Question about Panasonic SC-AK44 CD Shelf System

Open Question

CD Player My CD player on my Panasonic SC-AK44 stopped working. As the HiFi is out of warranty, and it's usually cheaper to buy a new one, I thought I'd have a look inside myself. The first problem that occurred was I would put a CD in tray 1, then change to tray 2 to insert another CD, and the one I put in Tray 1 popped out. The same thing happened when I opened the other 3 trays as well. Then I managed to get a CD stuck inside. When I tried to open the tray, it wouldn't come out, and was making a sound as if it was caught on something, or something was in the way. I have the system opened, got the CD out, and tried to re-assemble the CD player, but I have a couple of items that i'm not sure where they go, so I am looking for maybe a diagram that would show me how it should look, so I can make sure I have put everything back where it should be. Any/all help appreciated!!!

SOURCE: Disc Tray will not open

The unit will need to be dis assembled and repaired by a technician. One of the plastic gears may be broken or misaligned. If you are mechanically inclined you could attempt the repair yourself but be careful not to loose any of the parts.

SOURCE: We own a Panasonic Nitrix SC-AK330K Shelf System

Try to see if you can get it Fixed Locally....

Panasonic prices are pretty steep if you decide to send it in for repairs or order parts yourself and repair.

if parts still can be found since the SC-AK330K is a Discontinued Model

Cd player stop playing... disc, data or it simply keeps searching for the tracks on the cd. How can this be fixed?

Try cleaning the lens with a CD lens disk cleaner, see if that rectifies the problem. Hifi systems are notorious for dust buildup being an enclosed system with an exposed cd drive deck.

I lost the english version manual just want to know how to record from cd to tape

Try this, select "cd" as your source, and load a cd. Press stop.

Then load a cassette, press play and record for the tape, and then press play for the cd player.

Hope this helps.

NO DISK message

There is nothing an end user can do to fix this unit except to try and run a lens cleaning disc thru it. If cleaning the lens helps, you have just dodged a bullet. It says "no disc" because the laser pick up can't see, it is blind. It can't read any disc's so it says "no disc" even if there is one in it. I work at a Panasonic authorized service center and have repaired this exact model many times. The repair will cost about $125 or more to replace the laser. This is due to the high cost of the laser pick up.

Unless this is under the warranty, you really should just get a new one. This model of Panasonic normally has an issue with the trays getting jammed and are a technicians nightmare to repair. So, I don't really like to see them in my shop. It was a very bad design for Panasonic, they have had more trouble with the cd mech in this model than any other cd mech I have seen for them in the last 17 years I have been repairing them.

I am sorry to give such bad news, but it really is true. If I can be any further help, please feel free to let me know.
