My cd is not being read on my panasonic cd stereo system sa-ch64m?

I afraid to say the symptom indicates your unit's laser is faulty
First of all I would suggest you to clean the laser lens to see if it solves your problem.
1) Purchase a CD/DVD laser lens cleaner disc and run it through the system 5-6 times.
If you want, you can buy a CD/DVD laser lens cleaner disc by following this link-
2) If your unit is not under warranty then try this step otherwise it will void your unit's warranty.
If the cleaning disk does not work then remove the cover of the device, you may be able to locate the laser eye clean the laser with a soft clean cue tip or a cotton bud using isopropyl alcohol.Then check with a magnifying glass for any traces of dirt.
If cleaning doesn't helps then you will have to replace the laser diode and replacing the laser diode is very expensive because it requires the entire optical pickup to be replaced and realigned.Therefore I would suggest you to please first of all enquire about the labor,installation charges etc before going for the repair because in some cases the cost of replacing the laser inside the unit will typically exceed the cost of buying a replacement unit.

My LG RH4820w DVD player freezes while playing back DVDs. I can can get it to power off and on by holding the "Power" button down. I can then start playing the DVD again, but it eventually...

Sounds like the laser might be going out or dirty. You could try blowing some air in there to try and remove dirt. If that doesn't help then it might be going out.

CD player will load a CD but does not play it. The display reads error. CD can be ejected from the player by pressing eject.

Seeing how it won't detect the CD and everything else is fine it sounds like the laser eye went bad.Also if you have only tried 1 CD try 2 more different ones but you probably did.If someone else suggests try cleaning it with laser eye cleaner or whatever it's called,don't bother.There's not much that can get in there to dirty it up to the point of not working.It's probably a factory stereo correct.Either way it will probably cost a minimum of $100 for repair.Also after it is repaired,because of disconnecting the power it will need to be unlocked which can be done simply by calling a dealer,no cost to you.Write down the method and code though because every time the battery is disconnected it has to be done.If you would like a more accurate cost estimate,call United Radio Service in Syracuse,NY.I worked there about 12 years ago.They are on the net,toll free number.Ask for car stereo repair.Tell them your type radio/model radio and you were wondering how much it would cost to replace the laser eye.They should give you a fairly accurate estimate.When I was there,I think the eyes were $60,and any repair center has a minimum 20% parts price markup,$40-$60/hour labor,probably $10-$15 to ship it wherever,normally free return shipping.
Actually here is their link.
Good luck! Greg

Disks unredable

That sounds like the laser eye is bad,the eye that reads the CD/DVD.How old is your TV?The last time I worked on CD players,those things were priced around $60+ and that was in the late 90's.Also if you are considering repairing it,repair places have at least a 20% markup on parts,not to mention probably at least an hour labor which I am not sure of the current rate.If the TV has external input capability,I would just buy a new DVD player.You can probably find a decent one for $100 or less.Good luck!

Hi, how to i set the time on an akai ac-720 stereo? thanks, -martin


I tried to get the Manual or Information. But, i was unable to get any Information regarding this Model. The best i could offer you :-

You could purchase the Manual above which would have all the Details. I am afraid, but that's the best i could find. There is no Free Manual or even Paid with less than $14.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

AKAI LCT 2715:

Its busted. Try resetting it as a last resort, unplug the AC, wait 1 minute, then plug back in. If that doesn't work, its in need of professional service.

Your laser eye might be dirty or tired(out of alignment). Buy a cleaning kit, if it does not help try have someone who knows how to re-align it.
