inside or to get it out of aligment. There is a good possibility that this can be repaired with either no parts or with a $3-$5 belt.

Says wait, won't play dvd's at all


Hi,
Yes you are right, this will happen only when tray mechanism is not working at that time lense will try to read but it will be still under wait condition,
to resolve your issue you need to replace entire tray with lense set to work properly.

I've just spent the last 3 nights trying to fix that same issue with my player. I ended up pulling out the dvd tray assembly, and making sure there wasn't anything broken inside or obstructing other pieces. Come to find out, my 1 year old had pulled on one of the trays and it pulled the tray off it's tracks. After that, it would just go to "init please wait" forever. I pulled the side track cover off and aligned the tracks manually. Everything had to be absolutely perfect or else you'd get nothing. After the fact, I realized that there were two holes in the bottom of the player that you can take a spare small gear (which is attached to the plastic cover on top of the dvd tray assembly) and stick it in there and manually adjust the tray positions to make sure everything is aligned properly. After messing with it three days, it ended up being quite simple to fix. Everything works like a charm now. If you need details, feel free to email me.
